Laura gets 4 years, will sue Peru

121705_tve-01.jpgOn Monday, a Peruvian court found talk show host Laura Bozzo guilty of various corruption charges and sentenced her to four years in prison. La Bozzo, who already served a house arrest sentence of three years says she’s appealing and will sue the government of Peru before the Interamerican Civil Rights Court:

“There is a conspiracy against me”, she angrily told local television station Canal 9. “It’s been proven that the court reached an injust resolution, and that is why I am going to sue them before the Interamerican Court.” The talk show host is relying on a law of the Association of American States(OEA) according to which if there is a not a friendly agreement between two parties (in this case Bozzo and the Peruvian government) and it is found that a right has been violated, the Court can give a recommendation.”

According to People en Español, while Laura won’t actually be imprisoned, her sentence will force her to not leave her home without the prior authorization of a judge, and appear before a court every three months.
