MADRID, May 8. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The Supreme Court of Colombia has dismissed the complaint filed by the candidate for vice president of the Historical Pact, Francia Márquez, against the president of the Senate, Juan Diego Gómez, who related her to the guerrilla of the National Liberation Army (ELN).
“I had not wanted to refer to his party that accompanies the ELN, active in terrorism, to his vice president and celebrates the appointment of this woman, and that the former FARC and some dissidents have also expressed themselves in favor of his presidential campaign,” Gomez said during a debate.
The complaint has been rejected “lack of elements and actions” that allow an investigation to be opened. “According to what has already been stated, the Chamber clearly sees that said complaint lacks the minimum elements required to activate the criminal prosecution and the consequent launch of an investigation, even in the preliminary phase,” says the ruling, collected by the radio station W Radio.
In addition, it adds that “in said dissertation Gómez did not make any direct mention of the name of Márquez as she affirms in her complaint, but the party that promotes it, trying to mark some ideological differences between it and the Conservative Party on various issues of national interest. “. However, the Court has highlighted that the senator is protected by a comprehensive jurisdiction.
