Young peasant disappeared and assumed murdered by paramilitaries

Cristian Granados Hernandez from the municipality of El Bagre in Antioquia disappeared on 25th January 2017. Cristian is the nephew of Gloria Granadas, an active member of the local peasant organisation AHERAMIGUA. Days after his disappearance relatives and friends of Gloria received phone calls saying that Cristian had been killed “like a dog” and was now in a ditch where “worms were now feeding on him”.

The disappearance and apparent murder of Cristian comes shortly after a death threat was circulated in the region and after a long recent history of murders of members of AHERAMIGUA.
