Rebel group holding Luis Diaz’s dad hostage confirm assurances needed for release | #ukscams | #datingscams | #european

The rebel group holding Luis Diaz’s dad captive want assurances from the government before he’s released.

It last week emerged that the National Liberation Army of Colombia (ELN) were behind the abduction of Diaz Sr and his wife Clienis Marulanda. She was found hours later without her husband.

The leftist insurgency group claimed they were unaware one of their units had pulled off the kidnapping and vowed to let him go. But in a statement issued on Monday (November 6), they told the government they want “security guarantees” first.

Signed by unit leader Commander Jose Manuel Martinez Quiroz, it read: “On November 2, we informed the country of the decision to release Mr. Luis Manuel Diaz, father of the player Luis Diaz. From that date, we began the process to accomplish this as soon as possible. We are making efforts to avoid incidents with government forces.

“The area is still militarised, they are carrying out flyovers, disembarking troops, broadcasting and offering rewards as part of an intense search operation. This situation is not allowing for the execution of the release plan quickly and safely, where Mr. Luis Manuel Diaz is not at risk.

“If operations continue in the area, they will delay the release and increase the risks. We understand the anguish of the Diaz-Marulanda family, to whom we say that we will keep our word to release him unilaterally, as soon as we have security guarantees for the development of the liberation operation.”
