Uribe denies leak from the Military
Former President of Colombia, Alvaro Uribe, denied that a member of the Colombian military leaked the coordinates of locations where military operation were supposed to be suspended as part of the peace process, so guerrilla members could be picked up and transported to Havana, Cuba, where they would participate in peace talks.
“That information isn’t known because there are leaks from the Armed Forces but because this administration negotiated it with Farc. And who do we hear it from? Reporters, politicians, those close to the peace process and Farc, who reveal it,” Uribe said in a radio interview.
“Now they want to cover up the issue and they want to blame it on a leak calling it betrayal (…) Mr. President, betrayal of the nation is one of the crimes your Government is committing because it allows soldiers and police officers to be murdered and those crimes are left unpunished. That’s betraying your country,” Uribe said.
