PBI-UK extends our sympathy and support to the friends and family of Mario as well as our colleagues at the Peace Brigades International-Colombia Project and the wider PBI family following the death of Mario Paciolla. We urge that all the necessary investigations be carried out in order to establish the truth.
"Mario exuberated all the energy of an authentic Neapolitan, which he fully dedicated to the search for justice, and human rights defenders adored him. The PBI family will miss you a lot." - Fernando Berdon, Mario's ex-colleague.
