Colombia's Prosecutor general's Office will issue an international arrest warrant for a former intelligence director who was granted political asylum in Panama, newspaper El Tiempo reported Saturday.

According to the newspaper, Prosecutor General Viviane Morales is set to indict former DAS director Maria Pilar Hurtado for the illegal wiretapping of supreme court magistrates, journalists, human rights workers and opposition politicians.

Sources told El Tiempo that it's a matter of days that the Prosecutor General's Office will issue an international arrest warrant for Del Pilar Hurtado and Bernardo Moreno, the chief of staff of former President Alvaro Uribe.

Both are suspected of having ordered lower-ranked intelligence officials to illegally spy on what they deemed government opponents.

Ms. Hurtado was appointed by Alvaro Uribe.



Medal of Freedom for Uribe.
