Two former officials of the Chilean military have been arrested for the killing of General Alberto Bachelet, the father of the former president, Michelle Bachelet.
Ramon Caceres and Edgar Ceballos, formerly members of the Chilean Air Force, are charged with torturing to death Gen Bachelet, who died in 1974, after a coup led by Gen Pinochet saw the imposition of military rule in Chile.
Judge Mario Carroza said the torture aggravated the general’s heart condition which then caused his death.
The case was reopened by Judge Carroza last year following a complaint by relatives of the general.
Gen Bachelet’s daughter became Chile’s president in 2006 and is now the head of the UN Women’s Agency.
