‘Mafia planning to assassinate journalists who revealed ties between narco and Colombia’s ruling party’

Colombia’s mafia is allegedly planning the assassination of three journalists who revealed that the country’s ruling elite conspired with narcos to rig the 2018 elections in favor of President Ivan Duque.

Press freedom foundation FLIP sent out an alert after a senator shared evidence that members of criminal organizations met on Saturday last week to plot the assassination of journalists Gonzalo Guillen, Daniel Mendoza and Diana Lopez.

The audio additionally revealed a plot to assassinate Beto Coral, a popular pundit on Twitter who has frequently clashed with Uribe over evidence the former president has been in bed with the mafia since the 1980s.

. . .

Despite the “imminent threat” of assassination, the National Protection Unit (UNP) has refused to provide protection to the journalists who published the evidence of Duque’s far-right Democratic Center party’s ties to the organization of jailed drug trafficker Marquitos Figueroa.
