The scene is now set for further legal moves by former Chilean dictator General Augusto Pinochet's legal team in the battle to ward off moves to extradite him to Spain, where he may have to face criminal proceedings. The High Court has given leave for Pinochet's lawyers to seek a writ of habeas corpus in the latest moves to free him and allow him to return to Chile.
