Colombia Warns about Danger Corruption Poses to Democracy

first_imgBy Dialogo June 23, 2011 On 20 June, Colombian Vice President Angelino Garzón warned about the risk to democracy from corruption, speaking at the opening of an OAS conference on that topic in Cali, in southwestern Colombia. “What is at issue here is the fight for democracy, and that means a frontal attack on corruption and impunity,” said Garzón, who spoke after the meeting was opened by the secretary general of the Organization of American States (OAS), José Miguel Insulza. “Everything illegal conspires against democracy,” insisted Garzón, a former union leader in charge of human-rights policy and the fight against corruption in the country. “Crime’s two best allies in Colombia are corruption and impunity,” he added, after noting that armed groups of the left and the right operate in his country. Emphasizing the importance that the region’s governments should give to the fight against corruption, he said, “it’s a matter of defending democracy, because everything illegal is contrary to democracy.” “If we let them (corruption and impunity) advance, they will continue undermining democracy. The state is not the spoils of war,” he warned. Garzón assured the OAS secretary general that Colombia will be “especially receptive” to any recommendations that come out of the Cali meeting and said that in the continent, “laws against corruption have made progress, but it’s necessary to enforce them.” Cali hosted the Second Conference on Progress and Challenges in Hemispheric Cooperation against Corruption on 21 and 22 June.last_img read more

Warriors’ Mark Stevens banned 1 year, fined $500K for shoving Kyle Lowry

first_img“There’s no place for that,” Lowry told reporters Wednesday. “He had no reason to touch me. He had no reason to reach over two seats and then say some vulgar language to me. There’s no place for people like that in our league.”Lowry called for Stevens’ ban to be permanent when he met with reporters one day after the game.“More should be done,” Lowry said, via the Washington Post. “He’s not a good look for the ownership group they have. A guy like that showing his true class, he shouldn’t be a part of our league. There’s no place for that.”Stevens apologized for his actions in a statement later Thursday. “I take full responsibility for my actions (Wednesday) at the NBA Finals and am embarrassed by what transpired,” Stevens’ statement read, in part. “What I did was wrong and there is no excuse for it. Mr. Lowry deserves better, and I have reached out today in an attempt to directly apologize. The incident occurred early in the fourth quarter when Lowry dove into the crowd. Stevens reached over and pushed the guard before the two exchanged words. He was then ejected from the stadium.Golden State went on to lose 123-109 and now trails Toronto in the series, 2-1.

2010 security exercise goes aerial

first_img18 March 2009Two of South Africa’s most popular radio personalities were taken hostage on Tuesday in a police and defence force simulation of possible security threats to the 2009 Fifa Confederations Cup and 2010 Fifa World Cup.During “Exercise Shield 3”, Idols judge and 5fm radio presenter Gareth Cliff and Maurice Carpede from 94.2 Jacaranda FM were dragged out of a briefing by two armed masked men and forced into a South African Police Service (SAPS) Cessna Sovereign Citation jet at Swartkops air force base outside Pretoria.During the drama, the South African Air Force (SAAF) scrambled two Hawks which intercepted the hijacked plane and forced it to the ground, where police vehicles and emergency personnel were waiting.The hijackers had no option but to give in and land the plane. Fully armed Special Task Force and South African National Defence Force (SANDF) members surrounded the plane and hostage negotiations began.After intensive negotiations, the “victims” were freed and the “hijackers” arrested with the help of members of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA).The police deployed trained dogs to search bags and parcels for any explosives, assisted by an armed robot operated via remote control.Despite the bad weather, the joint exercise between the SAPS, SANDF, NIA, SAAF and government departments left international reporters, Cabinet ministers and visitors impressed as it revealed the extent of South Africa’s security skills and readiness for hosting world football’s showpiece events.Speaking to BuaNews after the exercise, SAPS National Deputy Commissioner Andre Pruis said the exercise proved that South Africa’s law enforcement agencies were prepared for any security risks that could arise during these events.South Africa has spent more than R665-million on purchasing essential equipment, including six new helicopters with systematic cameras and 92 route vehicles, for the Confederations Cup and World Cup.During these events, thousands of security force members will be strategically deployed to every corner of the country to ensure that visitors and citizens are protected.Pruis added that the safety and security measures employed by South Africa’s national joint operational and intelligence structure would leave many surprised.“We are prepared, and we can assure the whole world that our safety and security plans will effectively make South Africa a crime-free zone during the 2010 Soccer World Cup and 2009 Confederations Cup.”Source: BuaNewslast_img read more
