Hacker in clandestine wiretapping case had alleged ties to Colombia police officials

The suspect arrested in Colombia’s most recent wiretapping scandal allegedly met with high ranking police officials numerous times before he was detained by authorities May, El Tiempo national newspaper reported on Thursday.

Former Bogota Police commander, Gen. Luis Eduardo Martinez, and the director of Police Intelligence, Col. Jorge Luis Vargas, will appear before the country’s Prosecutor General’s Office (PGO) to explain their alleged connection to Andres Sepulveda, a hacker who was caught spying on the Colombian government’s peace negotiations with the rebel group FARC.

Sepulveda was arrested on May 6 after agents from the Prosecutor General’s technical investigation team (CTI) raided an apartment in northern Bogota, where they discovered surveillance equipment used to intercept electronic communications.

The suspect was allegedly in possession of classified military intelligence including information about the government’s ongoing peace negotiations with the FARC guerrilla group in Cuba, and lists of demobilized guerrilla combatants. Soon after Sepulveda’s arrest, it was discovered that he had recently been employed by the campaign of presidential candidate, Oscar Ivan Zuluaga, to assist with “information security.”
