(8 Oct 2019) Colombia’s powerful former President Alvaro Uribe is at the nation’s Supreme Court for questioning in a case involving alleged witness tampering.
The ex-chief of state arrived to speak with magistrates Tuesday in a case that has divided the South American nation.
Uribe is being investigated for his role in allegedly trying to influence and possibly bribe members of a former paramilitary group.
Several former paramilitary members allege Uribe’s lawyer offered cash in exchange for making statements in favour of the ex-president.
The case stems from accusations Senator Ivan Cepeda made several years ago accusing Uribe of being a founder of a paramilitary bloc.
Uribe has denied all of the accusations.
The former President’s court appearance is expected to set off rival protests.
