Peru wants lawyer for Shining Path leader charged
Lima: Peru`s Justice Minister says the government will ask a public prosecutor to file "apology for terrorism" charges against the lawyer for imprisoned Shining Path rebel leader Abimael Guzman.
Aurelio Pastor says the request will be made on Monday, three days after lawyer Alfredo Crespo announced the publication of a book of manuscripts written by Guzman in prison.
Pastor said at a news conference late Sunday that the government will seek to find out how publication of the 408-page book was financed and how manuscripts were taken out of the prison.
Crespo says the government`s move "looks to end the freedom of expression and thought guaranteed in the Constitution."
When he was captured in 1992, Guzman commanded at least 10,000 Maoist armed fighters.
