Guatemalan president faces judgment day in Congress

Guatemalan President Otto Perez speaks during a press conference at the presidential house in Guatemala City on August 31, 2015Guatemala’s Congress convened Tuesday to debate whether to strip embattled President Otto Perez of his immunity and force him to face prosecution over massive corruption that has sparked unprecedented protests. Protesters demanding the conservative leader’s ouster formed a cordon outside Congress to protect lawmakers as they arrived, after a separate group of demonstrators initially blocked the building’s entrances. A congressional investigative committee recommended three days ago that lawmakers vote to revoke Perez’s immunity, which would trigger a criminal trial and possibly force him from office.
