Colombia’s Peace Tribunal indicted for the first time ten commanders of the terrorist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) for recruiting and using minors in their operations.
In addition, the court attributed other crimes against humanity to FARC members, including murders, disappearances, and the use of anti-personnel mines.
The court noted that the FARC used “recruitment as a political-military strategy as an armed organization,” with particular recurrence since the late 1990s . . .
