Arthur Budovsky, a Costa Rican National living in Spain at the time he was abducted to suffer a show trial in the United States, has been sentenced by said kangaroo court to 20 years in prison. Preet Bharara's (WOT:nonperson) office was naturally involved with the prosecution offering:
Despite all his efforts to evade prosecution, including taking his operations offshore and renouncing his citizenship, Budovsky has now been held to account for his brazen violations of U.S. criminal laws
Even though all of those measures would to the contrary suggest that Budovsky instead simply had no interest in having any relationship with the United States at all. Unfortunately for Budovsky the United States was far less willing than he to end the relationship on amicable terms choosing to subject a man who did everything in his power to cleanly sever the relationship to sanctions as though they were still connected in any way beyond the abduction of Budovsky. Sorry for your laws.
