Peru annuls Fujimori 'humanitarian' pardon, orders capture

  1. Former President was questionably pardoned by predecessor Pedro Pablo Kuczynski
  2. Some Peruvians credit Fujimori with defeating the nation's Maoist guerrillas, others blame him for human rights abuses

A Peruvian court annulled ex-President Alberto Fujimori’s pardon and ordered the 80-year old’s immediate arrest, the country’s Supreme Court reported via Twitter on Wednesday, 3 October.

“The judge issued the arrest and detention orders against former President Fujimori so that he may be re-integrated into the prison establishment,” said the state judiciary in a statement.

Early in August this year, the former leader said his liberation was “clinically sustained”.
