前反政府武装头目从美国引渡回哥伦比亚 Former Colombian Paramilitary Chief Extradited from US

一位被指控犯有数以千计罪行而被通缉的前哥伦比亚武装头目星期二从美国引渡会哥伦比亚。

赫伯特·威尔查·加尔希亚在哥伦比亚面临谋杀和雇佣儿童兵等多项指控。

他于2007年被捕,后来被送到美国以贩毒的罪名在监狱服刑。哥伦比亚的人权活动人士对此十分愤怒,担心他可能再也不会在哥伦比亚受到司法制裁。

哥伦比亚经历了50多年游击战冲突之后,政府去年与主要反叛力量“哥伦比亚革命武装力量”签署了和平协议。哥伦比亚革命武装力量解除了武装,转型为一个政党。

哥伦比亚政府目前正与第二大反政府力量“民族解放军”进行谈判。

A former Colombian paramilitary chief who is wanted for thousands of crimes was extradited back to Colombia from the United States Tuesday.

Hebert Veloza Garcia faces numerous charges in Colombia including murder and recruiting child soldiers.

He was arrested in 2007 and later sent to the United States and jailed on charges of drug trafficking - a move that angered Colombian human rights activists who feared Veloza Garcia would never face justice back home.

Colombia is emerging from more than 50 years of guerilla war after the government signed a peace treaty last year with FARC, the main rebel group. FARC has disarmed and is transforming itself into a political party.

Negotiations are currently under way with the country's second main opposition force, ELN.
