Sinai hospital.  He is 61 years old and has a successful cardiology practice.  He is married with two small children, 7 and 9 years old.  Throughout the trial, the courtroom was packed with his patients who all support him and say he is the best doctor around.  He, his wife, and his patients wept after the trial.

PRESS RELEASE REGARDING COURT PROCEEDINGS OF FORMER COLOMBIAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE ANDRES ARIAS

Home Page Firm Profile Attorney Profiles David Oscar Markus Mona E. Markus A. Margot Moss Lauren I. Doyle Todd Yoder News and Articles Case Summaries Blog Contact Us Menu:   Former Colombian presidential candidate and former Minister of Agriculture, Andres Felipe Arias, was released on bail today after a hearing on his motion to dismiss the extradition complaint in which he contested the Court’s jurisdiction to extradite him.  His argument was that the United States Court did not have jurisdiction to extradite him because there was no active treaty in force between the United States and Colombia.  In support of that position, Dr. Arias submitted a wealth of evidence, including an affidavit of former President Alvaro Uribe, who was present in Court today to support Dr. Arias.   After hearing extensive argument, Magistrate Judge John O’Sullivan indicated that he was leaning in favor of ruling for Dr. Arias. Judge O’Sullivan wanted more time to consider Dr. Arias’ position, but allowed him to be free on bond as he considered whether to dismiss the extradition request.  Dr. Arias will be released tonight and will be with his wife and two children in South Florida.  There is no time-table for Judge O’Sullivan’s final decision on whether there is jurisdiction to extradite Dr. Arias.   Dr. Arias was the Colombian Minister of Agriculture until February 2009, when he decided to run for the Conservative Party nomination for president in 2010. Dr. Arias was viewed as President Uribe’s protégé and likely successor, and therefore, an enemy of the FARC. If elected as president, Dr. Arias would have continued Uribe’s program of crippling the...

PRESS RELEASE REGARDING BAIL APPLICATION OF FORMER COLOMBIAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE ANDRES ARIAS

Home Page Firm Profile Attorney Profiles David Oscar Markus Mona E. Markus A. Margot Moss Lauren I. Doyle Todd Yoder News and Articles Case Summaries Blog Contact Us Menu: PRESS RELEASE REGARDING BAIL APPLICATION OF FORMER COLOMBIAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE ANDRES ARIAS Former Colombian presidential candidate and former Minister of Agriculture, Andres Felipe Arias, filed today the attached motion to be released on bond pending the examination of Colombia’s request for his extradition. Dr. Arias has the support of former Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, former U.S. Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart, and many other high-ranking officials. Dr. Arias was the Colombian Minister of Agriculture until February 2009, when he decided to run for the Conservative Party nomination for president in 2010. Dr. Arias was viewed as President Uribe’s protégé and likely successor, and therefore, an enemy of the FARC. If elected as president, Dr. Arias would have continued Uribe’s program of crippling the FARC, rather than negotiating with them. As such, Andres Felipe Arias, as the potential President of Colombia, was an imminent threat to the terrorist group. Dr. Arias was taken out of the presidential election when baseless corruption charges emerged — false allegations that were contrived and fueled by his political opponents. His case was prosecuted by two anti-Uribe attorneys general, one of whom is married to a man with ties to guerilla groups targeted by the Uribe administration. It is undisputed that Mr. Arias did not obtain any financial benefit, he did not receive one penny, there were no kickbacks and no quid pro quo.  Contrary to due process requirements here in the United States, there was no jury...
