Former Colombian President Álvaro Uribe said Wednesday he had been recorded as a prisoner and charged the Common Alternative Revolutionary Force (FARC) with house arrest, a decision made “without evidence”.
“Today I was investigated as prisoner # 1087985 because of the confrontation of testimony against me, which was bought by FARC, its new generation and their allies,” said the former president through his account on the social network Twitter
“No evidence, just conclusions. They intercepted me illegally. They prevented lawyers from questioning their lead witness. I ask for transparency,” said Uribe.
