The Strike Force of Bayamón arrests suspect of killing in Comerío

mikenova shared this story .

Police last night arrested one of the suspects suspected of the massacre reported last Sunday morning in front of a business in Comerío , confirmed the police press officer, Widalys Rivera.

It is a young man of 24 years who is nicknamed “Minor” . The name will not be disclosed by this newspaper, since he has not been accused of the alleged crimes.

Rivera explained that the arrest was made at around 9:00 pm on the PR-811 highway, in the Lomas del Valle sector, in Naranjito.

“He was arrested by Law 22 (of Vehicles and Transit of Puerto Rico),” said the agent, indicating that the young man was occupied a Toyota Yaris, of 2017, for research purposes.

It is also alleged that the young man was occupied with ammunition without firing in the vehicle. However, Rivera was unable to confirm the information.

The arrest was made by agent Carlos Rodríguez, of the Strike Force of Bayamón.

So far, it is unknown whether the federal authorities will assume jurisdiction over the case, Rivera said.

A “Minor” is linked to the war between rival gangs that sparked a shootout in front of a business in the urban area of Comerío in which five people died.

The police identified the victims as Ángel Luis Santiago (34 years old), Nahir Rolón (25 years old), Luis Armando Torres (27 years old), Christian Cruz (26 years old) and Raymond Rivera (20 years old).

They ask for scandal in the ESA | GOVERNMENT

Faced with the complaint that a group of employees of the Electric Power Authority (AEE) was dedicated to energize non-priority areas and nightclubs of exotic dancers in exchange for money, the representative of Precinct 3 of San Juan, Juan Oscar Morales, sued yesterday of the public corporation that investigates said accusations.

Morales told EL VOCERO that it is the responsibility of the interim executive director of the AEE, Justo González, to immediately initiate a probe into these complaints.

“I understand from another source that Justo knew about these complaints. What I want is for him to explain to the Country if he has already started an investigation with this thing that is coming out today (yesterday) in EL VOCERO, “said the representative, adding that if these allegations are correct, it must reach the final consequences and set responsibilities.

He said that since December he had met with González to bring him complaints about connections in sectors such as Good Advice that were made because ESA managers live there.

Yesterday this newspaper published on the cover that a group of employees of the AEE presumably energized non-priority areas to favor friends, family and even clubs of dancers. One of these businesses allegedly paid four employees of the public corporation checks in the amount of $ 5,000 and gave them 15 ticket offices valued at $ 1,000 each.

According to the sources, the scheme began after Hurricane Maria, which occurred on September 20, and supposedly involved managerial and unionized employees.

No quarrels

However, the acting executive director of the AEE said that at the moment there are no complaints or information about the alleged bribery scheme of alleged employees that, if true, would violate the rules of conduct according to the provisions of the administrative manual of the public corporation. .

“En la AEE no hay espacio para la corrupción. La combatiremos con rigurosidad y mano firme venga de donde venga. Exhortamos a la ciudadanía a presentar cualquier alegación o información sobre algún suceso que implique ilegalidad (testigo, declaración jurada o querella) para llegar hasta las últimas consecuencias”, indicó González.

Explicó que la Oficina de Seguridad Corporativa de la AEE iniciaría una investigación sobre cualquier denuncia formal con evidencia corroborable y se aplicarían los reglamentos disciplinarios con rigor y, de ser necesario, se harían los referidos correspondientes al Departamento de Justicia o a la Oficina de Ética Gubernamental (OEG).

“Hasta la fecha, la AEE separó de empleo y sueldo a tres empleados de la región de Ponce por solicitar dinero a cambio de reconectar el servicio eléctrico a clientes”, concluyó.

Mientras, el presidente de la Unión de Trabajadores de la Industria Eléctrica y Riego (Utier), Ángel Figueroa Jaramillo, precisó que dichos señalamientos son “rumores” que se habían ventilado desde hace unos meses.

