Peruvian committee demands Fujimori's extradition
The Peruvian Refugee Committee (PRC) announced here Sunday that it will stage a protest in Santiago Tuesday to demand the extradition of former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori.

"We are going to demand that the (Supreme) court revises judge Orlando Alvarez's sentence, (and make people) aware of the court's responsibility before thousands of victims," the president of the PRC Raul Paiba said.

Chile's Supreme Court is soon to rule on Peru's appeal against judge Alvarez's July 11 decision to reject Lima's extradition request. In Peru, Fujimori has been charged with committing 10 corruption crimes and two human rights violation offenses during his 1990-2000 presidency.

Judge Alvarez's ruling went against the recommendation of Chile's Attorney General Monica Maldonado, who said Fujimori must be extradited.

In November 2005, Fujimori arrived unexpectedly in Chile on a private flight from Japan. He is now being held under house arrest in the Chicureao neighborhood on the outskirts of Chile's capital Santiago.
