Movimiento de Víctimas de Crímenes de Estado

MOVICE is a coalition of human rights organisations founded in 2005, which monitors human rights violations committed by the state in the context of the armed conflict and calls for state agents and paramilitaries to be brought to justice. It works for the rights of victims to have truth, justice, and full reparation. Because of their work, MOVICE members have faced threats, physical attacks, arbitrary detentions, kidnappings and assassination attempts, and several people were killed.
