Georgio’s testimony will shed some light on other cases
Italian Georgio Sale, who was arrested last Friday, can probably shed some light on a few cases for Colombia’s Attorney General and the Accusations Committee of the House of Representatives. His testimony will likely help determine if they have a case against former magistrate, Jose Alfredo Escobar, and other government officials.
Sale was convicted and served five years in prison in Italy for money laundering and faces similar charges in Colombia. Despite the fact that a warrant for his arrest had been out since 2006, Sale risked returning to the country in an attempt to recover goods that were confiscated because they were tied to the activities of former paramilitary chief, Salvatore Mancuso, who was extradited to the United States.
