Judge Juan Guzmán, RIP

Juan Guzmán Tapia, the courageous Chilean judge who prosecuted Augusto Pinochet for the notorious Caravan of Death and other human rights crimes, died on January 22. He was 81. My last blog post was about him, and here’s a link to a piece he wrote several years ago for Le Monde Diplomatique about why Chile needs a new constitution to replace the one imposed in 1980 under the dictatorship: https://www.lemondediplomatique.cl/por-que-es-necesaria-una-nueva-constitucion-por-juan-guzman-tapia.html
