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”.
