There’s been a lot of discussion lately about why U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and a number of other prominent lawmakers have become so vocally critical of the anti-corruption commission in Guatemala (CICIG).

But there is so much else positive that the CICIG is responsible for. Are some members of Guatemala’s ruling elite taking advantage of the situation? Good piece in The Hill by Daniel Wilkinson of Human Rights Watch explains the very strange situation.
