Wanted! Alejandro Toledo! Reward U$30,000!

I'm not joking. Peru's Interior Ministry has this morning put a bounty on the capture of Ex-President Alejandro Toledo. Seriously. Here's the poster.

He's on the country's Most Wanted list and the S/100,000 reward equates to around U$30,500 at today's forex. As he was in Stanford University yesterday (where he pretends to work as a professor), there's an easy payday waiting for some enterprising student there.

UPDATE: Apparently he's in Paris, France now. Therefore...

We seek him here, we seek him there,
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere.
Is he in heaven? — Is he in hell?
That damned, elusive Pimpernel
