Guatemala - Annual report 2006

The 1960-96 civil war still affects people’s attitudes and behaviour and since 2002, former paramilitaries involved in many rights violations have demanded extra compensation from the government for “services to the country.” The media has several times been victim of their anger. On 1 March 2005, Erwin Silva, Carlos García, of the TV station Telediario, and Carla Solórzano, of Radio Universidad, were beaten by shovels and machetes during a demonstration by ex-paramilitaries in the capital on 1 March. Rolando Hernández and Arnulfo Ortiz, of the TV station Vanguardia Informativa, and Edwin Paxtor, of TV Enfasis, were similarly attacked in the southeastern town of Chiquimula on 11 July.