Que vayan a las autoridades

“Nos habíamos expresado al respecto condenando estas alegaciones y estableciendo claramente que rechazamos las mismas y que lo que procede es que los ciudadanos que hacen los señalamientos deben ir a las autoridades correspondientes”, dijo.

Manifestó que dichas denuncias se convierten en una sombra de duda sobre el gran trabajo y la reputación seria de los miles de hombres y mujeres que todos los días trabajan para darle servicio eléctrico al País.

“Si esto es correcto es una excepción y las excepciones se tratan como lo que son, haciendo los señalamientos claros y precisos de estas personas para que las entidades gubernamentales que correspondan puedan investigar y para que los procesen”, finalizó.

Designan fiscales

En tanto, la fiscal general Olga Castellón precisó que Justicia designó fiscales en toda la Isla para trabajar las distintas querellas que se han radicado sobre la AEE y están investigando en conjunto con agentes del Negociado de Investigaciones Especiales (NIE), por lo que una vez concluya la pesquisa de las distintas querellas se estarían informando los resultados.

For its part, the Secretary of Public Affairs of La Fortaleza, Ramón Rosario Cortés, said that any citizen who has suffered an illegal approach of an official must report it. He added that PREPA had reported that they have investigations in progress and any employee who has violated the law must face the consequences.

The journalist Laura Quintero collaborated on this note.

Buscan eliminar departamento de seguridad | GOBIERNO

mikenova shared this story from www.elvocero.com – RSS Results in gobierno of type article.

Legisladores del Partido Popular Democrático (PPD) radicaron proyectos en Cámara y Senado para eliminar el Departamento de Seguridad Pública (DSP) y regresar al modelo en el que todos los componentes de seguridad eran agencias independientes.

El senador José Luis Dalmau y el representante Ramón Luis Cruz argumentaron ayer que, a casi un año de su creación, este departamento no ha conseguido ninguno de sus dos objetivos: reducir costos y frenar la ola criminal.

El DSP fue creado en abril del año pasado con el fin de agrupar bajo una misma sombrilla la Policía, el Cuerpo de Bomberos, Emergencias Médicas, el Sistema de Emergencias 9-1-1, el Instituto de Ciencias Forenses, la Agencia Estatal para el Manejo de Emergencias y el Negociado de Investigaciones Especiales. Los legisladores de la Pava aseguraron que el modelo no funciona y tampoco Héctor Pesquera como secretario de la agencia.

“El gobernador prometió que el Departamento de Seguridad bajaría el crimen y traería ahorros. Ni ha bajado el crimen ni ha traído ahorros”, dijo Dalmau. “Si hay un plan, fracasó. Hay más delitos tipo I, hay más asesinatos, hay más ‘carjackings’. Hay una desorganización y parece que nadie está al mando”, sostuvo.

Cruz, por su parte, indicó que el Negociado de la Policía no está esclareciendo ocho de cada diez asesinatos. “Hay una crisis de liderato en la Policía”, sentenció.

Contractors Are Leaving Puerto Rico, Where Many Still Lack Power

Fluor has already billed the maximum amount allowed under its $750 million contract, and its subcontractors were told last week to pack up.

“Fluor was among the first companies to get here, about a month and a half ago,” Mr. González Otero said, referring to Jayuya. “They said the contract was over, and they left everything half-done.”

“Imagine, I have people here without power for five months who are 80 years old, disabled, bedridden,” he added, “and they were just beginning to see people 50 meters away get their electricity back. They are growing desperate.”

Discovery of cocaine in Russian diplomatic luggage leads to numerous arrests

mikenova shared this story from intelNews.org.

FSB drug arrestsA Russian former diplomatic employee and an Argentine police officer are among six people arrested following the discovery of nearly 1000 pounds of cocaine inside the Russian diplomatic compound in Buenos Aires. The arrests took place last Thursday and were announced in Argentina by the country’s Security Minister Patricia Bullrich. She told reporters that the arrests came after a 14-month investigation in Argentina, Russia and Germany. She added that the investigation unveiled “one of the most complex and extravagant drug-dealing operations” in Argentina’s history.

