The Second Municipal Criminal Court in Chiquinquirá (Boyacá) issued a preventive measure with imprisonment against a soldier who would be behind the threats that the candidate for the government of Boyacá Jhonatán Sánchez Garavito has suffered.

This is about Nelson William Cortés Gordillo, a professional soldier who was arrested in the municipality of Saboyá (Boyacá) after a judge issued an arrest warrant against him.

For these facts, the above mentioned person will be charged by the Office of the Attorney General for threats against human rights defenders and public servants. The defendant did not plead guilty to the charges.
