Colombia: FARC accused in forced abortions | World War 4 Report


Colombia: FARC accused in forced abortions | World War 4 Report: Colombian authorities alerted their Spanish counterparts to arrest Arboleda after his former assistant was arrested in Medell�n two months ago. "The order was clear. The units couldn't fill up with recently born children and those who refused to cooperate had to be processed and eliminated,” the assistant was quoted as saying by Semana. Some of the victims were young indigenous women from the community of Zabaleta in Choc� who had been forcibly recruited, according to the account. The Fiscal�a puts the number of forced abortions carried out by the FARC in the thousands, with Arboleda alone responsible for some 500.

Spanish authorities have yet to determine if Arboleda was in the country legally, in which case he will have the right to challenge his extradition and apply for asylum. He remains free while the matter is pending. (Colombia Reports, La Raz�n, Madrid, Dec. 14)
