CNN / AP Peru military court nullifies amnesty law - October 16, 2001: "The court made its decision in compliance with a September 3 ruling by the Inter-American Court on Human Rights, a statement from the Supreme Military Justice Tribunal said." A military court accepting the jurisdiction of an international tribunal is a reversal of precedent in Peru. I can't remember this ever happening before. It will also mean that many cases will be subject to review. It also opens another hole in Fujimori's defense against charges for his handling of the war against Sendero and MRTA.
