Rights lawyer confident Fujimori will get 30 years
(09-24 10:32)

A prominent rights activist said he was convinced former president Alberto Fujimori would be sentenced to 30 years prison for human rights violations, as the trial of Peru's ex-strongman enters its final stage.

"There should be no doubt that what has been presented at trial is more than enough to issue a ruling that sentences him to 30 years in prison,'' said Ronald Gamarra, head an umbrella organization for rights groups.

Fujimori, 70, faces charges that he knew of or gave orders to an army death squad that killed 25 people in two massacres, in 1991 and 1992.

Gamarra, who represents relatives of the massacre victims, said a ruling would probably come in early December.
