An Interview with Rafael Correa President of Ecuador
The former president has accused Ecuadoran judicial authorities of "political persecution." Interpol had rejected an Ecuador-issued arrest warrant in July, saying it was "obviously a political matter."
Rafael Correa is alleged to have orchestrated the brief kidnapping of an opposition lawmaker in 2012. He faces up to 12 years in prison if a criminal trial goes ahead and ends in a guilty verdict.
Right-wing populist Jair Bolsonaro seems about to win Brazil's presidential elections. Conservative presidents are also in power in Argentina, Chile and Colombia. Is a "new right" emerging in the region?
