On August 11, a new meeting took place between former president Álvaro Uribe Vélez and Gustavo Bolívar, now a candidate for mayor of Bogotá. It all started when former Senator Bolívar made a post on Twitter about the dismissal of four agents from the Mobile Anti-Riot Squad of the National Police who allegedly abused a minor, who later committed suicide, in Popayán during the 2021 national strike.

In his trill, Bolívar called former President Uribe “miserable” for having edited a video in which the former senator called the four uniformed officers “pigs”, describing this action as malicious so that it would seem that he was talking about the entire institution.

“The 4 ESMAD agents to whom I called “Pigs” have been dismissed for capturing and abusing Alison, a minor in Popayán. The miserable Álvaro Uribe Vélez edited the video to make it seem like he was saying that to all the police officers in Colombia,” Bolívar wrote.
In a second publication, the candidate for mayor of Bogotá for the Historical Pact gave the names of the four uniformed officers who allegedly abused the minor, who were sanctioned by the Attorney General’s Office: “The girl was abused by these 4 Patrolmen: -Julián Andrés Martínez Pérez -Jhon Jader Montenegro -Edwin Orlando Cortés C. -Ricardo Andrés Salazar M. Sentenced to 12 and 13 years and of whom Alison said before committing suicide: “They pulled down my pants, they groped me to the very soul” ”.

Hours later, former President Álvaro Uribe, also on Twitter, replied to Bolívar saying that the mayoral candidate is “doing merits” with the National Police to get electoral returns:
“Don Gustavo now wants to make merits with the Public Force to see if they elect him in Bogotá”

The exchange of trills between the former president and the candidate was left there, but the one who decided to get into the discussion was the Bogotá councilor for the Democratic Center, Diana Diago, who responded to Bolívar’s trill by telling him that “the only miserable one” is him. for denigrating the public force and for using the young people on the front lines whom they financed, the councilor said, as “cannon fodder.” She also told the former president “it is respected.”
“President Álvaro Uribe Vélez is respected. Bolívar: the only miserable one is you who has denigrated the public force. That I use young people as cannon fodder when I finance the first line”.
Councilwoman Diago also told Bolívar: “It is miserable to belong to a government tarnished by the entry of drug money into the campaign,” and that it is equally miserable “to try to govern Bogotá without knowing where it stands.”

Regarding the video in question, the candidate Bolívar, in Semana, said on July 25, 2023 that he does not regret having called the police officers “pigs” and insisted that “the video edited by former President Uribe takes a little bit of from my video in which it says ‘police pigs’, and I was referring to four Popayán police officers who raped a girl and who later committed suicide”.

In that same interview, Bolívar argued that he called the Esmad uniforms, responsible for the sexual abuse of the minor in Popayán, that way, because “as the father of that girl, I felt obliged to make that protest, those are the words that they sprouted at that moment.”
The candidate for mayor of Bogotá, Diego Molano, in an interview with El Tiempo, said that the enemy, his opponent, Gustavo Bolívar, is “the enemy of Bogotá” and that everything must be done to prevent him from reaching the Liévano Palace. The statement was made when asked about the Cambio Radical candidate, the retired general Jorge Luis Vargas, who he said should support him to guarantee that Bolívar does not win the elections:
“No, definitely that he (Vargas) supports us. Here the main thing we have to guarantee is that the enemy of Bogotá, which is Gustavo Bolívar, does not reach the Mayor’s Office “
