Nothing is much clearer 23 years later
On November 27th of 1989 an explosion at an altitude of 13,000ft took 107 lives. Authorities believe druglord Pablo Escobar was attempting to assassinate then-presidential candidate, Cesar Gaviria, who never boarded the flight. The explosives were likely carried on board by an unsuspecting passenger.
Today Federico Arellano is the attorney for 50 of the victims, who are still hoping for but have yet to see any kind of reparation. Arellano’s biggest accomplishment in the case thus far was three years ago, when the act was deemed a crime against humanity, which kept it from being subject to the statute of limitations.
