Guatemala has 1st Female Attorney General


GUATEMALA - Guatemala has its first female Attorney General, Claudia Paz, whom President Alvaro Colom swore in, and who he chose over five male candidates.

Colon spoke previously to representatives of civil organizations, who expressed a preference for Paz.

As Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Paz -who caps the rating the elections commission gave the candidates- said her prime objectives are fighting impunity and organized crime.

Paz, a 54-year lawyer, plans to start her four-year office evaluating her staff and maintaining co-operation with the International Commission against Impunity in Guatemala (Cicig).

This is the second process this year to name the Attorney General, after the first person, Conrado Reyes, was rejected by the Constitutional Court. He was seriously questioned by Cicig for supposed links with powerful groups involved in drug trafficking and for acting in their favour in the Ministry of Justice.
