NY Times Peru's Former President Plots His Return to Power: "During the Fujimori decade, Japan funneled $3 billion in foreign aid to Peru. The Japanese public was captivated by the ethnic Japanese success story, forcing a succession of governments to make Peru one of Japan's largest aid recipients. With Mr. Fujimori's departure from Peru, and angry demonstrators outside the Japanese Embassy demanding his extradition, Japanese officials allowed aid contracts to expire. The Toledo government is far more interested in having aid restored than in having Mr. Fujimori returned." Long story -- and important since it's in the Grey Lady.
