Supreme Court of Colombia supports the extradition of “Jesús Santrich” to the United States.


(CNN Spanish) – The Supreme Court of Justice of Colombia ruled in favor of the extradition of former FARC guerrilla Seuxis Paucias Hernández Solarte, alias “Jesús Santrich”, requested by the United States government to prosecute him for alleged drug trafficking crimes in federal court.

«The ruling, issued by the Criminal Cassation Chamber of the highest court of ordinary jurisdiction, determined the origin of the delivery of the armed deserter of the Agreement for Peace signed by the National Government with the FARC because, among other reasons, the conduct of conspiracy to commit a crime and drug trafficking that are accused abroad lack political connotation, “they explained in a statement.

The whereabouts of “Jesús Santrich”, who belonged to the Revolutionary Armed Forces (FARC), is unknown. On June 30, 2019, he abandoned the protection scheme derived from the Peace Agreement. Currently, a red Interpol circular is against him for his location and detention in 194 countries, according to the National Police.

In addition, since 2020 Seuxis Paucias Hernández Solarte faces charges in the Court for the Southern District of New York for “conspiring to commit narco-terrorism, conspiracy to import cocaine and associated charges for firearms.” The US State Department offers a reward of up to $ 10 million for information leading to his arrest. CNN does not know if it has representation in the United States.

According to the highest court, the Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP) declared “Jesús Santrich” as a “manifest armed deserter of the peace process.” This resulted in the loss of any transitional justice benefits.
