The former president and the Oxfam’s chairman arrested as part of a corruption probe


On February 13, the former Guatemalan President, Alvaro Colom, and the former finance minister, Juan Alberto Fuentes – who is now chairman of Oxfam International –, were arrested by Guatemalan authorities as part of a local corruption investigation (Reuters, 02/13/2014).

The investigation is reportedly looking at buses procurement contracts for the capital city (amounting to USD 35 million) which were awarded to four companies through a bidding process, and were allegedly inflated.
