    On September 25, Congress authorized the creation of a committee to investigate the actions of the International Commission against Impunity in Guatemala (CICIG) between 2007-2019, as well as those of public officials presumed to have engaged in unlawful acts in collaboration with CICIG. The initiative was backed by the ruling party amid growing tensions between the government and the CICIG that resulted in the CICIG’s withdrawal from the country in early September. The committee is due to submit a report by January 10, 2020.
