The Supreme Court may order the former senate president Nancy Patricia Gutierrez to be taken to jail for her alleged involvement in the illegal wiretapping scandal.
The request for the arrest of Nancy Patricia Gutierrez will be presented to the Criminal Court for allegedly illegally obtaining from intelligence agency DAS information about the a visit of former senator Piedad Cordoba to Mexico.
A former sub director of DAS Martha Ines Leal said before the Prosecutor General’s Office that she gave illegal surveillance information about Cordoba to Gutierrez. This information by was used by Gutierrez in a debate against Cordoba for supposed links to “parapolitics”.
“Maria del Pilar [Hurtado] asked me to hand over information to Nancy Gutierrez … so that she would have information that would support a debate that Congress was going to have regarding what was in the apartment of the senator [Cordoba]” said Leal.
The Supreme Court will decide Wednesday whether or not to sentence former senator Luis Humberto Gomez Gallo and Juan Martinez Sinisterra.
Gutierrez is currently under house arrest while being investigated for her alleged ties to paramilitary death squads.
