COLOMBIA: Farc Hands Over All Its Weapons To The UN

06/27/2017 - 21:55:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) handed over the last portion of its arsenal, in the final act of the arms abandonment by the guerrilla group. FARC's weapons were delivered in a public ceremony in the state of Meta within the framework of the peace agreement signed last year with the Colombian government. On behalf of the FARC, Rodr?guez Londo?o, a.k.a. Timochenko said that this day does not mark the end of the group, but the end of its armed uprising, and noted that it would continue as a political party in its path to legality. Londo?o said that the guerrillas complied with its commitment to hand over its weapons and stressed that now the government must fulfill its part and cease political persecution in Colombia. The group demanded the freedom of guerrillas who remain imprisoned six months after the implementation of an amnesty. President Juan Manuel Santos indicated that Colombia searched for the peace agreement in the hope that in the future the FARC will use "words" as their only weapon. After handing over its weapons, FARC members have begun its path towards political life. They must create a political party to be measured in the polls and win seats in Congress. Last years' peace agreement guarantees five seats in the Senate and five in the House of Representatives to FARC members during the next two constitutional periods. The United Nations (UN) certified that in the containers handed over there are 7,132 FARC weapons, except 700 that will be used momentarily to provide security in the transition zones.
