Havana, Cuba, April 8, 2015.

Mr. Álvaro Mejía.

Through digital media we have known the statements of the National CTI director, Julián Quintana, related to the fate of your son Andrés Mejía, who ensures the following: "We denounce that many sources, demobilized fighters and people who have some kind of relationship with the guerrillas, said they have seen Andrés in the ranks of the guerrillas. That is, he is under custody. We reiterate the call we made to the FARC to please release him or give us some sign of life."

The same report states: "Andrés Felipe's father, Alvaro Mejía, said he was willing to travel to Havana to talk with delegates of the peace talks and "beg for information about his child." "Specifically", states the article, "he wants to talk to Carlos Antonio Lozada, leader of the FARC who commands that area".

We are very much wanting to help restore calm in your family; but unfortunately the above information is not true. We are sure, without any room for doubt, that there isn't the slightest possibility that Andr?s Felipe is held by the FARC-EP.

Undoubtedly, the Prosecution investigators and other State agencies know about the unreliability of the information obtained thanks to rewards or testimonies of demobilized fighters eager for personal benefits, even at the expense of the suffering of others.

As a parent, I am no stranger to the pain and the distress you and Mrs. Blanca Ruby are suffering; so I ask you to accept my solidarity, extending it to Andr?s Felipe's brothers, other relatives and friends.

We express our readiness to receive you in Havana, if you think a personal meeting could be helpful.

With regards,

Carlos Antonio Lozada.
Member of the Secretariat of the FARC-EP.
