JUSTICE FOR DANIEL FIGUEROA
On December 2002, in Chile,
Daniel Figueroa was kidnapped and torn into pieces. Figueroa
denounced corruption of then Chile President Ricardo Lagos
and his men.
Please ask President Sebastián Piñera to develop
the investigation, clarify this crime, and punish the perpetrators,
the masterminds and those who covered up the crime, between
them, one of Piñera’s cabinet ministers.
The Figueroa’s Case was denounced before
the Inter American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) who
labelled it “Petition P-1849-1”.
Many important Chile government and opposition politicians
as well as judges are involved in the cover up of this crime.
Several ministers and high ranking authorities of President
Lagos government (2000-2006) were condemned by corruption
thanks to the quartered Figueroa, former authority of the
University of Chile, who left hundreds of documents and his
own personal computer to be made public in case something
might happen to him.
Ricardo Lagos himself spared being jailed on those corruption
charges because he got an illegal judgment of a Chilean high
court stating that his crimes, in spite of being committed
by him, had already prescribed.
During close to 10 years I have asked for
justice for Figueroa, with whom I never had any relation at
all. It’s time to get justice. We must not wait one
There are four reasons why there is a need
of justice for Daniel Figueroa:
1. Because several Human Rights were violated
when government’s sicarios kidnapped, tortured, slaughtered
and later delivered a few of Figueroa’s bones and, close
to them, his identification document, his personal key ring,
and the clothes he was wearing the day when he was kidnapped.
The sicarios left Daniel’s personal belongings close
to a few of his bones with the purpose of letting know to
every possible whistle blower that Ricardo Lagos’s men
will allow nobody to speak.
2. Because this was a Crime Against Humanity,
since it was the powerful and uncontested government of President
Ricardo Lagos who kidnapped, tortured and quartered an undefended
lone individual who was believed to be a threat for Lagos’s
men who already faced corruption charges and who aimed both
to silence Figueroa and to use his slaughtering as a demonstration
of their power and ruthlessness and of their determination
to keep sacking the nation, which in fact they did.
3. Because Figueroa’s spouse and his
then little daughters deserve justice and public recognition
for their husband and father, peace for their souls and a
compensation for all the suffering they have withstood.
4. Because several top Chilean political and
media leaders and high court judges are involved in a gang
aimed at the cover up of Figueroa’s assassination. This
gang has made and currently makes a huge damage to Chilean
politics, since this group of powerful accomplices grant immunity
to themselves and to many other white collar criminals that
claim the right to be given a tolerance similar to the one
enjoyed by the gang who slaughtered Figueroa’s and handles
the cover up.
It is of the outmost importance that Figueroa
assassination be qualified as a “Crime Against Humanity”,
which would made it “imprescriptible”. This means
that its perpetrators and masterminds may be prosecuted whenever
it might be, without consideration on how long ago this crime
