The Attorney General’s Office reported on June 22 that it will immediately take over the investigation into alleged “chats” against magistrates of the Constitutional Court, a fact that the same officers denounced and asked prosecutor Adriana Camargo to investigate.

Read: Constitutional Court asked the Prosecutor’s Office to investigate possible ‘tricks’ against magistrates.

“Faced with the seriousness of the facts brought to your attention, upon receiving this week in the Constitutional Court the complaint about alleged illegal interceptions and surveillance of one of the offices of its magistrates, the nation’s attorney general, Luz Adriana Camargo Garzón, ordered to begin the corresponding investigation immediately in the Unit of Prosecutors delegated to the Supreme Court of Justice,” reads the statement shared by the Prosecutor’s Office.

Furthermore, the investigating body categorically rejected any intelligence work against some high court officials and added that it is false that “the Prosecutor’s office has disclosed the document signed by one of the judges of the Constitutional Court.”

Rumors about possible interceptions of magistrates gained strength on June 14, when a magistrate of the Plenary Chamber gave the first alerts after ensuring that his phone was failing. “I allow myself to inform you that this phone and this chat have been illegally tapped by the State intelligence agencies,” said the message from the man, revealed by Caracol Radio.

Subsequently, the prosecutor met with the high court on two occasions. In one of these appointments, two magistrates expressed her concern, as they had information from reliable sources about the alleged tricks against some members of the high court.

By the way, in the last days of the Congressional legislature, Carlos Ramón González, head of the National Intelligence Directorate (DINI), was summoned to debate political control in order to clarify the matter.

González maintained in the Senate plenary session that during the government of President Gustavo Petro no type of order has been given to intercept magistrates or other figures.
