A riot took place in March this year in La Modelo where 24 inmates were killed and 90 people were injured.
Colombia's Attorney General Office (AGO) opened a disciplinary investigation against officials of "La Modelo" medium-security prison located in Bogota for the events that occurred during a riot on March 21.
About 107 guards were present in the prison at the moment of the unrest. Besides the La Modelo riot, other protests took place in nearly ten Colombian prisons.
In April, the AGO denounced that Henry Castellanos alias "Romaña" was one of the instigators of the unrest.
"The Public Prosecutor's Office seeks to determine whether the alleged actions constitute disciplinary offenses and to clarify the determining reasons, the circumstances of time, manner and place in which they were committed, and the possible damage caused to the public administration," AGO said.
