Colombia: Amnesty International response to Andrés Ballesteros, Jorge A. Restrepo, Michael Spagat, Juan F. Vargas, The Work of Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch: Evidence from Colombia, CERAC, Colombia, February 2007
In this response Amnesty International refutes the accusation that AI's work on Colombia is anti-government. The Orgnaization is at a loss to understand clearly why the paper chooses to focus its main criticisms on AI. The Organization has never sought to construct a hard data base nor has it sought to make any detailed quantitative claims. This is not AI's mandate and never has been.
