Peru: Anti-terrorism laws continue to fall short of international human rights standards (includes erratum)

This report discusses concerns about the present laws under the following headings: pre-trial and fair trial procedures; prisoners of conscience; and anti-terrorism provisions and the new constitution. An appendix lists the names of prisoners of conscience known to AI in Peru.
