Alfonso Portillo has arrived back in Guatemala City
Mexico has extradited the former Guatemalan president, Alfonso Portillo, to face corruption charges.
Mr Portillo is wanted over the disappearance of $15m (Ł8.5m) earmarked for the Guatemalan defence department.
Mr Portillo, who served as president from 2000 to 2004 before going to Mexico, denies any wrongdoing.
After arriving back in the country on Tuesday, Mr Portillo appeared before a judge and said there was no evidence to support the allegations.
A Mexican government statement said: "The transfer of Alfonso Antonio Portillo Cabrera to the Republic of Guatemala was concluded today (Tuesday), according to the terms of the extradition treaty."
In court in Guatemala City, Mr Portillo said: "In order to prove fraud, one must show that the accused had control over the money and we have account receipts from the controller general showing the president was not in charge of any funds."
The judge will rule on whether to remand Mr Portillo or bail him.
Mr Portillo took refuge in Mexico at the end of his four-year presidential term after he lost legal immunity from prosecution.
Mexico ordered that he be extradited in 2006, but Mr Portillo appealed to the country's Supreme Court that it was unconstitutional. The court ruled against him in January.
Guatemalan radio reported that Mr Portillo had given himself up to Mexican authorities.
