Cooperative framework to fight crime In recent years, Panamanian authorities have focused on fighting money laundering to protect the country’s financial sector. By Dialogo December 11, 2015 And they said it wasnâ€™t so. Juanpa assures us the FARC are angels, that they donâ€™t have even a cent for victim reparations, shame on them. MAY MEXICO FREEDOM PEACE AND JUSTICE While the peace talks continue, these Colombian â€œFARCâ€ terrorists go on committing crimes here and outside of Colombia and if that werenâ€™t enough, theyâ€™re raising the cost of services and the VAT to support these scoundrels paid for by us, the Colombians.Definitely, President Santos, youâ€™ve screwed the country up. The cynicism of the â€œColombian revolutionary forcesâ€ FARC, is unheard of. How can a group call itself revolutionary when it is clearly a drug trafficking group? I am, openly, in favor of the peace process airing in Havana, Cuba. I maintain hope that in the FARC group there are still idealists who want a decent homeland, respectful of civil rights and a democratic model of governance. They themselves should denounce the drug traffickers comfortably embedded in their ranks. The rest of us, the Colombians, openly and sincerely, will unite to fight them.GermÃ¡n SÃ¡nchez Bernal If these FARC bandits arenâ€™t going to go to jail for all the crimes they have it’s useless while someone goes to jail for stealing a soup packet from a supermarket to make broth to satisfy their hunger. Which of the two has committed more crimes, itâ€™s anyoneâ€™s guess. Itâ€™s urgent for the communities to pressure their government leaders to unite in their actions and once and for all get rid of this scourge. It is important that those responsible in each country set up rules to keep public officials from getting involved in this scourge which are drugs. If that were to happen, an official would be banned for life from any public activity And where do you think the insurgent groups go to finance the wars. To the black market for all kinds of things: mining, oil, gas, weapons, drugs very interesting… What does your sour puss comment have to do with the article??? Where the laws are useless against those who steal the money from a country and go in pursuit of more money to be able to pay for their whims. MY FRIENDS, IT IS MY PERSONAL OPINION THAT WE WOULD SPEND LESS MONEY ON LEGALIZING THE USE AND CONSUMPTION OF DRUGS, BECAUSE I SEE AT THE RATE WEâ€™RE GOING, ITâ€™S A WAR WITH NO END. LETâ€™S DO A WORLD-WIDE STUDY AND YOUâ€™LL SEE Iâ€™M RIGHT. These terrorists have hurt us too much to be allowed to go on as if they had done nothing FOR GODâ€™S SAKE! SOMEONE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE DAMN DRUGS THAT ARE KILLING OUR YOUTH The news are very good If controlling the mafias by legalizing the production and sale of alcohol helped the USA by taxing them and this way strengthening the economy. Why donâ€™t they legalize drugs, tax them, and sell them all over the place and theyâ€™ll put an end to so-called micro-trafficking and with this revenue increase health services for the people and this way control the evil that can come from using drugs, I let you ponder. The fewer fleas a dog has, the less he scratches Interesting articles in the magazine starting in 2016. Congratulations. Coca leaves are used as medicine. Unscrupulous people are the ones who use it for evil, in order to profit. Nothing can ever be done because the big countries are the main consumers and in addition they are the ones who move this whole mafia, the money from this business is what moves all the countries together. No matter how many strict laws we pass it will never change. The powerful traffickers are the big governments, that is why drug trafficking will never end. SOS for the drug addicts. This scourge that is overwhelming humanity and dragging us evermore toward destruction will have to be stopped. If not, we might end up exterminating the human race as a whole, since human ambition has no limits. What has been stated is very good Go hard on that crime against humanity MY FRIENDS.- THE WAR AGAINST DRUGS IS USELESS TOO MUCH EFFORT IS MADE, THEY HAVE BEEN FOUGHT FOR MANY YEARS AND THEY WILL CONTINUE TO BE FOUGHT AND WILL NEVER BE STOPPED COMPLETELY, THE EASIEST WAY TO FIGHT THIS EVIL IS A WORLD-WIDE DETAILED STUDY TO LEGALIZE DRUGS I hope the same is done in Bolivia in order to improve its image. I take this opportunity to say to national authorities that coca has never been millenary. Itâ€™s true that they used it just for rituals but not to consume because it was prohibited by a decree from the Inca. Bolivia has many natural resources that are not exploited due to a lack of support for investment. The exploitation of agriculture with advanced technology is a solution to capture financial resources that would help my country grow. Very good and great. That hurts youth eradicate that junk Legislating the use of cocaine would put an end to those large businesses since the price would go down and those who hold large quantities would have everything tumble down and they would lose large amounts of money. If someone wants to hurt themself, itâ€™s