Lima, October 4 (RHC)-- A Peruvian judge on Wednesday annulled a presidential pardon granted to former authoritarian leader Alberto Fujimori late last year and ordered him to be immediately arrested and returned to prison. 

Fujimori, who is now 80 years-old, was granted a pardon for human rights crimes by former president Pedro Pablo Kuczynski last December, three days after Kuczynski narrowly survived an impeachment vote with the help of Fujimori's supporters in Congress.
