Senator and former President Álvaro Uribe has been reading the draft for the FARC-Colombian government “peace deal”, and tweeted this today:
“In the FARC-Government accord, drug trafficking will not get extradition nor domestic penalty.”
En el acuerdo entre el Gobierno y Farc, narcotráfico no tendrá extradición ni castigo doméstico.

So not only won’t the Colombian government continue to outsource justice instead of repairing its broken institutions – especially the justice system, which The Economist calls “worryingly inefficient and corruptible” – the drug trade (the FARC’s main source of revenue) won’t be punished.
What could possibly go wrong?
