Fujimori's lawyers deliver documents to Chilean court to prevent extradition
font size    

Former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori's defence team has delivered the final documents to the Chilean Supreme Court to prove he should not be extradited back to Peru.

Supreme Court Secretary Carlos Meneses said on Thursday that the documents were delivered on Wednesday night, moments before the deadline imposed by the judge handling the case, Orlando Alvarez.

Fujimori has repeatedly denied all the human rights and corruption charges filed against him in his country, saying they are politically motivated.

Alvarez closed the investigation into Fujimori's extradition in January and asked Peru to send its final documents first. Peru, which requested Fujimori's extradition in January 2006, delivered its final report and additional proofs last month.

The Supreme Court now has 20 days in which to deliver a verdict. The first ruling is expected to be handed down in May and can be appealed.

Fujimori arrived unexpectedly in Chile on Nov. 6, 2005 on a private flight from Japan. He is currently on bail but is barred from leaving Chile.

Fujimori, 68, fled Peru to Japan in 2000 and resigned by fax after a major corruption scandal erupted in his country.
