"Former President Alvaro Uribe has denied before a Colombian congressional committee that he ordered the country's domestic intelligence agency to spy on judges, journalists and political foes. Uribe said during a 3 1/2-hour appearance that any accusations against him are based on false testimony and ill will. More than 20 agents of the DAS intelligence agency have been imprisoned for alleged roles in the spying." (08/18/11)
