Three Alleged Zetas Arrested with 336 Kilos of Cocaine in Guatemala

first_imgBy Dialogo June 02, 2011 Following an armed confrontation, Guatemalan anti-drug agents arrested three Guatemalans suspected of belonging to the Mexican Los Zetas cartel, which is believed responsible for the massacre of twenty-seven peasants on a rural property on 14 May, and seized 336 kilos of cocaine, the police announced. “Three individuals were arrested, and Mexican documents were seized from them, so that the investigation is pointing toward their possibly being members of Los Zetas or having ties with that (criminal) organization,” police spokesperson Donald González told AFP. The three suspects were detained after a pursuit when they failed to obey an order to stop at a police checkpoint on the Atlantic highway, and in their attempt to escape, they drove onto a dead-end road, where the confrontation took place, González indicated. The agents also seized 336 kilos of cocaine, three armored vehicles, two AK-47 rifles, and two M-16s, as well as ammunition. The Guatemalan authorities attribute to Los Zetas the massacre of twenty-seven peasants on a rural property in the northern department of Petén on 14 May and the murder of a public prosecutor last week. President Álvaro Colom imposed a state of emergency in Petén two days after the massacre, as a result of which sixteen suspects have been detained, seven of them Mexicans. Los Zetas, whose networks extend from the southern United States to several countries in Central America, are a group created by Mexican military personnel who deserted some years ago to join the Gulf cartel, with which they are now clashing.last_img read more

President Trump Signs Executive Order Against Social Media Outlets

first_imgIn terms of the original tweets regarding the mail-in ballots, the president tweeted this follow-up on Thursday:So ridiculous to see Twitter trying to make the case that Mail-In Ballots are not subject to FRAUD. How stupid, there are examples, & cases, all over the place. Our election process will become badly tainted & a laughingstock all over the World. Tell that to your hater @yoyoel— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 28, 2020 President Trump signed an executive order targeting social media companies on Thursday afternoon, two days after Twitter issued a fact check on two tweets the president authored.The executive order removes liability protection for websites such as Facebook and Twitter, opening such platforms to lawsuits.Mr. Trump has relied on Twitter as a frequent communication tool since before his 2016 presidential campaign. He has also used it to make official announcements.“There’s nothing I’d rather do than get rid of my whole Twitter account,” Trump said Thursday, shortly before signing the order.On Tuesday, Twitter flagged several of the president’s tweets about mail-in ballots for potentially misleading information.In response, he tweeted:….Twitter is completely stifling FREE SPEECH, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 26, 2020 Trump’s order directs federal agencies to reexamine some of the legal protections that social media companies currently have under Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act, which protects websites from liability for content posted by their users.Specifically, the executive order requests clarification from the Federal Communications Commission regarding the conditions under which restricting access to content is determined to be done in “good faith” and protected by the law.The order also directs federal agencies to stop paying in order to advertise on platforms that “violate free speech principles” and reestablishes the White House “Tech Bias Reporting Tool.” That means complaints can be collected from users and forwarded to the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission. The FTC could then report publicly on the complaints and possibly pursue lawsuits against the companies.last_img read more
