13/12/2004 Former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet is put under house arrest

Judge Juan Guzmán Tapia placed Pinochet under house arrest and indicted him over the disappearance of 9 opposition activists and the killing of one of them during his regime. However, the Supreme Court reversed the Appeals Court ruling in the Carlos Prats case in March 2005, and thereby affirmed Pinochet's immunity.
