I wasn't privy to all of the intelligence that was coming in about Guatemala, but I did see the traffic that was coming in from Guatemala City, because it was very relevant to me, and of course I exchanged what I had with the chief of station in Guatemala City.

PROFILE: GUATEMALA

The verdict was short lived, however. Sr Rios Montt, had been found guilty of overseeing the murder by the armed forces of over 1,700 members of the Maya Ixil population. Hardly had the ink dried on the sentence when Guatemala’s Constitutional Court ordered that all the proceedings be declared void, the order backdated to April when one of the presiding judges had suspended the trial because of a dispute with another judge over who should hear it. It was unclear when the trial might restart. The conviction had been hailed as a landmark for justice in troubled and turbulent Guatemala, where, astonishingly, an estimated 250,000 people died in the civil war which lasted from 1960 to 1996.