their issue because cigarettes are as harmful as cocaine. God willing that the current authorities arenâ€™t mixed up with drug trafficking and the ministries donâ€™t shield them. That is the worst evil for the development of countries because those who have financial power seek political power to violate the rights of the citizens. Itâ€™s not enough we still have to fight on all fronts Good news, dismantle criminal gangs. IT IS TIME TO PUT AN END TO ORGANIZED CRIME WHICH IS HURTING OUR SOCIETY SO BADLY This subject, more than politics, the military and the economy, needs something better; such as for example having sophisticated means and material that monitor conversations by politicians, economists, etc. etc. everyone. Since itâ€™s impossible to control drug trafficking through all its channels, there is, it is possible to speak of the extraterrestrial invasion which truly is an undoubtable presence in the world. Just as now where they try to hide these facts, they also try to hide monitoring drug trafficking. The question is why arenâ€™t they controlled, who benefits from these cases and why. Otherwise letâ€™s develop sustainable projects with drugs and vitamins derived from coca, because they would benefit in particular poor countries very much. And, letâ€™s stop investing so much money in things politicians, investors and multinational institutions cannot control.Sincerely,ANONYMOUS Propper information which prevents crime How can it be that there is no follow up in Colombia of all suspicious foreign nationals who enter the country seeking drug negotiations, who function as links with drug cartels abroad, particularly in Mexico To foster continuing cooperation in the fight against transnational organized crime, Mexico and Panama approved a memorandum of understanding on November 25. The Mexico-Panama High-Level Group document, which was signed by Min. Aguilera and Mexican Internal Affairs Secretary Miguel Ángel Osorio Chong, spells out a cooperative framework for the countries to work together on public security, intelligence, international security and terrorism, legal cooperation and justice, crime prevention, customs, and immigration. Following a joint, 18-month investigation, Panamanian authorities announced on November 4th the arrest of 50 suspects allegedly engaged in drug trafficking or money laundering for the Sinaloa Cartel – the world’s largest transnational criminal organization – or the FARC. Two Mexicans residing in a wealthy part of the Panamanian capital allegedly served as the go-between in drug deals between the two organizations, and that connection led authorities to dismantle the network, Panama National Police Commissioner Omar Pinzón told local and international journalists. Panamanian security forces confiscated two tons of cocaine, $500,000 in cash, five go-fast boats, and 40 cars during the operation. The cooperation among the three countries “allowed us to dismantle this gang which, we have proven, was led by El Chapo Guzmán from Sinaloa,” Panamanian Minister of Public Security Rodolfo Aguilera stated. El Chapo has been wanted in Mexico and the United States in connection with drug trafficking, homicide, and other crimes since escaping from a maximum-security prison in Mexico in July. Panamanian security authorities said he hasn’t been seen in Panama. “We detected Mexican drug cartels with connections to the FARC,” Commissioner Pinzón said. “Security operations such as the one that uncovered the nexus between El Chapo and Panama are the result of the mutual trust that has been established among the various governments, which has allowed us to share accurate and timely security information.” In cooperation with Colombian and Mexican authorities, Panamanian security forces captured dozens of suspects who were allegedly part of a criminal partnership between the Sinaloa Cartel, led by drug kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia’s (FARC) 30th Front. “We in Panama comply with all rules established by the International Financial Action Task Force (FATF-GAFI) to shield our financial system and keep it from being used by criminals for their illegal activities,” Donadío said.
“The situation is quite serious,” Jeong said.The two countries have significantly scaled back traditional joint military exercises so as to facilitate US nuclear talks with North Korea.This spring they planned to hold a command coordination exercise.Topics : The United States and South Korea said Monday they were considering scaling back a military exercise planned for this spring because of the coronavirus epidemic.The commander of US forces in South Korea, General Robert Abrams, and the head of that country’s joint chiefs of staff, General Park Han-ki, “are looking at scaling back the command post training due to concerns about the coronavirus,” US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said at a news conference.His South Korean counterpart, Jeong Kyeong-doo, said at the same briefing that 13 servicemen from his country have become infected with the virus and that all leave for the military has been cancelled nationwide so as to limit soldiers’ movements.
Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany could return to action in Belgium’s World Cup qualifier in Macedonia on Friday. City’s defensive linchpin has not played since suffering a calf injury in the FA Cup fourth-round win at Stoke on January 26 but club boss Roberto Mancini said last week he hoped Kompany would be able to face to Newcastle in their next Barclays Premier League game on March 30. In the meantime the 26-year-old has been summoned for international duty and is being assessed ahead of his country’s Group D double-header against Macedonia in Skopje, on Friday, and Brussels next Tuesday. Belgium assistant coach Vidal Borkelmans told Sky Sports News: “Vincent is very important, he is captain of the team. “We are quite happy he has been here. We will see. We will make about Wednesday a point whether he plays or not. “He must listen to the body. He must say, ‘I am okay’ and then it is a decision of the coach what he does, yes or no.” Press Association
More of the same by Evloev! #UFCStPetersburg pic.twitter.com/YfCaaUz2Qb— UFC (@ufc) April 20, 2019 Boasting a relentless pace and well-rounded skill set, the 25-year-old Evloev looks like someone people should definitely pay close attention to going forward, even in a loaded division like featherweight. Every week, we’ll release a new MMA mix tape entitled “The Remix” that looks back at not only the biggest stories of the last seven days, but some of the ones that aren’t getting enough attention too, with some weekly awards and a prospect to watch going forward added in for good measure.Is Kyoji Horiguchi the best fighter outside the UFC right now?Kyoji Horiguchi racked up another dominant victory over the weekend, making quick work of Ben Nguyen at Rizin 15, putting away his fellow former UFC flyweight just under three minutes into the opening round. It was Horiguchi’s ninth straight victory with the Japanese promotion, which has given him an opportunity to flourish and become a star. Along the way, the 28-year-old might have also grown into being the best fighter competing outside of the UFC right now.In addition to beating a host of familiar names, Horiguchi posted a third-round win over reigning Bellator MMA bantamweight champ Darrion Caldwell two fights back, submitting “The Wolf” to become the inaugural Rizin bantamweight champion. Following his win over Nguyen on Saturday, the rumblings were that Horiguchi could run it back with Caldwell later this spring when Bellator MMA returns to Madison Square Garden on June 14: Following his win, Kyoji Horiguchi was asked about possibly going to Bellator for the NYC show in June.If that happens, it would presumably be the rematch between Horiguchi and Darrion Caldwell. Horiguchi beat Caldwell on the NYE card in December. https://t.co/bUSx2vOnwm— Damon Martin (@DamonMartin) April 21, 2019 With all that he’s accomplished since leaving the UFC — and everything he did during his eight-fight run inside the Octagon — you could make a compelling case for Horiguchi being the best fighter competing outside of the UFC right now.He has competition from Gegard Mousasi and Ryan Bader, with the former having a better case even though the latter is Bellator’s first “Champ Champ,” but given that the American Top Team representative went 7-1 in the UFC with his only loss coming a championship clash that came far too soon against Demetrious Johnson and he’s rattled off 12 straight since, you’d be hard-pressed to successfully argue a case for anyone else.And he’s still only 28!While his departure made sense, Horiguchi increasingly feels like a second-tier star the UFC let slip through its hands.UFC Saint Petersburg offers a look at new names in “stale” divisionsIn the second bout of Saturday’s UFC event in Saint Petersburg, Russia, light heavyweight prospect Michal Oleksiejczuk made Gadzhimurad Antigulov pay for recklessly trying to close the distance. Each time the overly aggressive Antigulov raced forward, his 24-year-old Polish counterpart backed up and put a clean left hand on his chin, sending the Russian to the canvas.In just 44 seconds of work, Oleksiejczuk scored three knockdowns, en route to picking up his second first-round stoppage win in the last 10 weeks.One fight later, Shamil Abdurakhimov collected a blistering second-round stoppage win over Marcin Tybura to push his winning streak to three. Abdurakhimov is 5-1 since losing his promotional debut, with his lone setback coming against Derrick Lewis in the fourth-round of a main event pairing in Albany that he had dominated over the opening three rounds.The 37-year-old should find himself in the cage with a more established opponent next time out and with another victory, he could find himself on the fringes of title contention.Much later in the evening, hulking Russian Sergey Pavlovich picked up his first UFC victory, putting Marcelo Golm away with a blistering combination along the fence just over a minute into their heavyweight clash. After being fed to Alistair Overeem when he made his first trip into the Octagon last November, the 25-year-old former Fight Nights Global champ showed he’s an intriguing new name to watch in the heavyweight ranks.This is the type of card where you see how closely fans and media members pay attention to the sport, because you can’t come away from Saturday’s event in Saint Petersburg complaining about the lack of fresh names at heavyweight and light heavyweight when three of the 11 bouts were won by fresh names in those two weight classes.Just because you didn’t see it or aren’t familiar with the athletes stepping into the cage doesn’t mean they’re not