MORE FARC/NGO HANKY-PANKY:

Spanish police say they have arrested the representative of the left-wing Colombian rebel group Farc in Spain. Maria Remedios Garcia Albert, a Spanish national, was detained near Madrid, as part of a joint operation by the Spanish and Colombian authorities. She faces charges of being part of an armed group and managing the rebel group’s finances in Europe. . . .

The BBC’s Steve Kingstone in Madrid says it is alleged that under the cover of her job with a non-governmental organisation, Ms Garcia provided organisational support and funds to the Farc.

The NGO sector could probably use a bit more scrutiny.
