Colonel Elkin Argote, whose task in the army was to manage the recruiting area, remained unmanned: the army decided to remove it not only from the position but also from the institution.

Army spokeswoman and Defense Minister Guillermo Botero confirmed that Argote was asked to return any item that was part of the military inventory after he learned that gargoyle he fled to the military garrisons, while the prosecution and the police sought him for accusations of drug smuggling. As is known, gargoyle and Colonel Argote are brothers.

Authorities point to Miguel Antonia Bastidas as head of the criminal organization La Constru, focusing on drug trafficking in Putumay. La Constru, allegedly, had a connection with the 48th front of Farc after it emerged after the demobilization of paramilitary units of the Southern Front Putumayo.

Some Mexican cartels, such as the one in Sinaloa, are also doing business with La Constru, and according to investigators of the police, this organization carried out drug trafficking even with posters from Eastern Europe. By 2015, brother gargoyle, Hector Bastidas, known in the underworld beautiful.

Since then, the group has remained in the hands of his brother, called gargoyle, who did very well the task of avoiding government until last Thursday. A total of 15 members of La Construct were arrested, including the prosecutor's office including Henry Loaiza, alias Scorpion, the former head of the Norte del Valle card who has been in jail since 1995 and last year gained freedom again.

Alakran was behind bars for the formation of illegal groups and the massacre in Trujillo, which left over 300 victims in the Valle del Cauca municipality between the 1980s and 1990s. After leaving the prison, the investigators say, joining the criminal world again. Now he and he gargoyle will be investigated for murder, forced displacement and drug trafficking.

Will Colonel Argote be researched or not, something that the Prosecution has to define. He already has an internal disciplinary investigation against him, the Defense Ministry confirmed and will now have to defend it outward, as the army does not go further.
