The Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa, “asked and accepted” economic support from FARC to finance his electoral campaign in 2006. The information was given by IISS (International Institute for Strategic Studies) who gathered the material from the former rebel chief Raul Reyes.
Files and other sources suggest that Correa personally asked FARC for illegal funds as well as the political and financial support of the Colombian guerrilla. However, FARC members in Ecuador did not enjoy any support like they did in Venezuela.
IISS said that one of the files from Reyes showed that the incursions of FARC in Ecuadorian territory are as much as a problem for the government of Quito and Bogota.
