The statement indicates that "from now on his release process begins" and emphasizes that he wants to "avoid any incident" surrounding this kidnapping.

The head of the Government delegation in the peace talks with that guerrilla, Otty Patiño, reported on Thursday that the kidnapping of Díaz and Cilenis Marulanda, parents of the Colombian extreme, perpetrated last Saturday in the town of Barrancas, in the department Caribbean man from La Guajira, when they were traveling in their vehicle, "was perpetrated by a unit belonging to the ELN."

Marulanda was released hours later, although the guerrillas are holding the player's father hostage.
