The Truth Needs Allies

After the exhumation process in the presence of prosecutor Gustavo Duque, the family is briefly allowed to view the packet (sealed with evidence tape) containing the remains of Benjamin Bustamante Rios killed by the FARC (Revolutionary armed forces of Colombia) in November 1997.

This process at present takes about a year. After the 99.999 positive DNA identification the remains are finally given to the family.
