Miami Herald – Opinion – Ecuador’s Correa shoots himself in the foot
Date: Aug 10, 2011
The author of this piece is highly critical of the administration of Ecuador President Rafael Correa:
I fear that Rafael Correa, the president of Ecuador, has opened the gates of trouble.
The lawsuit against the daily El Universo and his malicious efforts to imprison journalist Emilio Palacio and the editors of that newspaper will turn him into the defendant for the same charges once the table turns. Today, Correa controls the judiciary to a great degree, but in Latin America, especially in Ecuador, that is almost always a passing phenomenon.
