Alias el Feo was in charge of the logistics and the armed and financial control of said organization. His area of influence was the municipality of Briceo and the north of the Aburr Valley.
Soldiers of the Fourth Brigade, unit of the Seventh Division of the National Army, during an inter-agency operation executed with the Antioquia Police and the Specialized Prosecutors Office of Medelln 75, succeeded in capturing Henry Arturo Gil-Ramrez, a.k.a. El Feo, who acted as the second military leader of this terrorist organization and who was charged with conspiracy to commit a crime, trafficking, possession of weapons and drug trafficking.

This result was achieved thanks to human intelligence work, technical intelligence and especially information provided by the civilian population for over a year, which allowed us to continue hitting and weakening the criminal actions of this structure in the north of the department.

It was established that Gil-Ramrez was one of the confidence men of alias Cabuyo, since he was also in charge of the coordination of the structure in the municipality of Bello, as well as of the logistics and armed and financial control over the rural area of the municipality of Briceo. He worked as a member of the Terrorism Support Networks for eight years when the 36th Front was active. He did not follow the demobilization process and continues to commit crimes inside these networks, for a criminal history of over ten years.

These military operations seek to maintain offensive actions against the instability factors that may threaten the inhabitants of the different subregions. It is clear that when the capabilities of our institutions are properly combined and when the inhabitants who do not want more criminal influence in their fields decisively support our actions, the results and impact are tangible.

The troops of the National Army will continue working jointly with the National Police and the Office of the Attorney General, so that this type of results continues contributing to the consolidation of security in the department.
