Un sentido reconocimiento al CICR manifiesta el General de la Policía Nacional del Perú y actual congresista, Marco Miyashiro, al recordar los momentos difíciles que vivió en los casi cuatro meses de cautiverio junto con 71 personas que permanecieron como rehenes en la residencia del Embajador de Japón en el Perú hace 20 años. La crisis de los rehenes fue un hecho que marcó la historia en el Perú y que marcó su vida.
