[JURIST] Expressing frustration over slow extradition processes, Peruvian state attorney Nelly Calderon said Sunday that the
International Court of Justice should be called upon to take the case against former President Alberto Fujimori. Fujimori fled Peru for Japan in 2000 and various requests for extradition have failed. Fujimori is accused of corruption and of responsibility in the deaths of 25 people during his presidency. JURIST'S Paper Chase has background on Peru's previous extradition attempts.
