RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug. 10 - The wife and younger son of Gen. Augusto Pinochet were in police custody in Santiago, Chile, on Wednesday after a judge ordered them detained in connection with a tax fraud investigation of secret bank accounts that General Pinochet, the former Chilean dictator, opened in an American bank.
Lucía Hiriart de Pinochet and Marco Antonio Pinochet are charged with being General Pinochet's accomplices in a decade-long scheme to shift millions of dollars, whose origins are also being investigated, to safe havens abroad.
