Fujimori was hospitalized on Friday due to oxygen saturation issues, according to his lawyer, César Nakazaki.
“The board of cardiologists will decide the next steps in the next few hours,” Keiko Fujimori said. Without explaining further, she added that she had given “consent for other types of measures” and that her father had also given consent.
Fujimori, a controversial former president, led Peru from 1990 to 2000. In 2009, a special supreme court tribunal sentenced him to 25 years in prison for authorizing the operation of a death squad responsible for killing civilians.
In separate trials, Fujimori was also found guilty of breaking into the home of a former spy chief to steal incriminating videos, taking money from the government treasury to pay the spy chief and authorizing illegal wiretaps and bribing lawmakers and journalists.
Also a politician, his daughter Keiko ran for president in 2021. She came in second to current President Pedro Castillo, who was sworn in on July 28.
