US seeks custody of Peru ex-president Toledo for extradition

US attorneys asked a California judge yesterday to revoke the bail of former Peruvian President Alejandro Toledo and prepare for his extradition to Peru, where he is wanted on corruption charges.  

“Now that… the Secretary (of State) has authorised Toledo’s surrender, Toledo should be brought into custody so that the government may effectuate his surrender to Peruvian authorities,” prosecutors said in their written request to the court.
