Minister Molano maintained that said evidence is valid and would confirm that one of those who speaks in the video is Alberto Cruz Lobo, aka Enrique Marulandaone of the sons of alias Tirofijo, founder of the Farc guerrilla and who died of natural causes.
“The information that we have by intelligence has been that indicated after the presentation of the video, it has been validated that it is a valid report, of course the information that has intelligence is that in those disputes one of these ‘vendettas’ was presented in which it affects his (Iván Márquez’s) integrity,” he said.
Molano also stressed that “he (Márquez) is being protected by the Nicolás Maduro regime and that he is in a hospital in Caracasis the information we have. We will inform you of any other inquiry or additional information.”
The head of the Defense portfolio also expressed that those who appear together with Marulanda are second and third leaders of the ‘Second Marquetalia’ of the FARC dissidents.
