    Set up by US undercover narcs, posing as drug smugglers in Liberia, to fly 4 tons of coke to the US, the cocaine never existed and no attempt was made to smuggle anything.

    He was arrested by the undercover narcs, taken to the US and sentenced to 20 years for conspiracy to import.
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

    Extra territorial application of American law, unreal. They use it in any case judged to affect the US interest, ie it means anything they want it to mean and they can use it to justify arresting pretty much anyone, anywhere, under their law.

    I don't like that women newsreader,
    she uses that, I'm so authoritative, monotone voice that's becoming very common.
    among lady reporters- desperate to be taken seriously.
    verdict
    she needs putting across someones knee for a good spanking

    Why do I have the feeling that we did not get the whole story?

    Those drug agents approached just some random pilot and asked him to fly the cocaine? Or did they have a reason to approach this man?

    And what about extraterritorial application of US law? He was to fly Cocaine into the US, how is that extraterritorial?

    ^He was not in US territory, its not their jurisdiction and they should inform the local agencies to apprehend and try the suspect in the country where they have intelligence a crime is being committed. Otherwise, if he has actually been in the US and broken their law they should go through the proper process for extradition.

    NOT extraordinary rendition, which the US love.

    ^
    I don't agree with USA thinking they are the world lawmen
    but maybe you're right
    a quick search on his name
    ''Yaroshenko and Nigerian Chigbo Peter Umeh were detained in Liberia in May 2010 and extradited to the United States on charges of smuggling a large batch of cocaine, part of which was destined to the U.S.
    Umeh was sentenced to 30 years in jail in late July.''

    take my advice if a Nigerian comes anywhere near you, MOVE

    Exactly, he may well have committed a crime in Liberia, but not in America.
    If he was guilty he should be sentenced in Liberia.

    The cocaine never existed and he was set up by under-cover operatives, this may or may not be entrapment under American law. The usual test for entrapment is whether the accused was "predisposed" to commit the crime, or did the idea originate entirely with the undercover law enforcement. Here he clearly was predisposed, otherwise there would have been nothing to talk about.

    That does not defend the nonsense of the US enforcing its stupid drug laws outside the USA.
