Colombian rebels pledge to free Canadian

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

Colombian rebel group ELN said on Monday it would soon free a Canadian citizen it seized six months ago after his employer, gold miner Braeval, decided it would no longer mine in the area where he was kidnapped.

The smaller of Colombia's two insurgent groups said the mining company's decision "showed goodwill" and brings closer the release of geologist Jernoc Wobert.

Toronto-based Braeval Mining told the government last week it would no longer explore in Bolivar, the region where Wobert was kidnapped.
