(LIP-jl) — Amnesty International (AI), the global human rights advocacy group, has launched a campaign that demands the extradition of Peru’s former President Alberto Fujimori for his role and participation in numerous human rights violations committed during his reign over the Andean nation.

According to Peru’s RPP Radio, AI will has planned to hold numerous public manifestations, expositions, forums, and discussions at universities throughout Chile -the country where Fujimori is currently awaiting the outcome of his extradition case.

Activities planned in the campaign dubbed ‘Fujimori: Actions against Impunity’, which is scheduled to last approximately one week, will kick off with a press conference attended by relatives of victims who perished under the former authoritarian’s administration.

Additionally, a protest rally will be held in front of Fujimori’s residence in the exclusive Santiago neighborhood of Las Condes.

Photographic exhibitions depicting acts and abuse perpetrated under Fujimori’s government will also be implemented in Santiago’s Plaza de Armas (main square) to help inform the Chilean public on what AI believes were the realities of his regime.
