Chile opening Pinochet`s last will and testament
Santiago: Chilean officials will open the last will and testament of Gen Augusto Pinochet on Wednesday, a key step in determining just how large the dictator`s fortune was.
A study ordered by Chile`s Supreme Court determined years ago that the dictator accumulated $21 million before his death in 2006 at age 91 and said only $3 million of that was justified by his military salary.
He died under house arrest, facing charges of illegal enrichment along with human rights violations.
His oldest daughter, Lucia Pinochet, tells the Chilean newspaper La Segunda that it`s ``political persecution`` to open the will.
Chile`s justice system will keep the dictator`s last wishes private for now, but a government representative will be there looking to recover any state money that it points to.
