The Bogotá office of Colombian human rights organization COSPACC was robbed and looted.  Electronic and hard-copy files containing information about human rights violations are missing.

On 23rd of January, after entering the building, COSPACC managers noticed that their office doors were opened and locks were damaged. The managers immediately called the police and with their presence entered the offices. They found that the drawers of the desks, library and archive were opened; external hard drives and memory sticks with electronic archives, hard-copy files and photo cameras were taken.

COSPACC workers have noticed that the main entry door to the building was not damaged and that some valuable items, such as computers, were not stolen from the office.
