SPANISH FORENSIC AND DNA EXPERT LLORENTE TALKS TO MEDIA.
Spanish forensic and DNA expert Jose Antonio Llorente talks to the
media at the Medical Legal Service (morgue) in Santiago, January 15,
2002. Llorente pointed out that Chile has the most advanced laboratory
in Latin America with an 80 percent success rate for identifying human
remains through DNA methods. Chile has obtained that expertise from
years of identifying the victims of General Augusto Pinochet's
1973-1990 dictatorship, during which over 1,000 people disappeared.
