As Guatemala’s first female attorney general, Claudia Paz Y Paz has made unprecedented strides in the prosecution of organized crime, political corruption, and human rights. In addition to securing convictions against the four Guatemalan soldiers found responsible for the 1982 Dos Erres massacre, she successfully brought Ríos Montt, the former president who presided over Guatemala’s scorched earth campaign, to trial. Paz y Paz was recently honored by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and will receive the 2013 Judith Lee Stronach Human Rights Award from The Center for Justice and Accountability on May 14, 2013 in San Francisco.
Commentator: Richard M. Buxbaum is the Jackson H. Ralston Professor of International Law (Emeritus) at UC Berkeley.
