For­mer Colom­bia rebel re­grets peace deal

The National - News - - WORLD NEWS -

A for­mer Colom­bian rebel leader resur­faced in a video months after he turned his back on the peace deal amid a US drug-traf­fick­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Lu­ciano Marin says in the video that he re­grets the de­ci­sion by the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Armed Forces of Colom­bia to hand over its weapons un­der the 2016 peace deal, ac­cus­ing the gov­ern­ment of be­tray­ing its com­mit­ments to the guer­ril­las. The group’s for­mer chief peace ne­go­tia­tor did not re­veal his lo­ca­tion in the video posted on Satur­day by the Bo­li­var­ian Press Agency. He had not been seen since Au­gust when he gave up a seat in con­gress. US of­fi­cials are in­ves­ti­gat­ing Mr Mar­quez for al­leged drug traf­fick­ing after the deal was signed.
