A man accused of war crimes in Guatemala goes on trial in the United States Tuesday for allegedly making false immigration statements by not admitting his military past.
Jorge Sosa was arrested in Lethbridge in 2011 and has both Canadian and American citizenship.
He is accused of lying on his U.S. citizenship application.
A verdict is expected in a few weeks.
Sosa is also wanted in Guatemala, where he has been accused of taking part in a village massacre in 1982 in which 251 men, women and children were killed.
According to Matt Eisenbrandt of the Canadian Centre for International Justice, neither Canada nor the United States has pursued Sosa in relation to the war crimes accusations.
Eisenbrandt said Canada should have put him on trial for war crimes when he was arrested in this country.
