Peruvian ambassador in Japan returns to Peru


In the Commission of Foreign Affairs of the Congress, the Chancellor Óscar Maúrtua, stated that the retirement of the Peruvian ambassador in Japan it is a consequence of all the political and diplomat disagreement between the Peruvian and Japanese governments in regard to Japanese interference of the extradition process of Alberto Fujimori.

Óscar Maúrtua said that the Peruvian disagreement was increasing due to the slowness and silence shown by Japan to the many extradition orders issued by Peru and also for the Japanese interference in Chile where Fujimori is now.

He emphasized that the extradition process is fair for the good of democracy and that this not is a political persecution. The fact that Fujimori entered Chile with Peruvian documentation is a good reason why Japan shouldn’t interfere in this extradition process.
