Francisco Sagasti does not support the MRTA: he asked for signatures...

Hours before Francisco Sagasti was elected as Peru’s interim president, circulated misleading posts on social networks, who accused him of having requested “autographs” from two members of the terrorist organization Movimiento Revolucionario Túpac Amaru (MRTA).

“He does not deny it. Francisco Sagasti asked for autographs from leaders terrorists Néstor Cerpa Cartolini and Rolly Rojas who took over the Japanese embassy ”, read a publication with more than 1,000 interactions. In addition, it was accompanied by a composition in which the “M” of the purple party was used in the MRTA acronym.

However, we consider these posts to be misleading. That is to say, misrepresent real facts to draw a false conclusion. The post virals omit the context necessary in which the performance of the researcher and center politician took place.

Indeed, Francisco Sagasti He has never denied that he requested the signature of the terrorists Néstor Cerpa Cartolini and Rolly Rojas, alias ‘Árabe’. What the publications do not say is that the current interim president was held by the MRTA for three days in the Japanese embassy. In other words, he was also —with less fatal consequences— a victim of terrorism.

“It is not a transcendent, I wrote this and it is published in Caretas (10 full pages) of ‘El diary de un hostage’, the December 26, 1996”, Explained Sagasti skyscraper to the journalist Jaime Chincha in an interview for RPP Noticias at the beginning of the year. “What actually happened —and there are many witnesses— (…) is that when we were about to leave those of us who were only there for three days —without knowing that this was going to last 126 days— I said: ‘Wow, —and it I said it to number two of these terrorists – he has kept me locked up for three days and, at least, I want an acknowledgment of this in his handwriting. Are you willing to give it to me? ‘ And he said: ‘Yes’ (…). And what I did was cut out a cardboard that said ‘Fuji’ (…). So, I found it interesting that in that carton of Fuji mineral water acknowledge in handwriting, these two gentlemen, who had us kidnapped. “ He also declared that he was “all the time” an opponent of the terrorism.

From Tuesday, November 16 of that year to Thursday, November 19, the then former World Bank official had been detained against his will. On the third day, after 7 p.m., the also former United Nations consultant asked the two terrorists for proof of the facts.

“I take this opportunity to ask for your autograph on my ‘hostage diploma’ which has the MRTA operation as its title,” he would later write for Caretas, according to La Nación. El País also recorded that news.


In 1996, the now acting president of the Republic, Francisco Sagasti Hochhausler, he did request signatures from two terrorists MRTA, as he himself has told in several interviews. But that doesn’t make him a terrorist sympathizer. We rate the post as misleading.
