Minister Carrillo, a respected student leader and voice on democracy, governance, and judicial reform for the last two decades, served as Inter-American Development Bank’s Representative in Brazil, coordinator of President Juan Manuel Santos’ transition team, and General Director of National Agency for Judicial Defense prior to assuming the Ministry of Interior.
