Stalled Uribe investigation referred to prosecutor general

An investigation into former President Alvaro Uribe's alleged illegal conduct while governor of Antioquia has been referred to the prosecutor general after languishing for eight years without movement under his presidency, Caracol Radio reported Wednesday.

The Colombian Congress' Accusations Committee sent the case to the Prosecutor General's Office, which will open criminal proceedings against the ex-president for the awarding of a contract in August 1997 to CONVIVIR, a network of vigilante and security cooperatives that was later banned.

The contract reportedly enlisted 15 men to prevent the influx of contraband cigarettes and liquor into certain municipalities of the department of Antioquia, at a cost of nearly $15,000 a month.

The investigation did not progress anywhere under Uribe's eight years as president, yet representative Camilo Andres Abril believes that there will now be no further delays to the proceedings as certain legal complications are avoided by the fact that the alleged misconduct occurred before he was head of state.

didn't have his filthy, bloody hands in?

Jeez.
