Peruvian electoral council rejected Fujimori presidential bid

On January 10, 2006, the Peruvian National Election Council announced that former president Alberto Fujimori could not participate in the presidential election. The decision came after Fujimori registered as a presidential candidate, despite a Constitutional Court decision barring Fujimori from running for office until 2010. Fujimori fled to Japan in 2000 amidst corruption and human rights allegations for activities during his presidency. He was later extradited and convicted for approving the killing of 15 people in Lima's Barrios Altos neighborhood and the kidnapping and murder of 10 people from Lima's La Cantuta University.
