Peru's Ex-President BEGS From Hospital, Returning Me To Prison ‘A Death Sentence’

Peru's ex-president Alberto Fujimori said from his hospital bed on Thursday that a return to prison would be a "death sentence," the day after a court revoked a pardon for crimes against humanity.
Fujimori, 80, addressed a plea to Peru's President Martin Vizcarra and the South American country's judiciary in a video recorded at his bedside.

"Please do not kill me. If I return to prison my heart will not support it. It is too weak to go through the same thing again. Don't sentence me to death. I can give no more."

A court on Wednesday annulled a presidential pardon for Fujimori, ending more than nine months of freedom granted under the shock pardon issued by a previous president in December.

However, immediately after his re-arrest Fujimori was admitted to a clinic with heart problems.


His doctor, Alejandro Aguinaga, told reporters he experienced a drop in blood pressure and an accelerated heart beat - the same problems for which he has been hospitalised in the past.

"He is already considered a prisoner," Interior Minister Mauro Medina told Chile's RPP radio.

"He is expected to leave the clinic to take him to the penitentiary," the minister said.

Fujimori, a Peruvian of Japanese descent, has been living in Lima but has been hospitalised four times since his release last December.
