Text size Aa Aa

Peru’s former president Alberto Fujimori – on trial for corruption – has been accused of choosing his own tabloid headlines during a re-election campaign in 2000.

An aide to an ex intelligence chief testified that he gave orders to buy favourable newspaper coverage.

Last week Fujimori and his government were cleared of carrying out a forced sterilisation campaign in the 1990s.
