Riera detailed that Fujimori was taken to the EsSalud hospital in Ate where they were able to stabilize him momentarily and later he was admitted to the Centenario clinic, where the family doctors are and will be able to treat him more effectively.

“Obviously it had to be a very high decompensation, so that at dawn he could be transferred to a State hospital. We hope to have a more specialized comment from the doctors in charge of his case”, explained the lawyer.



The lawyer added that the former president is in a very delicate state of health, so “we are trying to fight for him to be released.”

He also recalled that whoever directed Peru during the 1990s has a history of heart attack, other comorbidities and underlying diseases that increase their health risk as they increase in severity over time.

Weeks ago, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights ruled against the former president, for which the State of Peru will have to refrain from implementing the Constitutional Court’s provision that ordered Fujimori’s release from prison.

The former president is serving a sentence for several crimes committed during his term, including kidnappings, murders, and corruption.
