Former Peruvian dictator will remain in prison
On October 22nd, the Peruvian president, Martín Vizcarra, vetoed a project of law formulated by the Popular Force. The bill passed by the Congress would guarantee home arrest to prisoners over 65 with serious diseases. This means that the former President Alberto Fujimori (Popular Force Party) would be released. The law was an attempt of the populist right party to avoid Fujimori’s return to prison after the humanitarian pardon was revoked by the Peruvian court on October 3rd. Alberto Fujimori was president from 1990 until 2000. In 1992 he dissolved the Congress, the Constitution and the Judiciary power with the support of the Armed Forces, starting a dictatorship in Peru. Fujimori has been in prison since 2005 for human rights violation, corruption and forced sterilization of more than 250,000 women during his “family planning” project.
