Alberto Kenya Fujimori Fujimori (born July 28, 1938 in Lima) - Peruvian politician, son of Japanese immigrants, president of Peru from July 28, 1990 to November 17, 2000, dictator and organizer of death squads.

Fujimori won the election thanks to the populist movement program Change 90 under the slogan Vote for Chinese! (most Peruvians called him, though he was of Japanese origin), defeating the famous writer Maria Vargas in the second round. While performing the duties of the president, he implemented a radical savings program (the so-called Fujishock), which caused the growth of corruption. He stepped away from democratic methods, disbanding the national parliament and leading to new elections that resulted in a new constitution that allowed him to re-elected. He managed to significantly reduce the activities of left-wing guerrillas (Tupac Amaru's Lightning Movement and Revolutionary Movement), but the opposition and international circles accused him of autocracy and violations of human rights. The system of power that developed in Peru during the period of office of the president is described as fancyism.On April 7, 2009, after a trial lasting 15 months, he was sentenced to 25 years in prison for several dozen murders of oppositionists. On December 24, 2017, he was pardoned by the decision of President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski and transferred from prison to hospital. President Kuczynski justified his decision with Fujimori's health, however, it caused numerous controversies and protests
