Judge Orders Arrest of Brother, Son of Guatemalan President

GUATEMALA CITY - A Guatemalan judge on Wednesday ordered the arrest of Sammy and Jose Manuel Morales, the brother and son, respectively, of the country's president for allegedly embezzling state funds in 2013.

The head of the Sixth Criminal Court of First Instance, Silvia de Leon, said Wednesday during the first hearing that there are indications that both, due to their relationship to Jimmy Morales, could obstruct the investigation of the Prosecutor's Office if they remain at liberty.
