Guatemala: Congress Discusses Purchase of Ritz Continental

The building is owned by the Guatemalan Pediatric Foundation, located in the historic center and valued at $10 million.

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

The chairman of the Pediatric Foundation (FPG), Luis Genaro Morales, told Elperiodico.com.gt: "The FPG has a debt of 'about $3 or $4 million’ with the G&T Continental Bank. We were going to build a hospital but cannot because it is in the historic center. We have inadvertently gotten into trouble. However, there is no one better than the Congress to buy it because of the 158 offices that the Ritz could accommodate for its 50 committees, including a tunnel from the building directly to the Legislative Palace.”
