Colombia's 'Truth Commission' releases its final report on five decades of armed rebellion


(MENAFN) In an emotional event in Bogota, Colombia's "Truth Commission" delivered a delayed report on the Latin American countries over 50 years of conflict.

The commission's final report, issued on Tuesday, was the result of hours of interviews with victims, armed players, and public officials involved in the armed fight waged by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia against the US-backed Colombian government (FARC).

The commission was founded in 2016 as part of the Colombian government's historic peace accord with the FARC.

According to the National Center for Historical Memory, the 800-page report focuses on widespread human rights violations and criminal practices that occurred across Colombia during the country's 52-year armed struggle against the violence perpetrated by the country's notorious, US-trained police and military forces, which killed over 260,000 civilians and displaced up to 5 million people.
