Having myself browsed these same AI resources (you may remember I posted
excerpts last time we discussed the Peruvian situation), I recall no documented
instances from AI about "atrocities" by the PCP.  Rather, there was plenty
of actual documented info about government terror, w/ empty "condemnations"
of the armed opposition, not providing specific examples.

What is a specific example of a PCP "atrocity" -- preferably from a source other
than the Fujimori dictatorship?
