We want to express how happy we were to have had Lori and Salvador
home during this past holiday season.
Lori really enjoyed this opportunity to see relatives and old friends
and to introduce them to Salvador and we enjoyed each precious moment
playing with Salvador. In compliance with stipulations in the travel
permit, Lori and Salvador have now returned to Peru. Noncompliance
would have resulted in her arrest and imprisonment.
Although other foreign parolees of terrorism-related crimes have, in
the past, been permitted to visit their home countries on a regular
basis, negative reaction to Lori's visit resulted in the Peruvian
Congress passing a law that prohibits such foreign parolees from
traveling outside Peru in the future. Thus, Lori will not be able to
return home until her sentence is completed. We are, however,
grateful to have had at least this wonderful visit
All best wishes to you and your loved ones. May 2012 be a year of
joy and peace.
Rhoda and Mark Berenson
