Colombia: The Victims and Land Restitution Law: An Amnesty International analysis
On 10 June 2011, President Juan Manuel Santos signed into law the Victims and Land Restitution Law. The Law and its associated decrees cover a range of interrelated issues. This report focuses specifically on its provisions dealing with land restitution, an aspect of the Law that has provoked strong opposition both from sectors of society who fear it may jeopardize their control of lands seized illegally through human rights violations, and those seeking the return of lands they were forced to abandon.
