Attackers torture Colombian activist, 2 sons to death

(MENAFN) The National Coordinator of Coca, Poppy and Marijuana Growers, Coccam Cauca (Coccam) declared the killing of a Colombian father and his two sons in rural Cauca.

The deaths have been discovered after a group of unidentified attackers accessed their house in the town of Bolivar, tortured and murdered Jaime Rivera, aged 52, before slaying his two sons, Jaime Reinel, aged 20, and Jeison Mauricio Rivera, aged 23 at about 5 am that morning.

Both Rivera and his son Jaime were identified as key figures in their community who, on many events, headed demonstrations rejecting state-executed eradication missions aiming at coca crops.

They have been called by members of their town as supporters of the peace agreement and staunch allies of the National Comprehensive Program for the Substitution of Illicit Crops.
