Scandal of Vulnerable Colombian Citizens Killed for €1,500 Bonus http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/world/2010/0619/1224272868802.html
People working for paramilitaries and criminals went to the poor barrios around Bogotá and lured youths, some disabled, others with criminal pasts, others with offers of work. Then they were sold to military units, who executed them and presented them as guerrillas killed in action. It was a perverse human traffic which led many of these people to death,” says Jorge Enrique Rojas of Codhes, a human rights group in Bogotá.
The Uribe administration introduced the kill bonus for units reporting higher enemy body counts in 2005 as part of its intensifying offensive against the Farc. But the policy instead resulted in an increase in civilian disappearances. Up to 2,000 potential “false positive” deaths are now under investigation, and Rojas says the final total could reach much higher.'
