Another top boss of the Oficina de Envigado, considered one of the most powerful criminal organizations in Colombia, has been released from prison and put on house arrest over the weekend.

A judge from Valledupar, a city in northeastern Colombia, announced this weekend that the request of Freyner Alfonso Garcia Ramirez, alias “Carlos Pesebre” to change his prison sentence to house arrest will be granted.

Pesebre is one of the leaders of the notorious Oficina de Envigado paramilitary organization, dedicated to drug-trafficking, extortion, money laundering and contract killing. The Oficina is named after the municipality of Envigado in the south of Medellin were it was born.

On the request of the defense, the judge granted Pesebre house arrest explaining that the subject is “the head of a family and jurisprudence must ensure the protection of children.” This means that the kingpin, sentenced to nine years of prison for criminal conspiracy, will walk out of jail on December 9 and spend the upcoming Christmas at home.
