Peru's Keiko Fujimori Leaves Prison after Top Court Ruling

LIMA, Peru (AP) — Once-powerful opposition leader and two-time Peruvian presidential candidate Keiko Fujimori has left prison to the cheers of her supporters and criticism by opponents who called it another blow for impunity for the corrupt.

Smiling broadly, the daughter of jailed ex-President Alberto Fujimori walked out of the women’s prison in the Lima district of Chorrillos and was handed a bouquet of roses by her husband, Mark Villanella, who had been on a hunger strike demanding her release.

Keiko Fujimori called her prison stay the “most painful time of my life, so the first thing I want to do now is thank God for giving me the strength to resist."

Fujimori was freed after Peru’s Constitutional Tribunal approved a request to release her from detention while she is investigated for alleged corruption.
