Robust Web of Corruption: Peru's Intelligence Chief Vladimiro Montesinos Case Solution

In 1990, President Alberto Fujimori swept to power in Peru on a wave of public enthusiasm for his promised reforms. Really, over the next five years, Fujimori executed nothing less than a miraculous economic turnaround. He won the battle against terrorism within the country and played a pivotal role in war on drugs. Vladimiro Montesinos was on his side and Fujimori had immense international support. On the other hand, never made to any office that was official, Montesinos nonetheless became the virtual head of the intelligence service and had exceptional sway over Fujimori.

With Montesinos' behind the scenes support, Fujimori's government became ever more authoritarian, expanding executive influence over the judiciary, the military and the legislature. But with the television airing of a videotape in which he bribed an opposition representative, the reason for Montesinos' extraordinary effectiveness was radically exposed in September 2000. Through the help of such stark evidence, this note covers the rarely documented corruption in the country. It explains Montesinos’ meteoric rise to influence along with the  mechanisms and protocols of fraud and bribery. HKS Case Number 1722.0
