Further information on EXTRA 34/94 (AMR 23/53/94, 7 July; and follow-up AMR 23/55/94, 8 July) - Colombia: "disappearances": President must promulgate draft law against "disappearances"

, رقم الوثيقة: AMR 23/057/1994

There is continued concern that the draft law against forced "disappearances" which was approved by the Colombian Congressional House of Deputies and Senate on 7 and 8 June 1994 will be rendered ineffective if presidential objections to the law are upheld. In a statement issued on 21 July President Gaviria failed to withdraw his objections to the law and instead made clear his intention to ratify the Inter-American Convention with reservations. On 27 July a congressional commission was set up to examine the President's objections and has just under three weeks in which to present its conclusions.
