Judicial Scandal in Colombia

Radio Caracol reported the resignation of Jorge Noguera Cotes, former DAS (Administrative Department of Security) director, as consul in Milan, after being called for questioning by the General Prosecutor Office. Noguera Cotes is being investigated for alleged electoral fraud in 2002.

The alleged fraud would have favored three current senators from the political front of the paramilitary movement (Bloque Norte de las AUC).

In mid April Radio Caracol website quoted President Uribe characterizing Norega Cotes as a honest and transparent man who, however, should go to jail if proven guilty.
