By Sarah Grainger GUATEMALA CITY, Sept 4 (Reuters) – The head of presidential security in Guatemala resigned on Thursday after President Alvaro Colom said he found cameras and voice recorders hidden in his offices and home. Colom said the devices could have been used for espionage but did not specify who he thought had planted them or why. “This is a very serious infiltration in the presidential palace. We have found seven recorders, two hidden cameras and two similar devices in my private office,” he told a news conference. “There are indications there are more in the window of my house.”

  1. Just a distraction, nothing more. This president is the worst we have seen in years. He is making himself a victim, because 2 weeks ago the equivalent to about $10,000,000.00 of OUR money, dissapeared in the hands of congress. He and his wife, and her sister, are all part of a group that is interested in stealing all the money that we pay.

    The crime rates are at its highest these days, and he is doing nothing to stop it, as you can see.

    He is only interested in his image and making the poor people believe him just by giving them gifts and toys for the children. He defends the people that don’t pay taxes.
    His wife is a proven murderer, responsable for the deaths of a reporter and the mastermind behind the kidnapping and death of a highly known family in Guatemala.

    All this, is just a coverup.
