Fujimori Will Receive Unemployment Pension


The amount the Ex-President would receive equals around $488 US dollars per month.

Peru’s recently-pardoned Ex-President, Alberto Fujimori, will receive an unemployment pension as an Ex-Professor and Headmaster of the Universidad Nacional Agraria, informed Cooperativa.

Fujimori will receive a pension of about $488 US dollars (about 1,570 soles), whose process for payment is already taking place, said a local news to Cooperativa.

It was in June 2017 when the Ex-President filed for the reactivation of his severance pension, which was suspended in 2001, a year after he resigned from his presidency in Peru. However, it was around that time that the process for violation of human rights began to take place against Fujimori, which ended in 2009 when he was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Additionally, the anti-corruption prosecutor, Amado Enco, solicited information to identify which resources that belong to the Ex-President can be seized to cover the civil repairs of 15.7 million dollars he still owes the Peruvian State, says Cooperativa.

Nevertheless, this pension cannot be seized for this purpose because it doesn’t reach five units of procedural reference.

Fujimori’s presidential pardon was granted on December of last year, and many of his victim’s families, as well as several congressmen, are asking for it to be revoked since to them it doesn’t meet the necessary standards. Currently, the International Court of Human Rights is evaluating the case to take the needed actions.
