Given the increase in KIDNAPPING cases: the Chilean Senate approves increased penalties for this crime

The Senate of the Republic of Chile unanimously approved a project that aggravates the penalties for the crime of kidnapping in the country. The initiative establishes that the crime will be punished with imprisonment ranging from 5 years and 1 day to 15 years, and will be increased to life imprisonment when, in addition, homicide, rape or very serious injuries are committed.

The project also contemplates the amendment that reduces the duration of confinement or detention from 48 hours to 24 hours. However, some senators expressed their doubts about this measure, pointing out that it could put the lives of the victims at risk if the required money is not collected within that period.
