The Peruvian government faces the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IAC Court). The International Court of Justice has charged Tina Polwarte with contempt of the regime By freeing former dictator Alberto Fujimori, convicted of crimes against humanity and failing to comply with rulings by the Inter-American Court of Justice against the pardon, the government on Friday defended the release, calling it “no disgrace.” ” The logic-challenging response was loaded with absurdity and a dizzying refusal to ensure that the decisions of the Inter-American Court of Justice were respected while not complying with those decisions by acquitting Fujimori.
For the Inter-American Court, the pardon was illegal
The Inter-American Court of Justice has given the government until March to respond to accusations of contempt of its December 7 extradition resolutions. A humanitarian apology. The Inter-American Court has opposed Fujimori's release, deeming the pardon illegal following his execution for the Barrios Altos and La Cantuda massacres. So those responsible for these crimes are tried and punished. Fujimori was sentenced to 25 years in prison for both cases.
The Boluarte government decided in March to present what it should respond with a report from the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Justice and Human Rights. The rights and international treaties to release Fujimori – which he violated – and the US-Inter-American Court's ruling on Barrios Altos and La Cantuda are already being executed and “fulfilled” – compliance with that sentence means that Fujimori is serving his sentence, which did not happen with his release – so, It says “no disrespect”. A brief text, but unabashedly, reveals the cynicism of a government that crudely distorts reality to hide its responsibilities. It is the same cynicism that Poluarte repeats, saying that the 49 people who died in social protests against his government, even against residents who did not participate in the protests, died in “conflicts” when security forces fired on unarmed protesters.
Ridiculous and shameful
“The government's statement in response to the Inter-American Court is absurd. This is a shameful decision“, he points out Page/12 Carlos RiveraA lawyer specializing in human rights Institute of Legal Defense (IDL). Rivera says, “The Peruvian government has placed itself in a clear position of contempt for international law, but henceforth itand has been relegated to international ridicule. This contrasts with the lengthy, three-paragraph, 29-page resolution., its purpose was to deny a situation that the whole world saw: Fujimori was acquitted against the decisions of the Inter-American Court. The Peruvian government likes to mock the court, saying it respects these bodies honestly, but Fujimori remains independent, saying in effect 'I'm not interested in your position, I don't know your jurisdiction'. This puts the Peruvian state in a position of confrontation with the International Court of Justice, where it stands to lose.”.
Rivera questions the government's defense of Fujimori's release, saying it complies with the decisions of internal jurisdictions like the TC, saying “something is unsustainable. It has long been held that provisions of domestic law cannot override decisions of international law., inferior to the decisions of institutions of international jurisdiction such as the Corre IDH. The Vienna Convention has been saying this for over 50 years. It is also untenable that Peru's TC specifies what the powers of an international court are. A lawyer representing victims from Barrios Altos and La Cantuda notes that after receiving a response from the Peruvian government in March, the Inter-American Court called for a hearing and should issue a decision “in about two months.” “There would have been a way to challenge Fujimori's pardon and release in the domestic jurisdiction,” he points out.
Gloria CanoDirector Society for Human Rights (Aprodeh), and the lawyer for the victims of Barrios Altos and La Cantita, refers to the government's response to the Inter-American Court as “an insistence on contempt”. He describes this response as, “Saying I'm compliant when it doesn't work out is pure cynicism. It's like saying I didn't hit you, but I'm still hitting you.” “The administrator is trying to deny everything, but this time I believe that the denial of responsibilities will not work, the decision of the court is strong”. Kano believes Fujimori's release would violate international law and lead to economic sanctions. “The court has already decided to inform the OAS General Assembly that Peru is not in compliance with international standards. Obstacles may come. Agreements such as the FTA with the EU contain democracy and human rights clauses and may be affected. And the goal of Peru's entry into the OECD. The situation in Peru is already complicated, but it will only get more complicated if they continue this disrespect.
