LIMA (Reuters) – Peru’s former President Alberto Fujimori has been taken from prison to a local hospital by ambulance to undergo treatment for abnormally low blood pressure, Fujimori’s doctor Alejandro Aguinaga told local broadcaster RPP on Saturday.

Fujimori, 79, is serving a 25-year sentence for graft and human rights crimes. He is a deeply divisive figure in Peru. While many consider him a corrupt dictator, others credit him with ending an economic crisis and bloody leftist insurgency during his 1990-2000 term.
