Government insists reform doesn’t condone impunity

With the military justice reform approved, the Government walked away satisfied with having achieved success in one of its top priority projects and keeping its promise to members of the Armed Forces, who were asking for judicial guarantees in the face of the armed conflict.

The reform was passed despite strong opposition from human rights defense groups who fear expanding the jurisdiction of military courts over crimes committed by members of the Military promotes impunity. Defense Minister, Juan Carlos Pinzón, insisted that the reform does not favor impunity nor does it constitute a step backwards in the struggle to protect human rights.
