Alberto Fujimori born
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On July 28, 1938, Alberto Fujimori was born in Lima, Peru. Fujimori became President of Peru exactly 62 years later on July 28, 1990 and served until November 22, 2000, when he fled to Japan amid allegations of corruption and human-rights violations. Fujimori was widely credited with restoring the Peru's economy and national security during his time in office, but was convicted in 2007 of ordering an illegal search and seizure and sentenced to 6 years in prison. In 2009, he was also convicted in a separate trial of human rights violations stemming from his war against domestic terrorists during his time in office.
