PERU: Maxima Acuna wins Supreme Court Case - GOOD NEWS

Amnesty International New Zealand; May 23, 2017

Máxima Acuña wins Supreme Court case
After five years fighting unfounded criminal charges in Peru, Máxima is free. Having withstood harassment, attacks, eviction attempts by the Peruvian National Police, and charges of "land invasion", the Supreme Court of Justice ruled that there was no reason to pursue this groundless trial.

Amnesty International visited Máxima in February, delivering all 150,000 of your solidarity letters as part of Write for Rights. She said, "Keep on supporting, helping, and not just me, OK? There are many women suffering from this kind of ill treatment, all kinds of abuse. Support them all."
