Vladimiro Montesinos was the henchman of the former president of Peru, who is now in exile in Japan. His life can be compared to a thriller with a touch of geopolitics. He was involved in money laundering and the trafficking of arms and drugs. He also had dealings with the guerrillas and the CIA and he practised corruption and blackmail. He directed all these illegal operations from his underground bunker full of audio equipment aimed at compromising those, the shadow master of Peru wanted to buy. In September 2000 the release of one the videos -he taped himself- caused the fall of this man who was called the Andean Rasputin. It also caused the collapse of the corrupted regime of Fujimori who had been in power for ten years.
