The European Union starts helping to fight the colombian narco-terrorist guerrilla FARC.
Bogota, Colombia.- The Community Police of America (Ameripol) and the European Union signed an agreement today in Bogota to pursue organized crime and the links to narco-terrorists guerrilla groups like FARC.
The agreement includes a contribution of 1.5 million euros (about $ 2 million) by the European Union over the next three years, according to a press release from the Nariño Palace, headquarters of the Colombian executive.
According to the president of Ameripol , Luiz Fernando Correa, who is also Director of the Federal Police of Brazil, the alliance with the europeans includes identifying, locating and prosecuting people involved directly or indirectly with the guerrillas, whether in one or other continent.
He explained that the agreement, which links more than 40 countries, is providing mechanisms for cooperation to fight drugs and crime through sharing databases, exchange of real time information and training tools , and also with the exchange of officers and personnel from different police forces.
While in Bogotá, Correa met with the Director of the National Police of Colombia and Ameripol executive secretary, General Oscar Naranjo Trujillo.
Nine months ago, the European Police Organization (Europol) received information that demonstrated the presence of links to the guerrillas of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) in 17 nations of Europe. Recently, a spanish judge revealed alleged links between the venezuelan government of Chavez, with the FARC and the terrorist group ETA. However, the European police organisation Europol is facing hard times. A few weeks ago, the Europol Head Quarter in The Hague was raided by a special Dutch police team following the arrest of a French official on the accusation of forgery. But new trouble is underway: confidential documents of the Dutch police show that Europol is a disfunctioning organisation.
