Mapirip N. Sin Perd N y Sin Olvido.: Memorias de Un Soldado

Overview

"Like Judge Cortes, Major Orozco was not part of the conspiracy. He was unaware that he was to be the fall guy who would take the blame when the news of the massacre broke. Unwittingly, Major Orozco played his role perfectly. He promised Judge Cortes that he would inform the general in charge of the region and request reinforcements. Immediately, he sent a report to General Jaime Uscátegui...He recommended sending three battalions in three helicopters... Nothing was done."

Overview

"Like Judge Cortes, Major Orozco was not part of the conspiracy. He was unaware that he was to be the fall guy who would take the blame when the news of the massacre broke. Unwittingly, Major Orozco played his role perfectly. He promised Judge Cortes that he would inform the general in charge of the region and request reinforcements. Immediately, he sent a report to General Jaime Uscátegui...He recommended sending three battalions in three helicopters... Nothing was done."
"Orozco's crime was clear: He told the truth. "In a system like the one that exists in Colombia, the truth ruins everyone's prospects and accounts for the high level of indifference and silence, since no one will risk saying anything for fear of losing what they have."
Robin Kirk. More Terrible than Death. New York, 2003.

"En todo esto se deduce claramente que el coronel (r) Hernán Orozco pretendió en todo momento evitar la masacre y otras posibles, pero que No contaba con el poder necesario para evitarla. Sin embargo lo condenan como ya dije, como "chivo expiatorio" por haber sido el oficial del Ejército Colombiano con menor rango y poder militar, y a partir de ahí tratar de lograr que exoneren al General Uscátegui que es el extremo opuesto de Orozco, es decir con ostensible mayor peso social, financiero y sobre todo político."
Apreciado Hernan Orozco Castro:

"Mi opinión personal es que usted no es un asesino, ya que obligados a aterrizar en San Jose del Guaviare, Colombia, luego de la primera masacre de Mapiripan en una avioneta piloteada por Sonia Pérez; se nos respetó a mi familia y a mi (Esposa e hijos) el derecho a la vida, en la conversación personal que sostuvimos en algún Restaurante de esa ciudad, tanto usted, su esposa, su amigo el médico y esposa, me parecieron gente decente. Sigo pensando que a usted lo utilizaron como chivo expiatorio. Fuerza y entereza, usted es honesto y también tuvo el valor de decir la verdad. No creo que usted sea cómplice de los narco paramilitares..."

Leonardo Ivan Cortes Novoa. Ex juez de Mapiripán en el exilio forzoso. Sábado, Diciembre 26, 2009 12:51 PM

"La ley que rige en la guerra y en los conflictos internos en Colombia, de obligado conocimiento para un general de la república dada su formación, rango, especialidad y entrega a la vida militar y dentro del contexto de la actual realidad nacional, el General Uscátegui tenía la obligación a partir de la más simple sensatez, saber que si no actuaba ante la información recibida el mismísimo día 15 de julio... contribuía por omisión crasa... a la masacre de Mapiripan."

Magistrada Amelia Mantilla Villegas. Agosto 18 de 1999.

"Repárese que la sola existencia del oficio cuyo contenido hace referencia a esa especial situación de Mapiripan, con ocasión del arribo del grupo de justicia privada, es una clara muestra del sentido de humanidad inherente al oficial Orozco Castro. Conclusión de todo lo anterior es que el Mayor Orozco, no incumplió con sus deberes y obligaciones como comandante del batallón París, pues de inmediato elaboro y envió comunicación a la séptima brigada, dando cuenta de lo que acontecía en Mapiripan.
Fiscal Regional de Derechos Humanos. Bogotá, 30 de marzo de 1999.
