Peru: Military officers may face imprisonment as prisoners of conscience
AI is concerned that retired army generals Walter Ledesma Rebaza and Carlos Mauricio Agurto and retired navy captain Luis Mellet Castillo may face imprisonment as prisoners of conscience for publicly criticizing Peru's military operations during the recent armed conflict with Ecuador. If brought to trial and convicted, they face a maximum imprisonment of 20 years. General Walter Ledesma and Captain Luis Mellet have been in military detention since 20 and 26 April respectively. AI believes them to be prisoners of conscience and is calling for their immediate release.
