Guatemala: Impunity: a question of political will
Despite recent government initiatives, which are recorded here, and an overall decrease in the numbers of "disappearances" and extrajudicial executions, there has been a marked increase in other abuses, such as death threats, harassment and other forms of intimidation. This report cites cases of continuing violations involving human rights monitors, peasants, trade unionists, students and academics, the press, the displaced, peaceful demonstrators, street children, captured members of the armed opposition and returning refugees. It also looks at cases before the civilian courts; the system of military justice; the lack of investigations into abuses committed under previous governments; intimidation of the judiciary; and the death penalty.
