Former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori was released from Lima’s Barbadillo prison jail after 16 years on humanitarian grounds. The octogenarian was serving a 25-year jail term for human rights abuses during his decade-long rule from 1990 to 2000. 

The country's highest court ruled to restore a

contentious 2017 pardon, despite criticisms from the Inter-American Court of Human Rights and the victims’ families. Fujimori was convicted in 2009 of ordering the killing of 25 people in 1991 and 1992, but was given a pardon in December 2017 by former President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski.
