On February 17th, Colombian oil sector workers Campo Elías Ortiz, Héctor Sánchez and José Dilio Naranjo were granted parole awaiting trial.
All three men are workers and union leaders in companies contracted by PACIFIC RUBIALES in the Department of Meta. They were arrested on December 4, for the serious charges of aggravated kidnapping, obstruction of roads, conspiracy to commit a crime, threats, and violation of the right to work.
To all of the individuals and organizations who made their release possible thank you so much for your support! We urge you to continue to stand together with all three men until all their charges are dropped.
