Fujimori sentenced to 6 Years in Prison

This article from CNN discusses the conviction of former President Fujimori of Peru to his fourth prison term. He was convicted for ordering illegal wiretaps and bribing officials. Fujimori is an example of a leader who placed economic development above social development in Latin America, and his conviction signifies the trend of a return to rule of law rather than authoritarianism in the region.
