    Obviously he's never been to Finland. Hundreds of miles of forest and not a lot else, and they've managed to become rich without cutting it all down.

    Maybe the Finnish Govt. did not pay for his trip?

    Such a big claim, but absolutely no evidence, which says it all. As that is your burden of proof, that you have failed. Since he who asserts must prove.

    Since you failed prove your claim, it cannot be true, and thus must be false. End of story.

    Hah, I knew you wouldn't be able to resist replying, Gollum. You're so predictable.

    But more important things: is this for reals?

    Your dishonesty is so predictable. “Since you failed prove your claim, it cannot be true, and thus must be false.” Further confirmed by failure to deny.

    “A Brazilian Supreme Court minister said in an interview that the reporting could be grounds to vacate convictions.
    Gilmar: If they are real, Moro's dialogues are absurd and can void sentences
    Minister says that cases of consultations between judges and prosecutors 'happen' in Brazil, but that the practice 'can not be normalized'
    Justice Minister Gilmar Mendes said Wednesday that ”if they did happen,“ the talks between Sergio Moro and Deltan Dallagnol ”are not orthodox“ and one implication could be the ”nullification of convictions“ . In an interview for Globo News , Gilmar acknowledged that other similar cases occur in Brazil, but he asked not to normalize an ”absurd“.
    ”These consultation talks between the prosecutor and the judge, in this way, do not exist,“ said the minister, who added: ”Brazil has normalized the absurdities, but we will not normalize that. This type of query is not normal. If you ask me, is there? Yes of course. This was somehow structured [in Brazil], but it is not correct. If the conversations really happened, they are not orthodox. The judge can not advise the party, so says the text. ”
