Colombia wants fingerprints of Dutch FARC member

27th September 2010, Comments 0 comments


Colombian forensic police have asked the Dutch embassy in Bogotá to supply fingerprints and dental records of Dutch FARC rebel Tanja Nijmeijer.

Possibly the information is needed to establish the identity of rebels killed by the Colombian army attack on a FARC base last week, but the Dutch Foreign Ministry could not confirm this.

Dutchwoman Tanja Nijmeijer, who is 32, joined the Colombian guerrillas years ago. She may have been on the scene of last Thursday's attack which killed the notorious rebel commander, Mono Jojoy.

Most of the bodies of the FARC members who were killed have been identified, but there are no indications that Ms Nijmeijer was among them, according to the Dutch Foreign Ministry.
