Peruvian police dispatched a plane Friday night to take former President Alberto Fujimori back from Chile to stand trial on human rights violations and corruption charges.
The plane, with Peru's General Director of National Police David Rodriguez and four Interpol officers and doctors aboard, is expected to arrive in Santiago early Saturday morning.
Keiko Fujimori, daughter of the 69-year-old ex-president, was waiting for his arrival together with his supporters at Lima's international airport.
The move came just hours after Chile's Supreme Court ordered Fujimori's extradition. The final verdict was taken by judges Alberto Chaigneau, Jaime Espoz, Hugo Dolmestch, Ruben Ballesteros and Nibaldo Segura.
Friday's ruling overrode the first verdict on July 11 by Judge Orlando Alvarez which rejected Peru's extradition request.
The Peruvian government had requested extradition of the former president for his role in a massacre during a prison riot in Lima in 1992.
Analysts said the request, based on the prison massacre in which at least 42 inmates were killed, would prevent Fujimori from escaping to Japan after his trial in Chile.
Fujimori, Peru's president from 1990 to 2000, fled Peru in 2000 amid a corruption scandal. He arrived in Chile in November 2005, ending a five-year exile in Japan.
Before the extradition, he was under house arrest in an exclusive condominium on the outskirts of the Chilean capital.
During his stay in Chile, Fujimori holding both Japanese and Peruvian nationalities unsuccessfully ran for the Japanese Senate.
