Peru: Fujimori Knew about Gorriti's Abduction

In Fujimori's trial, it has been alleged that the ex-leader knew about the abduction of Gustavo Gorriti in 1992, at the time of Fujimori's "self-coup". He is supposed to have ordered the abduction of "inconvenient elements", including the prominent journalist.

Gorriti describes the incident in question in this interview from 1998.

Oh, yes, and the trial is now suspended until next Friday because supposedly, Fujimori is ill again.
