Colombia asked Interpol to put out an international arrest warrant
for a Mexican student who survived the bombing of a rebel camp in
Ecuador last year, Colombian newspaper El Tiempo reported Wednesday.
According to the newspaper, the Prosecutor General’s Office requested the student, Lucia Morett, to be included in the international police’s ‘red notice’, a list of suspects who need to be arrested.
Colombian authorities say the student was a member of the FARC and want her to be extradited to Colombia to stand trial on rebellion and terrorism charges.
Ecuador also seeks the extradition of Morett for allegedly endangering the country’s security.
The student, Lucia Morett, is currently in her home
country where she took part in federal elections that could result in her receiving parliamentary immunity.The results of the elections will be known on August 23.
Morett was one of the few survivers of the March 1, 2008 cross-border attack on the camp of the FARC’s number two, ‘Raul Reyes’. The rebel commander and 25 others were killed in the Colombian attack.
