Colombia: the Peace Dividend

Listen in pop-out player

Colombia has been trapped in a vicious civil war for half a century, but now peace negotiations are finally bearing fruit. Most Colombians support the peace process, but they also believe that the rebel guerillas should be held to account for the horrific crimes they have committed - kidnapping, torturing and murdering thousands of people, attacking towns and villages. What peace dividend can Colombians expect if the talks are successful and what compromises will the government have to make? Business Daily interviews President Juan Manuel Santos of Colombia and asks him whether he is guilty of trading justice for peace.
