Peru: Fujimori does not have cancer

Now, should this be a good news or a bad news story?

Former Peruvian president Alberto Fujimori does not have cancer, according to a medical report. There is "no current evidence" of the cancerous lesions the ex-president has previously had operated on on his tongue, examinations found. This was relevant because his supporters had been arguing he should be let out of prison on the grounds of his terminal illness. It's accepted that he has had cancer-related treatment on his mouth several times, but he does not appear to be terminally ill right now.

On the other hand, he is apparently depressed - the experts disagree on the severity of his condition.

I don't wish cancer on anyone and I do wish continued jail time on convicted human rights abuser, Alberto Fujimori, so for me - it's a good news story.