The 14-month probe dates to December of 2016, when Victor Koronelli, Russia’s ambassador to Argentina, and thee members of Russia’s Federal Security Service, discreetly approached Argentinian authorities. They informed the Argentinians that they had discovered 16 pieces of luggage filled with drugs inside an annex of the Russian embassy in Buenos Aires. Argentinian authorities were given permission to secretly enter the embassy grounds and inspect the suitcases. They confirmed that they contained more than 850 pounds (390 kilos) of cocaine, with a street value of more than $60 million. The suitcases were intended for transfer to Russia via a diplomatic flight. Cargo transferred on diplomatic flights cannot be searched by international customs officials due to the privilege of diplomatic immunity.

According to Bullrich, diplomatic counter-narcotics officers secretly transferred the bags to a separate location, where they replaced the cocaine with flour and fitted the suitcases with GPS tracking devices, before returning them to the Russian embassy annex. The luggage was eventually transferred to Russia via airplane in December 2017, a year after it was bugged by the Argentinians. Several Argentinian customs officers traveled to Russia to monitor the transfer of the shipment, in coordination with Russian authorities. The latter arrested two Russian citizens who tried to collect the suitcases. Another Russian citizen, and former staff member of the Russian embassy in Argentina, Alia Abyanov, was arrested in Moscow. Officials said Abyanov helped plan the transfer of the suitcases to Russia.

Two Argentines with dual Russian citizenship were also arrested in Buenos Aires. One of them has been named as Iván Blizniouk, a police officer, who is believed to have mediated between the drug smugglers and corrupt Argentine customs officers. A seventh suspect, identified only as “Señor K.” by the Argentine authorities, remains at large. He is believed to be living in Germany and is currently wanted by Interpol pursuant to an international warrant that has been issued for his arrest.

Lawmakers propose dismantling of Puerto Rico Public Safety Department Caribbean Business

mikenova shared this story from Caribbean Business.

SAN JUAN – Popular Democratic Party (PDP) minority Rep. Ramón Luis Cruz and Sen. José Luis Dalmau on Monday presented a bill to repeal the law that established the Puerto Rico Department of Public Safety (DSP by its Spanish initials).

The lawmakers said they believe that the elimination of the DSP would reduce bureaucracy, save public funds and return responsibility to the various security agencies to deal with emergencies immediately.

A repeal of Act 20-2017 would restore the duties of the Puerto Rico Police, the Fire Department, Medical Emergencies, State Agency for Emergency and Disaster Management (Aemead by its Spanish acronym), the 9-1-1 emergency calling service, the Institute of Forensic Sciences, the Bureau of Special Investigations, and the Safety and Public Protection Commission.

“Today we face an unprecedented security crisis and [Public Safety Director] Héctor Pesquera has not been able to effectively manage the Department of Public Safety nor implement an anti-crime plan that will produce results,” the PDP legislators stated. (Juan J. Rodríguez / CB)

“The security issue is out of Governor Ricardo Rosselló’s hands. Today we face an unprecedented security crisis and Héctor Pesquera has not been able to effectively manage the Department of Public Safety nor implement an anti-crime plan that produces results. This administration continues with a pattern of ill-advised decisions that have disastrous consequences for our people. So the first step is the repeal of the DSP, and…the $250,000 Pesquera is paid,” Cruz Burgos said at a press conference.

For his part, Dalmau Santiago argued that “the people experience and suffer the insecurity in the streets, in places of recreation and even in their homes as a result of the failure of the Department of Public Safety that Pesquera directs. The increase in the numbers of murders, carjackings and break-ins is alarming. It’s hard to go out on the street or to stop on a highway shoulder without having the great possibility of becoming another victim of crime in mind. How much more has to happen for the government to take action?” he questioned.

