Blinky Ishihara's Japanese citizen buddy goes to the pokey

Blinky is blinking more rapidly today as news comes that his old friend and comrade, Alberto Ishimori, has been convicted of crimes against humanity and sentenced to 25 years in the slammer:

Former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori was found guilty of mass murder and kidnapping Tuesday and was sentenced to 25 years in prison, a rare instance of a former head of state being found guilty in his own country on human rights charges. LA Times.

Now how can this be explained? Is this criminal the usual dangerous foreigner with the criminal DNA common to the species, or is he Japanese? Will the Japanese media refer to him as a Japanese citizen? We'll have to watch for this---I missed the noon news. And what will ol' Blinky say? Talking about Mr. Fujimori will be "interesting".
