News Round-Up

In Peru, defense lawyers and prosecutors are to sum up in the trial of Fujimori (seems like this trial has been in its end stages for a long time already, right?)

Also, Lori Berenson has been moved to a prison in Lima because of health problems related to her pregnancy (she is married to another MRTA guerrilla whom she met in jail; they are allowed conjugal visits).

Former dictator of Panama, Manuel Noriega, is apparently currently the only prisoner of war on US soil (I didn't know that - did you?), but his fate after serving his sentence remains unclear. (Thanks to Two Weeks Notice for drawing my attention to that one).

And Impunity Watch has an article on the identification of victims of paramilitaries in Colombia.
