Nephew of Colombia's army chief implicated in kidnapping by his anti-kidnapping unit: report
by Adriaan Alsema

The anti-kidnapping unit of Colombia’s national army kidnapped a person with the car of the nephew of army chief Nicasio Martinez who commands the unit, according to weekly Semana.

The kidnapping is one of multiple crimes committed by the GAULA, the military unit in charge of combating kidnapping and extortion, that has been revealed by the magazine.

Three soldiers have been charged with the kidnapping, the military said this week, but omitted the juiciest part, that the GAULA’s general commander, Lieutenant Colonel Cesar Augusto Martinez, is implicated.

I hate it when that happens, despite a lot of turmoil there in Colombia, the writers of this website, interestingly enough, seem positive about the country despite say, stories like this.
