Former Colombian Senator Piedad Corodba is set to collaborate with Venezuela-backed TV channel TeleSur on a series of programs focusing on Latin America and the Caribbean, Spanish news agency EFE reports.
The series, named “Just Causes,” will consist of 13 programmes and concentrate on social, economic and political themes in the region.
Very little information has been released on the project so far with only one program being announced, which be about Haiti. It is widely presumed that one of the programmes will focus on Colombia.
Since being expelled from the Senate in 2010 and barred from holding public office for 18 years for her alleged ties to the FARC, Cordoba has concentrated her attention on her group “Colombians for Peace.”
She oversaw the release of six FARC hostages earlier this year, during which she expressed her desire to act as a mediator in any future peace negotiations between the government and the guerrilla group. However, she has since clarified that she will not push the government on peace talks.
