Guatemala City, Guatemala

Mining and Energy Minister Erick Archila (left) whispers to President Otto Perez Molina during the signing of the official convene between the Guatemalan government and Tahoe Resources & Goldcorp's El Escobal silver project via its local subsidiary Minera San Rafael. The signing comes two days after six locals were shot by the company's security guards. Since 2011, eight local communities have carried out plebiscites that have rejected nearly unanimously the mining project in San Rafael Las Flores, Santa Rosa. As of 26 June 2016, former President Perez Molina has been held on graft and corruption charges while former Mining and Energy Minister Erick Archila has a warrant for his arrest on similar grounds.
