The sad story of Colombia's Supreme Court judge who only accidentally gets people in legal trouble

by Adriaan Alsema May 17, 2020

Colombia’s Supreme Court magistrate Cristina Lombana seems to have a special gift to accidentally get her allegedly criminal former army buddies in legal trouble.

Since President Ivan Duque swore in Lombana in October 2018, the judge not once has made the headlines for serving justice, and made plenty making her look like a tit.

In the former major’s defense, hardly anyone sworn in by Duque seems to have a clue what they’re doing.

Moreover, Lombana’s adapting to a grown ups’ court would be a challenge for any former member of Colombia’s notoriously ineffective military justice system.

Having spent years securing impunity for members of the military, the magistrate is now getting them in trouble while doing everything she can to frustrate the case against former President Alvaro Uribe.
