COLOMBIA: UN Urges Congress To Approve Special Jurisdiction For Peace

11/07/2017 - 15:46:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in Colombia defended the creation of the Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP) by the South American country's Congress as "fundamental for the effective fulfillment of international obligations in the field of human rights."

The Special Jurisdiction for Peace is the model of transitional justice agreed upon in the peace agreement between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) former guerrilla group.

The jurisdiction aims at investigating and bringing to justice people responsible for crimes related to an armed conflict that resulted in thousands of deaths over more than a half-century.

The OHCHR stressed that the compliance to the JEP by all the parties is a way of guaranteeing the clarification of the truth and the reparation to the victims.

"The granting of judicial benefits to those responsible for international crimes outside this framework may entail the international responsibility of the State," the agency warned.

"Despite the efforts promoted by the State in the fight against impunity, serious challenges remain to ensure effective judicial protection for the victims, and this mechanism represents hope for accountability in the country," the U.N. OHCHR concluded.
