"Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom said Tuesday he will grant a U.S. extradition request for former president Alfonso Portillo, who faces U.S. charges of money laundering related to the alleged embezzlement of $1.5 million in foreign donations. Colom said the country's courts have already approved the extradition of Portillo, and that he will respect those rulings." (11/15/11)
