Chile. After a series of appeals mathematics professor Roberto Campos, who was imprisoned after hitting a turnstile on October 17, during the days of mass evasions before the revolt, finally managed to get out on the streets on December 23.

The Court of Appeals of San Miguel, modified the pre-trial detention into nighttime house arrest and a weekly signature for Roberto, who is charged with damages and the state’s domestic security law. Roberto is still awaiting trial.
When Roberto came out of prison, he pointed out with the clarity of his experience, a feeling that was completely against prison: “It’s terrible to have your freedom taken away from you in such an inopportune way. I don’t wish this place to anyone, not even the murderer who killed my father when I was five years old. I don’t even wish him that many days in prison, because this place is disgusting.”
Finally he pointed out to the media: “A scapegoat, that’s what I was (….) it’s terrible to be in here. This punishment was excessive. I would like to thank many people who, without knowing me, supported me”.
