Ambassador Arreaga visited the Prosecutor’s Office against Crime and Extortion

Ambassador Luis Arreaga visited the Office of the Prosecutor against Crime and Extortion along with USAID Guatemala authorities to learn more about their results and work methodology.

This prosecutor’s office has carried out seven large-scale operations since 2016, in which more than 680 people accused of extortion have been captured, which represents a strategic attack to end these criminal structures that undermine the security of Guatemalans.

Through USAID, we support the transformation of security and justice institutions to help give Guatemalans back their confidence in them.
