on the evening of october 4th, local time, former peruvian president alberto Fujimori, who was hospitalized, underwent an emergency heart stent operation for about 50 minutes for a sudden myocardial infarction and is in intensive care.

Fujimori’s eldest daughter, peruvian congressman Fujimori, confirmed the news to the media, and revealed that the main cause of Fujimori’s heart attack is low oxygen saturation and severe blood vessels. she also said fujimori has a serious heart problem and is in a very fragile condition.

on the night of october 1st, local time, fujimori was rushed to hospital for treatment because of low blood oxygen concentration in his body.

Fujimori, 83, a controversial peruvian politician who served as president from 1990 to 2000, has been accused of leading to widespread corruption, weak rule of law and forced to resign and go into exile in japan at the end of his term in office after years of hard work against the rebels. Fujimori was arrested in chile in 2005 and extradited to peru two years later.

between 2007 and 2015, he was convicted of abuse of power, bribery, murder, kidnapping and crimes against humanity in violation of international law on five counts, with a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison. since his imprisonment, he has repeatedly gone to prison for surgery and applied for amnesty for illness. as Fujimori and his family still have influence in peruvian politics, news of Fujimori’s health and the state of his sentence has attracted local attention.
