Peruvians rally to keep former president in jail

Hundreds of Peruvians rally against a potential pardon for former president Alberto Fujimori. The one-time leader is serving a 25-year prison term for corruption and human rights abuses. But he is battling oral cancer and Peru's current president is said to be considering a pardon. That prospect upset many who lived through Fujimori's long autocratic rule. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) GISELA ORTIZ, RELATIVE OF CANTUTA MASSACRE VICTIM, SAYING: "It truly makes us indignant that the long, 20-year struggle by relatives to defend our right to justice is suddenly endangered by some sort of political negotiation to benefit a murderer responsible for violating human rights." Fujimori's authoritarian government collapsed in 2000 and he was later convicted of theft and using death squads to crack down on leftist insurgents.Auteur: reutersTags: and human pardon protest against Alberto rally Raven for Andrew Gepost: 20 oktober 2012Beoordeling: 0.0Stemmen: 0]]>
