Alberto Fujimori to be tried for death-squad killings despite recent pardon

Just two months after being released from prison on a pardon, former Peru President Alberto Fujimori will be going back to trial, according to a Monday decision. A Peruvian court ruled that the 79-year-old Fujimori will have to stand trial in connection with the 1992 death-squad killings of six farmers in the central Peruvian town of Pativilca.
In December, Fujimori was granted a medical pardon from a 25-year-prison sentence for his role in various human rights abuses, leading to widespread protests throughout the country. Those abuses involved authorizing other death-squad killings as part of the conflict between Fujimori’s administration and left-wing rebels that saw nearly 70,000 people die.
