Early this year, the Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP) warned that the lives of ex-combatants and social leaders "are at extremely high risk" due to multiple threats, homicides, disappearances, and kidnappings.
The JEP reported that 864 leaders were killed between 2016 and 2020. Most of them were carrying out tasks to implement the 2016 Peace Agreements.
Norte de Santander, Antioquia, Choco, and Nariño are the departments with the highest figures of these assassinations.
