In a recent proposal calling for new human rights legislation, Chilean President Ricardo Lagos stated that his government would "leave the interpretation of the Amnesty Law to the courts. Some say they see him as a savior who rescued them from the socialist policies of Allende and who did what had to be done in a turbulent time to prevent anarchy and communism. But global perceptions of the Chilean economic model changed, slowly at first, more rapidly and massively after the mids. The two laws, known as the "Full Stop" and "Due Obedience" laws, respectively set a day deadline for the filing of human rights cases and exempted low-level officers from trial on the grounds that they were unaware of the illegality of their orders.