The legislators said the administration created the DSP in March with “the belief it would result in a more effective strategy in the fight against crime and with the expectation it would produce savings for the government. However, almost a year after its approval, the results have been contrary to expectations. The Fire Department without communications or equipment; Forensic Sciences failed in [with the deathcount] after the hurricane; Emergency Management has no coordination and is disconnected from working on the emergency, during and after, its recovery coordination duties were eliminated; 9-1-1 System without direction.”

The lawmakers continued listing reasons why their party considers Pesquera was failing.

“We have an agency that has been disintegrating with the questionable exits of the director of the State Agency for Emergency and Disaster Management, and the executive director of the 911 System. We have a leadership crisis and a dislocation in the chain of command of the Police, which also caused the departure of the commissioner [Michelle Hernández]. Eight out of 10 murders are not clarified and there is chaos in the management of the emergency after Hurricane Maria,” they said.

GOP Refuses to Follow Donald Trump’s Money in the Russia Investigation | Thomas Jefferson Street

mikenova shared this story .

FILE- In this Friday, Feb. 23, 2018, file photo, President Donald Trump delivers remarks to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Oxon Hill, Md. Trump is expressing frustration with an immigration program that he says lets other countries nominate undesirable citizens for emigration to the U.S. That path to coming to the U.S. does not exist. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci, File) The Associated Press

The most famous adage in Washington scandals is probably “Follow the money.” Disappointingly, if perhaps not surprisingly, congressional Republicans seem resistant to doing that when it comes to President Donald Trump and the investigation into Russia’s interference into the U.S. political system.

“I don’t see the link at this stage,” Rep. Mike Conaway, the Texas Republican leading the House Russia investigation, told CNN. “Deutsche Bank is a German bank – I don’t see the nexus.”

Asked about exploring Russian-Trump business transactions, Conaway was not moved. “I bet every big bank has a Russian customer somewhere,” he said.

Well sure, every big bank may have some Russian customer somewhere. But there are a couple of things that distinguish Deutsche Bank in this regard. For one thing, it was fined $630 million in January 2017 for its involvement in a $10 billion Russian money-laundering scheme. For another, during the time-period the bank was washing the Russian cash, it was also doling out huge sums of money to reality television star and real estate developer Donald Trump. Deutsche Bank is itself the nexus, in other words. As someone dimly aware of, let alone leading, the Russia investigation, Conaway should know these things.

According to a December 2016 analysis by Bloomberg, Trump owed the German bank roughly $300 million as he was poised to assume the presidency. As The Guardian’s Luke Harding recounts in his book “Collusion: Secret Meetings, Dirty Money, and How Russia Helped Donald Trump Win,” this debt was not only unprecedented but bizarre: He had borrowed the money from Deutsche’s private wealth division, using the money to pay back a $330 million loan that he had defaulted on from the bank’s real estate division. “Asked whether it was normal to give more money to a customer who was a bad credit risk and a litigant, one former senior Deutsche Bank staff member said: ‘Are you [expletive] kidding me?'” Harding wrote.

Cartoons on President Trump and Russia

The fact of the debt in and of itself is something Congress ought to be keeping an eye on regardless of the Russia connection. As Harding writes:

This was an unprecedented sum for an incoming president and one that raised awkward questions about conflict of interest. If Deutsche Bank were to get into regulatory difficulty, one of the bodies that would investigate was the Department of Justice. Which reported to Trump. It was hard to see how the department could work dispassionately. Or how Deutsche Bank might take legal action against a sitting president if he defaulted again.

But the Russia connection adds immediacy to the Deutsche nexus. For all of the prurient interest in whether Trump ever engaged in unsanitary sexual acts with Russian prostitutes, financial enmeshment is another classic way for foreign intelligence agencies to coopt intelligence targets. And while he has long denied Russian business entanglements, the public record, including Donald Trump Jr.’s famous 2008 declaration that “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets. … We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia,” indicates something else. As The Washington Post’s David Ignatius put it last November: “What’s clear, reviewing the facts, is that Trump’s claim he had ‘nothing to do with Russia’ over the years is nonsense.”

