U.S. to Deliver Final Batch of Declassified Docs on Letelier Assassination

WASHINGTON – The United States on Friday will deliver to Chile a final batch of declassified documents on the Sept. 21, 1976, assassination in Washington of Orlando Letelier, a leading foreign-based critic of the then-dictatorship headed by Gen. Augusto Pinochet, the State Department said.

During Friday’s ceremony at the Sheridan Circle in Washington, where Letelier and his American aide Ronni Moffitt were killed by a car bomb, Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources Heather Higginbottom will deliver the last tranche of records related to the assassinations.

Chilean President Michelle Bachelet and the four children of Letelier, who served as foreign minister under the 1970-1973 administration of leftist head of state Salvador Allende, will attend the ceremony.

Pinochet toppled Allende, who died on the day of the Sept. 11, 1973 coup, and ruled Chile until 1990.

Pinochet died in 2006.
