Colombian Mayor Proposes Drug Use for Medical Purposes

first_img The facilities would consist of ‘‘clean sites, where state personnel or certified NGOs would allow addicts to stay there and consume the substances,’‘ he explained. In Bogotá, drug addiction rehab centers could provide addicts with drugs seized from drug traffickers, or legally purchased by foreign laboratories, stated Mayor Gustavo Petro on September 24. In the next months, Mayor Petro, former leftist senator and guerrilla member, expects to inaugurate facilities that would provide illegal drugs to addicts under medical supervision. In order to carry out this initiative, authorization from the national government is required. The second alternative would be to buy the drug ‘‘abroad in legal laboratories from the United States and it could be imported for therapeutic purposes,’‘ he said. Petro advocates this kind of treatment, which is new in Latin America and has been used ‘‘successfully’‘ for over 25 years in dozens of cities worldwide, to reduce the damage caused by drug use in addicts. Last week, the Colombian capital opened its first two mobile centers to assist drug addicts in areas highly affected by poverty and social exclusion. These units only provide legal medical prescription drugs as substitutes. By Dialogo September 26, 2012 The mayor’s office would have two alternatives to obtain the drugs. On the one hand, it might come from ‘‘seizures carried out by the police, as long as they are certified by a State laboratory,’‘ to guarantee that the drugs are in proper condition, explained Petro to the private radio station La FM. In July, a law passed in Colombia established that drug addiction must be considered a public health concern, and consumers should be treated as patients, not as criminals.last_img read more

Peru Armed Forces Celebrate Military Valor Day by Recalling Operation Chavín de Huantar

first_imgBoth Col. Juan Valer Sandoval and Capt. Raúl Jiménez Chávez, who were killed during the operation, were promoted posthumously to those ranks, and are regarded as heroes in Peru. The Military rescued all of the hostages except for one: Carlos Giusti Acuña, a member of the Supreme Court, who died. Training for a bold operation Intelligence and spy efforts were key reasons for the success of the operation, said retired Army General Leonel Cabrera, who was in charge of one of the assault teams that freed the hostages. Intelligence and spy efforts were key reasons for the success of the operation, said retired Army General Leonel Cabrera, who was in charge of one of the assault teams that freed the hostages. That incident began on December 17, 1996, when 14 MRTA terrorists, led by Néstor Cerpa Cartolini, held hostage hundreds of people attending a birthday party for Emperor Akihito at the embassy. “After the explosions, the Commandos appeared and proceeded to place their small explosives in the walls along the perimeter, the explosives went off, opening a gap, and all the Commandos were able to enter the residence,” Gen. Zapata said. Military Victory Day, which takes place every April 22nd, is an homage to the 1997 Armed Forces effort that led to the rescue of 72 captives from the Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement, which had held them for 126 days in the Japanese ambassador’s residence. The heroic mission is a lesson to the entire world, said Army General César Astudillo, because “140 service members of Peru’s Armed Forces put the performance of their duty before any other responsibility.” “Using these organizations, we put together the intervention force building on groups for command, assault, support, security and sharpshooters,” said Gen. Zapata. The success of the operation relied on secrecy, surprise, and speed. Microphones are hidden in pillows The Military rescued all of the hostages except for one: Carlos Giusti Acuña, a member of the Supreme Court, who died. “We inserted microphones into the produce and pillows for the hostages. We put together a psychological profile of the captors and we learned their routines,” said retired Army General Leonel Cabrera. “We knew what time they played soccer in the hall. That was their mistake: That was the time we could enter and surprise them.” Commandos get the order to raid home Their rescue required a great amount of Military preparation. Their rescue required a great amount of Military preparation. Army Commander Lieutenant Colonel Luis Marca Silva was the first to enter. He recalled his mission clearly: “We had to blow up the main door, enter the second floor, and rescue the hostages who were in the rooms along the front of the building…At the time, I didn’t even think about running into a terrorist and having a shoot-out with him. We had trained for everything in this operation and everything was ready.” The personnel selected for this operation, he recalled, included the best Commandos teamed together in groups. The best shooters were assigned to sharpshooting, the best explosive handlers managed that task, and those best-suited to enter the residence made up another group. “All of them were part of the intervention force.” Peru recently celebrated what is widely regarded as one of the most successful military operations in the country’s history. Armed with AKM rifles, RPG launchers, explosives and dynamite, they took captive diplomats, government and Military officials, and business executives, demanding from the government millions of dollars and the release of imprisoned group members. MRTA had begun its criminal activities in 1984 with targeted killings of police officers, Military service members and civilians, car bomb attacks, and kidnappings. On this occasion they gradually released most of the hostages, but detained 72 for more than four months. To carry out the mission, the Military rented housing around the residence to observe what was going on, while simultaneously, a replica of the home was built for use in training the service members to execute the rescue in the shortest time possible.

Zapata received the order to raid the residence from then-president Alberto Fujimori. The following day, during the operation, Soldiers detonated explosive charges under the residence floors in tunnels that had been constructed over several months by a group of miners, allowing the Military to use the element of surprise for the operation. Operation Chavín de Huántar was named in reference to a Peruvian archaeological site famous for its underground passageways. Astudillo, a participant in the mission who is now chief of the VRAEM Special Command, recalled his comrades-in-arms who died in the effort.

2014 WC : Brazil to investigate hotel price hike

first_imgThe government in Brazil says they will investigate whether FIFA’s official accommodation agency was involved in “cartel” practices that may lead to hotel price hikes during the 2014 World Cup.The government announced Thursday that a committee recently created to monitor excessive price rises during the World Cup will check whether the actions by MATCH Services “can be characterized as cartel.”ReservationsThe committee will analyze the hotel reservations made by MATCH in the 12 World Cup host cities to check if they affect market prices. Government officials said they also will meet with the airline industry next week to make sure there are no excessive hikes in travel prices during next year’s tournament.Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff created the monitoring committee following complaints by consumer advocates and amid reports of outrageous price increases in the tourism sector projected during the World Cup. A study by Brazil’s tourism board earlier this year showed that some hotel rates will be up to 500 percent more expensive during the month-long tournament in some hotels offered by the FIFA-appointed agency.The government wants to know how many rooms MATCH has reserved in the host cities because, according to Brazilian legislation, anything more than 20 percent of the local market can be considered a cartel. The probe of MATCH’s practices and the start of discussions with the airlines were among some of responsibilities given to the committee after a meeting in Brasilia on Thursday. The committee will also be in charge of mapping out the prices and the quality of services in hotels, restaurants and airports. MATCH and FIFA did not immediately answer a request for comment, but have previously denied all accusations of wrongdoing.AgreementMATCH reached agreement with nearly 800 hotels in Brazil soon after the country was picked in 2007 to host the 2014 World Cup. The Swiss-based company says it does not regulate prices and notes that charges are set by the hotel owners and other tourism stakeholders.Tourism projections estimate nearly 600,000 foreigners and some 3 million Brazilians are expected to move around the country during the World Cup that next June.last_img read more
