Reflections Regarding the Las Dos Erres Massacre Cases in Guatemala
12 March 2013
On December 7, 1982, more than 200 civilians, including children, were killed in the village of Las Dos Erres in Guatemala by a specialized commando unit of the army. During this massacre, men were tortured and women were raped, leaving only three survivors. August 2, 2011 marked the end of a long legal battle with the sentencing of four army officers for their participation in the massacre.
The objective of this report is to share with the public the international perspective that LWBC gained by building upon the knowledge and experience of its team, volunteers and partners, in particular with respect to the cases relating to the massacre of Las Dos Erres.
