UN: Guatemalan lawyer orchestrated own contract killing to frame president

UN human rights investigators have determined that a Guatemalan lawyer to predicted his own assassination on video orchestrated his own murder to frame president Alvaro Colom. And it would have worked, too, if it hadn't been for those pesky kids at the International Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala.


I think that's possibly the most bizarre thing I've ever heard.

Those pesky kids and their dog!

You know, absent an autopsy finding of terminal cancer, I find this impossible to believe.

With an absent an autopsy finding of terminal cancer, I find it highly improbable.

This is strange:

"... Luis Alejos, a Rosenberg friend and business associate who at the time was Guatemala's minister of communication ...

"The investigator said Rosenberg sent Alejos the money to pay for the killing.

"Alejos is the brother of Roberto Alejos, the president of the Guatemalan Congress, and a cousin of Gustavo Alejos, who is President Colom's private secretary.

"In his videotape, Rosenberg said Gustavo Alejos would be among those responsible for the lawyer's death if it happened."

So, check it out. Three men called Alejos, two brothers and their cousin. The cousin in the president's secretary. One brother heads the congress. The other brother was minister of communication.

Rosenberg's tape said the president's secretary would be part of the conspiracy to kill him.

The UN investigator said Rosenberg paid his hitmen via the minister of communication, a cousin of one of the men he was actually accusing.

There's a link to the actual report of the investigation here.

more like guatemalan government is making up bizarre story.
