U.S. actor Sean Penn pushes U.S. businessman Jacob Ostreicher in a wheelchair, 

U.S. actor Sean Penn pushes U.S. businessman Jacob Ostreicher in a wheelchair, wearing a flak jacket, during a recess at Ostreicher's hearing in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2012. A Bolivian appeals panel has refused to immediately release Ostreicher, despite evidence he was fleeced and extorted by prosecutors who have had him jailed for 18 months without charges on suspicion of money laundering. Ostreicher has been hospitalized for more than two weeks in a private clinic after being diagnosed with Parkinson's.  Ostreicher's case led to the uncovering of a shakedown ring allegedly run by the No. 1 legal advisor in the Interior Ministry, and including two prosecutors. It came after actor Sean Pean interceded with President Evo Morales. (AP Photo)
