The Peruvian government is to deport a Japanese woman suspected of belonging to the Japanese Red Army terrorist group.
Forty-nine-year-old Kazue Yoshimura will be deported despite the absence of a formal extradition treaty between Japan and Peru.
Yoshimura was arrested last month on suspicion of consorting with terrorists from the Peruvian Shining Path.
Kazue Yoshimura was arrested in Lima on May 25 after being seen with members of the Shining Path terrorist group.
She is a suspected member of the Japanese Red Army, a Japanese guerrilla group known for attacks in the 1970s.
The 49-year-old woman has been on the run for 22 years.
She was held under tight security at the headquarters of Peru's anti-terrorist police while Japanese authorities confirmed her identity.
Japan's national police notified us officially that they had confirmed the full identity based on the identification papers of Yoko Okuyama and those of Kazue Yoshimura, establishing that it was the same person that for the last 22 years has been sought after by Japan's national police on charges of terrorism.

Yoshimura was to be deported Wednesday as persona non grata despite the absence of a formal extradition treaty between Japan and Peru.
She was arrested with false identity papers giving the name Yoko Okuyama.
The Japanese woman reportedly arrived in Peru on a tourist visa on April 6.
Yoshimura is wanted in connection with a 1974 attack on the French Embassy in the Netherlands.
She has been on an international wanted list since 1975.
The Peruvian government will also deport a boy who was with Yoshimura and who was taken into protective custody.
