The regional public prosecutor of Valparaíso, Claudia Perivancich, which has in its hands the case SQM, decided to file a complaint against Ministers of the Court of appeals of Santiago that by 19 votes to 9 r echazaron obtain the Senator Jorge Pizarro DC.
The move of the Prosecutor outraged to the defence of the parliamentarian Falangist. In a statement, lawyer Cristóbal Bonacic, said that «the remedy of complaint reflects the ignorance of the countless records collected by more than three years of research that leave evidence in the absence of any offence».
