“Today the community received the information that Clever Cantincuz Diaz was murdered in the Tulcán sector where he was carrying out his reincorporation process” FARC representative in Nariño Yuliana Cruz briefed to local news media.
He was found dead from bullet impacts on the farm where he worked, in Tallambi locality. Nariño authorities did not receive threats or intimidation reports. According to FARC, Canticuz was a local activist and fish farmer.
The former guerrillas point to President Ivan Duque’s administration as largely responsible for the killings, given their indifference for social and indigenous leaders, as well as former combatants.
Earlier this year, @JZulver & I (and many journalists in Colombia) reported that armed groups are using #Covid_19 quarantine to target and assassinate social leaders, who are stuck in their homes. Those systematic killings have only continued for months: https://t.co/3Lmp1oQcX3
