    Peru: Public Prosecutor requests preventive detention for Keiko Fujimori for failing to comply with probation

    In 2020, a judge allowed Fujimori to be released from prison and placed on probation with some rules, such as the prohibition to communicate with witnesses.

    The Peruvian public prosecutor's office has requested that conservative presidential candidate Keiko Fujimori be remanded in custody for failing to comply with “the obligations imposed by the Criminal Court of Appeals” by meeting with one of the witnesses in her alleged money laundering trial during a press conference, which she was prohibited from doing. The request is contained in a document circulating since Thursday with the signature of the prosecutor in charge of the Lava Jato case in Peru, José Domingo Pérez.
