Police arrest Twitter user angered by slain attorney's YouTube videos

An e-revolution in Guatemala has politicians in power and prominent financiers in a panic. Just this week, Twitter got a man arrested and YouTube videos are giving a slain attorney a voice.

Guatemala_Lawyer_Killed_GUA It all began after gunmen shot a prominent attorney in the head while he was riding his bycicle weeks after two of his clients were killed. 

Just when every one thought the attorney had been silenced forever, videos of him appeared on YouTube.

In the videos, the attorney appeared like a haunting ghost naming the people who had orchestrated his death. The attorney accused the president, the first lady and two associates of planning his clients killings after they had declined to participate in a multimillion-dollar money-laundering scheme.

Jeanfer007 After watching the courageous attorney on YouTube, Twitter user @jeanfer, known as Jean Ramses Anleu Fernandez, sent a Tweet.

His Tweet in Spanish: @Jeanfer: Primera accion real "sacar el pisto de Banrural" quebrar al banco de los corruptos #escandalogt.

In the Tweet, Anleu Fernandez suggested his followers should withdraw money from a bank the attorney said was involved in the scheme. 

Prensa Libre reports that seven hours later police raided his home, took his computer and arrested him. The newspaper reported Anleu Fernandez is being accused of inciting panic and was fined $6,500.

Anleu Fernandez's blog and Twitter account have been shut down, but a video of his release on Friday is circulating on YouTube showing his first Tweet while still handcuffed.

In Guatemala the protests continue. Hundreds of Twitter users are re-tweeting his comment to protest the arrest and thousands are tagging their comments under "#escandalogt" to classify the subject.


Demonstrators protest against President Alvaro Colom at the central park in Guatemala City, Friday. Colom faces mounting opposition and calls for his dismissal due to the accusations made by a murdered lawyer who left a video accusing the president of ordering his killing. (AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd)
