Rios-Montt sentenced to 80 years for Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity

sundance's picture

The trial of General José Efrain Ríos-Montt in Guatemala has ended and he has been found guilty! This trial was historic for being the first time in which a head of state was tried by the judicial system of his own country (not an international tribunal) for genocide. This process, which began in 1999, is a milestone for indigenous people everywhere and a victory for the Ixil Maya who suffered torture, disappearances, displacement and mass-murder during his brief but brutal reign of terror.

Trial of Rios Montt to Resume Tomorrow (April 30, 2013)!

The trial of Efrain Rios-Montt and Mauricio Rodriguez Sanchez is scheduled to resume tomorrow, Tuesday 30 April 2013 at 8.30am. The uncertainty of the trial seems to have been resolved, at least for now. I have included the email message sent to me as verification. This news has yet to hit the wire services. For more information on the trial, see the postings in the forum.

Urgent: The Trial of Efrain Rios Montt & Mauricio Rodriguez Sanchez: 04/20/2013

sundance's picture

Judges in the landmark genocide trial of former Guatemalan dictator Rios-Montt asked the country's Constitutional Court to decide if the proceedings should continue, as a move to annul the case brought an international outcry that justice be served in the Central American country's long and bloody civil war. Efrain Rios Montt, 86, is accused of overseeing the deaths of 1,771 Mayan Indians during the military dictatorship he headed. Messages to the US State Department and Senator Brown’s office asking for support for the trial to continue to a conclusion and protection for the witnesses, the prosecutors and the judges are encouraged and needed.

John Winthrop, a founder of the Massachusetts Bay colony considered this wave of illness and death [among Natives] to be a divine miracle. He wrote to a friend in England, "But for the natives in these parts, God hath so pursued them, as for 300 miles space the greatest part of them are swept away by smallpox which still continues among them. So as God hath thereby cleared our title to this place, those who remain in these parts, being in all not 50, have put themselves under our protection.
