Court rules Colombia’s peace process is state policy for 12 years

Thursday, October 12, 2017

Colombia’s constitutional court ruled Wednesday that the coming three governments are legally bound to executing a peace deal made with FARC guerrillas last year.

The judicial shield for the peace process is a relief for President Juan Manuel Santos, who spent most of his two terms in office negotiating and executing peace after more than half a century of armed conflict with the rebels.
