Colombia Police Find FARC Propaganda T-shirts

COLOMBIA / 11 MAY 2011 BY INSIGHT CRIME EN

Police in the south Colombia department of Nariño seized more than 280 shirts and 230 scarves in camouflage print, featuring images of deceased FARC leaders including ‘Mono Jojoy’ and ‘Raul Reyes.’

The clothing was hidden between matresses that were being transported on a bus traveling from Ipiales to Medellin, El Tiempo reported. The transport police found the items at a road block close to Ipiales, near the Rumichaca Bridge, which is a key crossing point from Ecuador.

Police arrested two people, thought to be members of the rebels’ Mario Velez Front, in the Ivan Rios Bloc.
