A frail, elderly woman, covered from head to toe in bright, colorful clothing approaches the witness chair. Her face is almost entirely covered. She is no more than five feet tall, and under all that clothing she can't weigh more than 100 pounds. She sits next to her translator. She speaks only Qeqchi, one of Guatemalas 24 officially recognized languages no Spanish.
The witness speaks quietly into a microphone, and her testimony is harrowing.
