IRB – Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (Author)
In a telephone communication with the IRBDC
on 11 January 1991, J. M. Simon stated that she did not research or
publish a report on Guatemalan exiles and/or guerrillas in
Nicaragua and added that, although she was in Guatemala during the
above timeframe, she has never been in Nicaragua.
As per our previous discussion, please find
copy of three pages from Central America Report: 2 November
1990, pp. 329-330, 9 November 1990, p. 339. The first two pages,
particularly p. 329, deal with an assassination attempt against the
director of the ACEN-SIAG news agency, who had returned to
Guatemala from exile in 1986 and established the newspaper La
Epoca. The newspaper went out of print after an attack in 1988.
Page 339 contains a letter by the director of ACEN-SIAG, written
after the assassination attempt.
Should additional information on the
requested subject become available in the near future, it will be
immediately forwarded to you.
