GUATEMALA - New appeal against the presidential couple's divorce

A group of lawyers filed April 4 in the Supreme Court appeal to prevent the divorce of President Alvaro Colom, intended to allow his wife, Sandra Torres, to circumvent the ban on standing for president. This is the third appeal against the divorce. The lawyers believe that this approach "undermines the public interest" because it aims to "circumvent or override" a constitutional ban.

Ms. Torres justifies his request for divorce by his desire to "marry the people."
