In other incidents, the Office of the Ombudsman informed the competent authorities that 10 detainees for sexual offenses held at Chambacu police station in Cartagena were allegedly raped by other persons deprived of liberty.

The facts they are asking for speedy investigation would have been registered on August 30. The complaints made by the regional ombudsman in BolĂ­var were presented to the commander of the National Police and the commander of the Metropolitan Police of Cartagena, calling on them to initiate the relevant measures for the possible lack of service in the police station of Chambacu, since the incidents occurred at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Only then did he become aware of the situation.

Detainees in this station, not being in prison, do not receive Inpack supervision or attention. The mayor’s office takes charge of these and does not even give them food. Food contracts have expired, and while those with families eat, others search for them.

“Also, the Ombudsman’s Office asked the Bolivar Department of the Attorney General’s Office to speed up the investigation and the Mayor of Cartagena to find mechanisms so that the rights of those deprived of their liberty are not violated. These penal institutions are overcrowded,” he said in a statement.
