Arias denied probation

A Bogotá court denied probation for former Minister of Agriculture, Andres Felipe Arias, after making the determination that he could obstruct the investigation currently underway for his involvement in the Agro Ingreso Seguro scandal.

Magistrate Hermes Lara said Arias is still a risk to the investigation, in concurrence with the Attorney General’s office, which requested Arias’ arrest in July of 2011 arguing that Arias was trying to hinder the process by meeting with others involved.

The case against Arias is in the hands of the Supreme Court and a ruling could still take several months.
