The extradition of former paramilitary boss Hebert ‘HH’ Veloza —
expected within 24 hours — leaves crimes against thousands and the
disappearance of dozens unanswered.
His extradition comes too soon for him to finish his collaboration with Colombian Justice and to confess the crimes he committed as one of the most feared leaders of the AUC.
Victims of paramilitary violence object to the extradition, saying the reparation process isn’t over.
According to newspaper El Espectador 11,000 crimes are still unanswered. Most are about the massive forced displacement that took place in areas where ‘HH’ and his Block ruled, but also include the unsolved forced disappearance and probable death of 177 people.
