Colombian authorities row over Farc jail terms

April 14, 2013
Colombia - Colombia's attorney-general has said members of the rebel group Farc could escape jail terms should a peace deal be struck.

Eduardo Montealegre was reacting to earlier suggestions that Colombia could become a "rogue state" if an agreement allowed rebels to walk free.

Mr Montealegre said no Farc activists had yet been found guilty of crimes against humanity.

This week, thousands of people marched in support of the peace talks in Cuba.

The demonstrations, on Wednesday, came as Mr Montealegre announced that arrest orders against six Farc members had been suspended as part of the negotiations.

The activists are said to be part of Farc's negotiating team taking part in the talks aimed at ending five decades of violence.
