Colombia: Bogota Mayor Gustavo Petro reinstated
23 April 2014
The President of Colombia, Juan Manuel Santos, described as “controversial” the reinstatement of Bogota Mayor Gustavo Petro. However, he stated that “law is law” and that “as long as it exists and it is written”, the President must show the example and enforce it.
From daily The Morning Star in Britain today:
COLOMBIA: Sacked Bogota mayor Gustavo Petro hailed a Superior Tribunal ruling yesterday that he should be reinstated “within 48 hours” as a victory for city residents.
The leftwinger and former M19 guerilla was the victim of a political decision by right-wing Inspector General Alejandro Ordonez who ordered his removal for sacking privateers in charge of Bogota’s refuse disposal.
President Juan Manuel Santos had rejected an Inter-American Human Rights Commission call for a stay of execution.
