No one would have ever thought it possible. But Guatemala’s former military dictator Efrain Rios Montt has been charged with genocide and crimes against humanity. Montt is going on trial on Monday on charges related to massacres in remote highlands villages. In his term in the early 80s, Montt enjoyed the strong support of US president Reagan. On the next Burt Cohen Show, Victoria Sanford is guest. Sanford is anthropology professor at the City University of New York and has written extensively about Guatemala’s civil war. It is a truly amazing story. Don’t miss this one! Tuesday February 5, noon to one ET at wscafm.org, and Thursday 2/7 at 5 PM on WNHN 94.7 Concord.
Justice In Guatemala!
