Peru lawmakers attack Fujimori

LIMA, Peru (AP) - Outraged lawmakers dis-,
missed President Alberto Fujimori in a raucous ses-
slon of Congress late last night, refusing to accept
his resignation and declaring him morally unfit for
office.
Though a political humiliation for the once-power-
ful leader, the move did nothing to alter the course of
presidential succession with Congress President
Valentin Paniagua, a political moderate with opposi-
tion backing, still expected to replace Fujimori.
Paniagua's appointment was expected to ease the
political turmoil set off by a corruption scandal that
hastened Fujimori's departure.
After more than 12 hours of debate, lawmakers
voted 62 to nine, with nine abstentions to oust Fuji-
mori on grounds of "moral incapacity" as permitted
by Peru's constitution.
The result in the 120-seat Congress capped an
emotional debate in which Fujimori loyalists walked
out en masse moments before the vote began.
"The dictatorship has fallen!" Fujimori critics
chanted in Congress, unfurling the red-and-white
Peruvian flag from a balcony above the chamber
soon after the vote total flashed.

Falling into disgrace since his flight last week for
Japan, Fujimori said in Tokyo that he planned to stay
in his ancestral homeland "for a long time."
Fujimori submitted his resignation in a letter sent
Monday from Japan.
"The president acknowledges in his letter that he
committed errors, but he is not a criminal!" shouted
congressman Manuel Vara Ochoa, a Fujimori loyal-
ist, during the lengthy debate. "The president ... tire-
lessly traveled to the most far-flung communities of
the country, and those communities - we should
acknowledge - continue to love the president."
Most of the lawmakers attacked Fujimori for his
conduct. Congress did not contemplate impeach-
ment, a more complex and time consuming process.
But Peru's constitution allowed lawmakers to dismiss
the president for "moral incapacity.
Fujimori, known as "The Emperor" for his bull-
dozer style of government, has even lost the support
of some members of his own congressional coalition
over his decision to leave the country.
"The country has to say 'enough!' We have to say,
here there is clearly moral incapacity and lies,"
opposition congressman Henry Pease said. "We have

struggled against Fujimori for 10 years. We know his
successes, but I have to declare as morally unfit
someone who lies to the country, who doesn't dare
show his face."
Opposition lawmakers gained control of Peru's
legislature last week for the first time in eight years
when Paniagua was successfully voted Congress
president.
Paniagua was virtually guaranteed to succeed
Fujimori because both of Peru's vice presidents had
offered their resignations. Under the constitution, the
head of Congress is third in line to succeed a presi-
dent.
Fujimori apologized for the "confusion" he caused
by his resignation, but had little to say about why he
decided to step down.
"I want to go back (to Peru) someday, but I don't
know when," Fujimori told reporters at the Tokyo
hotel where he has been holed up. le insisted his
decision to stay in Japan had "nothing to do with the
scandal" that led to the collapse of his rule.
The 62-year-old Fujimori, who had declared a war
on corruption when he took office in 1990, also
denied having bank accounts abroad.

U.S. trade deficit reaches record $34.3 B
WASHINGTON - The U.S. trade deficit ballooned to a record S34.3 bil-
lion in September as America's already huge foreign oil bill got bigger and
helped push imports to an all-time high. The deficit with China climbed to
$8.7 billion, the largest ever recorded with any country.
September's trade gap was up a sharp 15 percent from an August imbalance
of S29.8 billion, the Commerce Department reported yesterday, well abov4
economists' expectations for a more modest deterioration to around $31 bil-
lion.
Exports slipped from their previous month's record as shipments of U.S.
cars and auto parts dropped sharply and various other exporters from farmers
to computer manufacturers suffered setbacks.
Among other negatives affecting the deficit, which covers trade in both
goods and services, was payment of nearly 5700 million by NBC for broad-
cast rights to the Olympic Games in Australia.
The Clinton administration insisted the big jump in the deficit did not sig
nal economic weakness and predicted that improving economies overseas will
make future months look better.
"While the deficit is too high, it does not reflect problems with the underly
ing domestic economy," Commerce Undersecretary Robert Shapiro told
reporters at a briefing on the trade figures.
