 Alberto Fujimori - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fujimori was credited with restoring macroeconomic stability after the tumultous presidency of Alan García and bringing peace to Peru after many years of domestic turmoil, but he was widely criticised for his authoritarian leadership style, particularly after the auto-coup of 1992.
In response to this, Fujimori mounted an auto-coup (in Spanish: autogolpe; sometimes called the Fuji-coup, or fujigolpe) — that is, a coup d'état against his own government, on April 5 1992.
Critics also point out that to achieve the defeat of terrorist cells in various towns and cities the Peruvian military indulged in widespread human rights abuses, and the vast majority of the victims were poor highland campesinos caught in the crossfire between military and the insurgents.
