Credit Score: FARC Forced to Borrow from Local Businesses to Feed Demobilized in Camps; Government Not Delivering (S)


The news site Pacifista had access to a report of the Mechanism of Monitoring and Verification that reveals that FARC have become heavily indebted with local businesses in Caldono, department of Cauca. The government-promised delivery of goods has not been enough to feed all camp residents.

According to the report, there have been constant delays and major shortages of supplies, both in the volume of foodstuffs and the number of people they are supposed to feed. This is nothing new and has already been denounced, it says. FARC now owes around 13 million Colombian pesos in Caldono.

The note says other camps face similar situations. There are currently over 7,000 FARC fighters in 26 camps across Colombia.¡Pacifista!
