Comments on: Why Ecuador isn’t drilling in Yasuni http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2012/01/02/why-ecuador-isnt-drilling-in-yasuni/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Calavero http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2012/01/02/why-ecuador-isnt-drilling-in-yasuni/comment-page-1/#comment-38701 Sat, 05 May 2012 17:24:52 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=11677#comment-38701 A few months on, Felix and Nick, and yes, indeed it can be said that Rita was correct, though it’s only possible to state this in retrospect. In pardoning all the convicted journalists, Correa also obliterated the 40 million dollars in damages, which means the funds that *were* scraped together did not include that sum. The part about Berlusconi should still hold true, but it’s always best to verify your opinions beyond all doubt – despite this being a blog, or perhaps precisely because this is a blog under Reuters.

What you write ” And another $40 million came from Correa himself, who donated the monster libel damages he extracted from opposition newspaper El Universo, in a suit that Amnesty International said “will have a chilling effect on freedom of expression in the country”.” is totally and absolutely false!!!!
