The battle in which the legal future of former President Álvaro Uribe is defined continues. Judge 41 of Bogotá, Laura Barrera, has denied the request for estoppel of his process —proposed by the Office of the Attorney General of the Nation— and decided that Uribe should continue to be linked to the accusations of procedural fraud and the alleged crime of bribery of witnesses . For its part, the prosecution seeks to appeal this decision before the Superior Court of Bogotá. When the Court ordered to investigate him, Uribe maintained that there was a “persecutory spirit” on the part of the high court, he defended his innocence and assured that he proceeded “correctly.” Criminal lawyer Francisco Bernate analyzes the issue and rules out the influence of current politics in the case of the former president.
