Three Police Sentenced to 25 Years

The Seventh Court of Criminal Sentencing sentenced three policemen to serve 25 years in prison for the extra-judicial execution of a man identified as Jorge Eduardo Rivera-Cabezas Klussman.

The crime took place on April 25, 2008 in a field in Zone 11 of Guatemala City, where the victim was driving his car and did not stop when ordered to do so by police.

The police who were found guilty were Israel Barco Arana, Julio Roberto Aguirre Martinez and Juan Carlos Jalal Caal.

During the trial, four other policemen were acquitted on charges of covering up the crime but there was not enough evidence to convict.
