Brave women break the silence and impunity in Guatemala

For the first time a Guatemalan court has recognized sexual slavery as a crime against humanity and a weapon of war, applying international human rights standards. The sentence orders reparations measures to honor the women through health and housing programs, as well as measures to educate the next generations and the military about the severity of violence against women and respect for human rights.

Impunity Watch together with other international organisations congratulates the Guatemalaen justice sector for this great step forward for female victims of sexual violence. See the press release in Spanish and in English
