Interpol is set to prepare international arrest warrants for three Irishmen who have went into hiding after being sentenced to 17 years in a Colombian prison.

"We presume that perhaps they're no longer in the country, that they left illegally through some point on the border or with false documents," said Victor Cruz, director of Interpol in Colombia.

Cruz said Interpol was co-ordinating with the Colombian justice system to issue international arrest warrants for James Monaghan, Niall Connolly and Martin McCauley, which would be circulated among 182 countries.

The three men had been ordered to remain in Colombia pending an appeal but the attorney general's office said their whereabouts were now unknown.
