Uribe's fixer leaves Colombia after prosecution announces 'decisions' in criminal probes

Uribe’s fixer leaves Colombia after prosecution announces ‘decisions’ in criminal probes
by Adriaan Alsema October 11, 2019

Former President Alvaro Uribe‘s fixer left Colombia on Thursday, one day after the prosecution announced steps in criminal investigations against the self-proclaimed “gangstattorney.”

Lawyer Diego Cadena told W Radio that he had gone to Miami and stressed he would continue to cooperate with Colombian justice if required to do so by the prosecution.

Acting Prosecutor General Fabio Espitia told press on Wednesday that “decisions” in the multiple criminal investigations against Cadena “will be taken relatively soon.”

A day later, the mafia lawyer left the country.

The mafia lawyer’s alleged tampering of witnesses in the case against the former president has put Cadena in tremendous legal trouble.

On Tuesday, Uribe admitted publicly that his fixer paid a witness after the Supreme Court opened a criminal investigation against the former president on fraud and bribery charges.
