The Office in Colombia of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in Colombia denounced this Wednesday that the FARC dissidents set fire to one of their vehicles in the department of Caquetá (south) where a humanitarian mission was traveling.

The attack occurred in the Girasoles hamlet, which is part of the municipality of San Vicente del Caguán, a fact that was rejected by the Colombian Government.

“The Office in Colombia of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights reports that this afternoon one of its vehicles was incinerated by men who identified themselves as FARC dissidents,” the entity reported in a release.

The information adds that the Office was on a mission with the Ombudsman’s Office and the Truth Commission and that both the UN Human Rights staff and the other members of the mission are doing well.

In this regard, the Colombian Foreign Ministry stated that the Government of Colombia condemns and rejects this attack.

Added to this rejection was the Ombudsman’s Office, which in a statement detailed that “the attack was carried out by armed men from the dissidents of the 40th Front of the extinct FARC, who forced the officials to get out of the vehicles and incinerated the truck. “

He added that the humanitarian mission was in the area accompanying the community and social leaders, to guarantee the exercise of their human rights.

“This aggression seriously contravenes the norms of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) that establish special protection for people and civilian objects, as well as for people who carry out humanitarian missions in favor of the civilian population,” said the Ombudsman.
