Torture/"Disappearance"
COLOMBIA:Alvaro MORENO MORENO, aged 29
Amnesty International has learned with concern that the body of Alvaro Moreno
was found on 4 February 1991 in the municipality of Tocancipá, north of Bogotá
in the department of Cundinamarca.
According to the Procurator General's Special Investigations Office,
Oficina de Investigaciones Especiales de la Procuraduría General de la Nación,
the body of Alvaro Moreno bore signs of torture. Further reports indicate
that the body was removed without authorization and is now missing from the
morgue to where it had been transferred for an autopsy.
A 29-year-old industrial engineering student, Alvaro Moreno Moreno was
detained on 3 January 1991 by members of the national police in Bogotá. On
4 January Alvaro Moreno's father was informed that his son was being held by
the Judicial and Investigative Police headquarters, Dirección de Policía
Judicial e Investigación, (DIJIN). However, this was later denied by police
authorities.

on 3 January 1991;
- requesting an independent inquiry into his killing in order to bring those
