The Colombian Army dismantles the main network of killers of the leader of the FARC dissidents in Meta

The Colombian Army has dismantled the main network of killers of the leader of the dissidents of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), “Gentil Duarte”, from the Meta department.

The network, in which, according to the army, the “most unscrupulous” killers in Colombia worked, operated in the community of La Macarena. They carried out murders of merchants, ranchers and transporters who did not pay what was asked of them.

The network “managed the hit men responsible for intimidating the population into paying large sums of money,” said the commander of the Omega Joint Task Force, Raúl Flórez, who described the dismantling of “Gentil Duarte” as a “violent blow”.

The operation, in which the police and the prosecutor worked together, led to the arrests of “Alejandro”, “Lavao” and “Chepe”, according to information from Blu Radio.

“Among the prisoners is ‘Alejandro’, who had privileged information from government institutions, contractors and a bank that allowed him to know who would withdraw large sums of money to blackmail him,” said Flórez.

“‘Lavao’ was responsible for some of the properties that are part of the frontmen of ‘Gentil Duarte’. He was also the one who collected the blackmailing tour operators in La Macarena,” he added. More than 8,000 Colombian soldiers are working to capture ‘Gentil Duarte’.
