CPJ dubbed the Fujimori regime an "infotatorship" because it was based more on surveillance and media manipulation than on outright physical repression. In fact, Fujimori was right to fear the press. On September 14, an independent cable station broadcast a video that appeared to show Fujimori's intelligence chief, Vladimiro Montesinos, bribing a former opposition member of Congress who had recently switched to Fujimori's coalition. Montesinos fled Peru after the video aired, and Fujimori resigned in disgrace. With new elections pending, Peru's interim government lost no time in purging the armed forces and judicial system of some Fujimori allies.
