Chile’s Ex-President Frei Undergoes Emergency Surgery

SANTIAGO – Chilean former President Eduardo Frei Ruiz-Tagle underwent successful emergency surgery Monday at a clinic in Santiago, a lawmaker said.

The procedure “was a success,” legislator Jorge Tarud told reporters at the medical center, without offering any details on the nature of the emergency or the operation.

Frei Ruiz-Tagle, 75, was conscious and accompanied by family and friends, including people who served in his 1994-2000 administration, the lawmaker said.

Within minutes of the news report about the former president’s illness, figures from Chile’s political class offered expressions of concern and solidarity.

Frei Ruiz-Tagle, whose late father, Eduardo Frei Montalva, was president from 1964-1970, was appointed in 2014 by incumbent head of state Michelle Bachelet as special ambassador for Asia-Pacific affairs.
