He discussed the issue on his¬†radio program “The Hour of Truth,” claiming that guerrillas are abandoning areas where members are supposed to surrender their weapons.

According to Santiago Castro, a member of the radio program, former Minister Fernando Londo√Īo sent emails¬†to him¬†and other officials involved in the peace talks¬†asking them about rumors of armed clashes¬†among FARC¬†members.

Twenty minutes after the email was sent, he responded:

“No one knows where the people¬†who leave are going,” referring to what could be¬†FARC dissidents, members who prefer to stay off the grid due to¬†their links¬†to¬†drug trafficking¬†and illegal mining¬†that fund guerrilla operations.

 

Since the beginning of the peace talks, several guerrillas have said they intend to stay out of peace talks with the government, preferring instead to¬†continue fighting against the country’s political system.

Colombia’s armed forces reportedly discovered a FARC camp in the southwest¬†department of Guaviare led by Ivan Mordisco in possession of weapons, explosives, drug trafficking route plans and even a classroom for teaching their ideology.
