„Is it true what Contreras testified before the courts, that the president of the junta and later the president of the Republic was the direct head of DINA?
I don't remember, but it is not true. It is not true and if it was, I don't remember. Contreras liked to cajole, wrap around his boss. Contreras gave the orders. It was he who managed the institution.“

„I have lived with my conscience and my own memories for over quarter of a century since the events of 1973.… These are not easy reflections for me.

The Chambers will remain in recess until further orders. That is all.“
