The arrest warrant against William Omar Landron, name of the artist, was issued with the purpose of having him testify before the Financial Economic Division of the Special Force to Fight Crime of Santa Cruz regarding the crime of aggravated fraud, reported the Colombian newspaper Time.
Along with Don Omar, his brother Héctor Luis Landron Rivera, as well as Félix Gerardo Ortiz and Gabriel Enrique Pizarro, better known as reggaeton singers Zion and Lennox, have been cited.
The arrest warrant was issued after the complaint filed by the Vice Ministry of User and Consumer Defense, after the suspension of the concert that the artist was going to do on Thursday, January 19 in La Paz. It should be noted that this concert was held the following day (yesterday, Friday) and the one that was scheduled for yesterday in Santa Cruz would be held today, Saturday.

The police chief indicated that “the commitment was that (the concert) was going to take place today (Thursday)”, since there was already a first cancellation of the presentation that was to be held in the cities of La Paz and Santa Cruz. at the beginning of last December.
Rojas indicated that “many people got their tickets” even came from within the country and waited for the event to take place outside the main La Paz stadium.
