I am not sure how everyone, including journalists seem to have missed that Rios Montt's guilty verdict was over turned by the constitutional court AGAIN. Please get your facts correct. Clearly, you are not following this story! He is out on appeal and spent one night in prison. This is no victory for the Mayan people in Guatemala. Get your facts straight. The Guatemalan war crimes tribunal, which found former dictator Efraín Ríos Montt guilty of genocide before the sentence was struck down by the country's constitutional court, announced last week that the re-trial would not begin until April 2014.
