Peru's vice president-elect says ex-leader Alberto Fujimori may be moved to real prison
LIMA, Peru - Peru's vice president-elect says the incoming government is studying whether to move disgraced ex-President Alberto Fujimori to a real prison from the police station where he has been jailed in spacious comfort since 2008.
Omar Chehade's comment Monday comes a day after leftist Ollanta Humala narrowly defeated Fujimori's daughter, Keiko, in the presidential runoff election.
During the campaign, Humala complained that Alberto Fujimori was running his daughter's campaign from the police station and receiving frequent visitors. He is the only prisoner in Peru living in such conditions.
Alberto Fujimori is serving a 25-year sentence for authorizing death squad killings and corruption.
Chehade was among the prosecutors who tried Fujimori for corruption.
