Winfried Hempel is suing for compensation for Colonia Dignidad’s victims. Starting in the early 1960s, hundreds of people suffered physical, psychological and sexual abuse in the colony. Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet tortured dissidents there.
The government has until the end of the month to come up with a plan to deal with the aftermath of the notorious German-led cult in Chile. But activists fear that the government won't meet the deadline.
