Antauro Humala was released: “We are proud of what we did in Andahuaylas”

a day after the National Penitentiary Institute (INPE) reported it, he was released and left the Ancón II prison after serving more than 17 years and 7 months in prison for the crimes committed during the ‘Andahuaylazo’ that left four police officers dead .

In an implicit commitment to violence, the President of the Republic, Pedro Castillo, decided to free the seditious and police murderer Antauro Humala Tasso. The agents assassinated by Humala in 2005 were named Carlos Cahuana Pacheco, Luis Chávez Vásquez, Ricardo Rivera Fernández and Abelardo Cerrón Carbajal.

The ethnocacerist Antauro Humala showed no regrets after leaving the Ancón II prison this Saturday, August 20, and said he feels “very proud” of what he did in Andahuaylas, where he took over a police station and caused the death of four policemen in January 2005.

Speaking to his followers outside the prison, the retired military officer recalled the legal situation of former presidents Alejandro Toledo (2001-2006) and Pedro Pablo Kuczynski (2016-2018). He also implicitly referred to his brother Ollanta Humala (2011-2016).

“We are outside again and I can tell you that we all feel very proud of what we did in Andahuaylas. The courts have not yet, but the facts prove us right. Where are the presidents against whom we rebelled 17 years ago? [Alejandro] Toledo fugitive, prisoner, corrupt and thief. [Pedro Pablo] Kuczynski, who was minister of Toledo during the Andahuaylazo, just the same”, he expressed.

“We believe that the flags of Andahuaylas and Locumba are still valid and in that aspect and we have always been consistent because we go beyond what is said to what is done,” added Humala, who referred to the more than 17 years in prison he served as a “captivity” and announced that he will travel to Andahuaylas to thank the support of its population in 2005.

Freedom of Antauro Humala

The INPE reported on August 19 that the prisoner convicted of the crimes of simple homicide, kidnapping and others related to the 2005 ‘Andahuaylazo’ served his sentence under the figure of redemption of sentence

Antauro Humala, originally sentenced to 19 years in prison, served 17 years, 7 months and 14 days up to the date of the INPE statement.

For the prison authority, the prisoner according to Law 28760 achieves his freedom because the “computation of redemption of 7 days of work or education for 1 day of freedom” can be applied to sentenced for kidnapping.

In total, it was calculated that Humala Tasso completed 3,667 days of work and study, which is equivalent to serving a sentence of 1 year and 7 months.


Adolfo Cahuana, father of the late Captain Carlos Cahuana, does not forget that he is a “delinquent, murderer, kidnapper, anti-democratic and public drug user.”

“They continue and will continue with that idea that they had years ago when they caused the deaths of these policemen, that all they did was make themselves available to democracy and, in the end, they were vilely assassinated,” he told Peru21 in 2020.

“My son was lying on the ground, clutching his pocket. Suddenly someone approached, threw something at him and there he stayed, ”says Cristina Fernández, mother of non-commissioned officer Ricardo Rivera Fernández, through tears.

For José Chávez, father of PNP Lieutenant Luis Chávez, “unfortunately, there are many Peruvians who are unaware of the reality of what happened in Peru, there is a lot of ignorance. I’m sorry about that,” he noted.

Felix Chero defends release

The Minister of Justice and Human Rights, Félix Chero, referred to the release of the ethnocacerist Antauro Humala and remarked that “nobody can oppose” and the law has to be followed.

“He has complied with redeeming his sentence with work and education. Nobody can oppose because there is no such discretion to oppose”expressed to RPP.

“The law is fulfilled and therefore freedom proceeds, regardless of whether the inmate’s last name is Humala or of any other nature. His freedom corresponds to him and it is granted to him because it is a right that he has for the purpose of penitentiary benefits”he added.
