Pinochet indicted on human rights charges
A Chilean judge has ordered the house arrest of the country’s former dictator, General Augusto Pinochet, on human rights charges.
The judge charged Pinochet over the kidnapping of nine dissidents and the killing of one dissident during his brutal 17 year regime.
The ruling follows a recent admission from Chile’s armed forces that it systematically tortured and murdered during Pinochet’s dictatorship which began after a coup against the Marxist government of President Salvador Allende in 1973.
A US-backed coup, it was, engineered by Henry Kissinger, a war criminal if there ever was one.
