Juan Emilio Cheyre


Juan Emilio Cheyre

Juan Emilio Cheyre Espinoza (born October 10 1947) is a retired Chilean Army General. He was Commander-in-Chief of the Chilean Army from 2002 to 2006. As Commander-in-Chief he attempted to distance the Army from former dictator General Augusto Pinochet, and condemned the human rights abuses of Pinochet's dictatorship.

In 2003, Cheyre as Commander-in-Chief of the Army issued an historically relevant document titled "Chilean Army: End of a Vision," in which he stated that the military would "never again" subvert democracy in Chile.
