The United States is Committed to Fighting Corruption and Impunity

REF# 2018-44

The United States is aware of the Guatemalan Government’s decision not to renew the International Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala’s (CICIG) mandate to operate in Guatemala.  As many senior U.S. officials have stated, we believe that CICIG is an effective and important partner in fighting impunity, improving governance, and holding the corrupt accountable in Guatemala.  The United States will continue to support Guatemala’s fight against corruption and impunity, and views this fight as an integral part of the U.S. – Guatemala bilateral relationship.
