Bolivian Judge Keeps Yanky Ostreicher in Jail


yanky-ostreicherA Bolivian appeals panel has refused to immediately release Yanky Ostreicher, despite evidence he was fleeced and extorted by prosecutors who have had him jailed for 18 months without charges on suspicion of money laundering.

Instead, the two judges sent the case of Mr. Ostreicher back to the trial judge. They ordered her to reconsider favorable evidence she previously threw out at the urging of an official who is now under arrest.
