Possible reputation damage
Oscar Berger's government today opined that the murders of three dodgy Salvadorean politicians over the weekend could damage Guatemala's international image. This would presumably be its well-established reputation as the place to live if you want to knock off a Bishop or torture your girlfriend...with impunity. The elimination of individuals that are themselves representative of, shall we say, a dubious track record on human rights, will only serve to confuse foreign observers as to where the country actually stands on the slaughter of innocents!
