Further information on EXTRA 34/94 (AMR 23/53/94, 7 July; and follow-ups AMR 23/55/94, 8 July and AMR 23/57/94, 1 August) - Colombia: "disappearances": President must promulgate draft law against "disappearances"

, Index number: AMR 23/070/1994

The new government of President Samper which took office on 7 August 1994 has to date failed to take a firm stance against former President Gaviria's objections to the draft law against "disappearance". The Ministers of Defence, Interior and Foreign Relations have been invited to attend a plenary session of the Senate of the Colombian Congress on 21 September, and it is hoped that they will attend the meeting and firmly reject the former President's objections.
