LIMA, Peru (AP) _ Peru President Alberto Fujimori said Wednesday he was not intimidated by a U.S. Senate resolution that accuses his government of manipulating Peru's judiciary and electoral boards and intimidating the press.

``We are not intimidated, and nor will it have any effect,'' said Fujimori.

The bipartisan resolution, unanimously approved on Monday, warns that Peru's ``systematic abuse'' of law and threats to democracy could undermine confidence of foreign investors'' and the Andean nation's ``creditworthiness.''

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a similar nonbinding resolution in October.

The Senate resolution instructs U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright to share the criticisms with the Organization of American States, and to multilateral lenders like the Inter-American Development Bank and the World Bank.

Fujimori insists the U.S. Congress' criticism is based on misinformation, and his supporters have decried the resolutions as interference in Peru's sovereign affairs.

The resolution says Fujimori's administration manipulated the court system and National Election Board so that he can seek a third term in next April's general election.

Fujimori has not yet announced whether he will run, but his majority-controlled Congress has taken a series of actions to circumvent a constitutional ban on his candidacy.

The resolution cites allegations that Fujimori's National Intelligence Service has orchestrated a smear campaign in the tabloid press against opposition journalists.

It also criticizes Peru for stripping Israeli native Baruch Ivcher of his Peruvian citizenship after his television station ``revealed torture by Army Intelligence Service officers'' and ``the systematic wiretapping of journalists, government officials and opposition politicians.''
