Peru elections: Prosecutor requests jail for Fujimori

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Peru elections: Prosecutor requests jail for Fujimori” – below is their description.

A federal prosecutor in Peru has requested the detention of right-wing presidential candidate Keiko Fujimori.

It is in connection to her allegedly violating parole conditions in her continuing corruption case, but comes as the country awaits the final result of its close presidential runoff.

Leftist candidate Pedro Castillo holds a slender lead – and Fujimori is accusing him of fraud.

Al Jazeera’s Mariana Sanchez reports from Lima, Peru.
