Guatemala’s congress formed a commission Thursday to investigate Vice President Roxana Baldetti in connection with a customs corruption scandal.
By law, the five-lawmaker commission chosen by lottery has 60 days to make a recommendation on whether to revoke Baldetti’s immunity from possible prosecution. However, congress called for the report to be fast-tracked for delivery May 14.
Guatemala has seen protests and growing demands for the resignation of the vice president, who denies any involvement and has said she does not intend to step down.
