Two unknown assailants on Tuesday made an attempt on the life of Ivan Andres Cortes, the assistant magistrate to a Supreme Court judge targeted in the illegal wiretapping operations of government security agency DAS.
The official reported the incident in the city’s San Fernando police station, where he was attended to by General Cesar Augusto Pinzon of the Metropolitan police.
The general told reporters, “Tomorrow [Wednesday] we will deliver a report on the case. We are making progress in investigation of the bullets to determine what type of missile was used.”
Pinzon added that Cortes would now receive special protection from the police.
Cortes worked as the assistant magistrate to Supreme Court Judge Jorge Luis Quintero Milanes, who was a victim of the DAS’s illegal surveillance and wiretapping operations.
