Council focuses on forced disappearances

Yesterday’s City Council session focused on the issue of forced disappearance, which continues to affect Medellín and the Aburrá Valley.

Between January and November of this year there have been 643 missing person reports filed in Medellín; 263 of these victims were found alive and 36 of them dead, but the whereabouts and fate of the remaining 344 is unknown.

In the rest of Antioquia, guerrilla groups and criminal gangs are thought to be responsible for this type of crime, but in Medellín and the surrounding areas authorities believe criminal ‘combos’ are to blame.
