Colombia: Open Letter to the Presidential Candidates

, Index number: AMR 23/013/2006

This letter outlines AI's key human rights concerns and recommendations, which AI believes would significantly contribute to resolving the country's long-standing and bloody armed conflict, which has caused the death or "disappearance" of more than 70,000 people, the vast majority civilians killed out of combat, and the displacement of more than 3 million over the last 20 years. AI is calling on all the presidential candidates to incorporate these recommendations into their election manifestos and make a public commitment to comply with them should they emerge as the winner of the presidential election.
