Alberto Moreno Rojas del Rio is a left-wing Peruvian politician. He is the general secretary of the Communist Party of Peru (Red Fatherland) and the president of the Movimiento Nueva Izquierda - New Left Movement.
During the 1980s, police found an arms arsenal in the residence of Moreno. It was largely believed to have been planted there by agents of the state. Moreno was sentenced to 18 years' imprisonment, but after a second trial he was released on the grounds on insufficient evidence. [*]
Moreno was a founding member of the Revolutionary Left Union (UNIR) and formed part of the leadership of the Izquierda Unida - United Left (IU).
