Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra on Thursday inked the supreme resolution requesting extradition of ex-Supreme Judge Cesar Hinostroza
Precisely today, the Government accepted the extradition request
submitted by the Preparatory Investigation Court and approved by Peruvian Supreme Court against Hinostroza.
According to the resolution, published in El Peruano official gazette, the ex-magistrate will be tried for allegedly committing a public order offense: criminal organization.
Hinostroza has been arrested in Madrid (Spain)
since October 19, after he had fled Peru through a border control point in the north.
The criminal group's alleged crimes came to light as media released a series of audio recordings
of phone conversations between Hinostroza and members of the National Council of the Magistracy (CNM) —currently called the National Justice Board.
As a result, Congress approved a constitutional complaint against him for allegedly being involved in organized crime.
Likewise, Parliament approved the disgraced authority be dismissed and banned from holding public office for 10 years.
After slipping over the border to Ecuador, Hinostroza headed to Spain to request political asylum.
Also, the Supreme Prosecutor's Office for Crimes Committed by Public Officials, led by Supreme Prosecutor Jesus Fernandez, carried out a raid in his house
