Members of the EU Parliament send out letter to Colombian President on the situation of Human Rights and peace in Colombia

28 members of the EU Parliament have sent a letter to the Colombian President
In their letter they express concern about recent news related to the existence of intelligence files, which reportedly appear to be the result of illegal surveillance activities, carried out by the Colombian National Army, against at least 130 people; the situation for human rights defenders, highlighting the increase in risks to defenders and their families due to the quarantine measures; and the situation of the armed conflict that persists in regions of Colombia causing forced displacement, selective killings, massacres, alleged extrajudicial killings and sexual violence.

They ask the Colombian government to implement the Peace Agreement and to ensure that all of its measures against the pandemic and its subsequent actions are carried out with total respect for human rights and its international commitments to human rights and peacebuilding.
