Former President of Peru , Alberto Fujimori was freed from prison on 4 Jan on medical grounds. He was serving a 25-year sentence for corruption and abuse. After getting released from the hospital, he said that it was important for Peruvians to unite against violence and crime.
Alberto Kenya Fujimori Fujimori was the President of Peru from 28 July 1990 to 22 November 2000. In 2000, he was charged with corruption and so took refuge in Japan. He even tried to resign his presidency via fax, but his resignation was rejected by the Congress of the Republic Peru. They removed him by the process of impeachment. He was wanted in Peru on the charges of corruption and human rights abuses. Fujimori maintained a self-imposed exile until his arrest in Chile, in November 2005. He was extradited to face criminal charges in Peru in September 2007. Current President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski granted Fujimori a pardon because of his worsening heart condition. After his release from the hospital Fujimori, he is actively tweeting and asking the people to unite against the wrong. He said that he wanted Peru to become a nation with no grudges. Fujimori's doctors have said that he suffers from a serious heart condition and will have to follow a strict regime. President Kuczynski is being criticized for granting the pardon to Fujimori.
Fujimori was considered to be known as a proponent of poor. His rule was authoritarian in nature; and since his jail period, Peru has seen economic growth and peace but not at the streets. Street crime is the topmost concern of Peruvians. Fujimori calling for the same reflects this concern.
