Join Iván Velásquez Gómez, UN High Commissioner for the International Commission Againt Impunity in Guatemala (CICIG) as he describes his battles against illegal security groups and clandestine security organizations in Guatemala - crimila groups believed to have infiltrated state institutions, fostering impunity and undermining democratic gains in Guatemala since the end of the country's armed conflict in the 1990s. The CICIG represents an innovative initiative by the United Nations, together with a Member State, to strengthen the rule of law in a post-conflict country. Before his post with CICIG, Commisioner Gómez was a prosecuter in Colombia, where he investigated the ties and relations of Former President Uribe to paramilitary groups.
