Piedad Cordoba banned from politics for 18 years, no "Bloggings by Boz", sobre uma senadora colombiana destituida do cargo e baninda de ocupar cargos politicos pelo Procurado-Geral, sob a acusação de ligações às FARC:
What bothers me about this story is that the Attorney General removed her from office and banned her from politics without a judicial trial. In my opinion, that's anti-democratic. An executive branch going after a opposition politician like this reeks of political persecution.
The Attorney General should not be able to make this decision unilaterally. If the evidence is solid, then charge her with a crime and let her face an open trial. Otherwise, she should be left alone.
