Former Prosecutor Gunned Down In Colombia
In the midst of the largest drug corruption scandal in Colombia’s history, gunmen Sunday killed a former director of the federal prosecutor’s office in Cali, home base of the world’s biggest cocaine cartel.
Two men in a car shot Felipe Lopez at least six times outside his apartment in a Bogota suburb.
The shooting came a week after President Ernesto Samper’s 1994 campaign manager charged that the candidate knew the Cali cartel gave him $6 million for his election bid.
As regional prosecutor, Lopez would have been in a position to know about the donations.
