Jaime Castillo Petruzzi

Jaime Castillo Petruzzi, known as El Toro (The Bull) is a Chile terrorist and financier who worked with the Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement during the internal conflict in Peru.

Along with a few others, he conformed a group of Chileans who carried out special operations for the terrorist organization. Petruzzi kidnapped many prominent businessmen during this period, who were kept in carceles del pueblo (people's jails) and usually exchanged for money to buy modern weaponry and equipment.

Petruzzi was detained in 1993 and sentenced to life in prison for betrayal in the high-security Yanamayo prison in Puno, Peru.
