Peru’s Justice Annulled Pardon To Former President Alberto Fujimori


The presidential pardon given last year by ex-President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski to also former President Alberto Fujimori, has been annulled by the Peruvian Judicial branch.

In addition, an order for his location and immediate capture was issued in order to be re-admitted to the penitentiary establishment designated by the prison authority, said yesterday Gestión.

“This measure was issued by the judge of the Preparatory Investigation of the Supreme Court, Hugo Nuñez Julca, who declared a well-founded request of the civil party not to apply the humanitarian pardon in favor of the former President, who currently resides with the youngest of his children, the suspended congressman Kenji Fujimori”, informed Gestión.

The imprisonment of the ex-President is for the La Cantuta and Barrios Altos cases, for which he was convicted as an author of the crimes of aggravated homicide, serious injuries and aggravated kidnapping.

The Judicial branch also states that “the pardon granted to Alberto Fujimori, is incompatible with the international obligations that bind the Peruvian State, including the American Convention on Human Rights (ACHR)”.

They also pointed out that the medical report and the medical protocol (requirements for the treatment of the humanitarian pardon) were issued by a treating doctor, who does not have the medical specialty required for the illnesses the inmate alleged.
