Peruvian ex-president Alberto Fujimori, sentenced to 25 years in prison, was transferred to a Lima clinic on Monday after breathing problems, his personal doctor Alejandro Aguinaga reported.
Fujimori, 81, had ventilation problems and a lot of weakness, which is why he required oxygenation in the prison he occupies in the Special Operations Division of the National Police, in the Ate district, Aguinaga told reporters .
However, the health staff who attended Fujimori in jail chose to request his transfer to the Centenario clinic, in the Pueblo Libre district, to request other tests such as a pulmonary tomography.
“It is under evaluation, which is happening at the pulmonary level, and there is little disarticulation when speaking,” Aguinaga told reporters outside the clinic.
Fujimori presented a “hypoxia (decrease in oxygen), which can paralyze the heart, and a” fibrillation (cardiac arrhythmia), between mild and moderate, “said the doctor of the exmandatario (1990-2000).
The former governor’s health problems occur a few days after his daughter Keiko Fujimori, founder of the Fuerza Popular party, returned to the Chorrillos women’s prison to serve a 15-month preventive prison order, as part of the investigation into against money laundering.
Precisely, the prosecutor José Domingo Pérez was conducting a raid on Monday at the party headquarters of Fuerza Popular to collect documentation on the process against Keiko Fujimori for the alleged contributions of the Brazilian company Odebrecht to his election campaigns of 2006 and 2011.
Former President Fujimori was sentenced to 25 years in prison for human rights abuses, as well as other minor sentences on corruption charges, and has expressed on his social networks that his family is subject to political persecution for the process against his eldest daughter.
