FARC Guerrilla Known As "El Paisa" Captured in Darien

Panama News By Grisel Bethancourt for La Critica - A 14 year-old member of the guerrilla Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) was captured yesterday in Playa Luciano in the coastal sector of Jaque in the Darien, by units of National Border Service (SENAFRONT). The boy identified as "El Paisa or Pituche" was walking along the beach near Playa Luciano near the Darien border area together with another presumed Colombian guerrilla when members of the SENAFRONT conducted a pursuit, resulting in the capture the child, who subsequently admitted to being a guerrilla from Urabá in the Antioquia department of Colombia, while the other subject escaped and police are searching for him in the Darien jungle. The two Colombian guerrillas were in Panama trying to obtain food and logistics, confirmed a police source. The minor, who said he was recruited by the FARC two years ago, can not read or write and will be transferred to Panama City from Jaque and will be placed in the custody of the proper authorities.

Editor's Comment: The FARC doesn't "recruit" but rather they forcibly conscript these young kids into service. This kid was taken from his home village at the age of twelve, and has spent the last two years living in the jungle as a Colombian guerrilla. At this point the FARC has lost all resemblance of any kind of a "valid" revolution - they are simply the soldiers who move and protect the drugs for the cocaine traffickers.
