Chilean Party to Protest Visit by Raul CastroJanuary 25, 2013 | | Print |
HAVANA TIMES — Chile’s Independent Democratic Union (UDI) announced that it will carry out “actions” against Raul Castro for supposedly harboring in Cuba the murders of Jaime Guzman, the ideologue of the Pinochet dictatorship, reported the Cubaencuentro website.
Senator Guzman was shot and killed by members of the Manuel Rodriguez Patriotic Front in 1991, in Santiago de Chile, while the UDI maintains that several people suspected of involvement in the crime are currently living on the island.
For his part, Minister Mario Charroza, the crime investigator for the senator, said Monday that the diplomatic immunity enjoyed by the Cuban president will protect him from any legal actions, reported by El Mercurio of Chile.
Castro will visit the South American nation this weekend to attend the Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean of States (CELAC) and the European Union. He will also be granted the rotating presidency of CELAC from Chilean president Sebastian Piñera.
