In September 1973, days after the coup d'état, 19 workers of a paper company disappeared after being arrested for their participation in the labor union or in left parties. 40 years later a policeman broke the pact of silence, revealing the participation of the private company CMPC in the death of these 19 men. Today the case remains open.
