Colombo-Venezuelan Guerrillas Investigation Makes Global Headlines


InSight Crime’s most recent investigation, "The Colombo-Venezuelan Guerrillas: How Colombia’s War Migrated to Venezuela," has received massive media attention, making headlines in Colombian, Venezuelan, and international outlets like CNN, El EspectadorNewsweek, RCN, El Colombiano, El Pitazo, Blu Radio, and EFE wire service, among many more. InSight Crime co-director Jeremy McDermott also participated in several interviews with Caracol Radio and 88.9FM.

You can watch last week’s panel discussion on the #BinationalGuerrillas with English subtitles. 

InSight Crime investigator Alex Papadovassilakis authored an opinion piece for the Washington Post related to our investigation on timber trafficking on the Guatemala-Mexico border, "The Jungle Patrol: Fighting Illegal Loggers on the Guatemala-Mexico Border."
