GUATEMALA : Court Throws Out Rios Montt Genocide Conviction; Trial Restart Ordered.
Aged former strongman Gen. Efrain Rios Montt, 86...has gotten a reprieve...after a top court threw out his 80 year conviction for genocide against 1,771 Mayan indigena in 1982-83.
His trial must be restarted from the 19th of April...the date his defense lawyers walked out.
The court ruled 3-2 that he was left however briefly...without legal representation.
It means closing arguments must be delivered again.
