Guatemala's finance minister resigns amid corruption scandal
Guatemalan Finance Minister Dorval Carias resigned on Monday amid a deepening corruption scandal that has also featured calls for the impeachment of President Otto Perez. Communications Minister Victor Corado also tendered his resignation on Monday and three other ministers stepped down over the weekend after the country's attorney general asked the Supreme Court for permission to prosecute Perez over a suspected customs racket. The impeachment bid follows months of corruption allegations against leading officials, which in May prompted Perez to fire several senior cabinet ministers.
