2. Colombia still Haunted after Massacre
Colombia still Haunted after Massacre

Bogota, Nov 8 (Prensa Latina) A massacre over two decades ago is seeding discord today at the Justice Palace in this capital, between the Colombian government and the top justice authorities.

The presidency rejected statements by the Supreme Court of Justice President Cesar Valencia, who called the action by the military agents then "imprudent, insane and cruel."

The text said it was wrong to compare the attack by the guerrilla group M-19 on the Justice Palace in 1985, which caused 100 deaths and numerous missing people, to the effort made by the military agents to defend and release the hostages.

In a meeting on Tuesday, the anniversary of that incident, Valencia said the action by the military agents was undemocratic with an irrational and unmeasured operation, without taking into account those people's physical integrity.
