DROI Chair concerned about restrictions faced by Colombian political opposition


After his meeting with Gustavo Petro, the leader of the political opposition in Colombia, on Thursday, EP Subcommittee on Human Rights (DROI) Chair Antonio Panzeri stated:

"The increase in incidents against human rights defenders and political opposition representatives in Colombia, who face all kinds of restrictions in their daily work, is alarming. This situation seriously endangers the peace agreement, including the implementation of the special jurisdiction for peace (JEP in Spanish).
