Former DINA agent and torturer Raul Pablo Quintana Salazar, is suing Chilean
investigative journalist and author Javier Rebolledo, for “calumny”.
Quintana, who is serving a prison sentence in Punta Peuco for crimes against humanity committed during the dictatorship era, is being represented in court by his daughter.
Rebolledo is a well-respected journalist and an author of several books which are heavily based on testimony. His research has uncovered the crimes of the torture and extermination centre Cuartel Simon Bolivar, as well as the early origins of DINA through accounts and analysis of the Tejas Verdes contingent.
Please help Rebolledo by signing this petition – it is unthinkable that a former torturer claims to have incurred damages while a journalist is facing a possible prison sentence merely for uncovering the truths about Pinochet’s violent dictatorship.
