Ex-lieutenant found liable for Victor Jara slaying | CounterVortex


Ex-lieutenant found liable for Victor Jara slaying | CounterVortex - C. Dixon Osburn of the Center for Justice and Accountability, which helped prosecute the case, said: “We believe that perpetrators of the worst human rights crimes should be held to account, no matter how long it takes or where they try to hide. We must strive for a world where all can live freely, unafraid to speak up or sing out for equality, opportunity and responsibility. We hope that the verdict today provides some measure of justice and accountability for those who have fought so hard to see this day."

CJA legal director Kathy Roberts said: "This is the first trial seeking accountability for the death of Víctor Jara. The verdict in this case represents another signficant step to understanding what happened at Chile Stadium in the first days after the 1973 coup. I could not be more proud of the Jara family in this moment, and I thank them for their unwavering strength and perseverance." (CJA, The Guardian, NYT, June 27)
