We left the third hearing of victims of the conflict yesterday with sorrowful hearts, hearing the painful stories of those who suffered the brutality of the massacres, the targeted assassinations, torture, dismemberment, rape and premeditated attacks, and all other atrocities of State terrorism, because that is what paramilitarism is.

With concern we received the news about the illegal operations that occurred in Colombia, aimed at infiltrating Humberto De la Calle's personal communications. We understand the fact that the head of the Government Delegation chose the scenario of the Havana peace talks to make this illegal event known, as his desire for the country to know that there are still enemies of peace, who insist on undermining the talks, regardless of methods or people. We reject what happened and we expressed our solidarity to Dr. De la Calle.