Many of the precise details of any Trump financial arrangements with Russia remain a mystery, in no small part because he refuses to follow the long-standing tradition of presidential candidates and presidents releasing their tax returns – a decision with which his Republican congressional defenders seem utterly at ease.

None of this proves that Trump has concerning financial relationships with Russia. But that’s the point: You can’t know what you’re going to find until you look. And there’s enough smoke to at least look and see if something’s on fire – this isn’t some random fishing expedition, as Republicans dismiss it, where Democrats want to open up Trump’s books without any legitimate basis. (Though again, his refusal to disclose his tax returns is itself basis enough.)

Trump has said that looking at his finances qualifies as a red line which would be inappropriate to cross, and incredibly Republicans seem content to follow his lead on the topic.

Another illustrative quote: House Government Reform Chairman Trey Gowdy told Politico: “Isn’t that what Bob Mueller is doing?” Putting aside that such logic would dictate that Congress drop any investigation into Russia at all, the answer is: Yes.

The History Of Comey FBI’s Sexual Proble

mikenova shared this story from The Daily Caller.

  • The Department of Justice inspector general sanctioned at least 14 FBI employees since 2014
  • The majority of sexual impropriety occurred under former FBI Director James Comey
  • Sexual misconduct at the FBI went further than Lisa Page and Peter Strzok

The Department of Justice’s inspector general sanctioned at least 14 FBI agents and officials for a range of improper sexual acts since 2014, and most of the misconduct occurred during former FBI Director James Comey’s term, The Daily Caller News Foundation has determined.

The public got a glimpse into the bureau’s sexual mischief when it was disclosed high-profile FBI officials Lisa Page and Peter Strzok were cheating on their spouses. Special counsel Robert Mueller dumped Page from his investigation on Russian collusion and later removed Strzok after he learned of their relationship.

But it turns out sexual misconduct within the bureau went much further than cheating spouses.

According to the Justice Department inspector general’s enforcement summaries, which TheDCNF reviewed, FBI agents and officials engaged in a variety of improper sexual relationships and harassment throughout the bureau. Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz published at least 14 instances of improper sexual conduct. The latest incident was reported only last week.

The acts entail inappropriate romantic relationships with a subordinate, outright sexual harassment, favoritism or promotion based on demands for sex, and retaliation against women who rebuffed male employee’s advances.

The enforcement summaries show the IG filed not a single sexual misconduct charge against bureau employees from January 2009 until November 2013.  But after that date sexual misconduct charges accelerated, virtually all of them under Comey’s term. The former director joined the FBI in September 2014 and left on May 2017 when President Trump fired him.

Importantly, Horowitz reported Comey attempted to thwart the investigation, as he sought to examine the bureau’s recent history of sexual harassment and misconduct charges.

As Horowitz explained in his March 2015 final report on how law enforcement agencies handle sexual-misconduct complaints, his office’s ability “to conduct this review was significantly impacted and delayed by the repeated difficulties we had in obtaining relevant information from both the FBI and DEA as we were initiating this review in mid-2013.”

Horowitz said the FBI and DEA initially refused to provide his office “with unredacted information that was responsive to our requests.”

After months of protracted discussions with the FBI, the bureau “found that the information was still incomplete.”

Congress denounced Comey’s refusal to open the FBI’s record and eventually led to the passage of the Inspector General Empowerment Act of 2016, which requires all federal departments and agencies to share all records with the IG. It became law on Dec. 16, 2016.

Horowitz told The Washington Post in December 2017 some perpetrators within federal, law enforcement agencies received light punishment for their sexual misconduct. The summary of incidents, listed below, confirms Horowitz’s findings.

