JERUSALEM – Israeli authorities say they will not permit Peru's fugitive former president to enter the country if he attempts to do so.
In a statement, Israel's Foreign Ministry said Sunday that Alejandro Toledo would only be allowed into Israel "once his affairs in Peru are settled."
Toledo is accused of taking some $20 million in bribes. He was believed to be in San Francisco over the weekend and possibly on a flight set to land in Israel later Sunday. His wife has Israeli citizenship.
Israeli officials said they did not know whether he was on the plane.
