written by Jamie Vaughan Johnson March 1, 2017

US authorities on Monday requested a warrant for the arrest of Colombias former agriculture minister amid concerns that he wants to flee to evade criminal prosecution in Colombia.

Andres Felipe Arias a.k.a. Little Uribe who is facing a 17 year sentence for embezzling funds worth over $20 million meant for poor farmers was arrested in the US in August last year but later was released on bail.
