New York Times - Second Trial of New Yorker Jailed in Peru to Begin: "But in several interviews since she was imprisoned, Ms. Berenson has refused to criticize the Túpac Amaru group and she has chosen to remain in the same prison ward with Túpac Amaru prisoners rather than transfer to wards with prisoners who have repented." That she has chosen to share quarters with Tupac Amaru prisoners should not be held against her. I know Peruvian prison conditions and you need some kind of organized support in order to survive. Both MRTA and Sendero provide that kind of emotional and material support. Also see a 1996 story.
