Spy Chief Gets 5 Years for Favors to Mistress

From Times Wire Reports

A Peruvian court sentenced former spy master Vladimiro Montesinos to five years on charges he arranged illegal favors for his former lover’s family.

Montesinos, accused of masterminding a giant corruption ring under ex-President Alberto Fujimori, said he “reserved the right” to appeal.

The case, in which Montesinos was charged with influence peddling, was one of at least 57 that Montesinos faces on a laundry list of charges, including money laundering, human rights violations and arms deals.
