Venezuela’s former chief prosecutor is being “protected” in Colombia and will receive asylum if she asks for it, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos said Monday.

Santos’ Twitter message may put to rest speculation that Luisa Ortega, who fled Venezuela with her husband on Friday, had already sought asylum in the United States.

Ortega, a one-time government ally turned critic, says she has proof that Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro is personally implicated in the Odebrecht construction scandal. The Brazilian company has told authorities that it paid at least $100 million in bribes for Venezuelan contracts.
