Ex paramilitary chief ‘Jorge 40’ is accused of killing two trade union members

Former paramilitary chief Rodrigo Tovar Pupo, also known as ‘Jorge 40’, was accused of the murder of two members of the multinational mining company Drummond. It is understood that both victims, Valmore Locarno Rodríguez and Víctor Hugo Orcasita, are respectively president and vicepresident of the trade union of the company ‘Sintramienergética’.

‘Jorge 40’ didn’t act on his own. Colombian justice has also accused paramilitary Óscar José Ospino, alias 'Tolemaida', of participating in the crime.

According to the investigation, on March 12 2001, Locarno and Orcasita were travelling on a bus on their way to Cartagena. The bus was stopped in Bosconia, Cesar, and both trade union leaders were dragged out of it by the paramilitaries. Locarno was killed inmediately after but Orcasita was taken away from the scene and then murdered.
