The accusations on the document passed to the Congress Subcommittee on Constitutional Accusations referred to the sentence that reinstated the humanitarian pardon granted to former president Alberto Fujimori (1990-2000).
The Congresswomen said that the judges had violated articles 51 and 55 of the Constitution, alongside the principle of legal and valuation supremacy of the Magna Carta; and Article 139, paragraph 3, given the affection of the right of adequate judicial protection of the victims.
The Parliament itself has accused the three magistrates of reportedly committing the crime of perversion of justice for having issued a sentence contrary to the Constitution. "We need an independent Constitutional Court that ensures the validity of human rights," Luque posted on Twitter.
