LIMA, June 13 (Xinhua) -- Peruvian Prime Minister Jorge del Castillo said
on Wednesday that Alberto Fujimori, president of Peru from 1990 to 2000, would
have a fair trail in Chile, free of interference from the Peruvian government.
"The (Peruvian) government will accept Chilean court's rulings without
prejudgment, because the antidote to extradition is for politicians to stir
things up and appear that they are seeking a political persecution," Del
Castillo said in a press conference.
Monica Maldonado, prosecutor at Chile's Supreme Court, on Tuesday requested
that Fujimori, who arrived in Chile by surprise in November 2005, be extradited
Maldonado cited four cases of corruption, three of human rightsviolation,
and one of power abuse.
Supreme Court Judge Urban Marin will decide whether the former leader of
Peru should be extradited back home or not.
Both Peru and Fujimori can appeal the decision at Chile's Supreme Court.
Some human rights organizations and analysts accuse Peruvian President Alan
Garcia of acting slowly on the extradition.
Fujimori, currently under house arrest in Santiago, fled Peru for Japan in
November 2000, after a vast corruption network came to light that September.
The Japanese government ignored Peru's requests to extradite Fujimori in
2003 and 2004.
