Did Colombia's former chief prosecutor turn the prosecution into his own illegal spy ring?

by Adriaan Alsema December 3, 2019

Two opposition senators said Monday they were filing criminal charges against former chief prosecutor Nestor Humberto Martinez amid mounting reports claiming he ordered illegal wiretaps.

The criminal charges follow mounting claims and evidence that Martinez, who resigned in May, had ordered all kinds of illegal wiretaps and that the prosecution continues to carry out the illegal activity.

Acting Prosecutor General Fabio Espitia admitted on Sunday that two peace facilitators had been wiretapped, but failed to specify these wiretaps were illegal.

Espitia, one of Martinezí henchmen, personally impeded court-ordered inspections by the Inspector Generalís Office into alleged wiretapping practices reportedly overseen by his deputy, acting Vice-Prosecutor General Jaime Camacho.
