Spanish term or phrase:No hay derecho
No es posible aceptar que el Gobierno Colombiano sea indiferente a esta dramática situación. No hay derecho.
This is from a speech given by a woman whose daughter was kidnapped in Colombia. I wan't to go beyond "it's not right", to suggest, as I believe she is doing, that there is no rule of law in the country.
This is perfect. 'Fair' and 'right' seem very tame words to use to talk about government collusion in your daughter's kidnapping. In another context, I would use 'it's just not right', but I felt here I needed something stronger. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
