Another suspected murderer of journalist captured

(IPYS/IFEX) - On 28 November 2007, the police captured Nazario Coronel Ramírez, a.k.a. "Chamaya", the alleged perpetrator of the murder of journalist Miguel Pérez Julca, which took place in March 2007 in the city of Jaén, northeastern Peru.

Coronel Ramírez was detained in Saposoa, a town in the province of Huallaga, San Martín region. After a week of surveillance, 10 policemen sent from Jaén arrested the accused and transferred him back to Jaén. It appears that Coronel Ramírez had hidden in Saposoa since the murder.

The accused will be tried by the Second Specialised Criminal Court (Segundo Juzgado Especializado Penal de Jaén) in Jaén. The motives for the crime have yet to be determined.
