Colombia: Peace Agreement Must Open the Door to Justice

Amnesty International

The ratification of the peace agreement marks the beginning of a new and hopeful chapter in Colombia’s history, but the real hard work starts now, Amnesty International said today.

Last night, Congress ratified a revised version of the peace agreement between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) after the original deal was rejected by a referendum on 2 October.

The ratification paves the way for the FARC to begin to demobilize and disarm in a process to be implemented over six months.
