The president of Peru, Martín Vizcarra, called on Friday to fight against corruption in favor of democracy without threats, or armoring, by opposing criticism on the judicial ruling that keeps the opposition leader Keiko Fujimori in preventive detention since Wednesday.
A week after the justice annulled the pardon to her father, the former president Alberto Fujimori, after a request of the Peru's Attorney of Wash of Assets, the powerful leader of the Popular Force party, Keiko Fujimori, was arrested in Lima on Wednesday after going to a court to be questioned with her husband. The arrest occurred amid an investigation for alleged irregular handling of funds of the party's campaign for 2011 presidential elections.
Peru's embattled President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski said on Monday he was confident of surviving an impeachment vote later this week. I know that Thursday will be fine, the conservative leader said in a speech in the Amazonian city of Iquitos.
Recently pardoned former president Alberto Fujimori called for Peruvians on Saturday to set aside their “grudges” in order to unite against violence and crime, appealing to his right-wing political base two days after being freed from prison by a presidential pardon.
Condemning the pardoning of former President of Peru, Alberto Fujimori, a group of United Nations independent human rights experts have said that the move undermines the work of the judiciary and the international community to achieve justice.
