UN to monitor Colombia human rights policy

The United Nations will begin to monitor the Colombian Defense Ministry’s human rights policy in accordance with a request from the Colombian government, Caracol Radio reported Friday.

Defense Ministry Gabriel Silva said that the arrangement, which will seek to detect irregularities, is unprecedented.

“It will allow us to recognize and correct problems, anticipate difficulties and guarantee fundamental human rights to Colombians,” said Silva.

The Defense Minister stressed Colombia is at an important stage in its democratic security strategy and can not afford any mistakes when it comes to human rights.
