Peru Opposition Opens Disciplinary Probe against Kenji Fujimori

LIMA – Peru’s opposition Popular Force party opened on Monday a new disciplinary probe against lawmaker Kenji Fujimori, the youngest son of jailed former president Alberto Fujimori (1990-2000), party spokesperson Daniel Salaverry said.

The representative of the Fujimorist party told reporters the probe was initiated to address Kenji Fujimori’s open defiance of the party’s decisions.

“He was given a 60-day suspension, during which, far from reflecting on his attitude, he has persisted in this attitude of confrontation and affront towards his legislators and the Congress,” Salaverry said on Monday.

Kenji was suspended from the party in July for 60 days following repeated differences with party positions.

The Fujimorist lawmaker has repeatedly asserted his main aim is to secure a presidential pardon for his father who, since 2009, has been serving a 25-year jail sentence for crimes against humanity.

Another party lawmaker, Hector Becerril, told RPP Noticias radio that the new procedure will have to be reviewed by a disciplinary committee.

“The process will continue and the penalty will depend upon the report made by the commission in charge of evaluating the matter (...) a hostile attitude towards the legislators is not correct,” he said.
