August 1991

Read the report (pdf)

Since the military overthrow of the democratic Guatemalan government in 1954, soldiers and policemen have tortured and murdered with abandon while tens of thousands of extrajudicial executions and disappearances have never been investigated. Guatemala: Getting Away With Murder details two forensic missions which examined the flawed medical and scientific procedures applied in the few death investigations that were conducted in Guatemala.
