Bogota_ The Alternative Revolutionary Force of the Common (FARC) party denounced Wednesday a significant reduction in the Colombian government’s security system to protect the leaders and members of that group, Prensa Latina reports.

'There is a policy of increasingly restricting the security program to those of us who laid down our arms, and that worries us', declared Carlos Antonio Lozada, a FARC congressman.

According to the FARC leadership, claiming austerity, the national government has withdrawn part of the armament they had assigned for the protection of their militants and to guarantee the physical security of the members of the group's National Political Council who move to regions.

The ex-guerrilla's concern arises after an alleged directive was issued by the government's National Protection Unit (UNP) limiting such security schemes.

Meanwhile, the Union to which the ex-guerrillas leaders´ escorts belong asked the government to provide the necessary resources for their work.

The FARC also rejected the government's decision to lift the table of the Commission for Monitoring, Promoting and Verifying the Implementation of the Final Agreement, after the ex-guerrilla's management sent a letter to the UN Security Council, in which it refers to breaches in the agreement.
