Fujimori says he will not appeal travel ban
Ex-president Alberto Fujimori said Wednesday he would not oppose a judge's ban on his leaving Peru ahead of a new trial.
"I will not appeal. All I want is to have time with my family and write my memoirs," the ex-president, 79, said on Twitter.
Fujimori, president from 1990-2000, had been serving a 25-year prison sentence for crimes that included commanding death squads that killed suspected civilian sympathizers of leftwing guerrillas his regime was fighting.
The ex-president was pardoned on December 24 by then-president Pedro Pablo Kuczynski on humanitarian grounds because of ill health.
A criminal court, however, later ruled that Kuczynski's pardon did not apply to a separate 1992 case involving slain farmers.
In addition, a human rights group said Fujimori and three ex-ministers would be indicted over the forced sterilization of five women while he was in office.
