Uribe's alleged victim urges action 'to avoid further obstruction of justice'

by Adriaan Alsema October 15, 2019

Opposition Senator Ivan Cepeda said Tuesday that he would request Colombia’s prosecution to seek the arrest of former President Alvaro Uribe‘s fixer “to avoid further obstruction of justice.”

Cepeda is the victim of Uribe’s alleged fraud and bribery practices that are currently investigated by the Supreme Court.

The senator last week accused Uribe of violating a gag order over the former president’s public response to the Supreme Court’s announcement it had formalized the fraud and bribery investigation.

Cepeda’s counterattack
On Tuesday, the opposition senator stepped up pressure on authorities to effectively impose the law in relation to the powerful but allegedly criminal former president.


(Senator Cepeda's father, Senator Cepeda, was himself assassinated by right-wing forces in Colombia.)
