Amnesty International launches annual report as new voting registration digs at old wounds.
Amnesty International Chile made public its 2012 Annual Report on Human Rights this Thursday, putting a special emphasis on justice for victims of human rights atrocities committed during the military dictatorship that ruled the country from 1973-1990. The report was launched in the midst of a recently rekindled national debate over the legal status of forcibly disappeared persons during that period. There were over 3,000 cases of forced disappearances over Chile’s 17-year dictatorship. Photo by Montecruz Foto/flickr.Login to read more.
