Peru's Judiciary Chairman Jose Luis Lecaros on Friday affirmed former presidential candidate
is not a political prisoner.
Last Monday, Fuerza Popular —Fujimori's political party— announced its decision to report Fujimori's situation to the international community, as they consider her a "political prisoner."
Likewise, the Judiciary Chairman indicated the Supreme Court —at a public hearing— assessed the criteria to order preventive detention.
He went on to add that after a second meeting —that could take place in the first days of August— the supreme magistrates' decision could be published after 15 days.
Furthermore, Lecaros pointed out these accords will set a precedent in the assessment of preventive detention requests and must be respected by all Peruvian judges.
The Judicial Branch declared well-founded the request made by the Prosecutor's Office to imprison Fujimori because of the danger of obstruction of justice that implied keeping her free.
