Whose fail is it?

Guatemala wants the head of the emergency response agency (Conred) to be dismissed as the opposition politicians stated Conred failed to warn about the recent vicious eruption of the Fuego that claimed almost 100 lives.

Mario Taracena, who is a senior opposition figure, demanded that the investigation must be conducted to learn whether there was criminal negligence.
