SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — The daughter of toppled President Salvador Allende says that those convicted of human rights violations during Chile's long dictatorship should be moved to common prisons, and out of the relatively luxurious lockup where they are serving multiple life sentences.

President Sebastian Pinera says that he's thinking about closing the prison, where inmates enjoy tennis courts, gardens and cable TV.

Among those held is Manuel Contreras, the former spy chief of Gen. Augusto Pinochet. Contreras gave interviews ahead of the 40th anniversary of the coup claiming that all of the thousands of disappeared were armed leftists killed in gunfights.

Sen. Isabel Allende also said in an AP interview Thursday that the claim is a repugnant lie that shows Contreras doesn't deserve privileges.
