On the past January 22 the Farc kidnapped the graphic reporter of the Urabá Hoy newspaper, Hernán Echeverri, initially demanding, 300 million pesos, but then they changed the extortion and they conditioned their relatives to give to the press a document in which this terrorist grouping "would denounce the Army".
The family accomplished with what was demanded. They handled in the document but they didn't liberate the 64 years-old citizen.
The family received from the terrorists the answers to a questionnaire that they had sent in previous days to know if he was alive. "Hernán is alive, although without knowing in what conditions", Irene Echeverry affirmed, sister of the plagiarized to an AFP journalist.
This journalist's kidnapping evidences the way as how the Farc terrorists try to manipulate the public opinion and how they use mechanisms that violate the Colombians human rights; as well as it also confirms that the actions of these groupings have made of our country the most insecure for the journalists, according to what was stated by the Interamerican Press Society (SIP) and other organizations.
