Dejusticia asked the Constitutional Court to declare invalid Decree-Law 249 of 2017 (DL 249/2017), for two reasons: in issuing this rule, the President of the Republic exceeded the special powers for peace because it did not demonstrate the strict necessity to regulate this subject by this extraordinary way; and the contracting procedure that regulates DL 249/2017 violates the constitutional principles governing public procurement.
Dejusticia presents on precautionary principle to the Constitutional Court in case of illicit crops fumigation with glyphosate

Dejusticia intervened in the revision process of a writ of constitutional protection case due to the violation of the indigenous community Nasa's right to prior consultation in Putumayo, resulting in the aereal fumigation with glysophate of illicit crops.
We ask the Justice Ministry, as the President of the National Narcotics Council, the Technical Secretary of that organization, and the Anti-Narcotics Director of the National Police, to immediately suspend all glifosate spraying operations in the Colombian territory, in application of the precautionary principle.
