A Guatemalan court sentenced four former military officers to 6,060 years in prison each on Tuesday for the slaughter of more than 200 civilians in 1982 during the country's civil war.
"This court unanimously declared the accused as perpetrators of murder. For this crime, a sentence of 30 years in prison for each victim comes to a total of 6,030 years," the court said in its decision.
In addition, the court sentenced each former officer to another 30 years in prison as a "crime against humanity by state security forces," bringing the total to 6,060 years in prison for each man.
