FARC Farce

So it's been revealed that the three Irishmen who were cleared of terrorism related charges have now been found guilty by a Bogota court.The earlier verdict displeased the Colombian government who appealed and as a result the three men will now face up to 17 1/2 years behind bars.

In my opinion this decision is unacceptable and it is time the Irish government pressed for the three men to be brought home to face an Irish court.It is clear the Colombian authorities cannot be trusted to uphold justice judging by the numerous reports of mistreatment of the prisoners.
Indeed I learned on RTE tonight the families of the men do not even know of the whereabouts of the men!
Bring them home.Now.
