It’s a scenario you usually only see in movies. An American citizen, living abroad in Nicaragua, gainfully employed, raising a family and everything is shattered in an instant.
Real estate broker Jason Puracel’s life has been at a stand still since November 10, 2010 when Nicaraguan police raided his RE/MAX office, searched his home and threw him in the back of a police van. He has never been charged with any crime and is still sitting in a Nicaraguan jail.
How could something like this happen is the beautiful resort town of San Juan del Sor, made famous by the reality show “Survivor”? How can an America citizen be locked up abroad without charges, warrants or a trial?
In this episode, originally aired 6/2/2011, we discuss this situation with Jason’s sister, Janis Puracel, who is tirelessly working with other members of his family to raise awareness of his unjust arrest and free him!
Unfortunately, as of this blog post on 7/1/2011, Jason is still in jail awaiting an August 2011 trial date.
