The Information/Documentation (Info/Doc) Program provides information vital to political asylum cases including written affidavits and expert witness testimony. GHRC works with a national network of lawyers, legal clinics, law students and non-profit organizations to help open the door for persons seeking refuge from physical harm and danger in Guatemala.
Using 20 years of experience and archives, our Info/Doc Program works diligently on political asylum cases for those persecuted and marginalized in Guatemala. In particular, we assist political asylum candidates such as massacre survivors, indigenous persons, children, women, unionists, and community leaders, among others.
GHRC/USA also makes referrals to expert witnesses, academics and professionals who have special expertise on Guatemalan issues. Because proper documentation is so critical to a well presented asylum case, the project provides refugees who have suffered persecution the opportunity to avoid forced deportation.
