U.S. army criminal investigators to probe allegations of sexual abuse of Colombian minors.

A follow-up on the story of the fifty-four under-age Colombian girls who were reportedly sexually assaulted by American troops and contractors stationed in Colombia, serving under Plan Colombia, between 2003 and 2007.

Now, U.S. army criminal investigators plan to probe allegations with officials in Colombia.

Chris Grey, spokesman for the Army’s Criminal Investigation Command, said “Special agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command are currently coordinating with Colombian authorities and will initiate an investigation into any credible allegations of sexual assault or criminal acts committed by U.S. soldiers while in that country.”

The abuses allegedly happened in military bases in Colombia, in Melgar and Tolemaida.

Colombian prosecutors could not make arrests because of immunity agreements made between the U.S. and Colombia.
