The extradition of the sister of Miguel and Gilberto Rodriguez Orejuela, leaders of the so-called Cali Cartel, was carried out at the CTI headquarters in the north of the capital Valle, where an arrest warrant was issued.
The conviction for money laundering was handed down on June 29, 2012 by the Criminal Court of the Bogota Special Circuit.
Then Mrs. Rodriguez Orajuela’s defense won a release granted by the Justice Department’s office.
In light of this, the country’s Attorney General’s Office filed appeals seeking the annulment of the release and the Asset Forfeiture Chamber of the Superior Court of Bogotá in 2019. Ambaro Rodríguez and others were sentenced to 25 years in prison as co-authors responsible for money laundering. And pay a fine of 25 thousand as the current minimum wage.
After other appeals filed by Amparo Rodríguez Orejuela’s lawyers before the Criminal Cassation Chamber of the Supreme Court, he commuted the sentence and Sentenced to 13 years imprisonment.
Ambaro Rodríguez Orejuela, who served as the leader of the America de Cali team, is supposed to be locked up in the women’s wing of Jamundi prison in the south of the valley.
