Swedish Chileans React to Pinochet Death

Published måndag 11 december 2006 kl 11.42

The news of the death of Chile’s former dictator Augusto Pinochet has provoked strong reactions among the 40,000 Chileans living in Sweden.

After Pinochet’s 1973 coup, Chilean refugees were given asylum in Sweden. Many have remained after the return to democracy to their country.

Following the news of the former dictator’s death, hundreds of Chileans gathered for a spontaneous demonstration in downtown Stockholm. Most were pleased about Pinochet’s death, but their joy was tempered by regrets that he never had to stand trial for seizing power, and the thousands of deaths attributed to his regime.
