Chile: 33 Pinochet agents jailed for communist deaths

Friday 24th March 2017

CHILE’S Supreme Court jailed 33 intelligence agents of the Augusto Pinochet dictatorship on Wednesday for the 1987 murder of five communist resistance fighters.

In the longest sentences handed down in a human rights case, former National Information Centre chief General Hugo Salas Wenzel and Major Alvaro Corbalan Castilla both received 15 years.

They were already serving time for other crimes.

Another 21 were sentenced to 10 years and the rest to a minimum of five years.

The five victims were members of the Manuel Rodriguez Patriotic Front, the military wing of the Communist Party.

They were abducted in revenge for the Front’s kidnapping of an army officer in 1987 and thrown into the sea from a helicopter.

The families of Julian Pena Maltes, Alejandro Pinochet Arenas, Manuel Sepulveda Sanchez, Gonzalo Fuenzalida Navarrete and Julio Munoz Otarola will also receive compensation equivalent to £460,000.
