Demobilized FARC guerrillas assassinated in southwest Colombia

Demobilized FARC guerrillas assassinated in southwest Colombia
written by Adriaan Alsema April 27, 2017

Two demobilized FARC member have been assassinated in southwest Colombia in the past 10 days, sparking fears of a repetition of the mass killing of leftists that cost thousands of lives after a 1985 peace deal.

Both homicide victims were pardoned members of the FARCís militias who, unlike the guerrillas, are taking part in Colombiaís peace process from home instead of from camps that are supervised by the United Nations.

Alvaro Ortiz, a demobilized member of the FARC in the southwestern Cauca province, was shot dead on Wednesday, just hours after the Prosecutor General took to the press to personally announce the homicide of another FARC member, who was killed on April 16, but whose death was not made public after the arrest of his suspected killer.

The FARC has claimed that three family members of a demobilized guerrilla from Antioquia were also assassinated, but this was not confirmed by authorities.
