Pincochet finally escapes justice...

Sorry to report that the old Chilean dictator will not face charges. Newsflash on death of General Augusto Pinochet at BBC.

Wonder if Lady Thatcher will be fit enough to attend the funeral of her favourite pal who she entertained to tea at Downing Street when she was Prime Minister.

Some 3,000 Chileans 'disappeared' after Pinochet led a military coup. Human rights groups accused him of ordering torture and executions.

He was under house arrest and due to face charges concerning tax evasion and the "Caravan of Death" which involved hit squads touring Chile to eradicate those who opposed him.
