'DAS paid foreigner to spy on Cordoba'
Wednesday, 12 January 2011 06:59 Adriaan Alsema

Colombia's state intelligence agency DAS paid a foreigner to spy on then-Senator Piedad Cordoba while she was on a controversial visit to Mexico in 2007, reported Caracol TV on Tuesday.

The television network was given a declaration made before prosecutors by the DAS' former operations coordinator Fabio Duarte, who testified that the DAS paid $10,000 dollars to receive the bill of a Mexico City hotel, which was paid for by the Mexican Workers' Party.

In the testimony, the former DAS coordinator said the bill was given to former DAS director Maria del Pilar Hurtado, who fled Colombia in 2010 and is now in Panama where she enjoys political asylum.

According to Duarte, the hotel bill was taken to the presidential palace, because it was "of total interest" of then President Alvaro Uribe.

The former official testified that DAS paid the foreign spy $10,000 for the bill.
