Lawyer Rodrigo Rosenberg is dead but he accuses Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom and two of his close associates of orchestrating his murder.
Rosenberg, who was shot dead last May 10 while riding his bicycle in Guatemala City, turned up in a pre-recorded video wherein he says, "If you are watching or hearing this video clip is because I have been murdered by the President of Guatemala Alvaro Colom with the help of Gustavo Alejos and Gregorio Valdez."
Rosenberg explained in his video that "the reason why I'm dead at the time you will be watching this video is because I was Khalil Musa's attorney until the day he and his daughter Marjorie were cowardly murdered by Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom with the full knowledge of his wife Sandra de Colom with the help of Gregorio Valdez and Gustavo Alejos."
Rosenberg's video which accurately foretold his death (although not necessarily who did it), with English caption, is here from youtube:
Kind of surreal but true. The shocking revelation has sparked outrage in Guatemala and now President Colom is fighting for the battle of his life, against an opponent he can no longer touch, an accuser who is pursuing him from beyond the grave.
