They kill a social leader and his wife in northwestern Colombia

MADRID, Jan. 27 (.) –

The Institute of Studies for Development and Peace of Colombia (Indepaz) has confirmed the death of social leader Álvaro Peña and his wife, Rosalba Tarazona, less than 24 hours apart.

The country’s authorities have pointed out that Peña’s death was recorded on Tuesday, while his wife was attacked the day after leaving her mother-in-law’s home in Saravena, in the department of Arauca.

Regarding the case, the commander of the Arauca Police, Coronal Freddy Pérez, has reported that, in collaboration with the Attorney General’s Office, the corresponding protocol has been activated to find the “authors of this murder”.

With these, there are already more than 50 people who have lost their lives in Arauca due to violent incidents, including the 27 who died at the beginning of 2022 due to clashes between the National Liberation Army (ELN) and dissidents of the extinct Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC).

In addition, the government of President Iván Duque has imposed a curfew in some parts of the department after the explosion of a car bomb in Saravena, which caused one death and left 20 people injured.

With this measure, the Executive seeks to prevent terrorist acts in the municipalities of Saravena, Tame, Arauquita and Arauca capital, according to the Ministry of Defense, although the governor of Arauca, Alejandro Navas, considers the measure insufficient.

“It is a message to make us aware that we are in a delicate situation, but it is something symbolic. Practically comfortable hours were chosen, late at night and early in the day,” said Navas, according to Caracol Radio.
