Chile's Supreme Court has rejected an appeal for bail for former president
Chile's Supreme Court has rejected an appeal for bail for former president of Peru Alberto Fujimori. Fujimori was arrested two weeks ago in Chile after arriving from Japan where he has been since resigning his presidency and fleeing Peru in 2000. Last week an Appeals Court rejected an initial request for bail. Fujimori faces charges in Peru of corruption and human rights abuses.
