The Citizen (KZN) - - World -

Lima – Peru’s jailed ex-pres­i­dent Al­berto Fu­ji­mori was hos­pi­talised on Mon­day in Lima af­ter suf­fer­ing neu­ro­log­i­cal and lung prob­lems, his fam­ily doc­tor said.

Fu­ji­mori, 81, is serv­ing a 25-year jail sen­tence for or­der­ing two mas­sacres by death squads, in 1991 and 1992.

“[The for­mer pres­i­dent] is un­der eval­u­a­tion,” said his doc­tor, Alejandro Aguinaga. Al­though the for­mer leader’s lung “is not ven­ti­lat­ing per­fectly, it is un­der con­trol,” said Aguinaga.
