The purpose of the research is to verify whether, in Chile in the period between August 2008 and August 2020, limitations or restrictions made to the right to personal data protection of persons deprived of liberty, based on the legitimate exercise of the freedom of information has been legal. Mainly in cases in which the ejerciese of freedom of information has been bases on the “public interest” of the information requested.
