Chile's police found Cordova on the day of the events less than 2 kilometers away from the Luchsinger-Mackay farm with a gunshot wound. With no solid evidence, they assumed that he was involved in the attack.
Cordova began a hunger strike after his imprisonment to demand the Indigenous people and their inmates' rights to be respected.
"Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have asked that our political prisoners be treated like other common prisoners. They deserve early release or parole," Coroba's spokesperson Cristina Romo said.
She also called for joining the struggle in the prisons and to continue fighting injustice until Chile's Attorney General's office gives in to Mapuche people's demands.
