The women who have been in the FARC, recently issued a public statement, in which they express their open rejection of the smear campaign that some people and media are carrying on against the leaders of the new political party.
Rodrigo Londoño has gone to Colombia from Cuba to commemorate the first anniversary of the signature of the Final Peace Agreement at the Colon Theater and to meet President Santos with whom he discussed about the difficulties the Agreement between the FARC and the Government is currently facing.
In order to ensure compliance with the commitments provided for in the Final Agreement, regarding the adequacy of the Comprehensive Care and Reparation Policy for Victims, the FARC-EP component of the Follow-up, Impulse and Verification Commission to the Implementation of the Final Agreement - CSIVI, wants to indicate the following to the public opinion:
That the congress think to convert what is a legal duty, such as the defense of human rights, into a cause of inability is indeed shameful, but this will not go unnoticed within the international community”, says the legal adviser of the process of peace, Enrique Santiago, adding that he feels "used not to say deceived".

Dear Mr. Secretary General:
Timochenko has been nominated FARC candidate for the Presidential elections that will take place in Colombia next spring.
Here his words to voters.
A complaint was filed by the Eduardo Umaña Mendoza Legal Brigade before Mr. Brigadier General Jorge Luis Ramírez Aragón, general director of the National Penitentiary and Prison Institute - INPEC - against the Director of the La Picota Prison and the INPEC Guard for the events that occurred On Friday, November 10, 2017, when dozens of political prisoners were brutally crushed after a raid on the cells at dawn hours.
The decision to lay down arms and thus close the cycle of military confrontation with the Colombian State was taken without contemplating setbacks.
