A top Guatemalan anti-corruption prosecutor, Juan Francisco Sandoval, has been fired. He fled the country in the early morning hours on Saturday. Former judge Claudia Escobar knows the story well. She was forced to flee Guatemala after denouncing corruption in the judiciary in 2015. She talks with The World’s host Marco Werman about what it will take to root out corruption in the Central America nation.