Comey and Obama-era Attorney General Lorretta Lynch together fought Horowitz’s determination to fully investigate the bureau’s handling of of sexual misconduct charges.

Lynch supported Comey’s defiance of the IG via a July 20, 2015, memo from DOJ Office of Legal Counsel principal-deputy AG Karl Thompson. Thompson charged law enforcement agencies could redact information in its files and withhold information from the Inspector General. It was one of her first acts as Obama’s new Attorney General, who was sworn in to office on April 27, 2015.

When she issued the memo, Lynch was undermining a 1978 inspector general law that instructed every federal department and agency to permit inspectors general to have access to “all records.”

Horowitz denounced Lynch’s memo in his final, 2015 report on the handling of sexual harassment allegations by various law enforcement agencies. The IG found “significant systemic issues” afflicting how federal law enforcement agencies handled serxual harassment cases, including the FBI.

“The OIG’s ability to conduct this review was significantly impacted and delayed by the repeated difficulties we had in obtaining relevant information” from the FBI, Horrowitz complained in his report.

Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary expressed his anger over Lynch’s memorandum at an August 5, 2015 hearing.

“The FBI is not above the law,” Grassley declared in his opening statement at the hearing. “FBI employees cannot legally be spending their time withholding and reviewing documents before providing them to the IG,” the Iowa Senator stated. “However, this is exactly what the FBI has been doing.”

Horowitz, who is expected to release an explosive report on the FBI’s possible improper use of the Trump dossier to authorize government surveillance of Trump associates, condemned both Comey and Lynch at the August 2015 hearing for trying to upend the inspector general law.

The IG said Lynch’s memo “represents a serious threat to the independence of not only the DOJ-OIG, but to all Inspectors General.”

While the FBI doesn’t prohibit having an affair, it can reflect badly on the integrity and honesty of law enforcement agents.

The bureau understands that illicit affairs “may reflect on the integrity of the employee or the first part of the FBI motto: ‘fidelity,’” said Ron Hosko, a former FBI assistant director in an interview with TheDCNF.

Horowitz said in his March 2015 report that sexual misconduct in a law enforcement agency like the FBI affects its reputation and “undermines its credibility.”

Extra-marital affairs, while not illegal, also can expose an agent to blackmail by foreign powers.

This was particularly true for Strzok who was the FBI’s chief of counterintelligence before he joined Mueller’s special counsel office. As part of his work he routinely came in contact with cases involving national security and hostile powers.

While Mueller removed Strzok from his teams and and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew Mueller forced off Page, the bureau has not taken any public legal action toward the now-famous couple.

Here are the 14 cases of sexual misconduct within the bureau:

