A Colombian priest who led a brutal paramilitary group has been captured after going on the run to avoid prison.
Oscar Albeiro Ortiz was convicted of criminal conspiracy in absentia last August, receiving a sentence of 19 years.
He was rearrested on 30 January in the mountainous state of Risaralda.
The sentencing document said that for nearly a decade from 2003, Fr Albeiro ran an organisation engaged in murder, extortion and forced displacement.
A witness quoted in the sentence described Ortiz “as a person of two faces: the good angel and the bad angel”.
