Jaime Granados, attorney for former Colombian President Álvaro Uribe, insisted on the “absolute” innocence of his client this Wednesday after the Colombian Supreme Court (CSJ) ordered his house arrest for alleged procedural fraud and bribery of witnesses.
In a statement, Granados pointed out that the “unfair” decision to put Uribe under house arrest had “deeply disappointed” him and criticized the legal team for finding out about it “through a press release”.
It has indicated that Colombia “should know” that the former president “has not asked anyone to bribe witnesses, nor has given instructions on how to obtain witnesses, which, as it is legitimate, is limited to verifying the information to demand. “.
“We are absolutely convinced of the absolute innocence of President Álvaro Uribe,” repeated Granados, making sure that he will continue to work “so that the country knows the whole truth as soon as possible and ends this terrible injustice.”
