106th CONGRESS
  2d Session
S. CON. RES. 155

_______________________________________________________________________

                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Whereas democracy in Peru suffered a severe setback when the Government of Peru, 
        headed by President Alberto Fujimori, manipulated democratic electoral 
        processes and failed to establish the conditions for free and fair 
        elections--both for the April 9, 2000, election and the May 28, 2000, 
        run off--by not taking effective steps to correct the ``insufficiencies, 
        irregularities, inconsistencies, and inequities'' documented by the 
        Organization of American States (OAS) and other independent election 
        observers;
Whereas the absence of free and fair elections in Peru has further undermined 
        democracy in that country and constitutes a major setback for the 
        Peruvian people and for democracy in the Hemisphere; and
Whereas the fate of Peruvian democracy is a matter that should be decided upon 
        by the people of Peru: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), 
That (a) the Congress--
            (1) supports efforts toward restoring democracy in Peru, 
        including the shortening of the term of Alberto Fujimori, the 
        recent call for new elections, and the decision to deactivate 
        the National Intelligence Service (SIN);
            (2) is concerned that the same elements which have 
        systematically undermined democratic institutions in Peru and 
        which manipulated the electoral process in April and May 2000 
        remain in power and are in a position to manipulate the 
        upcoming electoral process; and
            (3) supports the efforts of Peruvian democratic civil 
        society to create the necessary conditions for free and fair 
        elections, including improving respect for human rights, the 
        rule of law, the independence and constitutional role of the 
        judiciary and the national congress, and freedom of expression 
        and of the independent media.
    (b) It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) it should be the policy of the United States to 
        actively support the aspirations of the democratic political 
        forces in Peru for a credible transition toward the full 
        restoration of democracy and the rule of law in Peru, headed by 
        leaders who are committed to democracy and who enjoy the trust 
        of the Peruvian people;
            (2) it should be the policy of the United States to work 
        with the international community, including the OAS, to assist 
        democratic forces in Peru in restoring democracy to their 
        country;
            (3) the Government of Peru should establish a fully 
        independent and credible election authority and should end all 
        interference with freedom of speech and the media;
            (4) the Government of Peru should fully implement the 
        recently enacted law deactivating the SIN and the United States 
        Government should oppose all elements of the Government of Peru 
        that continue to subvert Peruvian democracy; and
            (5) the United States Government should cooperate fully 
        with any credible investigation of narcotics or arms 
        trafficking by officials of the Government of Peru.

            Passed the Senate October 24 (legislative day, September 
      22), 2000.

            Attest:

                                                             Secretary.
