Betancourt urges forgiveness for Colombian peace

TAKING RESPONSIBILITY:The former hostage said all Colombians had to assume responsibility for the war, adding that if she met her captor, she would hug him


Betancourt remembered that the FARC commander who held her prisoner was quite brutal. He was captured during her release and has been in jail for the past five years.

Would she forgive him?

“Life gave him the possibility to understand what he made us go through since he’s now a prisoner, like we were,” she said. “If I had him in front of me, I would simply hug him.”
