  • Description

    The widow of an assassinated minister in the government of former Chilean President Salvador Allende has returned to Chile to try and reclaim her husband's citizenship. Mrs. Isabel Morel Letelier will be pleading the case of her husband, Mr. Orlando Letelier, who died in 1976 when a bomb destroyed his car in Washington in the United States. Mr. Letelier, Foreign Minister in the government of the late President Allende, was one of those arrested and exiled after Allende's overthrow and death in the military coup of September 1973. He was stripped of his nationality in 1976 because of opposition to the military Junta of President Augusto Pinochet and died only days later when his car was bombed.
