Scope and Contents note
File No. 560-03, Case of Manuel Ruben Abimael Guzmán Reinoso Y Otros. Talavera Elguera presiding. The Guzmán trial materials
include more than five thousand pages of minutes and other documents. After his capture he was tried under emergency laws
instituted by the Alberto Fujimori government, which included faceless tribunals and military courts. In 2003, Peru's Constitutional
Guarantees Court annulled these trials, per a mandate of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights calling for Peru to reform
its antiterrorist legislation. From September 2005 to October 2006 Guzmán underwent a retrial in a civilian court, La Sala
Penal Nacional or Peruvian National Criminal Tribunal, along with other SL leaders. Guzmán and his second in command (later
wife), Elena Yparraguirre, were sentenced to life in prison for terrorism, murder, and other crimes. This part of the collection
was acquired by Hoover visiting fellow Gabriela Tarazona-Sevillano of the Peruvian National Criminal Tribunal in Lima.
