3 US EXECUTIVES INDICTED IN CHIQUITA TERRORIST FUNDING PROBE IN COLOMBIA

Corporate Counsel from Law.com on 10th September reported that those named include Chiquita’s controller for North America, who is now president of the company’s online fresh salad and produce delivery unit.  They have been indicted in Colombia for alleged crimes against humanity, related to a 2007 criminal case against Chiquita Brands International Inc for funding right-wing terrorist groups in that country.  In March 2007, Chiquita admitted that it made payments from 1997 to 2004 to AUC, a paramilitary organisation designated a terrorist group.  Chiquita settled a criminal complaint by the US Government at that time and paid a $25 million fine.
