A senior military officer from the 1973-1990 Chilean dictatorship of Gen. Augusto Pinochet has fled just before he was to be imprisoned and released a video declaring his innocence.

Retired Gen. Eduardo Iturriaga was due to report to prison on Monday to start a five-year term for the kidnap of a leftist Pinochet opponent in 1974.
