Hi Blog. Just a quick word to say that the Japan Times will be publishing my next JUST BE CAUSE column tomorrow, this time on the recent sentencing of former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori’s recent sentencing to 21 years in jail for human rights abuses.
I know I know, I’ve commented on Fujimori ad nauseam in the past. However, with this sentencing to essentially life imprisonment (he’s 70 years old) by a Peruvian court, this column brings a sense of closure to his case, discussing the final good precedent of holding an outlaw president accountable for his international excesses. Have a read. At 950 words, you might find it concise and insightful. Get a copy!
