Colombia’s Supreme Court on Thursday began deliberating whether to file criminal charges against former President Alvaro Uribe and if so, whether to send him to jail or not.

Uribe’s defense appears to believe the court has enough evidence to file fraud and bribery charges as the former president’s attorney, Jaime Granados, reiterated a previous request not to send Uribe to jail.

Magistrate Cesar Reyes has been investigating the evidence and considering the testimonies since October last year and presented his conclusions to the court on Thursday.

. . .

The assassination of one witness and the discovery of spying equipment in both Reyes’ office and home have put the court on red alert over the investigation into Colombia’s arguably most powerful politician.
