The Weltwoche Dossier on Swiss Diplomacy and the FARC

Posted by John Rosenthal

The Swiss weekly Die Weltwoche has much more on the subject of "international mediation" in the Colombian hostage crisis and, in particular, the role of Swiss envoy Jean-Pierre Gontard. E-mails found on confiscated FARC computers strongly suggest that the supposedly "neutral" mediator was in fact colluding with the FARC leadership and may even have served as a money courier for the "narco-guerilla" (as author Alex Baur describes the organization).
