Colombia 3 appeal for Ahern.
Caitriona Ruane, who spearheaded the Bring Them Back Home campaign for the prisoners, hailed as "very significant" talks last night between Bertie Ahern and President Alvaro Uribe on the case.
Mr Ahern met President Uribe at a meeting during a summit of EU and South American leaders in Mexico.
It is understood Mr Uribe vowed to raise with legal and constitutional authorities in Colombia about how the legal process could be speeded up.
Last month, a Colombian judge acquitted Niall Connolly, James Monaghan and Martin McCauley on charges of training Marxist rebels.
However, they have been ordered to remain in the country while Colombian prosecutors appeal the decision.
The three men were convicted of travelling to the country on false passports.
