Peru: Military Justice and Impunity

The prosecutor in the Fujimori trial has asserted that the military justice system contributed to the impunity surrounding the Cantuta massacre in Peru in the 1990s. The military justice system and the national intelligence service (SIN) formed a "strategy of impunity" which served to protect the intellectual authors of the crime, Vladimiro Montesinos and army leader Nicolás de Bari Hermoza Ríos.
