SANTIAGO: A Chilean appeals court on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) ruled that $4.8-million in cash and assets frozen during a legal investigation is to be returned to the family of late longtime dictator Augusto Pinochet. In a split ruling that still could be appealed, the Chilean court ordered “to return money and property seized from the family of Augusto Pinochet Ugarte” worth $4,894,638. The assets have been seized by the courts since the investigation of the so-called Riggs case in 2004. The assets to be returned to the heirs of the Chilean ex-dictator who was in power from 1973 to 1990 are 24 properties, three vehicles and seven bank accounts, according to the ruling.
