Please! The owners of these businesses are wanted fugitives that sought, and found, refuge in the US. They squandered the life savings of many, many Ecuadorians, many elderly, when they fled and closed down their Filibanco. Now, due to back taxes...just like in the US...they lost their businesses in Ecuador. The assets will be sold and all those people they robbed will get at least some renumeration.

PS...Most people in Ecuador see him as a hero for seizing those businesses, btw. It seems as though perhaps the only press you read in regards to Correa is US press. It's never very kind given that he won't play ball Washington style and is actually interested in doing what's best for Ecuador, not the US.

At least, this once, the rich have been shown to be the thiefs that they are. May they burn in hell! Correa did not go far enough in confiscating their stolen loot, long prison terms for all should follow. Ecuador is not a rich country and that makes their avarice even more abhorrent. Death to the rich!

I won't go as far as to say death to the rich but I do agree with almost everything else you said.Also agree totally with Sinduda.I am a north american born in the U.S.I am sick and tired of this government sticking their nose in everyone's affairs.This country is going down hill fast.I am tired of all the lies.I feel like I am living under a dictatorship.I always knew that the WE WE WE attitude of this government would come back to haunt us someday.Ecuador holds alot of fond memories for me. I lived in Quito for 15 years as that is where my husband is from.We celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary yesterday.VIVA QUITO!
