The kidnapper of a Miami man was in custody in Colombia — then he walked free

The U.S. Embassy in Colombia is questioning the country’s decision to release a member of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, who’s wanted in the U.S. for the 2008 kidnapping of an American citizen in Panama. The hostage was thought to be Cuban-American businessman Cecilio Padrón, who was also a former director of the Cuban American National Foundation.

The camp is one of 26 where the FARC have gathered as they begin the transition to civilian life in the wake of a historic peace deal last year. Morales said the government has failed to provide basic services at the camp but that the peace process is “irreversible.”
