O.A.S. Confirms Investigation into Shooting Death of Guatemalan Minor

As we have reported, the Organization of American States has been the only organization to “repudiate” the death of the Guatemalan minor at the hands of the B.D.F. even before an investigation was completed. But things are moving ahead and the O.A.S. confirmed today that at the request of both countries, it will be conducting an independent investigation of the April twentieth incident that led to the death of Julio Alvarado Ruano and in which his father and brother were wounded. A release says that O.A.S. Secretary General, Luis Almagro, has confirmed that “he will proceed immediately with the identification and deployment of the appropriate experts to carry out the investigation as soon as possible.” Almargo also urges both sides to redouble the confidence building measures in place to prevent future confrontations or situations that could put at risk the peace and stability between the two countries.
