Chile ordered to pay £20,000 to compensate Pinochet torture victim 

Chile were ordered to pay out £20,000 to compensate a Pinochet torture victim. In 1993, García Lucero’s first made a complaint about the torture he suffered, yet it didn’t start getting investigated until 2011, 16 years later.. The money he was given in compensation was for the torture he suffered but not only that, he was also given extra as “excessive delay” in opening an investigation for his case.
