Guatemala: Further information on fear for safety/legal concern

, Index number: AMR 34/030/1999

On 23 July 1999, Guatemala's Ninth Court of Appeals in Antigua Guatemala ordered a re-trial in the case against Cándido Noriega. The court ruled that there had been anomalies in the course of the April 1999 proceedings in El Quiché, which had absolved Noriega for the second time of the charges against him. He will now remain in custody awaiting his third trial for alleged human rights crimes.
