ELN rejects murder of indigenous leader in Colombia

Bogota, Jun 10 (Prensa Latina) The National Liberation Army (ELN) on Thursday repudiated the murder of the authority of the Nasa people Argenis Yatacue and her husband, at the entrance of the municipality of Corinto in the Colombian department of Cauca.

Likewise, it rejected the authorship of the crime that the guerrilla force is being accused of committing.

‘We clarify to the Colombian people and especially to the Association of Indigenous Councils of Northern Cauca that we are not the perpetrators,’ the ELN said in a communiqué.

ELN’s members add that, with the purpose of delegitimizing its political struggle in arms, this false flag action is being carried out.

They also invite the media to contrast the information in order not to report ‘assumptions.’

Finally, the ELN’s representatives express their solidarity with the indigenous peoples and communities that are victims of State terrorism.

The Association of Indigenous Councils of Northern Cauca detailed that the incident took place in the early hours of Wednesday morning at the entrance to the urban center of Corinto when armed men killed the couple without saying a word.

Argenis Yatacue was a teacher, but she was also recognized as Sa’t We’sx (ancestral authority) of the territory.
