Jail for peasant who raised hostages son

2 posts in this topic

A court in Colombia has sentenced a peasant who looked after the baby son of a Farc hostage to 33 years in jail.

Jose Crisanto Gomez was found guilty of kidnapping and extortion.

In 2005, Farc rebels handed him the baby of Clara Rojas, a woman they were holding hostage and who had given birth in captivity.

Mr Gomez looked after the child for seven months before handing him over to a state orphanage, where he stayed until DNA tests revealed his identity.

A court in the central city of Villavicencio overturned an earlier decision to absolve Mr Gomez of the charges.

Two things sort of make me wonder about that whole mess...

1. Did he know it was the baby of a hostage? Perhaps he thought it was just the baby of one of the FARC's women...

2. Do they still call people peasants down there?.... That's so.... feudal....
