LIMA: Juan Carlos Hurtado, a cabinet chief under ex-president Alberto Fujimori who is in prison for corruption and rights abuses surrendered to authorities after a decade in hiding, police said Wednesday.

Police have been looking for Hurtado since 2001 on charges of embezzlement, collusion and conspiracy to commit a crime for accepting $250,000 from an illegal source to finance his 1998 campaign for mayor of Lima.

His decision to surrender comes as Fujimori's daughter Keiko enters a presidential run-off campaign against nationalist Ollanta Humala.

Keiko Fujimori, 35, has campaigned heavily on her father's record of crushing the country's leftist insurgencies in the 1990s.
