OTTAWA, July 27 (UPI) -- A man from Peru living in Canada illegally is the fourth suspected war criminal to be arrested in the Toronto area recently, officials said Wednesday.

Henry Pantoja Carbonel was taken into custody by the Canada Border Services Agency, Public Safety Minister Vic Toews and Immigration Minister Jason Kenney announced at a news conference in Ottawa without providing details of the charges against Carbonel. A number of Peruvians have been charged with committing human rights abuses, including death squads and torture, under the government of Alberto Fujimori between 1990 and 2000.

"We are not making a finding of guilt or innocence," the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. quoted Toews as saying.

Carbonel is the fourth person taken into custody since the federal government released the names of 30 suspected war criminals it says entered the country illegally.
