Worker’s murder marks trade deal

Tuesday 18 December 2012

Just hours after the EU-Colombia Free Trade Agreement was signed on December 11, another cold-blooded assassination of a Colombian trade unionist occurred on, activists said today.

Gunmen killed Milton Parra Rivas, an electrician at the Termotecnica subcontractor of Spanish-based CEPSA.

Mr Rivas was a leading activist of Union Sindical Obrera, leading the permanent workers’ assembly.
