FARC Agreed to Disclose the Truth about El Nogal Club Bombing

BOGOTA – The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) on Wednesday agreed to the demand to disclose the truth about the 2003 bombing on the El Nogal Club in Bogota, which killed 36 people and injured 198.

An agreement, signed by the victims and the guerrillas, required a public meeting to be held at El Nogal with the aim of disclosing the details of the attack.

The Truth Commission, created on Wednesday following the decree of the Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, will preside over the event.

Bertha Lucia Fries, representative of the victims from the El Nogal attack, said that such an agreement shows progress made in “revealing the truth about one of the most shocking incidents in Colombia.”

Carlos Antonio Lozada, member of the FARC’s secretariat, its highest governing body, was present at the signing of the pact.

A car bomb was detonated at the El Nogal club on Feb. 7, 2003.

Colombian authorities said there were more than 600 people inside the club at the time of the explosion.

The Colombian government and the FARC signed a peace deal on Nov. 24, 2016, ending their armed conflict that lasted for more than 50 years.
