Colombia’s Interpol office, which was recently transferred from DAS authority to the charge of the national police, is currently working on 685 cases, of which 293 relate to the capture of members of FARC and 49 to the capture of members of the ELN, W Radio reported.
“Our priority is the FARC … and their movements around the world,” said Interpol’s secretary general, Ronald Noble.
The chief of Colombia’s national police, Oscar Naranjo, stressed the importance of collaboration between countries to achieve these captures.
“We already have processes in place in nine other countries and we expect to be working with more in order to bring about these arrests,” he said.
Interpol’s statement also specified that of the 685 cases being investigated by the organization, 33 involve the capture of narco-traffickers, 33 the capture of ex-paramilitary members, 15 of criminal gang members and 12 the location or capture of directors of money-laundering businesses.
