A Peruvian court ordered former President Alberto Fujimori to stand trial for the 1992 killings of six farmers, arguing that he lacks immunity despite a recent pardon for a different crime.

The National Criminal Court said the pardon granted to Fujimori in a human rights case for which he was serving a 25-year sentence did not apply to the murders of the group.

Prosecutors asked to try the ex-president and 22 others for the death squad killings. Fujimori, 79, was pardoned by the current Peruvian President, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, on December 24 on humanitarian grounds because of ill health.
