Ecuador’s Correa says he will resign if Chevron proves interference (emphasis added)
Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa has promised to resign if Chevron proves his government interfered in a trial over Amazon pollution that resulted in a record fine against the US oil giant.
“Let Chevron prove that the government interfered in the judgment and I will resign my post,” Correa said Tuesday at a news conference in Guayaquil.
Here’s the thing: Correa is certain there’s no evidence tying him directly to anything.
Tell ya what, Correa resigns because of Chevron and I’ll buy him a drink.
