Defense minister Juan Manuel Santos says tree hostages are located very near to where the recently released Clara Rojas was kept. The hostagetaker would be know under the alias of Arnúbal. On february 2nd, the FARC announced the upcoming release of Perez, Beltran and Polanco, who would be handed over to those appointed by president of Venezuela, Hugo Chávez. Wednesday, France’s foreign minister said that Gréchem would join the group. Colombian intelligence expects the 56-year old Géchem to be less than 15 kilometers (9 miles) away from the other three hostages, but his health would be so poor he can’t be reunited.
