In the last few days the FARC(Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) freed two policemen abducted, the most emblematic case is that of Pablo Emilio Moncayo, one of the hostages was longer, 12 years held by the FARC, was kidnapped aged 19 today is 31 years old passage of an almost-adolescent youth, found in 2010 as an adult, with part of his life lost, who would be in limbo for 12 years.
