A Russian native, who was elected as mayor of a town in Colombia, had to prove that he is real and not a hologram.
Mayor Mikhail Krasnov of Tunja also had to show he did not have microchips implanted in him after a legal action was filed against him, according to local media.
According to Storyful, that legal action is known as "tutela," which is a legal protection of fundamental rights, established in Article 86 of the Colombian Constitution.
Footage showed Krasnov reading the tutela that was filed. A National Registry official who witnessed said that the authentication was successful, after Krasnov’s fingerprints were verified.
Kransov was born in Saratov, Russia, but came to Colombia 15 years ago on a study exchange. He became mayor in October.
