    Killing the attorney with evidence Colombia’s military assassinated 6,000 civili

    Killing the attorney with evidence Colombia’s military assassinated 6,000 civilians
    written by Adriaan Alsema March 14, 2017

     

     

    The attorney who on behalf of victims has gathered evidence of the assassination of 6,000 civilians by Colombia’s military is fearing for his life after numerous death threats.

    Colombia Reports has obtained prosecution statistics claiming the military killed at least 4,000 civilians, mainly under former President Alvaro Uribe (2002-2010) and particularly when President Juan Manuel Santos was defense minister between 2006 and 2008).

    To give you a sense of proportion, this is already similar as the number of homicides attributed to the country’s biggest criminal ever, drug lord Pablo Escobar.

    . . .

    Yepes’ nightmare began in 2014 when his organization, the Colombia-Europe-United States Human RIghts Coordinator (CCEEU), published the report “False Positives in Colombia and the role of the United States’ military assistance” on the widespread and systematic killing of civilians by the military.

    1. I just happen to be reading a novel about this right now

    “Code Of Honor” by Harold Coyle.

    The leading character is a woman army captain.

    Tom Clancy highly recommended it.
