Judicial action against Raul Castro planned in Chile

http://gdb.martinoticias.org/411B664C-6312-4B92-95E3-510F2731412B_w640_r1_s_cx0_cy11_cw0.jpgAccording to the internet site "biobiochile.cl," Chilean party officials of the Independent Democratic Union (UDI) and National Renovation (RN) are looking into either filing judicial action against Raul Castro or ordering him to answer questions when he visits Chile at the end of January.

Havana has already confirmed the attendance of Castro at the summit between the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) and the European Union (EU), which will take place on January 26 through the 28th.

During the summit, Chilean president Sebastian Piñera will handover the pro tempore presidency of CELAC to Raul Castro.

The judicial action planned by the UDI and the RN are based on the alleged connections between the Cuban leader and the assassination of Jaime Guzman, the founder of UDI.

The Secretary Generals of both parties, parliament members Jose Antonio Kast (UDI) and Mario Desbordes (RN), said they were worried and confused by the Castro visit.

Kast explained to the press that the intention was to bring Raul Castro in for questioning over his suspected connections with the Manuel Rodriguez Patriotic Front and their assassination of senator Jaime Guzman in 1991.

During the Sixth Ibero-American Summit of Chiefs of State, held in Chile in 1996, the UDI also announced plans to take judicial action against leader Fidel Castro although they never went through with it.

By his part, Desbordes referred to the contradictory act of the Castro regime prohibiting Rosa Maria Paya, the daughter of the late opposition leader Oswaldo Paya, from traveling to Chile to participate in a university graduate course while he "freely comes here as a dictator."

Rosa Maria was hoping to attend a seminar on political theory and public works at the Miguel de Cervantes University, which is connected to the Christian Democracy group through its university rector Gutenberg Martinez, who has already criticized the decision by Havana to not allow the young woman to leave the country.
