International organisations call upon the Supreme Court of Guatemala to remove the immunity of Congressman Edgar Ovalle, a former military officer involved in torture, illegal detention and killings in the Military Zone of Cobán in the 1980s. In 2012, more than 550 bones of indigenous people, including women and children, were found in the Military Zone of Cobán. This is one of the largest cases of forced disappearances in Latin America. For over a year, the Public Prosecutor's Office has asked the Supreme Court to remove the immunity of Edgar Ovalle but the Supreme Court remains unresolved. This situation violates the right of the victims of the Creompaz case to justice. Read full press release in Spanish.
