Colombia seeks arrest of FARC dissidents
The Colombian justice has ordered the capture of dissidents of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) who appear in the video posted yesterday announcing the return to arms.
The Special Jurisdiction for Peace has revoked the suspension of the arrest warrants and conditional liberties obtained by the guerrillas after the signing of the Peace Agreement in 2016.
Colombian High Commissioner for Peace, Miguel Ceballos says Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro has given "clear support" to these dissidents.
Ceballos believes the guerrillas are in Venezuela and that the video was recorded there.
The high-ranking official calls on the FARC to expel the dissidents.
Venezuela: Experts warn of new illegal currency
Nicolás Maduro's regime has created a new platform for the purchase and sale of Petro, an illegal and unrecognized crypto currency.
The new portal, called Patria Remesa, seeks to be used in money transfers from abroad using foreign currency in exchange for Petro.
However, experts warn it could be a strategy to appropriate the remittances sent by Venezuelans to their families in the context of the humanitarian crisis.
Petro was created in January 2018 by the governments of Russia and Venezuela.
Economists warned then that Petro is a way to evade international sanctions and to receive benefits from remittances.
