Newsroom Choose BBC World from the "Choose Your News" menu in my Newsroom for breaking news on Peru's Spy Chief in Exile and the current status of his US Visa. "... "The US embassy in Lima is revoking Mr Montesinos's visa today," US State Department spokesman Richard Boucher told reporters. "He no longer qualifies for the status that he was originally given the visa for." It is not clear when the visa was issued...." Exactly why was the visa issued? and what are they doing to free political prisoner Lori Berenson ? .
