Japan?s interference in Fujimori case is unacceptable


Vice-president David Waisman considers that Japan’s request about the situation of the prisoner Alberto Fujimori to Chile is an interference.

"It is an unacceptable interference, it is immoral, should Japan interfere in a subject between two states, as this is a case between Peru and Chile", stated Waisman.

Waisman´s declarations were an answer to Japan’s minister of foreign affairs, Taro Aso, who from Tokyo said, that his country had requested Chile to allow their consular authorities in Santiago to visit the former Peruvian president and to treat him as a Japanese citizen under the Chilean law.

"The Peruvian Chancellery must request explanations to Japan about this intromission", affirmed Waisman to the press.
