Carabineros to be tried in civilian court

The Court of Appeals of Temuco, Chile, has ruled that 11 members of the Carabineros (the country's national police force) will be tried in civilian court rather than -- as they had requested -- in a military court, according to this account. The case will be heard in the Temuco Guarantee Court. The issue arose in the aftermath of Operation Hurricane, an intelligence operation that had targeted indigenous Mapuche leaders and went south.

This appears to be the second time the Temuco appellate court has refused to remit the matter to military jurisdiction.
