Fujimori goes back to Peru

I was thinking to not write about it because is a "political" topic and involve corruption and human rights violations. But actually the reason why I want to write about it is because the good news is that after 7 years hiding from the justice Fujimori, Peruvian ex president was extradited from Chile and sent to Peru to answer for his mistakes. Why is this so special? It is a unique case in our history; Alberto Fujimori is the first president that will be judged in his own country. That means a lot! from now on there is precedent for a case like that and now on will be more complicated for corrupt authorities to fly away and avoid responsibilities.
