The parrilla (Template:Lang-for) is a method of torture where the victim is strapped to a metal frame and subjected to electric shock.[1] It has been used in a number of contexts in South America.


In the 1970s, during the Dirty War, the parrilla was used in Argentina.[2]


Francisco Tenório Júnior, (known as Tenorinho), Brazilian piano virtuoso, was subjected to the parrilla during the military dictatorship in Brazil.[3] He disappeared while on tour in Argentina in March 1976.


The parrilla was commonly used at Villa Grimaldi, a prison complex maintained by Dirección de Inteligencia Nacional, a part of the Pinochet regime.[4]
