American Lori Berenson Freed from Peru Prison

Monday, 08 Nov 2010 07:58 PM

 

LIMA, Peru (AP) — American activist Lori Berenson has been released from prison in Peru after serving more than a decade behind bars for rebel collaboration.

The 40-year-old New York woman and her lawyer were seen arriving Monday at the Lima apartment where she plans to live.

Berenson told reporters she would not be making any immediate statement.

Berenson was paroled in May after serving three-quarters of a 20-year sentence but then was returned to prison in mid-August on a technicality.

The same judge who initially paroled Berenson reinstated her parole Friday.

Berenson cannot leave Peru until her 20-year sentence ends - unless Peru's president commutes it.
