The Guatemalan Supreme Court has approved a request by the country's attorney general to impeach President Otto Perez over allegations of corruption.
Claims that Perez had been involved in siphoning off customs revenue from the government have devastated the country's cabinet, and has already led to the resignation in May of Vice President Roxana Baldetti.
He has angrily dismissed the claims and refused to resign, but the Supreme Court held up a call by the attorney general and an United Nations-backed anti-corruption body known as the CICIG.
The matter has now been passed to Congress for approval.
