“Strengthening Legal Medicine is urgent”: Luz Marina Monzón | Judicial

Luz Marina Monzón, director of the Search Unit for Missing Persons, UBPD, attended the commemoration of the fifth anniversary of the signing of the Peace Agreement.

In his speech to President Iván Duque, the Secretary General of the UN, Antonio Guterres, the other entities of the Comprehensive Peace System and victims of the armed conflict, Monzón emphasized the importance of counting on other State institutions to effectively carry out the search for persons disappeared by the armed conflict, “We need greater and determined support for the Search Unit by the various institutions of the State, including the Attorney General’s Office.”

Finally, Monzón insisted on the centralization of victims in the implementation of the Peace Agreement and highlighted the effective result of the national plan and regional search plans in the country.
