Lawyers for young men murdered in Sucre (Colombia) denounce that the Prosecutor’s Office omitted information

Lawyers for the three young men killed in Sucre have claimed this Friday that the Colombian Prosecutor’s Office would have omitted many details that occurred during the murder.

“The prosecutor did not fully describe the torture and the way in which the young men were killed, who received blunt blows to the face, chin, lips, thorax, arms, inflicting intense pain with the handcuffs that were placed on them,” the magistrates reportedly said, according to statements reported by the newspaper ‘El Tiempo’.

In this sense, the lawyer Elver Javier Baquero has indicated that the objective of the police officers who held the young men was to torture them before proceeding to murder them.

“This situation cannot remain in impunity”, added Baquero, who has asked for exemplarity “at the national level, to guarantee the punishment and conviction of those involved”.

Likewise, the lawyers — and the Colombian Prosecutor’s Office — have requested that the police officers be “protected” with a prison sentence.

Preliminary investigations indicated that armed men had shot the victims repeatedly from a motorcycle. The victims’ relatives found the lifeless bodies of three young men after a police operation organized in connection with the murder of an officer in the area.

“The agents arrived at the point where the youths were, who tried to flee, and wounded one of them,” Indepaz explained in a publication on the social network Twitter. Subsequently, the police officers allegedly loaded the youths into a vehicle. “Hours later, the three dead appeared,” explained Telesur.

The events occurred on July 25 in the town of Sincelejo. Witnesses have assured that the person responsible for the murders was Colonel Núñez, who together with the rest of the accused tried to pass the victims off as members of a group of hitmen from the Clan del Golfo.

The Latin American country’s Public Prosecutor’s Office announced this week that it had arrested ten of the eleven police officers implicated in the murder of the three young men.

“In just 28 days, the Attorney General’s Office cleared up the homicide of three young men,” the Prosecutor’s Office has highlighted, announcing the issuance of an Interpol red circular to achieve the arrest of the agent who remains unaccounted for, Colonel Benjamin Nunez, who is believed to have fled abroad.

For his part, Nunez has stated that he intends to turn himself in when he has the security conditions. According to Núñez’s defense, the colonel has been presenting serious threat problems and for this reason requests the Colombian State to guarantee his security and that of his family once he presents himself before the competent authority.
