Torture And Child Sex Abuse In Chile Cult

6 years ago|885 views
State sponsored torture, child sex abuse, nazi's and evangelical preachers - sick Chile cult shocks the world.

This village in central Chile was for 40 years the domain of the notorious "Colonia Dignidad" cult, scene of multiple child sex abuse convictions.

Now witnesses are saying the sick sect was also used as a torture centre by the Chilean government under the Pinochet dictatorship.

Adriana Borquez says she was held against her will and tortured in the cult commune during 1975.

[Adriana Borquez, Torture Victim]:
"We want justice. There are detainees who were disappeared in Colonia Dignidad. There are graves of the people they killed, there are torture victims, there are hundreds of torture victims there."

In January this year 16 cult leaders were sentenced for child sex abuse crimes, following the conviction of the cult's leader back in 2006.

Political victims now want recognition that the closed society was also used by the Pinochet regime to torture dissidents.

[Adriana Borquez, Torture Victim]:
"We were detained in 1975. I came into exile in 1976 and since then not one day has passed that I have not worked for human rights and justice."

The secretive sect was established in 1961 by former nazi turned evangelical preacher Paul Schaefer.

Schaefer died in prison in 2010 after being convicted of over 20 child sex abuse cases.
