Tracking and surveillance

  • 29 February: at 8.30am the room was searched where human rights defender Fabian Laverde Doncel, president of the council of directors of the Social Corporation for Community Advisory and Training Services (COS-PACC), was staying in the city of Yopal, by Sub-lieutenant Fernando Heano Parra and Patrolman Edwin Nuñez Ducon of the Casanare Toursim Police. No other guest room at the hotel was searched.[1]

Detentions and prosecutions

  • 27 June: Martin Ayala, director for the Social Corporation for Community Advice and Training (COS-PACC), was arbitrarily deprived of liberty and tied to a tree when he asked the police to explain why they were interrogating and searching for his friend, only meters away from the Monserrate Police Station in Bogota[2].
