January 04, 2006|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Peru formally asked Chile to extradite former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori on human rights and corruption charges.

Peru's ambassador and a special prosecutor delivered 12 sealed boxes of documents to Chile detailing allegations that include 25 death-squad killings in the 1990s, illegal phone tapping, diversion of state funds to the intelligence service, bribery of politicians and the transfer of $15 million to Fujimori's spy chief, Vladimiro Montesinos.

Fujimori has denied Peru's allegations.
