Chile - Annual report 2006

The Chilean media continues to be one of the freest in Latin America. However, the offices of the nationwide TV station TVN in Valparaíso were daubed with swastikas and death threats to its journalists on 15 July 2005 from neo-Nazis after a programme about them was broadcast. Fifteen years after the fall of the Pinochet dictatorship (1973-90), the authorities have still not recognised the rights of the Mapuche indigenous minority and their spokesman, Pedro Cayuqueo Millaqueo, editor of the magazine Azkintuwe, was sentenced on 2 June to spend 41 nights in prison. This was for not paying a fine imposed in 1999, when he was jailed for 61 days for occupying land that had been seized from the Mapuche. Some thought his magazine was the real target.
