Fuerzas Militares, 2001. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. Format is approximately 10.75 inches by 8.25 inches. 92 pages. Illustrations. This publication provides information on the effect of the guerrilla activities of FARC, ELN and comparable groups on Columbian citizens. This publication lists and describes the cases occurred since August 1998 to July 2001, regarding which, the armed groups outside the law--guerrilla or illegal self defense groups--in addition to incurring in behaviors clearly sanctioned by local criminal laws, commit serious infractions to International Human Rights Law. The statistics refer taking of hostages, attempts against the environment, attacks against civil property, attacks against civil individuals and villages, attempts against protected property and other series of facts that openly ignore the regulations prescribing basic human rights, indispensable in order to respect specially protected individuals and property. The majority of criminal facts committed in Colombia are the result of illegal actions and inhuman and criminal violence broken loose by the guerrilla and illegal self-defense groups, which ignore the most elemental principles of civilization and continuously incur in threats, outrages and cruelty, through behaviors that flagrantly ignore the right to life and the personal integrity of many citizens.
