The judicial process against Peruvian former President Alberto Fujimori resumed Monday after a two-week break, Peruvian Supreme Prosecutor Avelino Guillen said.

Fujimori knew the paramilitary group Colina would develop into an annihilation squad from the time of its creation, Guillen said as he began reading the probes against Fujimori.

Guillen requested the reading of the document that records Fujimori's message to the nation on Feb. 7, 1991, which "serves as evidence for the parallel strategy of the National Intelligence Service (SIN)."

He said this document is important for the Prosecutor's Office because "it proves that Fujimori was aware of the SIN's actions in detail."

He added that the annihilatory actions were plotted by the SIN and Fujimori knew about the parallel strategy from the beginning of the practice.

The Colina group is the alleged perpetrator of two massacres that claimed 25 lives during the actions known as the Barrios Altos in 1991 and La Cantuta University in 1992.

Fujimori, who is alleged to have ordered the kidnapping of a businessman and a journalist in April 1992, is accused of crimes against humanity. He could be sentenced to 30 years in prison if convicted, said Guillen.

The reading of the probes is the last phase of the trial, which began in December 2007.
