Jorge Molano is a human rights lawyer from Colombia who works on cases of displacement and extra-judicial killings. He has also worked with the Peace Community of San Jose de Apartado in Colombia, members of which were killed for their reluctance to get involved in the Colombian internal armed conflict. Jorge has also represented family members of the persons who disappeared in the Palacio de Justicia case, when hostages were taken in the Justice Palace by urban guerrilla group M-19, and the Colombian armed forces subsequently took over the Justice Palace. He is currently working on cases relating to the gathering of information and surveillance of human rights defenders by intelligence services.

We will discuss Jorge’s work, the situation of lawyers and human rights defenders in Colombia, what the future looks like after the signing of the peace agreement in Colombia, and the Special Jurisdiction for Peace.
