Follow up report on Buenaventura: New Killings, Disappearances in Pacific Port

The Human Rights Watch team returned to Buenaventura,  a  year after the Colombian government announced  measures to curb the violence in the port. On March 6, 2014,  after Human Rights Watch released its report The Crisis in Buenaventura, President Juan Manuel Santos announced a “special intervention” to improve public security and dismantle paramilitary successor groups there. But new Human Rights Watch research shows alarming levels of abuses by the groups since the intervention began, including disappearances, sexual violence, and child recruitment. The groups have driven at least 6,900 residents from their homes since Santos’s announcement, with the municipality still having the highest rate of forced displacement in Colombia.
