New Document Reveals Executions by Guatemalan Army

Legacy Link

On Thursday, May 20, Human Rights Watch and three other human rights organizations released a document that was smuggled out of Guatemalan military files. The document reveals the fate of more than 180 individuals "disappeared" by Guatemalan security forces between August 1983 and March 1985. The document was given to international human rights advocates in late February, the week the United Nations-sponsored Historical Clarification Commission released its report on the country's thirty-five year civil war.
