In January, the far-right Guatemalan president decided to end the agreement that allowed its presence in this central American country.
The International Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala (CICIG) presented on Tuesday a closing report that summarized its work in the defense of human rights with more than 120 high-impact cases analyzed, 70 disjointed criminal structures and 120 formal requests for trial.
"I contributed with all my effort, I gave my heart for a cause in which I believe," Commissioner Ivan Vasquez said when presenting his report at the international seminar The Fight Against Corruption and Impunity in Guatemala.
Before an audience of about 700 people, the head of the CICIG mentioned the indisputable successes of its management to the strengthening of the Public Ministry and the creation of the Special Prosecutor's Office Against Impunity (FECI).
“For a successful fight against power impunity and corruption, there was a need for a virtuous triangle, the research organizations (MP-Cicig) doing their homework, with two fundamental pillars, independent media and civil society,” Velasquez recalled.
