General on the lam

Retired Chilean army general Raúl Iturriaga is still on the lam. In response, the army is now cutting off the services it provided for other officers currently serving sentences. This ranges from cable TV to medication. I had also not known that the army took 0.23% of the salaries of active duty officers to pay for the defense of human rights cases, but now that is going to be made voluntary.

This is a new and entirely welcome attitude of the army leadership, which is making the whole affair backfire for Iturriaga.
