Of course there was Colombian military intelligence spying on the government’s negotiating team. I am not surprised. Are you surprised? They are also likely spying on the FARC’s negotiating team.
The spies were civilians under contract with the Military’s Central Technical Intelligence, Citec, which is part of the Military’s Intelligence Directory, Dinte.
The project to spy on the government’s negotiating team was called “Andrómeda.”
“One is ordered to hack the email of ‘X.’ Someone else has to find the conversations of ‘X’ and ‘Y’ in the Blackberry, and someone else has to load the conversations from WhatsApp. Each one only has one piece of the movie. But all the information is given to the bosses who receive the information in its entirety,” one source told Semana.com.
Semana.com consulted more than 25 sources including American intelligence agencies, high sources within the Colombian military and the Colombian government, and Colombian intelligence and counter-intelligence.
