Susana Higuchi, ex wife of fugitive Alberto Fujimori recently revealed
important information concerning the management of the Japanese donations during the first government of Fujimori to the national justice.
Higuchi delivered copies of 2 documents, one to the Fiscal Ibañez and one to the vocal Lecaros, referring to the statements given by Fujimori’s sisters, Rosa and Juana. In these documents Rosa mentions that once the Peruvian Japanese Association had sold the donated clothes for US$120,000, they only forwarded half of the income to Fujimori.
After 5 months of being the President of the Foundation "Peruvian Child" she received many letters from concerned donators in Japan questioning what had happened to the donations send to Fujimori. Higuchi claims that she never received any cheques, money or donations and therefore asked Fujimori for explanations. It later turned out that all illegal sales had been made in the name of the Committee of Ladies of Government Palace.
Due to the situation on December 12th 1991, Higuchi asked authorities tointerrogate Juana Fujimori, who later accepted to testify. Juana admitted that she was a member of the Support Committee of Government
Palace and that she worked with the authorization of Fujimori.
