LA Times Peru Begins Revision of Anti-Terrorism Measures: "Decree 25880, for example, made it "treason to the fatherland" for a teacher or professor to speak in favor or defense of terrorism. The sentence for violating the decree: life in prison. That decree was one of four overturned by Peru's Constitutional Tribunal." Just one example of several Draconian laws to fight terrorism. It was not just the laws, but their interpretation by military prosecutors and judges. Speaking out against local abuses could become treason. (Registration is required, but free.)
