 ASM Kidnap and High-Risk Specialist Insurance
Echeverri said that the planned release has been delayed because of differences between the government and the guerrillas on how the handover should take place: the ELN insists on releasing its hostages one by one while the government says they should be released as a group.
The guerrillas’ demand that the government examine the condition of indigenous people in northern Magdalena department is little more than a token designed to obscure the real reasons for the hostages’ release.
Although neither the government nor the guerrillas will admit as such, their release is probably a reciprocal gesture following the granting of early parole for imprisoned ELN commander Carlos Arturo Velandia (alias ‘Felipe Torres’) earlier in October.
