Interesting that he was able to avoid charges under RICO. RICO is often used to imprison people when there is no evidence.
Someone else imprisoned by these laws was Howard Marks.
see - [www.drugtext.org
Marks has written a book admitting to having been a hash smuggler in the ´70s and was imprisoned in the US for 7 years, charged with conspiracy and organised crime activities under RICO. He still maintains he never committed a crime on US soil or that any of his activities resulted in a crime in the US. His book =Mr. Nice= is a good, interesting read. He was extradited from Spain to face charges in a US court. The US were responible for transporting him and his possessions and, interestingly, *lost* his defence paperwork on the way. More reasons to distrust the US govt.
