France grants asylum to Chilian refugee Salamanca

France has granted asylum to Chilian political refugee Ricardo Palma Salamanca. Prosecuted in Chili for facts going back to 1991, Salamanca requested political asylum from France. OFPRA, the French Refugee Protection Agency, granted him asylum and acknowledged ‘Mister Salamanca did not benefit from a fair trial, as he had to confess under torture’, following the reasonning of Jean-Pierre Mignard and Philippe Azouaou.
