Rebel ally freed after 15 years
Wednesday 21 December 2011
An American woman paroled after 15 years in a Peruvian jail for aiding left-wing guerrillas returned to the US yesterday.
Lori Berenson, 42, said she and her two-year-old son, Salvador Apari, will spend Christmas with relatives in New York before returning to Peru by 11 January as ordered by a court.
Her departure from Peru, under intense media scrutiny, follows days of confusion after local authorities stopped her from flying to the US last Friday.
She was paroled last year after serving three-quarters of a 20-year sentence imposed in 1996 over her involvement with the Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement.
