Peru`s Alberto Fujimori hospitalised for cancer
Lima: Former Peruvian president Alberto Fujimori, who is serving a 25-year jail term for corruption and rights abuses, was hospitalised due to a relapse in his tongue cancer, his doctor said.
"He will be hospitalised for three days to undergo a series of evaluations because his tongue is bleeding in an area where the lesion is cancerous," family doctor Alejandro Aguinaga told reporters.
The former president, father of losing presidential candidate Keiko Fujimori, had been bleeding for three weeks but "refused to go to hospital”, the doctor said.
"But we have seen his health fail. He was showing discomfort in the affected area and has lost weight, so we brought him to the hospital."
Fujimori, whose human rights charges are related to a 1990s crackdown on leftist guerrillas, was transferred to the National Institute of Neoplastic Diseases under tight security just four days after his daughter lost a presidential runoff against leftist Ollanta Humala.
In February, Fujimori underwent his fourth tongue cancer surgery in 14 years.
