Rios Montt Trial
A Letter from Efrain Rios Montt
I am not responsible for the deaths of the thousands of people in this country. Although it may seem as though my actions have brought this misery upon us, I can assure you that I stepped into power only to help you people. My goal was the save you all. Do yo think that as a former pastor, I would allow the death of thousands of God's people? The men to blame are the Marxist rebels, who are trying to take over Guatemala with communism. I am allowing my army to protect you, not kill you. You must believe that my intentions are pure.
