Colombia pledges to facilitate hostage handover

COLOMBIA: The Colombian Government pledged Thursday to facilitate the handover of five hostages held by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) to former Senator Piedad Cordoba.

According to a statement issued by the Colombian Presidency, Colombia “is prepared to guarantee the necessary security conditions in order to realize the operation as quickly as possible.”

FARC said that they decided to release three officials from the police, army, and navy, and two other regional officials.

FARC did not specify the date for the handover, but said in a letter to Cordoba that this will depend on the safeguards provided by the government to carry out the operation.

In response, the government said it is willing to allow Cordoba’s participation as an intermediary, “as long as it takes place with complete and total discretion.”

Early Thursday morning, Cordoba told Radio Caracol radio that she “does not think the hostages will return to their homes before the end of the year.”
