After more than 40 years, the first trial for the assassination of icon Victor Jara at Estadio Chile marked an extraordinary opportunity to build truth and memory, missing pieces in the Chilean transitional justice process. Almudena Bernabeu, who represented Jara’s family in the trial, discusses the case, hearing first-time testimony from the soldiers who participated in what happened at the stadium, and how after so many years, some justice was served.

Almudena Bernabeu is an attorney at the Center for Justice and Accountability and has worked in human rights and international law for over 20 years. In 2012, she was included in the 100 most influential people list published yearly by TIME.
