Fujimori, who denies the accusations, has been in prison since October last year pending trial over money laundering. She is the daughter of the country’s authoritarian ex-president Alberto Fujimori, who is also currently serving a 25-year sentence for human rights crimes and graft.

The decision comes as the country prepares to hold legislative elections on Jan. 26 after President Martín Vizcarra dissolved Congress amid a battle with lawmakers over his anti-graft campaign. Keiko Fujimori’s Popular Force party had held a majority in Congress before its dissolution.
