The state of Colombia vs Alvaro Uribe Part 1: the legal defense

by Adriaan Alsema October 14, 2019

Colombiaís former president Alvaro Uribe, his attorneys and his allies have given hints about their legal defense strategy and political offensive.

The legal defense strategy seeks not just to squash the fraud and bribery charges, but also prevent the accumulation of evidence that could be used to sustain more serious accusations made against the former president.

The political offensive seeks to discredit the judiciary and in particular the magistrate presiding over the case.

The legal defense
Uribeís attorneys have a mammoth task before them; the defense against the fraud and bribery charges is severely complicated by the other criminal accusations that are also at the court.

These charges include the former presidentís alleged complicity in homicides and massacres, and could put Uribe away for life, the fraud and bribery charges cannot.
