Chiquita Must Face U.S. Suit Over Colombian Terrorist Murders

Chiquita Brands International Inc…must face a lawsuit accusing it of helping Marxist rebels in Colombia who murdered five American missionaries a decade ago. U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra…let stand five of the lawsuit’s claims against Chiquita while dismissing 19. Yesterday’s ruling allows the missionaries’ families to pursue claims that the company aided and abetted in the murder and provided material support and resources to terrorists…“Plaintiffs have sufficiently alleged that Chiquita’s provision of money and weapons to FARC aided and abetted the commission of the kidnappings and murders at issue,” Marra said in the ruling…Ed Loyd, a Chiquita spokesman, couldn’t immediately be reached for comment yesterday.
