FujimoriWatch in Peru

A year and a half ago we posted on Chile's extradition of Peru's former President, Alberto Fujimori (left), into "the hands of justice" in the country he once governed. Now his trial on charges related to massacres in 1991 and 1992 is nearly over, and the country awaits the verdict.
Today's edition of the Lima daily La República reports:
Last Thursday thousands took to the streets to express their confidence in the Peruvian justice system. The prosecutor has asked for 30 years in prison for Alberto Fujimori. The day of sentencing is near. The majority do not want impunity.
Stay tuned.
