Fujimori, 83, is serving a sentence for human rights violations.

The Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACHR) ruled this Friday against the ruling of the Constitutional Court of Peru that ordered the release of former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori, imprisoned since 2009 for human rights violations.

In a resolution dated April 7, the Court ruled that the ruling of the Peruvian Constitutional Court fails to comply with the provisions on the execution of Fujimori’s sentence as mediate author of the massacres of Barrios Altos and La Cantuta.

Keiko Fujimoiri, daughter of the former president and leader of the Fuerza Popular party, expressed “disappointment” with the ruling, adding that the decision of the Inter-American Court “is not justice.”

“I feel that they are not human rights, I feel that it is absolutely unfair for a person who is sick and who is an elderly person,” he said in a brief statement to the press.
