La decisión del Gobierno de Guatemala de no renovar el mandato de la CICIG (Comisión Internacional contra la Impunidad en Guatemala) después de 2019 constituye un retroceso en la consolidación del estado de derecho.
The decision by the Government of Guatemala not to renew the mandate of CICIG (International Commission against Impunity in Guatemala) beyond 2019 constitutes a step backward in the consolidation of rule of law. In the last ten years this body, set up on request of the Guatemalan Government, has made an important contribution to the fight against corruption and impunity. The European Union has been a staunch supporter of its work, in cooperation with the attorney general.
