International experts will reveal on Wednesday that the bacteria found in the remains of Chilean Nobel laureate Pablo Neruda was in his body at the time of death, which would prove that he was poisoned 12 days after the 1973 military coup, his family told EFE in an exclusive interview.
We now know that the 'clostridium botulinum' should not have been in Neruda's skeleton. What does this mean? That Neruda was murdered, there was intervention in 1973 by state agents, said Rodolfo Reyes, the poet's nephew.
The bacterium, responsible for botulism, was found in 2017 in one of Neruda's molars by another panel of experts, who dismissed the dictatorship's version and rejected that the cause of death was the advanced prostate cancer that afflicted him since 1969.

They poisoned him alright...Feb 13th, 2023 - 10:31 pm -2
But they didn' kill him...
Mi perro ha muerto.
Lo enterré en el jardín
junto a una vieja máquina oxidada.
Allí, no más abajo,
ni más arriba,
se juntará conmigo alguna vez.
Ahora él ya se fue con su pelaje,
su mala educación, su nariz fría.
Y yo, materialista que no cree
en el celeste cielo prometido
para ningún humano,
para este perro o para todo perro
creo en el cielo, sí, creo en un cielo
donde yo no entraré, pero él me espera
ondulando su cola de abanico
para que yo al llegar tenga amistades...
Nope, they didn't...
