The Supreme Court of Chile once again expanded this Monday (06/24/2024) the crimes for which former President Alberto Fujimori (1990-2000) was extradited to Peru in September 2007, with five cases linked to serious human rights violations, among them forced sterilizations, committed during his government.

In the resolution, the investigating minister, Andrea Muñoz Sánchez, considered that – in the five cases accepted – the requirements are met to access the extension of the charges for which extradition is requested, contained both in the treaty signed on the matter between Chile and Peru as in the international conventions of Belém do ParáCEDAW and the Rome Statuteamong others.

The judge considered that “there are at least founded presumptions or reasonable indications” that the former president promoted “an aggressive family planning policy” to apply “preferentially and on a massive scale a system of surgical contraception” to women from low socioeconomic strata, rural areas, or marginal urban areas and indigenous peoples, “through the imposition of goals, patient recruitment quotas, incentives and sanctions on health officials.”

According to Muñoz, this translated into “practices that ignored due informed consent” of those who were subjected to these techniques, and in “a large number of women who permanently and, involuntarily, lost their reproductive capacity, Many of them also suffered other injuries to their physical and mental integrity, in some cases even leading to death,” the ruling states.

This is at least the third extension of crimes in the extradition of the former Peruvian president. The first was in June 2017 for the crimes of qualified homicide and illicit association for the murder of six farmers in the so-called case Pativilca, also committed by the Colina group in 1992; while the second was accepted in January 2024 for the crimes of illegal supply of firearms, generic falsehood, conspiracy and others.

In December 2023, Fujimori left the prison where he was serving 25 years in prison for crimes against humanity after the Constitutional Court (TC) restored the pardon granted to him in December 2017 by then-president Pedro Pablo Kuczynski (2016-2018). ).
