Two Other Suspects in Kidnapping of 10 People Arrested in Colombia


first_imgBy Dialogo May 06, 2011 On 3 May, Colombian authorities announced the arrest of two alleged members of a criminal group suspected of kidnapping ten people the previous week in a vacation home in the Colombian department of Antioquia (in the northwestern part of the country), the Army reported. On 2 May, the Public Prosecutor’s Office had announced the arrest of another suspect in southern Medellín, the capital of Antioquia, bringing to three the number of individuals linked to the case who are in custody. The most recent arrests “took place in the Belén neighborhood of Medellín, as a result of intelligence work begun by soldiers from the Military Unified Action Group for Personal Liberty (Gaula) as soon as the kidnapping of the ten citizens took place and thanks to the timely report by relatives,” the Army indicated. On 24 April, an armed group arrived at a rural property in the municipality of Sopetrán, in northwestern Colombia, apparently looking for members of a criminal gang. When they did not find them, they carried off ten individuals who were there, no indication of whose whereabouts has yet been found. According to the Army, “a rifle, a submachine gun, four pistols, a fragmentation grenade, a silencer, nine ammunition clips, and ninety-six live rounds,” among other items, were seized during the arrest operation. Among those arrested was a female juvenile.last_img read more
