Former employees confirm Uribe's brother led death squad

by Adriaan Alsema June 13, 2018

Former employees of Santago Uribe, the brother of former President Alvaro Uribe, have confirmed alleged ties between the rancher and a death squad accused of more than 500 homicides.

Spanish newspaper El Pais received testimonies of multiple former employees of La Carolina, an estate that was owned by the Uribe family in the 1990s.

According to the former employees and other witnesses, the rancher formed and led the 12 Apostles paramilitary group from there.

The testimonies were given before a Colombian court on May 31, further complicate the legal situation of the Uribe brothers, who are both accused of having led some of Colombia’s most violent death squads.
