Human Rights In Colombia

EDM number 1492 in 2017-19, proposed by Lloyd Russell-Moyle on 06/07/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Human rights and Latin America.

That this House recognises the invaluable contribution Colombian human rights lawyers make to advocate for victims' rights, justice, truth, and accountability within the context of the armed conflict; supports the Peace Agreement between the Colombian Government and the FARC, as signed in Havana, Cuba in November 2016; welcomes and encourages further steps to be taken by both State and non-state actors that honour the spirit of Peace Agreement and that support a legal, political, and social transition towards a sustainable peace; raises concern about reports of increased violence against human rights defenders and their families and calls for swift, thorough and impartial investigations into crimes committed against human rights defenders; is further concerned regarding the lack of progress in the investigation into the 2016 assassination of Eduardo Andres Martfnez Castellanos, brother of threatened human rights lawyer Rommel Duran Castellanos and the serious threats that Rommel Duran Castellanos continues to receive due to his human rights legal practice.

This motion has been signed by a total of 25 MPs.
