""Moreover, Ms. Cely unwittingly proves the corruption of the Ecuadorean judicial system when she states "[t]he president has said that he will waive some or all of the penalties provided he gets a retraction of the offensive column." If Ecuador is truly a democracy and the judicial branch is independent of the executive branch, where does Correa get the power to "waive some or all of the penalties" levied against a journalist by a supposedly independent court? Obviously, as dictator, he only needs to make a phone call and the judges do as they are ordered.'"
