Pinochet Saga Continues

From Bloomberg.com:

Chile's former dictator, Augusto Pinochet, had his presidential immunity stripped by the country's Supreme Court as part of an investigation into the disappearance of 15 people during his regime.

A panel of judges voted 10 to six to uphold a July ruling by an appeals court as part of a case known as ``Operation Colombo,'' according to a copy of the decision distributed today by e-mail in Santiago. The earlier ruling said there were grounds to suspect Pinochet had a role in a plot by the nation's secret police to cover up killings of opponents.

Unfortunately, the bum is too sick to stand trial.
