Uribe ignores court, calls columnist child molester and gets sued again

written by Adriaan Alsema July 15, 2017

Former President Alvaro Uribe on Twitter took his aggressive behavior against journalists another step further on Friday, calling a satirical columnist a “child molester” on Twitter.

Uribe’s outburst followed a satirical column in which Semana magazine columnist Daniel Samper, the nephew of former President Ernesto Samper, made fun of Uribe’s regionalism and harshly reminded the president about his expected appearance before a transitional justice over his stained human rights record.

Uribe confirmed that “child molester Samper” had offended Antioquia.

. . .

Samper immediately announced legal action against the increasingly erratic former president, whose family was intimately close to the Medellin Cartel. In the 1990s, Uribe was an active promoter of the formation of paramilitary groups that ended up committing tens of thousands of human rights violations.
