Colombia: Police abuses in Carcasi
Pastor Ballesteros Tarazona, a farm worker, and Jose Terry Perez Castellanos, an agriculture student, were found shot dead on 12 October 1992 in Carcasi. Carcasi, in the Magdalena Medio area of Central Colombia, has been the focus of political violence for several years. They had been seized by armed men on 11 October 1992. Their killings were denounced by the local priest, Father Rafael Duarte Ortiz, who has since been threatened and subjected to an attack on his life, both reportedly the work of the police.
