A displaced farmer from the northern Antioquian Urabá region, said
Thursday ‘Karina’, the FARC guerrilla who surrendered a few months ago,
Miguel Páez and his wife, one of the few victims of Karina who presented themselves in Bogotá to testify against the former leader of the FARC’s 47th front, testified she chopped off his penis and testicles with a machete.
Paéz, in tears, told how Karina and her fellow guerrillas stopped the bus he had taken from work. “They told everyone to get out of the bus. When we were out, all passengers who were carrying their military ID’s were tied up,” he said.
The farmworker was told to follow the guerrillas into the jungle, but refused. After that “she removed my penis and testicles with a machete,” the man said.
When Páez’ wife tried to relief her husband, ‘Karina’ beat her with her rifle, fracturing one knee, the toes of her left foot and causing a permanen lesion in her anckle.
Paéz, who fled his home after the incident and now lives in Bogotá, stated he only wanted justice, because there was no way ‘Karina’ could repair the pain caused to him and his wife.
