Several experts agree to call Uribe’s words as hypocrites for his military tactics led to mass human rights violations during his presidential term (2002-2010).
Regarding those who supported him while imprisoned, Uribe thanked the support of ethically-shady figures such as Spain's former President Jose Maria Aznar and the U.S. President Donald Trump.
Uribe also assured that he will maintain the fight for his "honorability" and said that, although his public life has generated much controversy, he cannot stop "thinking about Colombia."
