Opus Dei And Pinochet


Sir, - Hugh O'Shaughnessy reports from Santiago (January 19th) that General Pinochet appointed many Opus Dei members to his cabinets. A number of comments suggest themselves, but I'll stick to the bare facts. I checked with the prelature's information office in Chile. They replied that they had never heard this report before, that it was completely false, that no member of Opus Dei was ever a member of Pinochet's cabinets. - Yours, etc., Paul Harman,
