- 'President Brandishes His Own Terror Threat' (Inter Press Service, Ángel Páez) "President Alan García announced he would publish a list of the names of 1,800 "freed terrorists", so that people might recognise them and report them if they were participating in conspiracies against the state. "I’m going to give the country the list of the 1,800 terrorists so everyone knows exactly who their neighbours are, and what each of the freed prisoners is doing," said García. "We can’t be so naïve as to believe they have completely changed, and that just because they have sworn on the Bible that they are democrats, they really are." García made no distinctions between those who had served their sentences, those who were acquitted for lack of evidence, and those who were pardoned because their trials were deemed invalid."
