El Juez y el General

When in 1998, Chilean judge Juan Guzmán was assigned the first criminal cases against the country's ex-dictator, General Augusto Pinochet, no one expected much. Guzmán had supported Pinochet's 1973 coup, waged as an anti-Communist crusade, that left the democratically elected president, Salvador Allende, and thousands of others dead. The Judge and the General reveals one of the 20th century's most notorious episodes and tells a cautionary tale about violating human rights in the name of "higher ideals'.
