The Colombian Army captures the leader and five members of an armed organization

MADRID, July 24 (EUROPA PRESS) –

The Colombian Army has captured this Sunday Carlos Alberto Herrera Arcila, alias ‘Camilo’, leader of the armed organization Clan de Oriente, and five other members, all of them responsible for armed confrontations in the departments of Antioquia and Caldas.

‘Camilo’, who came to belong to the FARC (front 47), and to the Magdalena Medio Front of the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia, has been accused of extortion, homicide, forced displacement and drug trafficking, among other crimes, according to what the station W Radio has reported.

On the other hand, the country’s authorities have arrested two people allegedly involved in the death of social leaders in Huila and Santander, one of them a former member of the Colombian Army.

Victor Manuel Ospino, a former military officer, allegedly participated in the death of the union and social leader Sibaris Lamprea Vargas on September 10, 2022 in Barracabermeja (Santander), as published by RTVC Noticias.

The ex-soldier would have delivered information on the victim to members of the “Clan del Golfo”, heir to the already dissolved United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia (AUC).

The other detainee is Jailer Andres Camacho Cerquera, alias ‘Caqueteno’, due to his alleged responsibility for the death of social leader Alvaro Menza Pena and his daughter on August 4, 2020 in Pitalito (Huila).
