Amnesty International charged that Chile continues to accept the systematic use of torture, notable of those under arrest, and it called for an independent inquiry into the fate of hundreds of missing people. "The way that investigations...have been handled by the authorities indicates that torture is condoned at the highest levels of Chilean government," a representative of the rights group, Claudine Rey, told the U.N. Human Rights Commission in Geneva. In another, formal report, Amnesty indicted Haiti for arbitrary arrests, mistreatment of prisoners and even killings.
