SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — A Chilean human rights lawyer is asking the courts to charge the father of one presidential candidate with the torture and murder of her rival's father in 1974.
Attorney Eduardo Contreras said Friday that charges are supported by two former military officers who confronted Gen. Fernando Matthei in court last month.
The retired general's daughter Evelyn Matthei is running for the center-right coalition against the victim's daughter, former President Michelle Bachelet, who represents the center-left in the Nov. 17 presidential election.
Both families have said that the elder Matthei had no direct involvement in the death of Gen. Alberto Bachelet, who was convicted by dictator Augusto Pinochet's military of being a traitor for not joining the coup.
