Colombia’s Prosecutor General charged Bogotá ombudsman Francisco Rojas
Birry with illicit enrichment because he allegedly received bribes from
suspected money launderer DMG.
Rojas Birry will not be taken into custody and can await his trial in freedom.
Rojas Birry’s attorney Luis Eduardo Salazar said he and his client were happy with the indictment and the probational freedom and look forward to the beginning of the process.
The Prosecution now has thirty days to present its evidence to the Supreme Court.
Rojas Birry is suspected of having received 200 million pesos (US$78 thousand) from DMG, the company whose executives are on trial for alleged money laundering and running a ponzi scheme.
