The “Colombians for Peace” leader was in a taxi driven through the streets of Madrid by a Colombian taxi driver when it was hit by another vehicle. Her injuries are not believed to be severe, reported weekly Semana on its website.
“I have a strong pain in my back and in my arm, the doctors say I have very high pressure. The crash was very strong,” Cordoba tweeted.
Cordoba was taken to the hospital where X-rays are being used to determine the extent of Cordoba’s injuries.
Cordoba has previously accused the DAS of spying on her.
The senator recently cut short a trip to Europe, where she was campaigning for a “humanitarian exchange” of FARC hostages for incarcerated guerrillas, in order to return to Colombia to deal with charges of “FARC-politics” against her.
Cordoba did not attend the Inspector General’s official reading of the “FARC-politics” charges, on the advice of her lawyers. 200 people rallied outside the building in a show of support for the “Colombians for Peace” leader.
The Inspector General presented the charges against the senator based on alleged evidence seized from the computers of the late FARC leader “Raul Reyes,” and said that Cordoba had betrayed her country by calling for other Latin American to break relations with Colombia.
Cordoba has denied the FARC-politics accusations on many occasions, saying that she is being prosecuted forthe “crime of opinion,” and that the charges are “persecution,” which “come from the presidency.”
