Señor Don
Werner Mauss


Dear Werner,

I have received the material – both on video and in writing – which, among other things, shows the very important activities carried out by yourself and your wife with the ELN in the interests of peace in Colombia.

Unfortunately, we, in our discussions, are still very far away from achieving quality which you were able to achieve in this exceptionally important matter. On behalf of my former government and myself I wish to express my highest regards for all your efforts.


Yours sincerely

Ernesto Samper Pizano
