Hundreds of right-wing paramilitaries are expected to walk free from prison beginning in March 2014 after serving eight-year sentences for crimes that normally carry more than triple the prison terms. Their lenient sentences were enshrined in a 2005 “Justice and Peace” law that provided a legal framework for the militias’ supposed dismantling under a peace deal with the government of then-President Alvaro Uribe.
