Former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet failed to pay more than 17 million dollars in back taxes to the Chilean Internal Revenue Service (IRS) since 1980, judicial sources revealed Tuesday.

The above mentioned figure, which includes Pinochet’s failed taxes from 1998 to 2004, was provided by the Accounting department of the Crime Investigation lab and it is a part of a report submitted to Judge Sergio Munoz, who is conducting the investigation process over Pinochet’s secret accounts in Riggs bank.

The Internal Revenue Service has requested Munoz to deeply investigate the former dictator’s tax fraud from 1980 to 2004 and called for Pinochet, his secretary Monica Ananais and his former personal lawyer Oscar Aitken to testify.

Meanwhile, hearings for the three pending appeals in the Riggs case were postponed until next Monday.
