Human Rights and the Colombian Peace Process

April 17, 2018

Colombian Constitutional Court has to debate the approval of a fast track mechanism that would speed up voting on bills linked to the peace process, including amnesty for FARC guerrillas. The Colombia's Congress approved the government's controversial revised peace deal to end a half-century conflict with leftist FARC rebels after voters on October 2 surprisingly snubbed an earlier version of the accord in a referendum. / AFP / Guillermo LEGARIA (Photo credit should read GUILLERMO LEGARIA/AFP/Getty Images)
