Fujimori, Alberto

From Longman Dictionary of Contemporary EnglishFujimori, AlbertoAlberto FujimoriFu‧ji‧mo‧ri, Al‧ber‧to /ˌfuːdʒɪˈmɔːri, ælˈbɜːtəʊ $ -ˈbɜːr-/  (1938–) the president of Peru from 1990 to 2000. At first he was popular because he dealt with terrorist groups in a very strong and determined way, but he later became very unpopular when many people believed that he was connected to people who used power in a dishonest or illegal way and was guilty of abusing (abuse) people's human rights (=treating them in a cruel or violent way). In 2000 he was forced to leave his position. He lived in exile until 2007, when the first of several trials for murder, kidnapping and other illegal acts began. He was found guilty in these trials and sent to prison.
