From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Uribe ‘should face investigation’ over death squad chief video
Thursday 08 September 2011
Video testimony from a jailed death-squad chief accusing former Colombian president Alvaro Uribe of sponsoring his illegal armed group was presented to Congress on Wednesday.
In the video, Pablo Hernan Sierra said he organised a militia operating from the Guacharacas ranch in 1996.
The ranch in Antioquia state, where Mr Uribe was then governor, was owned by the ex-president’s family.
Representative Ivan Cepeda, who presented the tape, said the video was recorded last month when he visited the prison where Mr Sierra is imprisoned for murder.
“I believe the time has come that the country launches an investigation into former president Alvaro Uribe for the presumed creation of paramilitary groups and for criminal acts that these groups committed in Antioquia and in many other places across the nation,” Mr Cepeda said at a news conference.
Mr Cepeda’s aides said Mr Sierra had been convicted of killing an indigenous leader.
