    Grotesca pretensión de los tribunales estadounidenses de propinar “castigos” a diestra y siniestra en jurisdicciones ajenas. Lamentablemente hay periodistas adeptos al efectismo que se regodean anunciando tales castigos.

    The jurisdiction of court that handed down the sentence is quite irrelevant - unless, of course, you think the crime of kidnapping Betancourt and putting her through hell for 6 six years, is also irrelevant.
    Besides, why are you so upset ? the chances of the US$ 36 million being paid, are pretty close to zero.
