The condemnation was confirmed in Guatemala last February of two soldiers for raping indigenous women who had to wait more than 30 years for justice. They are 11 women, today over 70, who between 1982 and 1983 were subjected to sex abuse at the military base of Sepur Zarco, in northern Guatemala. The soldiers were recognized as guilty of crimes against humanity for sexual violence and homicides. It is the first time in a country that a case of the kind has led to the condemnation of soldiers.
