Pinochet - Sane After All!


For years Augusto Pinochet, former Dictator of Chile, puppet of the US, murderer, torturer, sadist, ... has been avoiding trial and prosecution for crimes against humanity for allegedly being mentally unfit to stand trial. (See articles)

Recent comments from his daughter tell a different story. They describe a man who feels remorse for what he's done, and therefore an understanding of what he's done. From Democracy Now:
Victims’ Families Reject Pinochet Meeting Request
In Chile, the daughter of former dictator Augusto Pinochet has announced her father is willing to meet with the families of victims tortured or disappeared under his rule.
    Lucia Pinochet: "He feels very pained for this and he has told me, that he feels that if he would be able to meet with these people he would express to them a profound apology. And this is the truth because he has not announced this, he told me this in private."
The daughter, Lucia Pinochet, went on to say Pinochet is not willing to seek a national pardon. Her comments come two weeks after Pinochet was put under house arrest for overseeing kidnapping, murder and torture at the secret prison of Villa Grimaldi.

Expressing a 'profound apology' implies complete understanding of what you're apologizing for, no? This would then also imply being in possession of the mental faculties to stand trial for that which you are apologizing...no?
Meanwhile, some leading human rights lawyers believe Pinochet’s reported comments may undermine the former dictator’s repeated defense to avoid being brought to court.

This guy really needs to stand trial for what he's done. It's a criminal act itself to allow his obviously phony defense to shield him from justice.
