You probably saw the incredible news of sustained, peaceful protests over the summer that culminated in the arrest of former President Molina, Vice President Baldetti, and other officials in his administration. Not long ago, these individuals seemed untouchable; now they sit behind bars awaiting trial on charges of fraud and other serious crimes. These investigations and arrests would not have been possible without the work of the UN-backed CICIG, an institution whose mandate was extended with the help of GHRC’s extensive work with the U.S. Congress.
