The Justice of Peru will evaluate today the request of the Prosecutor’s Office for the impediment of leaving the country for former President Alberto Fujimori, despite the pardon granted at the end of December by the President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, who presented his resignation as president last month, wrote El Economista.
This request comes as a consequence of the accusation Fujimori has along 22 other people of kidnapping and murdering six people in 1992.
“Fujimori’s lawyer, Miguel Pérez Arroyo, has confirmed that the former president will attend the hearing that will begin this Friday at 9:00 am local time, as reported by the newspaper ‘El Comercio’.”, wrote El Economista.
A few weeks ago it was known by revelations made by the Peruvian weekly “Hildebrant en sus trece” that Alberto Fujimori had begun the procedures to obtain a passport, which shows intentions of leaving the country.
However, his lawyer said to the media that this request wasn’t made by Fujimori himself and that he has no intentions of leaving Peru. “Fujimori currently doesn’t care about having a passport”, El Economista said, citing Pérez Arroyo.
On the other hand, Fujimori’s personal doctor, Alejandro Aguinaga said that one of the reasons of why the former president would want to get a passport is to get a deeper assessment abroad of the diseases he suffers.
