Ramos-Horta applauds Pinochet's arrest

Paris, 18 October 1998 - "I join with the millions of people around the world - and the Chileans in particular - as they rejoice over the news of the detention of the Chilean dictator in London," said Jose Ramos-Horta, 1996 Nobel Peace Prize co-laureate upon receiving the information.

Mr. Ramos-Horta added that he applauded the courage of the Spanish judges whose relentless efforts will hopefully bring to justice the instigator and symbol of one of the most brutal repression of the 1970's.

"I hope that the detention of Pinochet, which will hopefully be followed by his trial, will send a clear signal to other dictators such as Suharto and to the Indonesian generals who have perpetrated war crimes and crimes against humanity that they will not escape with impunity."
