Guatemala: President Alvaro Colom accused of murder by the murdered man

Check out this CNN report (extract below) that has Rodrigo Rosenberg Marzano, now dead, accusing the President of Guatemala of his death from beyond the grave and explaining why his President had him killed in meticulous, 18 minute detail in the youtube video that follows (it’s part one of two, it’s nine minutes long and it comes with good English subtitles…you can link thru to part two once it finishes).

Heavy, heavy stuff.


(CNN) — The Guatemalan government has dismissed allegations that it was behind the death of a lawyer who left a video saying President Alvaro Colom would be to blame if anything happened to him.

The lawyer, Rodrigo Rosenberg, was shot dead Sunday while bicycling in Guatemala City.

A video surfaced Monday in which Rosenberg — seated behind a desk and speaking into a microphone — linked Colom and an aide to his death.

“If you are watching this message,” Rosenberg says on the video, “it is because I was assassinated by President Alvaro Colom, with help from Gustavo Alejos,” the president’s private secretary.

It was not immediately known when Rosenberg made the video. It turned up Monday after his funeral and was posted on YouTube and distributed to other media outlets by the newspaper El Periodico de Guatemala.

The government promptly responded, rejecting the assertions and saying they were meant to create “political chaos.”
