Peru demands U.S. extradite Fujimori's brother
font size    

Peru has demanded the United States extradite former President Alberto Fujimori's younger brother to face charges in Peru, Peruvian media reported on Thursday.

Pedro Fujimori is charged with misappropriating government funds and conspiracy under his brother's 1990-2000 administration, Peru's prosecutors said.

The prosecutors said following his return from the United States in 1993, Pedro, who was in charge of Japan's donations to the Peruvian government, transferred a large amount of Japanese donations, up to some 30 million U.S. dollars, to his personal accounts in the United States.

The government led by Fujimori, 69, was brought down in November 2000 by the bribery convictions of his presidential adviser and national intelligence agency chief Vladimiro Montesinos.

Fujimori, who holds dual citizenship of Peru and Japan, was in exile in Japan from 2000 to 2005. He is now in Chile fighting extradition to Peru on corruption and human rights abuse charges.
