"Jorge Sandoval was still a schoolboy in Chile when arrested in 1973 in front of his bewildered family. A member of a student union and linked to supporters of the ousted president Allende, he was targeted by Pinochet's brutal regime. Dragged off to a police station, tortured and beaten, he was confined for a year in a concentration camp. Even after his release Jorge was a marked man. He escaped Chile via Argentina and arrived in New Zealand in 1976 as a political refugee. Despite having no English when he got here, Jorge has succeeded as a sportsman, cycling promoter and businessman, culminating in his award of the New Zealand Order of Merit in 2006"--Back cover.
