MTV English News on X: "Luis Diaz: Liverpool Striker's Parents Kidnapped in Colombia https://t.co/qcDIvS5zkM https://t.co/btKhFhs2BI" / X

Both parents kidnapped last weekend.
Only mother rescued Authorities “demand release”

The father of English Premier League (EPL) Liverpool striker Luis Diaz (Colombia) has been kidnapped by the Colombian rebel National Liberation Army (ELN).

“Diaz's father has been kidnapped by rebels,” British media outlet BBC reported on March 3 (KST).

Díaz's parents were abducted from a barranca in the northern Colombian department of Guarajira on March 29.

A team of Colombian law enforcement officials launched a search, and only her mother was recovered. His father is still missing, with foreign media reporting that the ELN kidnapped Díaz's father.

Initially, police said the criminal organization was likely responsible, but a government delegation holding peace talks with the rebel group said it had “official information” that the abduction was carried out by ELN-affiliated units.

The ‘BBC' said: “The ELN is Colombia's main guerrilla group. It has been fighting the state since 1964 and has around 2,500 members,” explaining that it is “most active in the border region with Venezuela, where Díaz's parents live.”

“Otti Patiño, the head of negotiations between the ELN and the government delegation, said in a statement in Spanish that they ‘demand the immediate release of Díaz's father,'” the report said.

Diaz's club, Liverpool, recently paid tribute to him after a 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest in the 10th round of the 2023-2024 EPL, saying “we won for a brother” and hoping for a quick resolution to the situation.

Diaz is a key goal scorer not only for Liverpool but also for the Colombian national team. He is one of Colombia's most sought-after resources.

His father's kidnapping has sparked outrage in his own country, with his mother and citizens marching in the streets of Barrancas recently to demand his safe return. 카지노사이트
