The Guardian / AP Peru Wants Return of Fujimori: "Japan signed an international treaty against torture in 1999, but it is only obliged to hand over suspects accused of torture that took place after the country joined the pact, the official said. The charges this week against Fujimori will be for death squad killings in 1991 and 1992. The official also said that since Japan has not signed the U.N. treaty on international human rights tribunals, it would not be authorized to extradite Fujimori to an international human rights court such as the one in The Hague, Netherlands." Japan responds to Peru's move to bring tougher charges against Fujimori.
