Digitalizador

From Xeni Jardin's NPR report Guatemalan Archives May Help Locate Missing. Apparently the photo below (taken by Xeni, Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-Sharealike 2.0 license) indicates that the man in the shirt is an official digitalizador of the Guatemalan police.

Correction: On her Flickr feed for this photo, Xeni wrote: "I noticed that one blog referred to this photo and stated that this man works for the Guatemalan police -- that's not correct. the PRAHPN works under Guatemala's human rights ombudsman. While the documents they're working with were produced by the National Police (and the Policia Nacional were disbanded and reformed after the civil war) this project to preserve, digitize, and mine information from those papers is *not* initiated or controlled by the police. Hope that makes sense."

"The PRAHPN asks that you don't photograph faces here for concern over political violence."
