On November 12, 2016, the Colombian government reached a new peace deal with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). According to reports, the new agreement modifies the former deal, which was rejected by voters in a nation-wide plebiscite in August. The new pact includes provisions “for FARC fighters to face jail and community service, for the FARC to turn over financial information, and for investigations of crimes to be commenced within the narrower window of [sic] next two years.” It is not yet clear if the new agreement will also face a referendum. The government and the FARC have been in conflict for decades, resulting in over 220,000 deaths.
