The former president of Peru, Francisco Morales Bermudez, who led the country in 1975-1980, died in Lima at the age of 101.
“Report” reports that his family has released information about this.
Remixio Morales, the son of the former head of state, told the RPP radio station that his father’s health was bad.
Morales, who was the chief of staff and minister of economy during the military dictatorship, took power in 1975. He headed the army and the council of ministers until 1980, when the president and congress were democratically elected.
Morales was convicted in absentia of his involvement in Operation Condor, a US-backed campaign of political repression and state terror in Italy.
In 2019, the former president of Peru was sentenced to life imprisonment in Rome, but he was not extradited and lived freely in his homeland.
