Bolivia Reporting — 28 August 2013



John Le Carré missed this story entirely.  Roger Pinto was a senator in Bolivia.  But then he suggested that the Bolivian government is dealing in narcotics.  He was threatened with arrest and fled to the Brazilian embassy in La Paz where sought and obtained political asylum.   This week Brazilian diplomats piled him in a car and drove him some 1,300 km to Brazil.  The did not tell the Bolivian government.  They just walked the senator right out of the country.


That’s it:  Ludicrous in Latin America.
