Fujimori is placed under house arrest

June 09, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

Former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori was put back under house arrest in Chile, a day after a prosecutor recommended his extradition to face charges of corruption and human rights abuses in his home country.

Peru had warned that Fujimori posed a flight risk, according to the press office of Chile's Supreme Court.

The house arrest took effect when court officers notified Fujimori of the ruling at his residence in the Santiago suburb of Chicureo, the court said. Fujimori's rule ended in 2000.
