Report from the 16 November 2006 plenary assembly of the 12th IACC:
Extradition of Alberto Fujimori
| || |
The 12th International Anti-Corruption Conference, held in Guatemala City from 15 to 18 November 2006 with more than a thousand participants from over 100 countries, urged the judicial authorities and the government of Chile to accept Peru’s request for the extradition of the former Peruvian President, Alberto Fujimori.
Since 2003, Peru has sought to return Fujimori to Peruvian soil. Extensive evidence justifies the international community’s insistence that Chile ensure that Fujimori answer the serious allegations of corruption and human rights abuses levelled against him.
The full assembly of the 12th International Anti-Corruption Conference called on the Chilean authorities to extradite Fujimori to Peru as quickly as due process allows, so that justice may be served. Fujimori’s extradition will send an unequivocal signal that politicians will be held accountable for their actions.
