Punishment

In April 2009, Fujimori was convicted of human rights violations and sentenced to 25 years in prison for his role in murders and kidnappings by the Grupo Colina death squad during his government's battle against leftist guerrillas in the 1990s. The verdict delivered by a three-judge panel marked the first time that an elected head of state has been extradited to his home country, tried, and convicted of human rights violations. Fujimori was specifically found guilty of murder, bodily harm, and two cases of kidnapping.[1][2][3][4][5]

In July 2009 Fujimori was sentenced to 7 and a half years in prison for embezzlement, after he admitted to giving $15 million out of the Peruvian treasury to the former intelligence service chief, Vladimiro Montesinos.[6] Two months later in a fourth trial, he pleaded guilty to bribery and was given an additional six-year term.[7] Under Peruvian law all the sentences must run concurrently, with a maximum length of imprisonment of 25 years.
