The Attorney General’s Office sanctioned with absolute separation and general disqualification for a period of 14 years, Lieutenant Colonel Andrés Mauricio Quintero Londoño, commander of the Sixth Brigade of the National Army (2020), who sexually harassed a second lieutenant.

In a first instance ruling, the supervisory body found that Quintero Londoño’s approaches to his victim increased, going from simple chats in his office to touching her body, then to suggestive conversations and, finally, to requests for virtual and physical sexual acts.

The Attorney General’s Office established that on one occasion, the high-ranking officer summoned the complainant to his cabin, where he was half-naked and exposing his genitals to her, to demand that she perform oral sex on him.

In addition, she proved that he sent her sexual messages through WhatsApp in which he used phrases such as “it all depends on the motivation”, “I better go take a shower so I don’t think about more stupid things”, “delete that”, “don’t leave anything”, “you know that people look at my cell phone a lot”.

The entity classified the offense as very serious and committed with intent, considering that the lieutenant colonel knew the illegality of his actions, since “he asked his subordinate to delete the conversations they had on WhatsApp, or at least the sections in which he expressed his sexual intentions.”

According to the Public Prosecutor’s Office, the behavior committed by the then brigade commander transcended and overshadowed the institutional image of the National Army and the integrity of its members.

The parties to the proceedings filed an appeal against the decision before the Ordinary Disciplinary Trial Chamber.
