On 24 January lawyer Jhon Fredy Concha Valbuena was shot to death. On 1 February lawyer Jorge Enrique Belalcázar Gutierrez was shot and injured. Gutierrez had previously been denied protection measures by the National Protection Unit. In response to mounting violence against lawyers in Colombia, LRWC joined the Colombia Caravana and others to publish an Urgent Alert calling on Colombia to provide effective protection for lawyers at risk and implement measures to improve safety and decrease the extreme dangers faced by lawyers in Colombia.
