"In the so-called banana republics, state institutions and the justice system had been made pliable to the wishes and aspirations of the privileged minority. Most major decisions in the statecraft, implemented by local agents serving the capitalist/ imperialist interests, were taken at faraway centers of the metropolitan world. The law was applied selectively and state institutions could be bullied into submission by the powerful."
