Colombia .- The representative of the Chamber of Colombians abroad, Juan David Velez, requested on Monday through a letter to President Ivan Duque to break diplomatic relations with Cuba, for refusing to extradite the ELN leaders who are in that country. The request was published through the social networks of the congressman of the Democratic Center, where he explained that in the island country, are the subversive leaders Nicolas Rodriguez, alias “Gabino,” Israel Ramirez “Pablo Beltran,” and Victor Orlando “Aurelio Carbonell” who have not been extradited despite the frequent solitudes of the Duque government.” It is public knowledge that, in an articulated and planned manner, illegal groups carried out a terrorist attack against the 30th Brigade of the National Army in the border city of Cucuta on 15 June, leaving more than 35 people injured. This attack has similar characteristics to the one perpetrated against the General Santander Police School committed by the ELN, which left 22 cadets killed and more than 86 injured,” velez said.Read more: Police kick two journalists and a young man during protest in Colombia He added that according to the investigations carried out by the Attorney General’s Office , there is an alliance between dissident groups of the FARC guerrillas and the ELN.
