That this House notes with concern that Congressman-Elect Jesus Santrich of the Peoples' Alternative Revolutionary Force has been on hunger strike since his arrest on 9 April 2018 on allegations of conspiring to traffic drugs; welcomes the statement by the UN Verification Mission in Colombia outlining that the Special Jurisdiction for Peace has the competence to review the case of Congressman-Elect Santrich; further notes the Colombian Supreme Court reiterated this view; urges the Government to encourage the Colombian Government to follow due process and to support the institutions created under the Peace Agreement; and calls on this to happen as quickly as possible given Congressman-Elect Santrich's continuing hunger strike.

This motion has been signed by a total of 19 MPs.
