Former Hoover visiting fellow Gabriela Tarazona-Sevillano, formerly a criminal affairs prosecuting attorney in Peru, has taught for many years in the United States. The author of Sendero Luminoso and the Threat of Narcoterrorism, she presented her current research on the accountability of former heads of state for counterterrorism actions, including the case of former Peruvian president Alberto Fujimori of Peru, to students and scholars at the Stanford Law School. Professor Tarazona-Sevillano has had unprecedented access to trial materials and documents that were used to extradite Fujimori from Chile to Peru and to the proceedings of his trial in Peru by the Special Criminal Chamber of the Peruvian Supreme Court. Former president Fujimori is currently serving a twenty-five-year prison sentence in Peru.
