Argentine and Chilean courts are investigating bank transfers to Argentina made by former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet, the Argentine newspaper Clarin revealed on 20 June. The paper published details of a US Senate report that alleges Pinochet’s wife and sons, as well as certain businesses he has links with, have transferred their money to the Buenos Aires Citibank. The news comes at a time when the Santiago Appeals Court decided on 7 June to strip Pinochet of his immunity in order to allow the Chilean courts to investigate his foreign bank accounts.
