Supreme Court confirms dangerousness of Héctor Llaitul and keeps him in preventive detention

The Supreme Court rejected the appeal filed by the defense of the leader of the Coordinadora Arauco Malleco (CAM), Héctor Llaitul, who had requested his “immediate release.”

In this way, the criminal chamber of the highest court confirmed the legality of the preventive detention that Llaitul has faced since it was formalized on August 25 for crimes of land usurpation, wood theft and threats to the authorities. This within the framework of the State Security Law (LSE).

In a unanimous decision, the ministers Jorge Dahm, María Teresa Letelier, Manuel Valderrama, Haroldo Brito and María Cristina Gajardo, determined that “the decision of the court of guarantee that ordered the precautionary measure of preventive detention to the protected Héctor Javier Llaitul Carrillanca, fully complies with legal substantiation requirements.

Likewise, they detailed that “the court, after referring to the evidentiary elements and analyzing the antecedents provided at the hearing, reasoned with all the antecedents provided that allowed it to justify the assumptions required by article 143 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, detailing all those that were useful to have as concurrent each one of the extremes of article 140 of the aforementioned legal body and explaining the reasons why the opposition formulated by the defense did not distort the background invoked by the applicant”.

“There is no warning in the proceeding of the Guarantee Judge that there is any illegality or unlawfulness that affects the personal freedom of the protected person,” they added. Thus, Llaitul must remain in preventive detention at the Biobío Penitentiary Compliance Center, in Concepción.
