Judge rejects releasing Alberto Fujimori in Peru

Lima, Dec 1 (Prensa Latina) A judge declared on Friday that it was improper to release former Peruvian Governor Alberto Fujimori, by rejecting a Constitutional Court ruling that opened the possibility of freeing the prisoner.

Magistrate from the southern Ica City Vicente Fernandez argued in his ruling that the Constitutional Court did not solve on the merits of a habeas corpus petition requesting Fujimori’s freedom and that he lacks of competence to pronounce on the case.

In addition, the authority cited the ruling of the supranational justice that in 2022 ordered the Peruvian State to abstain from executing the order to free Fujimori as long as he does not meet the requirements to merit the humanitarian pardon he received in December 2017, and annulled as illegal by the Judiciary.

The magistrate, amid pressure to free the prisoner, also referred to the position of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACHR), which blocked the 2022 ruling, noting that the Court must resolve the contradiction of its ruling and that of the IACHR.
