Chile: Section level action on the death penalty
Amnesty International is concerned about moves to extend the scope of the death penalty in Chile to include the murder of off-duty Carabineros (uniformed police officers). The Chilean Senate's Commission on Constitution, Legislation and Justice approved the text of a proposal to this effect in early January 1992; the approved text will now be sent to both Chambers of Congress for debate.This amendment was proposed by opposition senators in November 1991, following a widespread media campaign calling for stiffer measures to deal with an increase in violent crime.
