Colombian police authorities announced Tuesday that investigators are analyzing some 9 billion files found on the computers of “Mono Jojoy,” the FARC commander who was killed last Wednesday. According to W Radio, the National Police and Prosecutor General’s Office has a team of 48 investigators working day and night on the files.
On Saturday, national police commander General Oscar Naranjo said that the analysis of the files could take months, because of the large amount of data.
According to President Juan Manuel Santos, the confiscated computers and USB cards will provide the military with valuable information about the guerrilla organization.
