Colombia III

After more than six hours of attending the assembly, community members formed commissions to come up with three possible methods of punishment.

The three options were then presented to the whole assembly, where it was voted that the three accused would serve 15 years of prison time in cells "rented" to the Indigenous Council of Jambaló, who will remain in charge of the prisoners.

The three men will be eligible for early conditional release after six years, depending on their behaviour.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
