The left-wing ELN insurgent group, branded a terrorist organisation by the US government and EU, was yesterday identified as the organisation responsible for Luis Manuel Diaz's abduction.
A female guerrilla fighter known only by her alias of Patricia who heads an ELN regional unit called the Northern War Front orchestrated the crime, Colombian media reported earlier on Friday.
The ELN, which is currently holding peace talks with the government after declaring a ceasefire in its long-standing war against the Colombian state, had promised to secure 58-year-old Mr Diaz's release in a matter of hours after being identified as the culprits.
Speaking from Washington during an official visit to the US, Mr Petro said: 'The ELN's authorship means the ELN today is responsible for the life of the father of Luis Diaz.
