Newly released documents from the computer of a deceased guerrilla commander revealed plans to car bomb former Colombian president Alvaro Uribe.
Among the hundreds of documents that on Tuesday were leaked by Analisis24.com, an Argentine website, is evidence that the FARC was planning to attack a convoy carrying then-president Alvaro Uribe in the heart of Bogota, “regardless of the number of casualties” that might come as collateral from the bomb. The uncovered documents also describe how female guerrillas were forced to have abortions and small offenses such as the loss of a bullet were grounds for execution. Also released was a letter from the FARC secretariat to current Nicaraguan autocrat Daniel Ortega thanking the latter for harboring Colombian rebels.
After a 2010 bombing strike killed “Mono Jojoy,” Eastern Bloc commander of the FARC — Colombia’s largest left-wing insurgency — authorities recovered highly incrimintating files from the commander’s computer that have since been periodically released for legal and political purposes.
In the past, the computer files have been used to charge alleged FARC co-conspirators.
