Pinochet dictatorship may have poisoned Pablo Neruda

The Communist Party of Chile (CCP) has requested the exhumation of the Communist poet Pablo Neruda, who died in 1973. The party says that the conditions of Neruda’s death have never been explained, and believes that the Chilean poet may have been poisoned by the Pinochet dictatorship.

Neruda was winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1973 and died just 12 days after General Augusto Pinochet gave the military coup and took power. The death certificate indicates that Pablo Neruda died of prostate cancer.

Recently, the poet’s former driver said he had received an injection shortly before suffering a heart attack in a hospital in the Chilean capital, where he was hospitalized. The request for exhumation of the remains of Neruda was sent to Justice in Chile by Eduardo Contreras, lawyer of the Communist Party.
