The Chilean justice system approved the extradition request for Facundo Jones Huala


It was decided by the Valdivia Court of Appeals. Now, the Chilean Foreign Ministry must send the request to Argentina.

The Valdivia Court of Appeals approved this Tuesday the extradition request for

Facundo Jones Huala

, the head of the Mapuche Ancestral Resistance detained in El Bolsón ten days ago.

The Court granted a request from the Río Bueno Local Prosecutor's Office, which this week

had submitted the extradition request

together with the activist's background.

Jones Huala, born in Argentina, was sentenced to 9 years in prison in Chile for illegally carrying a handcrafted firearm and for the crime of arson, after the attack on the Pisu Pisué farm in 2013 in the town of Río Bueno.

Captured, he began to serve his sentence in the Temuco prison, but in January 2022 the Court of Appeals of that city granted him probation.

Jones Huala was released from jail and fled to Argentina violating probation.

Weeks later, the Chilean Supreme Court reversed the activist's probation.

The order of the Court of Appeals will be sent to the Foreign Ministry of Chile.

From there, the extradition request will be sent to the Argentine Foreign Ministry, from where it will be transferred to an Argentine judge who must decide whether to accept the extradition of Jones Huala, in a very rare process.
