Pinochet-era Secret Police Chief’s Sentence Now 505 Years in Chilean Jail

The Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet’s former secret police chief, already serving 490 years in prison for human rights violations, was handed an additional 15-year sentence on Wednesday.
Manuel Contreras was the head of operations at the Dina intelligence service, which ran torture centres where hundreds of people were killed.
Chile’s supreme court sentenced Contreras to another 15 years for the murder of a husband and wife, Alejandro de la Barra and Ana Maria Puga, on December, 3, 1974.
