CNA Rio: Solidarity Campaign for Mauricio Hernández Norambuena (Brazil)
Mauricio Hernández Norambuena is one of the most significant figures of opposition to the Chilean military dictatorship first and, later, to the “democratic” transition guided by the same dictator Pinochet (till his death). Mauricio Hernández Norambuena today is suffering the 5039th day of an inhuman detention regime, that is to say 95.08 times what Washington Olivetto, the victim of the offence for which Mauricio is jailed, suffered during his kidnapping.
In 1976, during the dictatorship, Mauricio was a Communist Party militant, while in 1983 he was one of the founders of the Manuel Rodríguez Patriotic Front (FPMR), an organization born as the military organization of the Communist Party that later developed its own autonomy to fight and defeat the dictatorship on the military level.
Mauricio was condemned many times in Chile as intellectual and material author of many actions developed by his own organization and he was arrested in 1993. Freed from prison in 1996 thanks to an operation of his organization, he was arrested in 2002 in Brasil for the kidnapping of a company manager and he was condemned to 30 years of prison.
Since 5 years, Mauricio Hernández Norambuena has been suffering an inhuman prison regime that violates all the “Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners”, adopted by the First Congress of the United Nations about the Prevention of Crime and the Treatment of Offenders:
– A cell 3×2 meters, bathroom included.
– Two hours a day in a tightened courtyard.
– Visits just of his brothers and sisters, for 3 hours a month.
– No access to newspapers, TV, radios, etc..
– Just a book a week.
– No contact with other prisoners.
The aim of this website is to make known his situation, denounce the Human Rights violation promoted by the Brasilian Government, and speed up the Brasilian Authorities to a humanitarian act of repatriating Mauricio Hernández Norambuena to Chile, (the Chilean Government has already presented an extradition request to the Brasilian Authorities).
The Brasilian Government in 2002 destroyed the lager of the Carandiru (on 2nd of October in 1992, 111 prisoners were killed by its security forces) and replaced it with many modern prisons where the physical torture is replaced by psychological torture. Stop the Human Rights violations of the Brasilian Government Now !!!
Write to Mauricio Hernández Norambuena NOW !
