Peru News

The Peruvian Times headlines rarely need further explanation, so here goes:

Peru's APRODEH awarded Letelier-Moffitt prize by the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington
“APRODEH has been the driving force behind the current trial of former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori for alleged crimes against humanity during his 1990-2000 reign,” stated the IPS, known as Washington D.C.’s first progressive, multi-issue think tank.

Former President Fujimori allegedly targeted new premier Yehude Simon for assassination in 1992
“We must be clear on the fact that the ‘dirty war’ strategy was applied basically as of January and February 1991 on Fujimori’s orders. Not only did he approve and know about it, he also ordered it.”
