Alarcón also said in his ruling that "The lawyer Cristian Inostroza told us what to say, and my eldest (Manuel) Valdivieso supported him.

Raúl Ávila said he was with a camera, and before this, the lawyer Inostroza told us that the version would be that no one was with cameras. "
The exuniformado accused of Mapuche Comuno's death accused the former head of Gope in the region, Major Manuel Valdivieso, to call his attention.
