Montevideo, Nov 7 (EFE) .- The ex-guerrilla Tupamaro Héctor Amodio Pérez will sue the Uruguayan State for about $ 300,000 for "undue prison" and "moral damages", after being imprisoned Almost a year while the Justice of that country investigated him, his lawyer, Andrés Ojeda, told Efe today.
In total, it was 360 days that the ex-guerrilla was imprisoned while the Justice of that country was investigating him for an alleged offense of deprivation of liberty that was acquitted last August.
According to Ojeda, the lawsuit will start from next December 13 and the The figure is divided into two parts: $ 122,000 corresponding to undue prison and the rest, $ 178,000, to moral damages.
The ex-guerrilla Tupamaro returned to Uruguay in August of 2015 after 42 years in Spain to present a book about the National Liberation Movement-Tupamaros (MLN-T), guerrilla that integrated and with which he fought in Uruguay to governments Constitutions and the Civic Military Dictatorship (1973-1985).
On his return, he received two denunciations for his alleged complicity with the military that took power after the coup d'état in 1973 in the detention and torture of persons in the prelude to the dictatorship and that persisted during the same.
He was tried with prison on September 14, 2015 as alleged perpetrator responsible for "repeated crimes of deprivation of liberty especially aggravated."
One year later, on September 9, 2016, the Court of Appeals of Uruguay decided to revoke the ruling and decree the release of Amodio.
However, prosecutor Llorente requested an "appeal of cassation" to study the ruling of the Court and define whether the conduct of Amodio it qualified as a crime against humanity, with which the prescription could not be applied.
This last request was the one that the SCJ ended up rejecting.
In Amodio's opinion, the denunciations arose motivated by a question of "revenge" MLN-T.
Amodio is considered a traitor by former members of the MLN-T, among which is the former president of Uruguay José Mujica (2010-2015), because the military with whom he supposedly collaborated granted him a safe-conduct and a passport to leave the country with the name of Walter Correa change of collaboration in 1973.
