Director of the National Center for Historical Memory would have modified an exhibition on the armed conflict

The JEP opened an incident of contempt against Rubén Darío Acevedo, director of the National Center for Historical Memory (CNMH), to determine if he modified an exhibition on the armed conflict without agreeing with the victims.

If this action is verified, the director of the CNMH would have ignored the precautionary measures that prevent the content of the pilot exhibition of the National Museum of Memory of the Victims from being modified.

According to what was stated with El Espectador in a publication dated June 4, experts argued that the script presented in the exhibition would have ignored curatorship and museology and would have simplified the investigation into the emergence and actions of the guerrillas and drug trafficking without exposing the role of the paramilitaries in the Colombian armed conflict.

The JEP’s Absence of Recognition Section gave the National Center for Historical Memory five business days to submit the approved documents for the content destined for the Museum.

In addition, Rubén Darío Acevedo must submit his defenses and the minutes containing the changes made to the script, as well as the resumes of the members of the National Center for Historical Memory.

It is worth mentioning that, according to that medium, the text presented by Acevedo describes the period of conflict from the 1990s to 2000 as a security crisis due to the mafias and the guerrillas who refused to negotiate, while he speaks of the democratic security of Álvaro Uribe as “a policy of strengthening authority”, without showing the crimes committed by the Public Force within its framework.
