The Chilean government appealed the release of Facundo Jones Huala: “It did not measure the damage done”

The Government of Chile filed an appeal for the justice of that country to revoke the parole granted to the self-styled Mapuche leader Facundo Jones Huala, who was serving a sentence for several crimes committed in trans-Andean lands.

The decision of the president’s administration Sebastian Pinera had been advanced by his Undersecretary of the Interior, Juan Francisco Galli, who considered that the benefit to which the detainee agreed “goes exactly in the opposite direction” of what citizenship demands.

“The convicted person does not meet the legal and regulatory requirements to grant them the benefit of parole”, maintained the lawyers of the Ministry of the Interior and Public Security of the neighboring country in the text that they presented on Saturday.

In this sense, the trans-Andean authorities requested that “the appealed resolution be revoked and that the amparo be rejected” in favor of Jones Huala, “since there is no illegal or arbitrary act in the contested resolution of the Parole Commission.”

Among the arguments offered by the Chilean government to request that the prisoner’s parole be revoked, it was pointed out that the Mapuche leader “he has never recognized the crime committed” nor “has he measured the damage done”, and therefore “his behavior in a sustained manner is refractory to the values ​​of respect for the rights of people.”

Facundo Jones Huala, a native of Argentina and leader of the group Mapuche Ancestral Resistance (RAM), was released on parole last Friday afternoon, after the Chilean Justice accepted an injunction presented by his lawyers.

In the trans-Andean country he was serving a sentence nine years in prison for having participated in the burning of a property in 2013 and had added another sentence to three years in prison for possession of a handmade firearm.

The mother of the accused herself had anticipated hours before that her son would be released and specified: “Afterwards it will be processed so that he can cross to this side of the mountain range.” However, for the moment he will not be able to return to Argentina because he must make another judicial presentation that is accepted by the Chilean courts.

In Patagonia they are alert to this possibility, because in one of his last appearances through communiqués he wrote from prison, the RAM leader called “avenge the death of Elías Garay”, the member of the Lof Quemquentreu community who was shot dead last November in the Cuesta del Ternero area, between El Bolsón and Bariloche.

After leaving the Temuco prison where he was being held, Huala expressed his gratitude to the “peñis” and vindicated “the revolutionary Mapuche organizations, all the Mapuche revolutionary resistance communities and my organization Resistencia Ancestral Mapuche and the Puelmapu Mapuche movement.” .

In brief contact with the press in the neighboring country, he said that “The political violence of the State has to continue on the path of self-defense against the peñis and sabotage against large companies, but not unnecessary and excessive violence among us, the Mapuche people and the poor.”

“There is only one enemy, big transnational capital, imperialism and the oligarchy, and the oppressive states in service of all these national and foreign bourgeoisies. They are the enemy,” he said.

And he added: “It is not the poor winca, it is not the small farmers, it is the forestry, mining, oil and hydroelectric companies, we have to continue advancing on that path until we free the Mapuche people.”

The opposition leadership in Argentina also expressed concern about the release of Jones Huala, noting that he was responsible for “exercising extreme violence” in Patagonia and heads a group that “does not recognize the mechanisms of the rule of law and isolated from the Mapuche people”.
