. . . Keiko Fujimori . . .

Keiko Sofía Fujimori Higuchi was born on 25 May 1975 in the Jesús María district of Lima, the capital of Peru.[1][2] Fujimori’s parents are Japanese Peruvians; her father is former President of PeruAlberto Fujimori, who was elected in the 1990 Peruvian general election, and her mother is Susana Higuchi.[3] In addition, Fujimori would come to have three siblings: Kenji Gerardo (born May 1980), Hiro Alberto (born December 1976) and Sachi Marcela (born March 1979).[4] For primary and secondary education, Keiko Fujimori and her siblings attended Peruvian Catholic School Colegio Sagrados Corazones Recoleta [es] (Recoleta Academy of the Sacred Hearts).[4]

After her father was elected president in 1990, he was reportedly approached by the military to implement Plan Verde; a plan for Peru to adopt a neoliberal economy, to ethnically cleanse vulnerable populations and to establish control of the media.[5][6][7][8][9] With backing of the military, he later led a self-coupwhen he dissolved congress in 1992, violating the independence of the judiciary and the press, and began persecuting opponents.[10][11] Subsequently, with the approval of a new constitution, the president could be re-elected in the following elections.[12] Throughout her father’s presidency, the government committed multiple human rights violations[13] that included forced sterilizations and extrajudicial killings[14][15] and its response to the internal conflict in Peru resulted in the deaths of at least 69,000 people.[3] It was also alleged that Fujimori embezzled between US$600 million and US$2 billion through graft.[16][17][18] Such allegations placed Fujimori seventh in the list of money embezzled by heads of government active within 1984–2004.[17][18] Alberto Fujimori’s revitalization of the economy of Peru and defeat of Shining Path, however, has resulted in continued support from some Peruvians, with the former president having a divisive legacy overall in the country.[3][19]

After her father’s coup, Fujimori graduated from secondary school and travelled to the United States in 1993 to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at Stony Brook University.[20]
