Peruvian Court Upholds Decision to Grant Lori Berenson Parole

Jan. 24 (Bloomberg) -- A Peruvian court upheld an earlier decision to grant U.S. citizen Lori Berenson parole, dealing a blow to the government’s efforts to return her to jail.

The court rejected the Peruvian government’s appeal of a Nov. 5 decision to grant Berenson parole, the court said in a statement dated Jan. 18.

Berenson, 41, was first paroled in May, though the government successfully appealed the decision. She was paroled again Nov. 8 after Judge Jessica Leon said the New York native has served more than three quarters of her 20-year sentence for helping plan an attack on Peru’s Congress.

The government disagreed with the way the judge calculated how much time Berenson had served.
