Colombia tribunal restores ousted Bogota mayor

Colombia tribunal restores ousted Bogota mayor | Colombia | Scoop.it
A Colombian tribunal on Tuesday ordered that Gustavo Petro be restored as mayor of Bogota, just weeks after he was officially ousted from the post over mismanagement. The 54-year-old former guerrilla left office on March 19 when President Juan Manuel Santos ratified a decision by the Council of State, the senior judicial authority that dismissed him over the poor handling of waste collection. "Bogota's superior tribunal protects political rights, that are the human rights of Bogota's citizens and mine," Petro said on his Twitter account. Petro's dismissal was declared in December by right-wing Inspector General Alejandro Ordonez over the mayor's attempt to reclaim management of waste collection from private operators.
