Will narcos be allowed to snitch at war crimes tribunal?

by Jake Kincaid February 13, 2019

More than 300 narcos and paramilitaries want to add their side to the convoluted history of the armed conflict and testify to organizations behind the peace process.

The group, calling itself the Committee of Prisoners for the Truth of Colombia, sent a letter from La Picota prison in Bogota to the Special Judiciary for Peace, the United Search for the Disappeared and the Truth Commission, three investigative bodies to investigate war crimes.

“Many of those who have signed below have been murderers but also victims,” the letter reads.”We consider that there will not be a complete reconciliation, much less an integral reparation for the victims if we do not tell the public our individual and collective part.”

Drug traffickers and war lords have previously said to also have damning information about the country’s politicians and security forces.
