The Inter-American Court of Human Rights
has issued a resolution requesting the Peruvian State to refrain from executing the ruling of the Constitutional Court, which ordered the immediate release of former President Alberto Fujimori.
Thus, the Court required the Peruvian State "to guarantee the right of access to justice for the victims of the Barrios Altos and La Cantuta cases, to refrain from executing the ruling of the Peruvian Constitutional Court (TC) dated December 4, 2023, which ordered the 'immediate release' of Alberto Fujimori Fujimori, until the Inter-American Court of Human Rights has all the necessary elements to analyze whether said decision complies with the conditions established in the Court's Resolution of April 7, 2022,"
reads the document.
The decision was taken after resolving an appeal from the ex-president's defense requesting reversal in this case.
After having fled to Japan and traveled to Chile, from where he was extradited to Peru, the Fujimori patriarch was sentenced for crimes against human rights and corruption committed during his term in office.