talented or their performances are somehow lesser than those of an established fighter on a more prominent fight card.One of the biggest reasons there are so many “unknown contenders” and ranked fighters that “nobody has heard of” these days is because everyone focuses on a group of familiar names and newcomers with buzz, rather than just watching the fights, taking in the performances and recognizing the talent that is on display.Oleksiejczuk has been as impressive in his last two outings as Johnny Walker was in his first two Octagon appearances, but because he’s quiet and unassuming, everyone ignores him, while folks were falling all over themselves to heap praise on the flamboyant Brazilian light heavyweight.Until this improves, solid events like this and numerous names worth watching are going to continue to get overlooked or ignored.How about that booth on Saturday?The UFC Saint Petersburg broadcast booth featured John Gooden on play-by-play with Dan Hardy and Paul Felder serving as analysts and it was perfect.Gooden has his own vernacular when it comes to setting up the action and calling the blow-by-blow of what’s happening in the cage and his timing and chemistry with Hardy has been outstanding for years.While three-man booths can be challenging, the addition of Felder was seamless because the man Jon Anik calls “The Iron Lung” is already a stone-cold killer in the role, bringing a great blend of personality and professional insights to his side hustle.But here’s the part that really takes it over the top for me: all three understand that less is more and the broadcast isn’t about them, which makes for such a wonderful viewing experience.There was no shouting. No random tangents. No catchphrases. No “one-upmanship” between the analysts; just a consistent, insightful flow of pertinent information while allowing the action transpiring in the Octagon to be the focal point and speak for itself.Well done, lads; hope you get more opportunities to work together in the future.Fight of the Weekend: Islam Makhachev vs. Arman Tsarukyan at UFC Saint PetersburgThis fight was a perfect encapsulation of the kind of quality performances people are missing by skipping these cards and ignore bouts the feature competitors they’re not already acquainted with.Makhachev has been making steady progress up the lightweight ranks over the last couple years and is one of those guys who is still just outside the rankings, but a nightmare matchup for some of your favorite familiar names. Tsarukyan was a UFC newcomer who had beaten some guys who had a cup of coffee in the Octagon, but was seemingly been thrown to the wolves in his initial UFC appearance.Although it was one of the most low-profile co-main event pairings of the year, Saturday’s penultimate bout delivered the goods, as Tsarukyan went takedown-for-takedown and scramble-for-scramble with the surging Makhachev before fading down the stretch in the third.It was a tremendously entertaining grappling match where Makhachev showed his resolve and Tsarukyan proved he belongs. Both will be heard from again in the lightweight division before too long and this is sure to end up being a benchmark fight in their respective careers.Submission of the Weekend: Kanako Murata vs. Saray Orozco at Rizin 15We’re going to have to put together a commission to determine the new name of the Von Flue choke because in addition to Ovince Saint Preux deserving some inclusion in the naming of the hold, Kanako Murata does too now. Kanako Murata slams and strangles Saray Orozco on five days notice. #RIZIN15 pic.twitter.com/je6sbL5foT— Mike Skytte (@MikeLovesTacosX) April 21, 2019 This was the second straight “Von Flue choke” finish for Murata, who accepted the fight on Tuesday. Additionally, she finished that bad boy from mount, not from side control, which makes it even more impressive.If we’re figuring out a new name to acknowledge the innovator (Jason Von Flue) and its two more frequent current practitioners (OSP and Murata), may I suggest calling it the “Jason Saint Murata choke” going forward?Knockout of the Weekend: Shamil Abdurakhimov vs. Marcin Tybura at UFC Saint PetersburgAny time you hit someone so hard that there is a delayed reaction, there is a good chance you’re landing in this space.After getting the better of things on the feet in the first, Abdurakhimov looked like he was slowing down a little in the second, prompting Tybura to press forward. But then the Russian uncorked a shot that landed flush and caused Tybura to do the delayed wobbled: HEAVY hands by @Shamilabrek !! #UFCStPetersburg pic.twitter.com/Z2QLtjoMXN— UFC (@ufc) April 20, 2019 This was an outstanding performance for Abdurakhimov, who has now won three straight, as previously mentioned, and is a Derrick Lewis rally away from being on a six-fight winning streak in the UFC.Prospect to Watch after this Weekend: Mosvar EvloevBecause I’m already on board the Michal Oleksiejczuk bandwagon, the nod this week goes to the UFC newcomer I described as “The Russian Elijah Wood” on Saturday, Mosvar Evloev.The unbeaten Russian moved up to featherweight for his Octagon debut and kept rolling along, collecting a unanimous decision win over fellow freshman Seungwoo Choi to push his record to 11-0 overall. Here are some of the highlights: Evloev LANDS 💥 #UFCStPetersburg pic.twitter.com/8GXGnTIGVh— UFC (@ufc) April 20, 2019 BUSY round for Evloev #UFCStPetersburg pic.twitter.com/WvP80bilMt— UFC (@ufc) April 20, 2019

No other part of town was affected. Shield said the electric crew was out there with repairs for four hours. This morning new poles are being set.Follow us on Twitter.
