President Boric emphasized that the missing persons search plan will work together with the organizations of relatives of the victims.
“49 years ago these walls witnessed a serene firmness with which a group of Chilean men and women tried to defend democratic institutions, while being overwhelmed by force of arms,” said the head of state, recalling the coup Allende suffered for part of Pinochet.
