Fighting Back Against Crime In Guatemala
This short documentary examines the fight against corruption, impunity, crime and violence in Guatemala that was led by former Attorney General (and now Secretary for Multidimensional Security of the OAS) Ms Claudia Paz y Paz. By improving and renovating the judicial system with a gender based approach, Ms Paz y Paz was able to reduce impunity in the country and therefore reducing the sense of insecurity and homicide rates. Her belief that no one is above the law led her to a colossal fight against former president Efraín Ríos Montt who’s now proven guilty of crimes against humanity and genocide. Her legacy in Guatemala is an example for other countries of Central America on how to reduce violence and strengthening democracy in their political institutions.
