The Colombian public prosecutor’s office announced this Friday that it has opened a formal investigation into allegations that President Gustavo Pedro’s son, Nicolas, received illegal payments.

The Justice Department heard testimony from Day Vasquez, a deputy and former partner of Pedro’s son, that the campaign received money from former drug lords last year.

President Pedro asked the prosecutor’s office on Thursday to investigate the charges against his son and his brother Juan Fernando, according to Vázquez, who agreed to pardon the perpetrators.

Both Nicolas and Juan Fernando Pedro deny the charges. He first announced legal action against his ex-partner.
