Chilean Prosecutor Recommends Fujimori Extradition

On June 7, the Chilean Supreme Court’s chief prosecutor recommended the extradition of former Peruvian president Alberto Fujimori, who is charged in Peru with murder, torture, and forced disappearances, as well as with multiple charges of corruption and bribery. In 2005, Human Rights Watch released a report that documented Fujimori’s abuses and built a case against him. Since then, we have worked in both Chile and Peru to publicly dispel the notion put forward by Fujimori’s attorneys that there is no evidence of wrongdoing by Fujimori. Using arguments and evidence first put forward by Human Rights Watch, Chile’s prosecutor recommended extradition on all five of the criminal cases documented in our report. As a Chilean Supreme Court justice considers extradition, we will campaign for Fujimori to face trial in Peru.
