Former Colombia president Alvaro Uribe who last week announced his resignation from the country’s senate, had a change of heart on Wednesday, August 1 and wrote to the president of the legislative body asking him to cancel the resignation. In this way, Uribe will continue to enjoy the parliamentary protection granted by being a senator.Uribe presented his resignation to Congress President Ernesto Macías Tovar after the Supreme Court summoned him to testify in a case of alleged bribery and fraud.
