Guatemala news: The presidency's reeling

May you live in interesting times, Otto. Mike Allison over at his blog dedicated to Central American politics has been covering this one closely, he's the guy to read and here's how his post today starts:
"Earlier today, the presidents of the Central Bank (Julio Suarez) and Social Security Institute (Juan de Dios Rodríguez) were arrested by Guatemalan authorities. Over a dozen other officials were arrested including the vice president of the Social Security Institute. The charges range from fraud, conspiracy, insider trading, illegal collection of fees, and active and passive bribery."
