The revolutionary group holding Luis Diaz’s father hostage has demanded” security guarantees” before his release.
The National Liberation Army( ELN) said the ongoing service and police hunt” will delay the release and increase the pitfalls”, Colombian media reported.
Luis Manuel Diaz was abducted at gunpoint along with his woman
in Barrancas, Colombia on 28 October.
Liverpool player Diaz has called on the kidnappers to free his father incontinently and end a” painful delay”.
His mama was abandoned in an auto after the hijacking as police closed in, but his father was taken hostage.
Colombia transnational Diaz came off the bench to salvage a point for Liverpool with a cessation- time thing at Luton Town on Sunday in his first match since his parents were abducted.
The ELN reiterated its intention to release Diaz’s father” as soon as possible”.
But, in a statement inked by commander Jose Manuel Martinez Quiroz, it added the current scale of the hunt operation accepted by the Colombian authorities was delaying that process.
“We are making sweats to avoid incidents with government forces,” the ELN said.” The area is still militarized, they’re carrying out flyovers, disembarking colors, broadcasting and immolation prices as part of an violent hunt operation.
“This situation isn’t allowing for the prosecution of the release plan snappily and safely, where Mr Luis Manuel Diaz isn’t at threat.
Still, they will delay the release and increase the pitfalls,” If operations continue in the area.
“We understand the anguish of the Diaz Marulanda family, to whom we say that we will keep our word to release him unilaterally, as soon as we’ve security guarantees for the development of the emancipation operation.”
Both of Diaz’s parents were seized at gunpoint in his birthplace of Barrancas, in the northern fiefdom of La Guajira, by left- sect guerrillas of the ELN.
But, while his mama was set up later that day, his father remains missing and the Colombian government has stationed hundreds of police and dog faces in the hunt.
Diaz, 26, hadn’t featured for Liverpool since their Europa League palm over Toulouse on 26 October but returned to the team for Sunday’s Premier League match at Luton.
After scoring his side’s equalizer, Diaz lifted his shirt to show a message of” freedom for pop” and later released a statement calling for his father’s release.
“I supplicate that they free him incontinently, esteeming his integrity and ending this painful delay. In the name of love and compassion we ask them to review their conduct and allow us to have him back,” Diaz said.
