In 2009, Alejandro Madrid called for an investigation into the death of former President Eduard Frei Montalva as a murder. Almost exactly ten years later, and after 19 years, the judge's investigation has ratified this afternoon – in a historical reality – the character of death: it was a crime.
The 811 pages of the Madrid judgment refer to the third party liability that would affect during Frei Montalva's internment at the Santa Maria clinic after complications due to the hernia surgery at rest. In this sense, his judgment states that Frei Montalva would be murdered, in line with the attitude that Carmen's daughter maintains for years, who claims the case is magnic.
The story, published on the Justice website, states that "the judge sentenced his doctor, Patricia Silva Garína, to an effective sentence of 10 years in prison, to his minimum responsibility for the perpetrators of the crime of killing, was approved in Article 391, Number 2 of the Criminal Code. Becerra Arancibia (CNI's personal driver and CNI informant) and Raúl Lillo Gutiérrez (CNI civilian) sentenced to a minimum of seven years' imprisonment as co-perpetrators of the same crime. "
The text adds that "Madrid has sentenced Pedro Valdivio Soto to an effective five-year prison sentence to the maximum extent of his responsibility for co-perpetrators of the same facts and to sociologists Helmar Rosenberg Gómez and Sergio González Bombardiar for three years of junior high school jail sentence accessories, punishment, which must be met by conditional assignment.
In the investigation, he pointed to a role that would play the people's trust in Frei Montalva and were in key positions in the iron circle.
The death of Frei Montalva has been the subject of a decade of suspicion. The presence of chemicals in other cases related to the military intelligence action has caused the ex-senator Carmen Frei's own family, formerly of his former president, particularly his daughter, to urge to investigate whether the sudden deterioration of the DC leader being a routine operation, also listened to third party intervention.
Frei Montalva, the president between 1964 and 1970 and the symbolic figure of Christian Democracy at the time of his death in January 1982, was the most visible face of the opposition to the Augusto Pinochet regime.
At the time of his death, Frei Montalva, in 1980, came to campaign for the opposition who first joined the poll "No" in the plebiscite, which tried to ratify the constitution created by the regime, and to give August Pinochet eight years. From this campaign, the most symbolic memory is "Caupolicanazo," an act in Santiago's historic theater with the chief speaker of the former president.
His role was not casual. Despite being a sincere opponent of Salvador Allende and thus facing collectives that make up the people's unity, his ascendant as one of the most prominent Chilean politicians of the 20th century placed him as a natural reference at a time when political groups were also forbidden.
The role of the family
The Frei family played a key role in the process, although there are differences between children in how to deal with scenarios, especially in recent years.
One of the last disputes, for example, occurred last August, when Sebastian Piñera named Luisa Castillo as a representative of the assistance networks because one of the questions investigated by Madrid during the investigation was his role in the episode in which he was found, an unknown autopsy at a former president whose documentation was in the clinical hospital of the Catholic University where Castillo was headed.
At that moment, the family accused the doctor, who freed Madrid from responsibility, to hide the message he was holding, which subsequently caused the DC blockade for any proceedings in his capacity as assistant secretary. , Eduardo Frei Ruiz-Tagle, however, retained an important role as Ambassador of the Government in the Asia-Pacific region, and even supported the governmental initiatives his sister Carmen touched upon.
