Colombia: The Human Rights Situation in Colombia. Amnesty International’s written statement to the 31st session of the UN Human Rights Council (29 February – 24 March 2016)
Amnesty International reiterates its support for the work of the Office in Colombia of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to improve respect for human rights. Its work, especially human rights monitoring, will become even more critical given the uncertain human rights challenges of a peace agreement between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). This statement presents an overview of Amnesty International’s concerns in Colombia, and recommendations to HRC members and observer states.
