Exmandatario suggested that in 1982, the date of the death of Eduard Frei Montalva, Chile was "a country of confused mind". The declaration from Lagos happened after the failure of 811 parties dictated by Judge Alejandro Madrid on that day.
This afternoon, following a decision that confirmed the assassination of former President Eduardo Frei Montalva, exmandatario Ricardo Lagos appealed to the case and said what happened was "an unusual event in Chile's history."
In an interview with the former State Movement, Radio Cooperativa said that "Augusto Pinochet is the one charged with this murder." He added that "let's not forget that the military regime was not just an army, but many civilians were in high government offices in January 1982."
Lagos also said that Chile over these years "was a country of disturbed minds … (but) to do that?".
811 pages written by Judge Alejandro Madrid convicted six people for murder: Patricio Silva Garín; driver of the former president, Luis Becerra Arancibia; former civilian representative of CNI Raúl Lillo Gutiérrez; Dr. Pedro Valdivia Soto and sociologists Helmar Rosenberg Gómez and Sergio González Bombardiere.
