dbo:abstract
  • Luis Giampietri Rojas (born 31 December 1940) is a retired admiral of the Peruvian Navy and a politician with the American Popular Revolutionary Alliance party. Giampietri ran successfully as Alan García's vice-presidential candidate in the 2006 Peruvian election, and was sworn in on 28 July 2006 and served until 28 July 2011. Giampietri was one of the naval officers implicated in the massacre on El Frontón, a prison island off the coast of Callao. The massacre took place during Alan García's administration, on June 18, 1986, after Shining Path prisoners staged an uprising at El Frontón and two other prisons. All the prisoners involved in the rebellion were killed, and Human Rights Watch claimed that evidence suggested that "no fewer than ninety" of the prisoners killed were victims of extrajudicial executions. On December 17, 1996, Giampietri was taken hostage by the Túpac Amaru Revolutionary Movement (MRTA) during the Japanese embassy hostage crisis. Key to the success of the rescue operation was the intelligence provided by Giampietri, admiral of the Peruvian Navy at the time and former commander of a special operations group. He received and distributed hundreds of bugged items in the building and himself communicated by radio with the Peruvian military. As of February 2007 Giampietri is working ahead of the CEAN or Extraordinary Commission for APEC, in Spanish initials. He has successfully arranged 127 international meetings so far. These meetings will be held in nine different major cities such as Lima (Peru's capital), Arequipa, Trujillo, Chiclayo, Iquitos, Piura, and Tumbes; and possibly Cusco. (en)
