Fox WXXV25 News reported on 21st February that the Colombian cop, Colonel Hugo Aguilar, who commanded the operation that killed drug kingpin Pablo Escobar in 1993 has been arrested for laundering money on behalf of a demobilised right-wing Central Bolivar militia.  Authorities accuse Aguilar of amassing a fortune worth over $5.2 million from his ties.  It says that the investigation against Aguilar started last year when he was photographed driving a Porsche even while arguing he was too indebted to pay reparations to victims of paramilitary violence.
