Lima, Peru - After 15 years in prison in Peru, on Jan. 24 U.S. progressive activist Lori Berenson finally won her freedom. Berenson had been jailed in Peru since November 1995. She was initially released from prison last May, only to be rejailed three months later as Peruvian judges went back and forth about whether to continue to imprison her.

In the Jan. 24 parole ruling, a three judge panel rejected an appeal by the Peruvian State Prosecutor that would have returned Lori to prison. The panel reaffirmed the decision of the original judge granting Berenson parole.
