Oxfam International chairman Juan Alberto Fuentes held over Guatemala graft scandal



The chairman of the charity Oxfam International, Juan Alberto Fuentes, has been arrested in Guatemala.

 
He was detained as part of an investigation into a corruption scandal dating back to his time as Guatemala's finance minister.


No charges have been brought so far.


While his arrest is not related to his role at Oxfam, it will heap further pressure on the charity, which is still reeling from revelations that its staff hired prostitutes in Haiti.
