Peru’s SC confirms 25-year sentence for Fujimori
Lima: The Peruvian Supreme Court early Sunday unanimously confirmed a 25-year prison sentence on the country`s former president Alberto Fujimori.
A Supreme Court review of Fujimori`s convictions was requested in November by his defence lawyer, who asked the high court to revoke his client`s sentence for human rights abuses.
"None of the 10 pieces of evidence that went to determine his guilt as mastermind of premeditated murder have to do with the issue of him giving the order for the Barrios Altos and La Cantuta" killings in 1991 and 1992," attorney Cesar Nakazaki told the court.
The defence lawyer also asked for an annulment of Fujimori`s conviction in the kidnapping of a journalist and a businessman in 1992, also because he claimed there was not enough evidence to prove that the former president had ordered the abductions.
