Peruvians Protest Fujimori's Pardon and Impunity

On Dec. 24, President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski announced a "humanitarian" pardon for former dictator Alberto Fujimori, who was serving a 25-year sentence for crimes against humanity. 

Hundred of Peruvians met in Lima's Plaza San Martin after the group No to Keiko, NAK, called for protests to reject the pardon granted to Alberto Fujimori.

New demonstration are scheduled for Thursday. Fujimori was charged in 2009 to 25 years in prison after being linked to killings, tortures and disappearances.
