Peru: 'We should not allow Fujimori to die in prison' — Kuczynski

Peruvian President Pablo Pedro Kuczynski stated that «those of us who feel democratic should not allow Alberto Fujimori to die in prison,» during a televised speech from Lima on Monday. Kuczynsk's statement came after the decision to pardon former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori from corruption charges was announced on Christmas Eve. Kuczynski said that «I am convinced that those of us who... Еще feel democratic should not allow Alberto Fujimori to die in prison, because justice is not revenge. Every pardon is controversial.» The Peruvian leader noted that «this has been perhaps the most difficult decision of my life. It is about the health and life chances of a former president of Peru who, having committed excesses and very serious errors, was sentenced and has already served twelve years in prison.» Fujimori was pardoned by sitting President Pablo Pedro Kuczynski on December 25 after the ex-leader was admitted to hospital the previous day. The 79-years-old former President Fujimori is currently serving a 25-year sentence for crimes connected to corruption and human rights violation, and was taken to hospital on Saturday after a drop in his blood pressure.
