The Pinochet Effect – The impact of transnational litigation (Nov. 2013)
16 October 1998 marks one of the most important events in recent legal history: Augusto Pinochet was arrested in London. How did that come about? Two protagonists talk about the background: the Spanish lawyer Juan Garcés, who was also an advisor to Allende, worked towards Pinochet’s arrest on behalf of victims. Baltasar Garzón requested Pinochet’s extradition as the Spanish investigating judge. Moreover, Professor Sugarman will discuss the impact of this arrest on legal human rights work. Beatriz Brinkman, a political prisoner in 1986/86, will speak about the difficulties Chilean society faces until today in coming to terms with the dictatorship.
The film was shot during an ECCHR event on 30 September 2013, in cooperation with Parkafilm.
