Mexico City - In a telephone interview from San Antonio, Manuel Araya (1946 ) criticizes the lifetime administration of Juan Agustín Figueroa : " The Neruda Foundation betrays the poet commercial gain , plus they have the nerve to say ' no money ' to pay salaries , so they can dismiss workers unfairly Guild Isla Negra , La Chascona and La Sebastiana . How long will the government of Chile to the directors of the Foundation are stealing the legacy of Neruda? . " The driver of the reviewer poet " Pablo Neruda should not be buried in Isla Negra by profit making Foundation. We hope that the investigations conclude , personally I would like Neruda is buried in Temuco, or in Parral, or inherited Quinta Michoacán to the Communist Party. Neruda asked to be buried beside the Sea of Isla Negra , but currently is not satisfied with his last wishes, the Foundation is a vile business , it would be unfair to return Neruda Isla Negra " .
MC - . Don Manuel , toxicology tests detected the drug dipyrone , but found no poison, and heavy metals. Was the complaint will insist Neruda 's murder ? MA - . ? Yeah, Pablo Neruda was not evicted on September 23, 1973 , we left him alone in the clinic when we went to Isla Negra Matilde Urrutia , do you think we would have left if I was dying , why injected Neruda when nobody cared what ? , Dr. Sergio Draper says that on September 23 dipyrone injected Neruda to ease the pain , but dipyrone should not be injected in the stomach, there is the error of the doctors, Neruda died after injection of dipyrone , not just my word , El Mercurio published September 24, 1974 ( " Neruda died last night of a heart attack victim that caused the death ... 22.30 Chilean poet had been hospitalized in serious condition at the clinic said on Saturday, 22 . Subsequently a result suffered a shock after having been injected since deepened its severity "). Neruda did not die of cachexia , died because the injection inoculated on September 23 , a few hours it went to Mexico .
MC - . Drug What took Neruda? MA - . Pills for phlebitis , I also know who received radiotherapy for prostate cancer control , but I do not remember that he had been prescribed injections.
MC - . " El Mercurio " and " Counter " published the sketch of Dr. Price ( 30/12/2013 ), but " The Press " reported that the doctor on duty was Carlos Macera ( 24/09/1973 ) . Who was responsible for the Santa Maria Clinic ? MA - . Far as I know , an army colonel was assigned to the Santa Maria Clinic. Lawyers Eduardo Contreras and Rodolfo Reyes are investigating the background of the staff of the Santa Maria Clinic who worked 11 to September 23, 1973 , even though the clinic refuses to provide medical records of Neruda and the list of all staff , lawyers have advanced presenting several names of the doctors and nurses of the Santa Maria Clinic. It remains to clarify who was Dr. Price, by Sergio Draper was the last to see alive to Neruda, the strange thing is that there is no record of " Dr. Price" in The Chilean Medical Association .
MC - . Which measures are needed? MA - . New forensic examinations in Switzerland and Austria , the lawyer Eduardo Contreras filed application , the judge lack Mario Chariot ordered new studies of European laboratories . We are on track , the Minister Mario we Chariot has been ported to the height.
MC - . ? After the forensic investigation poet bones return to Isla Negra , but the Union of Workers of the Foundation asked the lawyer Rodolfo Reyes is not buried Neruda in Isla Negra , what do you think , ? Support the application? MA - . Pablo Neruda should not be buried in Isla Negra by profit making Foundation have talked with Rodolfo Reyes, Neruda 's family is considering the request of the Union of Workers of the Foundation. We hope that the investigations conclude , personally I would like Neruda is buried in Temuco, or in Parral, or inherited Quinta Michoacán to the Communist Party. Neruda asked to be buried next to the sea in Isla Negra , but currently is not satisfied with his last wishes, the Foundation is a vile business would not be fair to return to Isla Negra , Neruda would not agree with what the crooks Foundation . The Reyes family has the last word on Neruda 's funeral , I will respect their choices.
. MC - The director of the Neruda Foundation insists on defending copyright investment firm Ricardo Claro: "It is an absurd criticism from a business perspective. It's like criticizing the Nobel Prize because Alfred Nobel invented dynamite " ( Politikien , 17/11/2013 ) . What do you think at such a comparison? MA - . Fernando Sáez da face by Juan Agustín Figueroa , are a pair of thieves. Neruda 's will clearly states that the Foundation should be administered by the rector of the University of Chile, by the Rector of the Catholic University , by the chancellor of the State Technical University (USACH ) and the chairmen of the Single Central workers ( CUT) and the Society of Writers ( SECH ) . We must remember that the September 11, 1973 begin building Cantalao would be a home for writers , was the legacy of Neruda to Chile , but everything has been stolen , Juan Agustín Figueroa and company do business with unscrupulous people , as the corrupt businessman of " Hotel Neruda " , or Pinochet Ricardo Claro , Neruda 's legacy does not belong to Juan Agustín Figueroa, also belonged to Ricardo Claro. The Neruda Foundation betrays the poet commercial gain , plus they have the nerve to say that " no money " to pay the salaries and can dismiss workers unfairly Guild Isla Negra , La Chascona and La Sebastiana . How long will the government of Chile to the directors of the Foundation are stealing the legacy of Neruda?
MC - . Who defends the legacy of Neruda? MA - . The Reyes family, lawyer Rodolfo Reyes continues to defend the name of Neruda in court, because the Foundation authorized the granting of " Neruda Name " for a hotel chain .
MC - . The Communist Party is focused on the investigation of the murder of Neruda, but it seems they are leaving only the lawyer Rodolfo Reyes to defend the legacy of Neruda. Have you talked with CP leaders about the possibility of recovering the testamentary will Neruda? MA - . 'll Ask the Communist Party to defend the legacy of Neruda, can not forget all he did for the Communist Party Neruda , Neruda was a worthy activist , senator , member of the Central Committee , ambassador and presidential candidate of the PC. Neruda was a communist , his legacy rests with the people, the working class and poets . I understand that the lawyer Eduardo Contreras could not take charge of this case , because it has so many pending court cases , did a great job in the complaint for the murder of Neruda. I hope the communist lawyer Pedro Pina is made to study the will of Neruda and Matilde Urrutia testament to see how they can enforce statutes Cantalao .
MC - . Neruda The last text was the presentation of the Carrillo Gil Collection , but not opened . The poet and diplomat Rafael Vargas Carrillo Gil Collection bring to Chile 40 years later, would you be interested in going to the inauguration ? MA - . Certainly, I have the dream of visiting Mexico for talks with Ambassador Gonzalo Martínez Corbalá and President Luis Echeverría . In 1973 the government of Mexico provided funding for the construction of Cantalao , President Echeverría was determined to rescue Pablo Neruda , from Mexico carry out his plans to fight the dictatorship, but he was murdered. It will be very exciting to see the paintings of the Mexican muralists in Chile, which had inaugurated the exhibition 40 years ago.
MC - . Finally , was it worth waiting 40 years to hear the truth about the death of Neruda? MA - . Yeah, at first no one paid attention to me , 40 years after everyone returned to my complaint, I have even threatened and attacked my home, but I do not fear death. We are very close to the truth about the murder of Pablo Neruda.
