Peruvian politics Keiko Fujimori He assured on Saturday that he has submitted a request to the Constitutional Court (TC) so that your father, former President Alberto Fujimori (1990-2000), be released and hopes that this court will order his release in “the next few days” or “hours”.

“We are waiting with great confidence, we trust that my father can finally be free in the coming days or hours,” Keiko Fujimori said after visiting the former president in prison.

A court in the Ica region declared the case inadmissible on Friday a resolution of the TC that restored the pardon to the former president, who will therefore remain in prisonalthough it has ordered “that everything taken should be returned to the Constitutional Court,” so Keiko Fujimori hopes that this court will “carry out its own ruling” and release her father.

Former President Alberto Fujimori will remain in Peru after his release, his daughter Keiko says

“It is true that yesterday we expected that the Ica judge would have ordered the release, but he declared himself incompetent and sent the entire file back to the TC (…). What now corresponds is that the Constitutional Court itself must implement its own ruling,” said Keiko Fujimori.

In this regard, he explained that he, together with his brother Kenji and the lawyer representing them, presented a document requesting the TC to release the former president.

When asked whether the original decision of the TC, which the Ica court found inadmissible, should have been clearer, she stated that it is not her responsibility to “give an opinion on the matter”, but rather “to be careful to wait’.

Finally, he assured that his father is calm and waiting for the final decision of the Constitutional Court.

In his decision on Friday, Judge Fernando Vicente Fernández Tapia, responsible for the First Preparatory Investigative Court of Ica, said: declared it inadmissible in that case to enforce Fujimori’s release sentence.

He added in his ruling that “therefore” and “on the basis of a legal mandate” it agrees with the Constitutional Court “but not with the court where the demand for habeas corpus, if applicable, issue a declaration on the execution of the award granting “the freedom of the beneficiary Alberto Fujimori, since the claim for habeas corpus in the said highest constitutional authority.”

Days earlier, TC President Francisco Morales had declared that authorities should “proceed with the immediate release” of Fujimori, despite the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IDH Court) ruling last year opposite commanded.

“The previous verdict must be carried out,” Morales told the newspaper Channel N television, by clarifying a TC order that declared inadmissible a Justice Ministry consultation on the pardon granted to Fujimori by then-President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski in 2017 and which had given rise to differing interpretations.

The pardon was already annulled by the judiciary in 2018, after the Inter-American Court asked the Peruvian state to guarantee justice for the victims of the massacres in Barrios Altos and La Cantut.a, the cases for which Fujimori was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Hours before the Ica judge’s decision, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) expressed concern about the possibility that the TC’s resolution would lead to Fujimori’s release.
