Portillo on the Move

Former President Alfonso Portillo is being moved to the Matamoras military base because CICIG has information about a plan to assassinate him (El Periodico).

In other CICIG news, Portillo's security chief, Napoleón Rojas Méndez, was arrested almost two weeks ago for his involvement in a conspiracy to embezzle over $100 million dollars.  After evading authorities for a year, he was arrested in Belize and extradited back to Guatemala.  He, of course, was released on bail!!!

Something sounded fishy.  CICIG has launched an investigation into the judge that granted Rojas bail - Mario Efraín Najarro - accusing him of obstruction of justice and violating the constitution (Prensa Libre).
