Did Wife and Son Aid Pinochet With Bank Account

This is not the first time one sees Augusto Pinochet's accounts at Riggs Bank mentioned.  (see here)  But the focus this time is on Pinochet's wife and son, and the investigation relates to their aiding the General with these accounts.  (see New York Times here)  With respect to Pinochet's wife, a defense appears to be one premised upon her being an innocent spouse who was unaware of her husband's financial dealings. One rather eye-brow raising comment in the article is that Gen Pinochet was visiting his wife who was being held in a military hospital.  The claim has been that he is not medically fit to stand trial.
