New evidence suggests that Andres Sepulveda’s wiretapping operation was much more extensive than originally suspected, Colombia media reported on Wednesday.

A day after his re-arrest, new charges were brought against presidential candidate Oscar Ivan Zuluaga’s former campaign worker, Andres Sepulveda, who was originally arrested for illegally wiretapping government dialogues with the FARC in Havana, according to reports by Semana Magazine.

The prosecution exhibited evidence at Wednesday’s hearing indicating that Sepulveda worked with others to infiltrate a number of Colombian national databases and had the “objective” of infiltrating the computer systems of Central American governments as well, including Nicaragua.
