Peru Deports Chilean Terrorist after Completing Prison Sentence

LIMA – Peruvian authorities deported on Saturday a Chilean terrorist and former ringleader of the Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement who was released after completing a prison sentence of 23 years.

Jaime Castillo Petruzzi was driven from the Miguel Castro prison, located in Lima’s San Juan de Lurigancho municipality, to the Jorge Chavez airport, where he boarded a plane bound for Chile.

Peru’s National Penitentiary Institute director Carlos Vasquez said that Petruzzi served his sentence fully without any prison benefits because of being convicted for terrorism.

Petruzzi was responsible for the kidnappings of 12 businessmen, and after his capture in 1993, was sentenced for the killing of eight soldiers and police officers.

A “faceless” military court sentenced him to life imprisonment in 1994 in a trial where he was denied his right to a defense, and subsequently the sentence was reduced to 23 years when a ruling of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights annulled the first process and ordered another trial.

The Marxist Tupac group started its activities in 1984 and was held responsible by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission for 1.5 percent of the more than 69,000 deaths caused by the internal conflict between the group and the Shining Path Maoists and against the Peruvian government between 1980-2000.
