This has been the reaction to the arrest warrant against Álvaro Uribe

The Supreme Court of Colombia ordered the arrest of former President Álvaro Uribe on Tuesday for a crime of bribery and manipulation of witnesses. The president, who ruled the country between 2002 and 2010, will have to carry out the arrest from his home. “The deprivation of my freedom causes me deep sadness for my wife, for my family and for the Colombians who still believe that I have done something good for the country,” he wrote on Twitter after hearing the news. The court is investigating a file according to which several witnesses, around a dozen, received compensation in exchange for offering testimonies that favor the current senator.
