Guatemala’s ex-president back in court facing corruption allegations – Los Angeles Times

Guatemala’s former president was back in front of a judge on fraud charges Friday morning after spending the night in a military jail.

Otto Perez Molina went from president to prisoner on Thursday after his resignation was accepted by the nation’s Congress.

The 64-year-old former general stepped down after an arrest warrant was issued against him late Wednesday in connection with his alleged role in a corruption scandal that saw officials take kickbacks for reducing import taxes for companies.
