Welcome back to another week of Central American news. We believe in the power of information on Central America.
Guatemala is having a rough election campaign. Mario Estrada, a now ex-presidential candidate whose party is close to the Guatemalan government had been arrested in Miami last week because he would have asked the Sinaloa cartel to finance his campaign.
Now, it appears that he would have also conspired to murder two political opponents, according to U.S. investigations.
Guatemala’s general elections are at risk of being financed by drug cartels and stained by undemocratic power plays. Let’s see how the rest of the campaign and June 16 unfold.
Thank you for reading and see you next week.
