Law for victims rejected


After two years of being studied in Congress, the bill which sought to redress around 4 million victims of Colombia’s decade-long civil conflict was rejected yesterday by the majority in Congress, which is loyal to the government. It was argued that it goes against president Alvaro Uribe’s democratic security policies and that there is not enough money to finance the project.
