A reporter's notebook from Miles O'Brien and I on why people in the US should pay attention to the genocide trial of former US-backed military dictator Ríos Montt in Guatemala, which is in its final phase this afternoon.

Screengrabs from video I just shot, listening to Ríos Montt's testimony in the genocide trial (a few feet away from the defendant). Highlights from his testimony also in this BB post.

Brief update from Guatemala on the "estado de sitio" (state of emergency or state of siege) declared today. ~3500 Army troops, police sent in to crack down after protests against a canadian-owned metals mine some 45 mins from the capital here. Related news: US Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) met with Guatemalan president Otto Perez Molina to discuss counter-terrorism cooperation, and how US and Guatemalan militaries can work together "to improve central american security."

Hello from the court in Guatemala City, where the historic genocide trial of former US-backed military dictator Rios Montt today reconvened.

It's complicated. Most everyone involved in the prosecution side seems to feel that the article you reference was extremely ill-advised, ill-timed, regrettable. It's notable that it cites only one source: the author himself. But yes, the head of state's history as a military officer during that era is no secret. Not news to anyone in this country. He has immunity from any prosecution while he remains in office.
