Guatemala’s vice president resigned Friday amid a customs corruption scandal that implicated her former private secretary and opened her up to an investigation, President Otto Perez Molina announced.
With a sober expression on his face, Perez Molina said Roxana Baldetti had abandoned her offices in the presidential palace and he was informing congress. He called the decision “brave” and thanked her for her service.
“Her resignation is due to a personal decision with the only interest being to leave her office voluntarily, to submit herself to and cooperate with whatever investigations may be necessary and above all within the due process,” Perez Molina said.
