  • Description

    Seventy political prisoners from Brazil, released by the Brazilian military government in exchange for kidnapped Swiss Ambassador Giovanni Bucher, have arrived in Santiago.

    Some of the prisoners called for the overthrow of the regime of President Emilio Garrastazu Medici in Brazil. At first the Chilean police did not intervene. Later they told the prisoners that they could not make political declarations which might damage relations between Chile and Brazil.

    Of the 70 prisoners, 68 are Brazilians. They have been exiled by Presidential decree. The other two prisoners have been declared deported from Brazil.
