Chile high court ordered Fujimori extradition to Peru
Clay Flaherty at 12:00 AM ET

On September 21, 2007, the Supreme Court of Chile ruled that former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori should be extradited to Peru to face human rights charges. Fujimori served as the president of Peru from 1990 to 2000, and was accused of supporting death squads, violating human rights and corruption. He was extradited to Peru the following day and was ultimately convicted of committing human rights abuses in April 2009 and corruption in July 2009.
