To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, if he will make representations to his Colombian counterpart to investigate the assertion by Colombia’s Special Jurisdiction for Peace that between 500 and 600 people could be buried in unmarked graves in the zone of the Hidroituango construction project.
We are aware of the ongoing investigation by Colombia's Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP) into the possibility of unmarked graves in the construction zone of the Hidroituango dam project. It would not be appropriate to comment on the detail of an ongoing investigation by the JEP. The United Kingdom has provided financial and public support to Colombia's transitional justice system since it was set up. We continue to work closely with the Colombian government and civil society on the peace process and related matters.
