Mexico City. The sister of Cecilia Cubas, buried alive by the FARC under the advice of Rodrigo Granda, questioned the decision of the President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, to have set him free, despite the extradition request from Paraguay to be submitted to Justice. “It was clearly demonstrated that there was not the political will (of the Mexican government) to comply with the international arrest warrant and Interpol red alert. For us, at all times it was a collaborative attitude towards Granda, when the attitude should have been to collaborate with the Paraguayan government for the trial that is pending for the murder of my sister, ”Silvia Cubas said on Asunción radio 1000 AM .
The prosecutor of the Anti-kidnapping unit, Lorenzo Lezcano, assured that Paraguay sent the extradition warrant of former FARC chief Rodrigo Granda to Mexico on time.
Lezcano pointed out in the ABC Cardinal 730 AM radio program Momento Justo that the document required by Mexico arrived in that country even before the plane in which Rodrigo Granda returned to Colombia took off.
The prosecutor did not hesitate to say that the Mexican authorities simply did not want to cooperate with the Paraguayan justice, publishes the newspaper ABC of Paraguay.
Commissioner Nicolás González, head of Interpol Paraguay, confirmed that “the part of Migrations spread the red code; what Migrations (from Mexico) did was delay him, not let him in and return him where he came from, ”he explained. The Government of Mexico could have stopped him, they didn’t want to.
The Mexican ambassador to Paraguay Juan Manuel Nungaray said that Landa “was never detained by the Mexican authorities because he never entered Mexican territory.” However, he confirmed that the documentation for the arrest and extradition request was sent by the Paraguayan Foreign Ministry, but “there was no time”; Granda was already on the plane.
Cecilia Cubas was kidnapped when she left her job on September 21, 2004. Rodrigo Granda advised those who carried out the kidnapping, members of the so-called Paraguayan People’s Army.
As evidence of the involvement of the Farc, in particular Rodrigo Granda, are a series of emails between the Colombian and the head of the Paraguayan People’s Army, Osmar Martínez.
Granda advised them, gave instructions and even collected 10% of the money they paid for the release of Cecilia Cubas, daughter of the former president of Paraguay Raúl Cubas Grau, which never happened. They buried her alive.
The kidnappers summoned relatives of Cecilia Cubas in the Shopping Multiplaza shopping center, in the Paraguayan capital. They had to go to the bathroom, and behind a toilet look for a note with the email through which they would communicate from now on: [email protected], and the password was amanezien2.
“No more name the girl, say the fruit, or name the cana (police)”, were the instructions. The messages are terrifying: “Don’t worry about your health, the fruit (Cecilia) is fine, worry about her life, I’ll give you a week to respond in full,” revealed the Colombian newspaper Semana.
They made a mistake and that’s when the skein began to unravel. In the contact email, inside the sent folder they found an email that they forgot to delete, addressed to the account [email protected]. At that time, intelligence actions did not allow access to accounts, so a request to Microsoft was necessary to find out who was behind it.
He used the name Gerardo Acosta, but he was Osmar Martínez, secretary general of the Free Homeland Party, whose armed wing was the EPP. Martínez was sentenced to 35 years in prison for this kidnapping and murder, and died in prison from a cardiorespiratory arrest in 2015. There are conversations with a person named Rosendo Martínez, who was actually Rodrigo Granda.
