Colombia assisting in extermination of community leaders: Inspector General

written by Adriaan Alsema February 1, 2018

Colombia’s ombudsman urged the government on Monday to prioritize the protection of community leaders, claiming they face “extermination.”

Inspector General Fernando Carrillo said the government was ordered to protect social leaders and human rights defenders by the Constitutional Court.

“We keep assisting in the extermination of the social leaders in this country without, apparently, anyone caring,” said the inspector general in a statement.

Carrillo called the ongoing wave of killings “barbaric.”
