Bolivia Applauds Peruvian Asylum Refusal

La Paz, Apr 5 (Prensa Latina) The Government of Bolivia welcomed on Tuesday Peru”s refusal to grant political asylum to former government minister Guillermo Fortun (2000-2001), wanted by the Bolivian Justice Ministry.

  According to Deputy Minister of Government Coordination Wilfredo Chavez, the Peruvian administration acted very properly to contribute to the investigation on the illegal use of State resources by Fortun.

The Government of Peru exercised a faculty that it should have exercised in other cases, but in this in particular event it is good for the sake of relations between both countries, said Chavez.

In his opinion, Fortun’s request fails to fit legal regulations, as he is not a politically persecuted person, but someone who refused to comply with judicial regulations.
