Preventive detention to ex mayor for Trujillo massacre
More than 245 people were killed during 1986 and 1994 in the town of Trujillo (in the department of Valle in the south east of Colombia). These terrible massacres were ordered by noted drug traffickers Henry Loaiza Ceballos, better known as ‘el Alacrán’; and Diego León Montoya, ‘Don Diego’, who are both already in prison. More than 20 people are being charged with the crimes of first degree murder and forced disappearances. Other 60 people are being investigated for this crime as well.
