Lori Berenson: MIT Graduate in Peruvian Prison

March 04, 1999

As Attorney General Janet Reno yesterday wrapped up an international conference of Latin American justice ministers in Lima, Peru, Amy Goodman was able to conduct the first-ever media interview with Lori Berenson. Berenson is a 29-year old American serving a life sentence in Peru after she was tried and sentenced by a secret military court for treason. Amy was able to enter the prison together with a U.S. human rights delegation. She filed this report last night from Lima.
