Bogota (AFP) - Colombian prosecutors seized $98 million worth of buildings, land and assets belonging to the leftist FARC force as it disbands under a peace deal, an official said Thursday.
"We have frozen property worth nearly 282 million pesos" belonging to the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), public prosecutor Nestor Humberto Martinez told a news conference.
Authorities "also managed to identify property that is the result of illegal activities such as drug trafficking," he said.
The FARC are demobilizing after signing a peace accord with the Colombian government last year following more than half a century of conflict.
The government has also launched negotiations with the last remaining active rebel group, the National Liberation Army (ELN).
Authorities say the war has cost 260,000 lives.
