International Police Organization Interpol warranted the arrest of Ómar
Arturo Zabala Padilla, who, according to Colombian authorities, is the
contact person between the FARC and controversial press agency Anncol.
Sweden-based Anncol often publishes press releases by the FARC and in its opinion articles often takes the side of the Colombian guerrillas and is accused by the Colombian government of being part of the FARC’s network.
Zabala is alleged to be the person that links the Swedish press agency with the Colombian rebels. Authorities base the accusation on files they say were found on the computer of slain FARC commander Raul Reyes, who was in charge of the foreign relations of the guerrillas.
The 40-year old Zabala is wanted by Colombia for “financing terrorism and the administration of resources related to terrorist activities,” Colombian newspaper El Tiempo reported Friday.
It is unknown if the suspect is in Europe or Latin America.
