Lawsuit: Chiquita Funded Terror Groups

Relatives of people said to be murdered by paramilitary groups in Colombia on Thursday sued Chiquita Brands International Inc., accusing the banana company of funding terrorists. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Trenton, came four months after the Cincinnati-based Chiquita admitted it paid such groups $1.7 million in protection money... Company spokesman Michael Mitchell said he could not discuss specifics in the lawsuit, but added, "Suits of this nature are without merit, and we'll certainly defend ourselves vigorously."
