Former Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos has labeled the allegations against him for alleged responsibility in the country’s legal proceedings against his predecessor Álvaro Uribe, who was investigated for alleged procedural fraud and bribery of witnesses, as “defamation”.
“How does he get this if I haven’t spoken to a judge since I left the presidency?” Asked Santos in an interview with Semana magazine in which he said that “a in this country has this Separation between Uribe and Santos caused nothing but damage. “
“I would love to sit face-to-face with Uribe and tell him: We can agree on this and that and that. What happens is that he has a political party and I’m just a past president,” he said before pointing out that the ex-president had accused him of “the human and the divine”.
Even so, he insisted that he “forgive” Uribe and that he “holds no grudges” and “is ready to sit with him” before calling on current President Iván Duque to work on “unifying the country “.
