[JURIST] Japan said Saturday that it would examine Peru's latest request for the extradition of former Peruvian president Alberto Fujimori, now living in self-imposed exile in Japan. The extradition request cites embezzlement and forgery accusations against the one-time Peruvian leader of Japanese descent. It also details Fujimori's alleged role as chief of a criminal organization during his presidency from 1990-2000. The organization, known as the Colina group, has been responsible for the murders of 25 people. This is Peru's second extradition bid. Fujimori obtained Japanese citizenship in 2000, and Japan has hestitated to extradite him without a formal extradition treaty. Fujimori has denied the charges against him and may run for re-election on Peru's 2006 presidential ballot. AFP has more. Fujimori offers his perspective on the charges and proceedings on his own website (primarily in Spanish).
