The Supreme Court of Justice approved the arguments presented by the Office of the Attorney General and returned a guilty verdict against the current Governor of the department of Cesar, Luis Alberto Monsalvo Gnecco, for electoral corruption during elections of October 2011.
The investigation showed that, Monsalvo Gnnecco being a candidate for the governing the department for the period 2012-2015, signed agreements with representatives of the Tierra Prometida, Guasimales and Emmanuel invasions in Valledupar to keep their illegal status in exchange for votes.
A prosecutor delegated to the Supreme Court of Justice delivered videos, statements, and the agreements. With this material, the Office of the Attorney General demonstrated that Monsalvo Gnnecco took advantage of the vulnerable communities’ needs and agreed to allow a condition contrary to the law to secure votes.
This action reveals that beyond being a political or campaign activity, it was an electoral corruption.
The Office of the Attorney General makes this information public for reasons of general interest.