  • Tuesday the IG found that a special agent in charge (SAC) of an FBI field office, had an “inappropriate romantic relationship” with a subordinate who also was married. The SAC was married and had a young child at home, according to a source knowledgeable of the case.
  • On June 3, 2016, a  SAC retired after it was disclosed he accepted free rent and lived at the residence of a subordinate FBI special agent in violation of the Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Executive Branch, which prohibits an employee from accepting a gift from a subordinate who receives less pay and is a violation of the FBI Code of Conduct policy.
  • In August 2015, the IG reported that an FBI assistant SAC (ASAC) was temporarily demoted because he made “inappropriate comments of a sexual nature towards employees and made inappropriate physical contact with employees.” The IG interviewed several witnesses “who told the OIG that they were either inappropriately touched or that they had inappropriate comments made to them by the ASAC. Other witnesses said they observed the ASAC engage in such conduct with the employees.” The ASAC denied the allegations, and stated “he did not recall” the specific incidents. “The OIG found the witnesses’ accounts to be consistent, credible, and corroborative of each other” and that he “lacked candor” in his interview.
  • In December 2014, an ASAC was disciplined for sexually harassing an FBI employee. He admitted to engaging in several acts of sexual harassment, including sending the employee an electronic communication containing sexual innuendo and making a sexually-oriented comment at a luncheon.
  • In December 2014, an ASAC was disciplined for making unwanted sexual advances to a special agent and later removing the special agent from his assignment for refusing those advances. He also allegedly selected a replacement for the special agent based on a personal relationship with the replacement. Although the IG investigation found “no evidence” the ASAC made supervisory decisions based solely on a personal relationship, the IG “found that the ASAC’s involvement in decisions benefitting the individual created an appearance of favoritism.”
  • In June 2014, the IG reported that an FBI program analyst was dismissed. While detailed to another federal agency, he arranged for sexual encounters using his work computer. The analyst also “admitted to arranging sexual encounters by using his personal e-mail account accessed through the other agency’s network on his work computer.”
  • In June 2014, an FBI Information Technology specialist and program manager resigned after making multiple unwanted sexual advances towards an FBI contract employee while intoxicated. When the contractor reported the incident to an FBI supervisor, the IT specialist allegedly “threatened to kick the contractor and retaliate against her at work.”
  • In January 2014, the FBI issued disciplinary action against an ASAC who had sexual relationships with and sexually harassed subordinates. He created “a hostile work environment” and disregarded his supervisor’s instruction to inform him if a relationship developed with his subordinate. The FBI determined the ASAC “sexually harassed other female subordinates, had inappropriate sexual contact with two other subordinates while on duty and retaliated against a female special agent after she refused to engage in a romantic relationship with him.”
  • In January 2014, the FBI demoted a SAC who “engaged in a protracted sexual relationship with a foreign national that he deliberately concealed from the FBI.” He also “disclosed sensitive information to the foreign national,” and allowed the foreign national to use FBI-issued iPads and an FBI-issued Blackberry phones on numerous occasions. He also exchanged sexually explicit communications on the Blackberry with the foreign national.
  • In January 2014, an FBI ASAC made “unwanted sexual advances” to an FBI special agent (SA). The ASAC removed the female agent for refusing those advances. “The ASAC was further alleged to have selected a replacement for the SA based on a personal relationship with the replacement.”
  • In November 2013, an FBI Deputy Assistant Director (DAD) resigned after it was determined he was involved in a personal relationship with a direct subordinate that resulted in favoritism. The two exchanged messages on their FBI-issued Blackberry devices. The DAD “failed to disclose the relationship and recuse herself from all official decisions regarding the subordinate, as required by FBI policy, and that the relationship created perceived instances of benefit or favoritism towards the subordinate, in violation of FBI policy.”
  • In May 2013, an ASAC voluntarily removed himself from his position and was reassigned to a GS-13 position for engaging in a relationship with a subordinate employee for a lengthy period that began before and continued after the his promotion to the ASAC position. The investigation also found that the ASAC “was insubordinate by willfully ignoring a former SAC’s instruction to terminate the relationship.”
  • In February 2013, an FBI ASAC was disciplined when he engaged in a relationship with a subordinate FBI employee for a lengthy period. The investigation also found the ASAC was insubordinate by willfully ignoring a former SAC’s instruction to terminate the relationship.
  • In January 2013, an ASAC engaged in romantic relationships with approximately 17 female FBI employees, nine of whom were direct subordinates, “creating a hostile work environment.” The investigation determined the ASAC “sexually harassed other female subordinates, had inappropriate sexual contact with two other subordinates while on duty, and retaliated against a female special agent after she refused to engage in a romantic relationship with him.

The FBI declined to respond to DCNF inquiries about sexual misconduct issues within the bureau.

El narcotráfico motivó la tercera masacre del año en Comerío

mikenova shared this story .

Por Maribel Hernández Pérez 02/25/2018 |04:50 p.m.

La lucha por el control del narcotráfico fue lo que motivó el asesinato de cuatro hombres y una mujer y dejó a un adolescente herido de bala al filo de la medianoche, frente al negocio La Parada del Sonero Sport Bar, localizado en la calle Luis Muñoz Rivera de Comerío.

