Cheat on the electronic system.
1. Normally the Judge is assigned by a service center, which is done by an electronic system of rotation. This means that the system choose the court that handled the case.
2. Court officials did this procedure several times, until the system threw the office of convenience. According to the records found by the authorities, there were cases where the electronic rotation system was made up to 10 times to fix the process.
After they managed to locate the file of the desired person in court, there were two options.
As indicated by the prosecutor, the judge guarantees 26 was preferred to fix processes. Mahecha said that on December 19, 2012 was paid to send a folder to that office. That hearing ended freeing Jaime Castelblanco, a man who was under arrest as he was prosecuted for the crime of manufacture, trafficking and illegal possession of weapons. The judge gave Rodriguez freedom.
The August 29, 2012, Carmen Garzon, one of the arrested, called to offer $ 100,000 pesos in return if she managed a drug trade process in which cops were involved and were asking to be granted freedom. In interceptions made in one of the conversations of Carmen, she talked about how they were going to pay to the 'Chino' for his cooperation.

This story began a year ago, after an extraditable denounced that he had paid $42 million to these officials. Immediately the authorities began an investigation, and an ex-partner
of these 11 people became the star witness of the investigating body and began to tell the details of how they committed these irregularities. He is outside the country and signed a principle of opportunity in the prosecution to become part of the arsenal of evidence against those involved.
Raids were conducted in the court offices and judges' houses. In one of these, they found $ 11 million that could not be justified by one of the corrupt judges.

Corredor told this woman that she had already gone to the Inpec with his boss (the judge Rodriguez) to contact a person who they do not will charge more than $ 13 million to make the change from prison La Picota prison to a detention center in Facatativá.
