Former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori has undergone medical tests in Chile in preparation for extradition to his home country.
He is expected to be sent back in the next few hours, although no precise time has been given for the departure.

Hours earlier Chile's Supreme Court approved the repatriation of Mr Fujimori, 69, who faces charges of human rights abuses and corruption.

The ex-leader has fought extradition since leaving Japan in 2005.

...

Peruvian Prime Minister Jorge del Castillo said his government would not politicise the case and pledged that Mr Fujimori would be given a fair trial and treated with dignity.

The human rights charges against the former Peruvian leader date back to the early 1990s, when his government was allegedly responsible for killing civilians in the fight against Shining Path Maoist guerrillas.

One of the alleged massacres was at a poor neighbourhood in Lima in 1991 in which 15 people died.

The second at a dormitory at La Cantuta University in 1992 in which one teacher and nine students were abducted and killed.


It's been long overdue that Fujimori returns. Though I'm surprised that he won't be extradited on charges related to the crimes that were commited by his confidant Vladimiro Montesinos during his administration.
