Signing of Memorandum of Understanding with the Judiciary

As part of our support for the Justice System, U.S. Department of State: Bureau of Intl. Narcotics & Law Enforcement (INL) and the Judicial Branch of Guatemala, signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the participation of Deputy Chief of Mission David Hodge and OJ President José Pineda Barales. This memorandum seeks to support the courts to help improve their management, by decreasing the significant number of unprocessed cases and optimizing access to justice for Guatemalans. We appreciate President José Pineda Barales’ commitment to strengthen the justice system in Guatemala and we hope to continue working on this important project with the new president of the Judicial Branch Nester Vásquez.
