Peru: Fujimori must undergo cardiac surgery, according to INPE | News | ANDEAN

The imprisoned former Peruvian president Alberto Fujimori (1990-2000) must undergo “an invasive cardiac procedure” which will require intensive care. For this purpose, he will be taken to a local clinic, the National Penitentiary Institute (INPE) said Monday.

In a recent statement, the INPE said Fujimori had to be taken from Barbadillo prison in Lima to the Centenario clinic because he was certified that his health had deteriorated.

The specialists in geriatrics and cardiology of the said medical establishment decided to admit him to intensive care, as well as to carry out a series of tests and analyzes.

Doctors told INPE that Fujimori “must undergo an invasive heart procedure which requires the availability of an intensive care bed.”

“As part of his private insurance coverage, detainee Fujimori will be taken to another local clinic, always respecting security protocols,” it was reported.

The INPE indicated that it would inform relatives of the measures taken by specialists, “in accordance with the usual procedures during emergency medical evacuations of persons deprived of their liberty”.

In addition, the prison will take the necessary measures to ensure that the former president receives medical treatment.

As is known, Fujimori is currently serving a 25-year prison sentence for the Barrios Altos and La Cantuta cases, which involved human rights violations, in addition to the kidnappings of a journalist and a businessman in 1992. .

This sentence was later ratified by the Peruvian courts, which determined that Fujimori was responsible for crimes such as capital homicides, assassinations and serious injuries in the Barrios Altos, La Cantuta and Army Intelligence Service cases.

The sentence was unanimously upheld by the Supreme Court on January 3, 2010.
