Jailed Peruvian ex-President Fujimori begins fifth trial _ charged with misusing public funds
Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, October 17, 2013 7:01 PM EDT
Former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori showed up for the start of his fifth trial with mussed hair and wearing a sweater over a T-shirt. He sat at the defendant's table taking his blood pressure and writing the measurements in a white notebook.
The session was suspended after defense lawyers asked for a change in judges and argued that Fujimori was in poor health.
His appearance was a sharp contrast to his 2009 trial for rights abuses, when he wore stylish suits, colorful ties and shiny shoes.
