Chilean Army Chief Resigns Amid Investigation

"The recognition and condemnation that the army has made of its institutional responsibility for human rights violations during the dictatorship is valuable for Chile," he stressed.

"Historic step to really move forward. We will continue working for justice, reparation. So that never again," the future president wrote on his Twitter account.

For her part, the next defense minister, Maya Fernández, indicated that "the wounds of the dictatorship will not heal without truth, justice and reparation."

"The recognition of human rights violations is a necessary act to heal the soul of Chile and to finally be able to look ahead to the future."

Among the repressive acts assumed by the document is the so-called Caravan of Death, which toured the country during the dictatorship and murdered and made opponents disappear, "one of the most reprehensible episodes."

The report signed by retired general Ricardo Martínez - who resigned from the command in chief of the Army after being summoned to testify as accused by a member of Milicogate - repudiates various acts committed by the military during the dictatorship.

For example, it points out that the "Caravan of Death" - an Army delegation that toured the country during the dictatorship, and that murdered and disappeared opponents - led by General Sergio Arellano Stark was "one of the most reprehensible episodes" of the period .
