Colombia's trial of the century: fixer promised Uribe to take the rap

by Adriaan Alsema October 15, 2019

The fixer of Colombia’s former president Alvaro Uribe promised to “take all responsibility” for his attempts to seek defense witnesses, public television network Canal 1 reported Monday.

According to the transcript of a June 23 wiretap, the mafia lawyer told the president that “if there is a misinterpretation for reason X or Y, Diego Cadena will assume all responsibility.”

At the time of the call, both the former president and his fixer knew they were being wiretapped and that there was evidence indicating that the fixer was offering benefits to witnesses with the approval of Uribe.

President, I will tell you once more, you have always told me ‘Mr. Diego, I ask you the favor to be very cautious with this and to tell all people who give us testimonies to tell the truth. If there is a misinterpretation of this for motives X or Y, Diego Cadena will assume all responsibility.
