Leaders of the FARC-EP appear before the JEP in Colombia

"Our commitment to the truth and the victims is decided!", Emphasized Pablo Catatumbo through his account on the social network Twitter.

Several leaders of the former insurgent group of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia - Ejército del Pueblo (FARC-EP), among them Rodrigo Londoño , will appear this Friday before the Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP) of Colombia , to begin rendering accounts for the crimes of kidnapping and disappearance committed during the conflict.

From 2:30 p.m. at the headquarters of the JEP in Bogota (capital), the Truth and Accountability Recognition Room will hold the first hearing to deliver to the 32 cited "a list of people allegedly illegally retained by the former guerrilla".

In addition, the magistrates of the Recognition Room will notify each of the parties that they have information about their respective cases.

Pablo Catatumbo, one of those summoned, stressed that national reconciliation merits recognition of responsibility. "That's what the JEP was designed for: our commitment to the truth and the victims is decided!" He said on Twitter.

In the case of Seuxis Paucias Hernández Solarte, better known as Jesús Santrich , he will not be able to attend personally since he is being held in the Picota de Bogotá prison.

"For reasons of security and since there is the possibility of carrying out said diligence in a virtual way, it is necessary to arrange the pertinent so that it is carried out through videoconference," the director of the Directorate of International Affairs of the Prosecutor's Office, Ana Fabiola Castro.
