“My name is Emilio Ospina Rodriguez. I’m fifteen years old and I live in the rural area of La Florida near Mocoa, Colombia. When I was thirteen, I was kidnapped from my village by a commando of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia. I became a childsoldier. I can’t find words to describe the fears and anxieties I endured during my years of fighting. I re-read a few pages of my diary, which quickly become soaked with tears. Keeping silent on the physical and emotional pain I suffered would have made me crazy.”

One day, disguised as a merchant, the sultan left his palace without telling anyone in order to check if his law was respected in the kingdom. An unbelievable story? Not so sure…
