ELN has recently delivered a test of the survivors of Ismocol oil company engineer Rafael Andres Riano, who was kidnapped in the Arauc Department on January 13th. Until a few hours ago, his happiness was completely unknown.
The only thing his family knew about him was that ELN had him in the Venezuelan territory, and for the information given by the Government. Therefore, they were not able to reach the area where they remain in jail for their rescue. When her sister, who was already upset, went to find the news about her brother in the Saraven Park, two of them drove her to a motorcycle and led her to the outskirts of the city, where they gave her a USB stick with evidence of survival.
"The message is for my family, to tell them I love them very much, they start evaluating the moments they leave aside, I want to thank my brothers, I know they paid me attention," says Raphael in a test that delivered the guerrilla group to their families
Famous by two guerrillas, in a dark-blue t-shirt and eyelids, and bearing the ELN flag in the background, Rafael said he had a few days ago had access to a message sent by one of his brothers and stated that he was physically well
"I was okay, do not worry, the issue of migraine that worries you are okay, get drugs, I'm physically good and good treatment of happiness," said the engineer on the video, the patient's patience.
In the meantime, relatives of Jorge are waiting for his early release and claim that over the past few months, guerrillas have told them that they will only be removed from the detention camp until Ismocol withdraws the pipeline action in the area.
It should be noted that ELN also has been holding her in power since March in Arauc Department, the son of the former governor of that department, Jose Leonardo Ataia, the current manager of a public services company. He is said to have been taken to Venezuela.
