State Defense Council determined to open earlier version of Gen. Augusto Pinochet’s will.
The Chilean press was expecting a surprise
when a Santiago court opened Gen. Augusto Pinochet’s last will and testament on Wednesday. But there wasn't any.
The only revelation was how little the document had been changed since the general altered it in 2005 just before his death. The only change Pinochet made to his will was the name of the will’s executor, the person in charge of his assets, from Oscar Aitken to Julia Hormazábal.
