THE IMPUNITY OF CHIQUITA BRANDS INTERNATIONAL: FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES

http://www.colectivodeabogados.org/article.php3?id_article=1457

Excerpt:

After the factual proffer was filed in the case against Chiquita Brands International before the US District Court of the District of Columbia on March 14, 2007, in which it was verified Chiquita Brands International, through its subsidiary in Colombia, Banadex S.A., made monthly payments for over six years to the paramilitary structures in the regions of Urabá and Santa Marta, [1] the president of Colombia, Álvaro Uribe Vélez, declared before the mass media that he did not foresee any inconvenience for the Colombian justice system to request the extradition of this company’s board of directors...
...

On September 17, 2007, Chiquita Brands International pled guilty to the felony of “Engaging in Transactions with a specially-designated Global Terrorist” before the US District Court for the District of Columbia and was sentenced to paying 25 million dollars to the US Department of Justice. [18] In exchange for accepting this responsibility, the Court decided not to prosecute criminal charges or to identify the individual responsibilities of the implicated directors, which also opened the door to move forward the criminal cases in Colombia as well as the eventual extradition of the responsible parties. Throughout this period of time, the defense of Chiquita Brands had the assistance of Eric H. Holder Jr., former deputy attorney general of the US Department of Justice during the Clinton administration and now advisor for the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Barack H. Obama. [19]

If the truth was known this goes on all the time everywhere between the industry and big business and of course in this case again the background is political  as also the bloodhounds of the "search and detain.."party!. Cool
