“A Guatemalan judge suspended the hearing [on Feb. 21] in which it was to be decided whether journalist José Rubén Zamora goes to a second trial for allegedly obstructing an investigation against him for which he was already sentenced to six years in prison.

The head of the Special Prosecutor's Office Against Corruption, Rafael Curruchiche, who attended the hearing, said that he asked Judge Jimi Bremer to suspend the appointment because the prosecutor in charge of the investigation was sick. This is the third time the hearing has been suspended.”
