                              May 19, 1999

 Mr. Green of Wisconsin (for himself, Mr. Farr of California, Ms. Lee, 
and Mrs. Mink of Hawaii) submitted the following resolution; which was 
          referred to the Committee on International Relations



Condemning the kidnapping and murder by the Revolutionary Armed Forces 
 of Colombia (FARC) of 3 United States citizens, Ingrid Washinawatok, 
                  Terence Freitas, and Lahe'ena'e Gay.

Whereas Ingrid Washinawatok, a member of the Menominee Indian Nation of 
        Wisconsin, Terence Freitas of California, and Lahe'ena'e Gay of Hawaii, 
        were United States citizens involved in an effort to help the U'wa 
        people of northeastern Colombia;
Whereas Ms. Washinawatok, Mr. Freitas, and Ms. Gay were kidnapped on February 
        25, 1999 by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), a group 
        designated a foreign-based terrorist organization by the United States 
        Department of State;
Whereas the FARC brutally murdered these 3 innocent United States civilians, 
        whose bodies were discovered March 4, 1999;
Whereas this Congress will not tolerate violent acts against United States 
        citizens abroad;
Whereas the FARC has a reprehensible history of committing atrocities against 
        both Colombian and United States citizens, including over 1,000 
        Colombians abducted each year and 4 United States civilians who were 
        seized for a month in 1998;
Whereas it is incumbent upon the Government of Colombia to quickly and 
        effectively investigate, arrest, and extradite to the United States 
        those responsible for the murders of Ms. Washinawatok, Mr. Freitas, and 
        Ms. Gay; and
Whereas the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is empowered to 
        investigate terrorist acts committed against United States citizens 
        abroad: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives--
            (1) decries the murders of Ingrid Washinawatok, Terence 
        Freitas, and Lahe'ena'e Gay;
            (2) strongly condemns the Revolutionary Armed Forces of 
        Colombia (FARC);
            (3) calls on the Government of Colombia to find, arrest, 
        and extradite to the United States for trial those responsible 
        for the deaths of these United States citizens; and
            (4) emphasizes the importance of this investigation to the 
        United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and urges 
        the FBI to use any and every available resource to see that 
        those who are responsible for the deaths of these United States 
        citizens are swiftly brought to justice.
