Lori Berenson Ordered Freed From Prison...Again

Lori Berenson, who was granted parole and freed from prison, only to have the decision appealed and lose, resulting in her return to a Peruvian prison in August, has again been ordered freed.

She and her son should leave prison in a few days, but they won't be able to leave Peru. The prosecutor says he's going to appeal again. Her family's statement is here. They say the process could take another two to three months.

Peru is treating her like a ping pong ball. Enough already. The judge today said she should be released on parole because she has fulfilled d all necessary requirements. Send her home.

    I don't know if she wishes to leave Peru. (2.00 / 1) (#1)

    She certainly wants to leave prison but her husband is in Peru if I understand the situation.

    Her actions, though she claimed ignorance, put important peoples' lives in danger.  From what I read at the very best it was a willful ignorance.
