Slow progress in legal battle again Montesinos and Fujimori

Slow progress in legal battle again Montesinos and Fujimori: "Even what the government considers its crowning achievement in the fight on corruption dismantling the mammoth criminal network run by Mr. Fujimori's spy chief, Vladimiro Montesinos has lagged in Peru's byzantine judicial system. Trials and investigations by a special team of prosecutors and judges are moving at a glacial pace, with only 33 defendants convicted so far. Nearly 1,100 defendants remain free, including powerful politicians and newspaper owners. With their high-priced lawyers, they continue to stir up conflict and accusations against Mr. Toledo and his allies." NY Times Confirmation that these cases may end up like almost all ones under previous governments -- dumped into the trash when a new government comes in.
