Wiretap Scandal Breaks in Colombia
Bogota, May 15 (Prensa Latina) Colombians were scandalized on Tuesday upon learning that the National Police Intelligence Division had tapped the phones of government and opposition politicians, businesspeople and journalists.
Defense Minister Juan Manuel Santos increased concern when he told the media that the government did not know who had ordered the wiretaps two years ago, although he added he had evidence of the espionage.
Santos insisted the actions were not aimed at the opposition, because government officials, public figures and journalists were also spied upon.
