Fujimori “will accept” extradition ruling


Peruvian ex-president Alberto Fujimori, who is confined to Chile awaiting extradition procedures for corruption and crimes against humanity he is alleged to have committed while in office, today stated that “without doubt” he will accept the court’s judgment, whatever it may be.

“Of course I will accept it, without doubt… but I cannot get ahead of myself, I can’t speculate,” he said in a statement broadcast on Frecuencia Latina TV.

The ex-president, who has been forbidden to leave Chile since his arrest there in November 2005, said that he is waiting patiently for the Chilean court’s decision, and reiterated that he has no plans to attempt to flee or seek refuge in the Japanese embassy in Santiago.

After fleeing the Peru in 2000 and renouncing his presidency by fax, he remained in voluntary exile in Japan where, as a Japanese citizen, he was immune to extradition.
