After the Constitutional Court (TC) decided to declare founded an appeal that will allow ex-dictator Alberto Fujimori to be freedjournalist Caesar Hildebrandt He considered that although this caused great damage to Peru, it is best to show compassion for him, in an act of demonstrating that the country is superior to its corrupter.
“Alberto Fujimori lost his honor and reputation for everything he did and for everything he instigated to do. Freedom is what means the least in his case. He has only a few years left and his doctors and lawyers speak of a humanitarian pardon. Being compassionate with a prisoner more than octogenarian and sick is a demonstration that Peru is better than the man who wanted to infect it forever, ”he pointed out in his weekly Hildebrandt in his thirteen.
In addition, he indicated that the Relatives of the victims of La Cantuta and Barrios Altos who were assassinated by their government must understand that if he is left in prison until the end of his days and dies in prison, “a fog of false heroism and victimization will try to cover his memory.”
“Fujimori is a happily closed chapter in Peruvian politics. His daughter will not be president And with the patriarch this story will end, which would have been extraordinary if it had been limited to economic reconstruction and liquidating terrorist remnants. It was not so, however. Fujimori’s autocratic dream destroyed his government and put an end to his legend of efficacy”, he added.

Fujimori’s government, he mentions in his column, rotted the Armed forcesdisappeared at constitutional Courtturned Congress into “a brothel”, and “transferred the SIN” to the Judiciary.
“Fujimori has been in jail for 15 years. His daughter has tried to be president three times. The weight of the backpack is excessive. The surname he bears has the resonance of a curse. He chases her, shoots her in the back, like those from La Cantuta”, he referred.
