Baltasar Garzon


Spanish jurist, the judge who ordered the extradition of dictator Augusto Pinochet in order that Pinochet be judged in Spain for ordering the execution of many Spanish citizens who were living in Chile during his terrifying reign.

In 1998, the High Court in London ruled that Pinochet is immune from prosecution in British courts and they threw out the two Spanish arrest warrants. The ruling was based on the principle "that one sovereign state will not impugn another in relation to its sovereign acts."

On 11/25/1998, British Justice denied Pinochet his diplomatic immunity, so the deporting process to Spain may proceed. This is an important first event that paves the way for a future in which no dictator or war criminal may hide in exile. His extradition hearing began on 6/04/1999. In October 1999 a ruling passed that he could be extradited on torture charges.

Judge Garzon began to be publicly known in 1992 for his rulings and decisions.
