GENEVA (3 April 2018) – An independent expert appointed by UN Human Rights Council has called on the governments of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador to underline their commitment to fight vice and corruption by ensuring the selection process for each country’s attorneys general is transparent and fair.

The so-called Northern Triangle countries are due to appoint new attorneys generals beginning next month.

“They will have a key role to play in breaking up the spiral of violence in these countries,” said the Special Rapporteur on the Independence of Judges and Lawyers, Diego García-Sayán.
