Pinochet daughter sent packing
From correspondents in Santiago
January 28, 2006

THE eldest daughter of former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet was set to return to South America, said a Government spokesman, after she dropped her request for political asylum in the US where she fled to avoid tax evasion charges.

Lucia Pinochet Hiriart, 64, was expected to fly today from Washington to Argentina, said spokesman Osvaldo Puccio. "We have information that Mrs. Pinchet will leave tonight on a flight for Buenos Aires," Puccio said.

Pinochet Hiriart was detained and denied entry Wednesday at Washington's Dulles airport upon arriving from Argentina. After 12 hours of questioning she requested political asylum.

Pinochet's eldest daughter was stopped after failing to respond to a summons from a Chilean judge to be formally charged with tax evasion linked to secret accounts kept by her father.

On Monday Chilean Judge Carlos Cerda pressed charges against Pinochet Hiriart for tax evasion to the tune of $US860,000 ($1.14 million) and the use of false passports.
