Central America comes together to fight organized crime

first_img “With the measures the countries adopt in regard to security, we hope that the people can feel at peace and regain the development opportunities torn away from them by violence and crime,” said Honduran Vice Chancellor Salomé Castellanos. David Murguía Payés, the minister of Justice and Public Safety of El Salvador, said bolstering the region’s fight against narco-traffickers and gangs should be the initiative’s top priority. “We have concluded that the issue of drug trafficking, mostly small-scale drug dealing, and gangs are the factors that create the most violence,” he said. During the meeting in San Salvador, El Salvador on Jan. 17-18, the representatives of the Supreme Courts, National Judicial Councils, Public Ministries, and Ministries of Justice, Governance and Public Safety of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama and the Dominican Republic asked each country’s legislature to pass the proposed laws quickly so all countries can be on the same page. “It is vital to the project to involve the legislative assemblies in the development of the actions to be carried out by the project and to keep an open communication between the focal points of each country and its legislative counterpart,” the meeting’s final resolution stated. SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador – Central America and the Dominican Republic are preparing a regional strategy to fight organized and transnational crime, specifically targeting narco-trafficking. The effort implies streamlining penal and procedural laws, as well as strengthening the areas of investigation, detention and reintegration of inmates into society. The initiative to make the laws uniform is managed by the Conference of Justice Ministers of Ibero-American Countries (COMJIB) and the General Secretariat of the Central American Integration System (SICA), sponsored by the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation. “With this initiative, we hope to make a leap in terms of the quality of the fight against organized crime,” said Guatemalan Juan Daniel Alemán, SICA’s secretary general. The mid-range goal is for the region – from Guatemala to Panama, including the Dominican Republic – to have common legislation to use in the fight against organized and transnational crime. Among the topics under discussion are changes to nine penal codes, including what defines and constitutes a crime pertaining to human trafficking, money laundering, gang-related infractions and narco-trafficking. Also being discussed are the following: Involving undercover agents in joint investigations; Simplifying the extradition process; Exchanging information and criminal records; Notifying countries regarding fugitives’ prison sentences, so officials in one country know the punishment levied against fugitives in the countries where they are convicted. center_img By Dialogo February 16, 2012last_img read more

Carver to meet fans

first_img Press Association He tweeted: “I’ve been invited to the training ground on Friday to meet Carver and the players and watch a bit of training and sit down and talk to Carver, which is a massive thing to me even with everything going on at the club. “So me and @Thomas91C will be going along on Friday, which we are thankful for getting the chance to speak to staff and players and get the point across that me and @Thomas91C and all you are making, and hopefully find out what Carver is trying to do. “This is a massive opportunity and a chance of a lifetime for me as a fan, no matter what’s going on at the club, and it’s a chance to try and connect back with the club we all deep down love.” The move comes as disgruntled fans protesting at the way owner Mike Ashley is running the club – attendances for the last two games at St James’ Park have been significantly lower than usual with thousands of spectators responding to calls for a boycott. In addition, the club has slipped to within five points of the relegation zone after a desperate run of results, and they face a trip to in-form Leicester at the weekend knowing things could get worse before they get better. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel for Carver with Moussa Sissoko due to return from suspension on Saturday and Papiss Cisse a game behind him, while midfielder Siem de Jong played 90 minutes for the Under-21s on Tuesday afternoon as he stepped up his return from an eight-month injury lay-off. Social media platforms were buzzing on Saturday evening amid claims that the 50-year-old had reacted in kind to abuse he received as the Magpies slipped to a seventh successive loss, although the club later moved to deny that he had used foul or abusive language and offered to see one of the angry supporters after the game. Later in his press conference, Carver insisted he would happily sit down with anyone and try to explain to them what he is trying to do with the team as he attempts to halt an alarming slide, and fan Allen O’Connell revealed via his Twitter account on Tuesday evening that he and another supporter are to get together with Alan Pardew’s former assistant on Friday. center_img Newcastle head coach John Carver is to meet two fans with whom he become involved in a heated exchange during Saturday’s Barclays Premier League defeat by Swansea. last_img read more
