Former Colombian President will not cooperate with Congress

Former President Andres Pastrana on Monday said he will not appear before Congress “now or later” to explain his government’s handling of a case before the world court that recently granted waters claimed by Colombia to Nicaragua.

The ex-president was subpoenaed to come before Congress and explain what actions his administration took regarding the martime dispute between the two countries.

Pastrana rebuffed the request, claiming the Constitution prohibits him from divulging “dipolmatic matters or confidential negotiations.”

An opposition Congressman last week filed a complaint against the former president claiming he failed to take appropriate measures in the case of the San Andres islands. The International Court of Justice recently granted almost 30,000 square miles of disputed maritime territory to Nicaragua.

The House’s Commission of Accusations will investigate the alleged failures of the former head of state and present its findings to Congress once it has completed the investigation.
