The congressman of Popular Renewal, Jose Cuetopointed out that Peru should withdraw from the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IA Court) after this entity ordered the country not to release former President Alberto Fujimori, who is serving a sentence for various crimes.
“They have released all the terrorists, but they have not said anything there, I have said it several times that we should withdraw from this Court that does not give us absolutely nothing”, he told Channel N.
“Since the terrorists were defeated, they have dedicated themselves to changing this whole cultural issue in young people, telling them stories that do not fit reality. You have to obey what the judge says [del TC]sometimes it is complied with from one day to the next, and in other cases other instances are sought”he added.
Regarding the motion of censure against the Minister of Health, Hernán Condori, the legislator asserted that “apparently” they would have the votes to get the minister out, but warned that this could change.
International Court will meet on the Fujimori case
The Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACHR) convened a public hearing for this Friday, April 1, on the request for provisional measures made by the representatives of the victims of the Barrios Altos and La Cantuta cases, following the ruling of the Constitutional Court ( TC) in favor of former President Alberto Fujimori.
According to a resolution of said supranational body, the session will be held virtually that day from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., Costa Rica time, during the 147th Regular Period of Sessions of the Court.
