66. Again, you are wrong. Pinochet's immunity claim was rejected.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_Immunity_Act_1978
In 1998 the defence attempted to use it during Augusto Pinochet's arrest and trial, but Lord Nicholls said that the Act flouted a battery of international legislation on human rights abuses to which Britain is a signatory, and would have meant, according to the arguments of Pinochet's legal team, that British law would have protected even Adolf Hitler.
