Peruvian opposition leader Fujimori freed from Prison

With a wide smile on her face, Peruvian opposition leader Keiko Fujimori has walked from the Lima prison in which she had been held for at least a year awaiting trial on corruption allegations.

Fujimori is the chief of this right-wing Popular Force celebration.

The daughter of the former president Alberto Fujimori was fulfilled by her husband along with a bunch of cheering supporters.

She is accused of concealing illegal campaign funds obtained from a Brazilian construction firm, but Peru’s Constitutional Tribunal ruled Monday that she shouldn’t be detained pending trial.

Her launch comes before legislative elections in January.

Fujimori’s party had a majority in Peru’s Congress before President Martin Vizcarra dissolved it.
