José Ugaz: Window of Opportunity for Reforms in Ukraine is Very Small

10 06 / 2016

In the last decade of the previous century, not only would Professor José Carlos Ugaz Sánchez-Moreno (Ugaz – father's surname, Sánchez-Moreno – mother's name) teach criminal law at the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru, but also he would take part in investigating prominent cases of corruption on a regular basis. Speaking about corruption in Peru, things were going well – there was a lot of it, but it would become so obvious at times that it had to be cut or trimmed at least for the sake of preserving decency. It so happened that Professor Ugaz undertook to investigate the cases on unlawful financial operations by Alfredo Zanatti in 1993, the financial pyramid CLAE in 1994, and the National Institute of Health & Family Welfare in 1997. He received such acclaim that Ugaz was invited by the reelected for a third term president, Alberto Fujimori, to investigate the corruption scandal that broke out after the presidential elections in 2000. The professor confirmed his reputation at this work – he gathered a group of investigators that initiated 200 court cases and provided irreproachable proof of the guilt not only of the head of Peruvian intelligence services, Vladimiro Lenin Ilich Montesinos, and 1500 of his companions, but also of President Fujimori himself. Montesinos, Fujimori, and another 120 high level corrupt officials promptly escaped the country, however they were returned to Peru later and put on trial. After receiving their judgments, they are now serving their sentences behind the bars.
