However, Riera remarked that if the sentence is executed and there is no process pending against the former president and restrictive measures, he would not have any impediment in leaving the country.
“We have not yet been notified of the sentence. If it were executed and there was a revocation, the man would not have an impediment logically, unless there is some other judicial process in progress and they request an impediment.narrowed down
Finally, the former president’s lawyer was confident that Alberto Fujimori can leave the Barbadillo de Ate prison, where he has been held for almost 15 years, at the end of next week.
