"Father Giraldo, director of a leading Colombian human rights organization, carefully explains Colombia's human rights crisis, citing statistics on political violence and relating eyewitness accounts of extrajudicial assassinations and massacres. Directly implicates the Colombian State in these actions, calling the political regime a 'democratatorship,' a government based on the rule of impunity rather than the rule of law"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57. http://www.loc.gov/hlas
