I'm not sure how I feel...
If Chiquita were indeed paying "protection" money (i.e. being extorted), I can't say I blame them too much. That's business as usual in that part of the world.
If, however, Chiquita were actively supporting FARC or in some way contributing to the problems in the region, they should be dealt with severely.
Honestly though, who the hell does "clean" business in Columbia? Even today?
It's a tough world out there, kids...
the suit CLAIMS there was more than paying extortion money, that it was money AND WEAPONS and mutual goals as far as attacking OTHER farms. I don't know how much of it's true, but the claim begs for investigation.
The intrigue in South America involving the US gov't and business interests has been ongoing for 100 years.
The suit has to claim that or they don't have a claim.
I have no idea if it is right or wrong.
