With this fake news, the Attorney General reaffirms his already recognized record of obstructing the implementation of the Final Agreement, as stated in his opposition to the creation and implementation of the Special Investigation Unit of the crimes of paramilitarism, and in his systematic work of altering the meaning and contents of the Statutory Law of the Special Jurisdiction for Peace during its proceedings in the Congress of the Republic.
On account of their actions, the victims of the conflict were slapped, by excluding the military high command and the so-called third civilians and the civil servants of the State from the JEP.
Last year's statements about fabulous figures of undeclared assets, a few days ago, in a clear media show aimed at creating a climate of expectation, the announcement was made that the country would shudder with a new list of goods not included by the FARC-EP in its inventory.
Irresponsibly, the entity in charge has pointed out the owners of a recognized chain of supermarkets and other properties, as alleged frontmen of the FARC-EP, also causing looting and riots in several municipalities.
The Attorney General does not do any good in going out to condemn without a trial formula and violating the most basic procedural guarantees the presumed parties, with the clear intention of muddying the image of the People’s Alternative Revolutionary Force, a legal political party born of the agreements of Havana.
All the imaginations and arbitrariness about the fabulous figures allegedly not declared by the FARC-EP will have to be demonstrated.
The trial and conviction through the media cannot have credibility, on behalf of a justice system that evidences the existence of a witness cartel, as has been demonstrated once again in a recent ruling of the Supreme Court of Justice that commits a senator of the Republic.
The Attorney General should be reminded that there is constitutional regulation on the assets that were part of the "war economy" of the FARC-EP. As per the transitory article 5º of the Legislative Act No. 1 of 2017, corresponds to the ordinary jurisdiction the investigation and prosecution of the crimes referred to in the second book, fifth chapter, tenth title of the Penal Code, when they are committed on assets or assets that have not been included in the final agreed and prepared inventory, and provided that execution acts have been carried out after the final delivery of that inventory (underlining ours).
We reiterate, what is imputed will have to be demonstrated in the judicial stages. Let it be known to the JEP. The rest is a media show.
Colombia and the international community are witnesses of our committed fulfillment of the agreement.
It has been the Colombian State who has repeatedly failed to comply with its commitments, both through the alteration of the content of the agreements and their lack of will to implement them.
Time will run and you will see who is lying to the country.
The truth makes us strong.
National Political Council.
People’s Alternative Revolutionary Force - FARC.
