“A Florida jury on Monday found a former Chilean army officer liable for the 1973 torture and murder of the folk singer and political activist Victor Jara, awarding $28m in damages to his widow and daughters in one of the biggest and most significant legal human rights victories against a foreign war criminal in a US courtroom.”  — The Guardian 27 June 2016

and h/t Joe Shikspack at c99)

The killer is a cook who won’t ever pay any noticeable fraction of the $28M, but there’s always a chance the court will extradite him to Chile as requested. Small chance I know.
