Peru: Ex-leader Fujimori attends court hearing over 1992 massacre

Former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori appeared in Peru's National Criminal Court in Lima on Friday, facing charges related to the killing of seven farmers in Pativilca on January 29, 1992. Fujimori was pardoned on December 24 by then-President Pablo Pedro Kuczynski on grounds of ill health, while serving a 25-year prison sentence for corruption and humans rights violations committed during... Еще his decade in office from 1990 to 2000. A criminal court later ruled that Kuczynski's controversial pardon did not apply to the case of the killed farmers. In Friday's hearing, prosecutors requested the Peruvian criminal court to order the former leader to remain in the country until the case is complete. However, Fujimori assured the court that he does not «intend to travel anywhere» and the idea of leaving the country seemed «absurd» to him.
