Guatemala: Further information on extrajudicial execution: Mons. Juan Gerardi Condera

, Index number: AMR 34/037/1999

The prosecutor investigating the case resigned and fled to the United States on 7 October 1999 to seek political asylum after receiving repeated death threats since being appointed to handle the case.
