According to Indepaz, the peace signatory was murdered by gunmen in the Cañon de la Llorona, rural area of Damitba.
“We deplore these violent actions against peace and ask the authorities for clarity and immediate justice.” “Our solidarity hug goes out to his family and other colleagues,” the UNP said.
Since 2016, 387 signatories have been murdered, 38 of them registered in Antioquia, and three are missing; and 31 this year.
“Don’t let the assassination of peace signatories become a landscape. You can’t find answers in the government! And from this, our government, we demand guarantees of life and reintegration,” demanded the representative of the Comunes Party in the Congress Chamber, Luis Alberto Albán.
