The party allegedly occurred Saturday afternoon and went on into the night, and according to information received by the Colombian radio station, a number of former politicians were heavily intoxicated.
Apparently, former bussinessman Eduardo Davila Armenta assaulted fellow prisoner Jaime Bravo, and broke glasses and a door.
Davila Armenta is under investigation for alleged links with paramilitary groups and for the 2007 murder of a woman in Santa Marta. He is the brother of former Magdalena Governor Jose Domingo Davila Armenta, also in prison for paramilitary ties.
The director of Colombia’s prison authority, INPEC, General Gustavo Adolfo Ricaurte, has not been reached for comment regarding the truth of these stories.
The prison director at La Picota was replaced in February for allegedly allowing political prisoners accused of “parapolitics” to hold parties in the facilities, but it appears that the congressmen just can’t be restrained.
