The head of the United Nations Verification Mission in Colombia Jean Arnault said “reintegration in the current circumstances in Colombia is a very complex task, and both sides have an important role to play in completing it successfully.”
Addressing the Security Council today (10 Oct) on the report of the Secretary-General on the United Nations Verification Mission in Colombia, the Mission’s chief Jean Arnault said that a heightened subject of concern is the sense of legal uncertainty that remains pervasive among former FARC-EP members.
He said “this is not a situation unique to Colombia. Reconciling peace and justice is everywhere a controversial and emotional issue. To overcome it, the Colombian peace process has sought to innovate by bringing together the full guarantees of due process, victims’ participation and the benefits of restorative sanctions.”
Arnault also noted a positive view of political participation in his country. He mentioned that eight of the ten FARC representatives afforded seats in the two chambers of Congress have assumed their responsibilities and are contributing to the debates and the legislative activities.
