||We understand that there are members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia
(FARC) on hunger strike in 13 prisons across the country. Whilst the United Kingdom
cannot interfere in Colombia’s judicial process, we have in the past raised concerns
regarding due process and prison conditions with the Government of Colombia – particularly
in relation to imprisoned trade unionists. That said we do not currently intend to
make specific representations to the Colombian government about the current hunger
strike by members of the FARC.
