    Default What is the meaning of the phrase?

    Hello Everyone,

    Could you please explain the phrase to me?

    We frankly cannot accept the delay in granting consular access since the Sandinista government has apparently gone to some lengths to prade Mr. Hasenfus before the press...


    What is the meaning of the underlined?

    Thanks and best regards

    Go to some lengths is an idiom meaning, to try very hard to achieve a result.

    Parade (verb), to make a public and usually ostentatious show of.
