Iván Márquez assessed the implementation of peace agreement

In a video interview published by Red de Prensa Alternativa del Suroccidente Colombiano, FARC-EP spokesperson, commander Iván Márquez has said that “paramilitarism acts openly and with impunity in front of authorities. Over 120 social leaders and members of Marcha Patriotica have been murdered since the signature of the Final Peace Agreement, last November. We will not allowed – he added – a repetition of the genocide against the Union Patriotica”.


Assessing the implementation of the agreements Iván Márquez said that the guerrilla has honoured its commitments, included the registration of weapons to be delivered to the UN these days. In the near future, he added, the FARC-EP will also deliver position of arms and explosive caches.


The FARC-EP spokesperson warned that the deposits where the first weapons were sealed have two keys: “One is in the hands of the UN – he said – while the other is in the hands of the FARC”.


Iván Márquez also pointed out that despite the announcement of President Santos’ government last Easter Monday, according to which some four thousand guerrillas would be set free, this has not happened and he warned that judges cannot obstruct the process. In the past three months, he said, some 117 people have been freed because of the Amnesty Law.