La masacre, que es la tercera del año ocurrió a eso de las 11:59 p.m. del sábado, elevando los asesinatos a 129, para una diferencia de 27 más en comparación con el 2017.

“Entendemos que a base de las entrevistas y de inteligencia el móvil es por el trasiego de drogas”, afirmó el comisionado auxiliar de Investigación Criminal, teniente coronel José Rosario Polanco, quien no reveló quien era el objetivo de los pistoleros.

Según informes preliminares, varios individuos llegaron en un vehículo color gris con tintes oscuros y abrieron fuego contra las decenas de personas que se encontraban frente al negocio asesinando a Christian Cruz Serrano de 27 años y a sus amigos Nahir Z. Rolón Del Toro de 25 años, residente de Naranjito, a su esposo Luis Armando Torres Morales de 27 años, todos de Naranjito y a Raymond J. Rivera Collazo de 20 años y Ángel Luis Santiago Díaz de 34 años, ambos de Comerío.

De su lado, el comisionado interino de la Policía, Henry Escalera Rivera, sostuvo que se impartieron instrucciones para incrementar la vigilancia no solo en Comerío sino en Naranjito y Bayamón ante la posibilidad de que se desaten más asesinatos.

“La mayoría de estos asesinatos son por acecho, rencillas y la prevención es sumamente difícil”, sostuvo Escalera Rivera, durante una rueda de prensa.

El herido, de 17 años, que es el hijo de una empleada del lugar el cual fue recluido en el Centro Médico de Río Piedras donde fue sometido a una cirugía. Su condición es estable.

Dos días antes que la desgracia tocara a su puerta, Daisy Serrano, madre de Christian, contó que no solo ella, sino que su nieta e hija de Cruz Serrano, de ocho años, comenzaron a experimentar ansiedad como si se tratara de una premonición.

“La nena llevaba estos días (diciendo) mi papá, ¿dónde está mi papá?, préstame el teléfono que voy a llamar a mi papá, es como si ella sintiera que le iba a pasar algo a su papá…Yo lo presentía porque ayer (sábado) como que todo el tiempo sentía como si hubiese habido un revolú, hasta en el trabajo, era como una ansiedad, pero jamás me iba imaginar que era algo así…yo le dije que se recogiera temprano porque la calle estaba mala y las cosas no estaban fáciles”, recordó con resignación Serrano.

La División de Homicidios de Aibonito investigan los hechos junto al fiscal Orlando Velázquez.

Las otras dos masacres ocurrieron el 7 de enero en la carretera PR-860 del sector El Gandúl en Carolina donde ejecutaron a tres individuos y la segunda el 26 de enero en la gasolinera Puma, que ubica en la carretera PR-181 del barrio Espino en San Lorenzo donde tres hombres fueron asesinados y un niño de diez años resultó herido.

They identify victims of slaughter in Comerío | Law and order

COMERIO – The violence surrounded this town of the mountain at the stroke of midnight on Saturday several assassins arrived in a gray Japanese compact on Muñoz Rivera Street and opened fire on a group of young people who shared in front of the store “The Parada del Sonero “, Killing a young woman and four individuals, resulting in a wounded teenager.

The intense shooting resounded in the urban area where more than 100 young people shared in the street and those who mostly disappeared fearful. The authors of the third massacre of 2018 allegedly sought an individual nicknamed “Indian”, who according to the preliminary findings of the investigation was one of the victims.

With this fact the preliminary statistics of murders rose to 129 violent deaths in the first 55 days of 2018, an increase of 27 compared to 2017.

Two other murders were recorded at nightfall on Saturday when a burnt corpse was found and another shot in the Green sector in Rio Grande.

According to the police, two of the victims are neighbors of Comerío, while the woman, her partner and a friend are from El Cerro sector, in Naranjito. Preliminarily it was pointed out that none of the victims had a criminal record.

A group of CIC agents from Aibonito took over the investigation under the direction of Captain José Torres. A Forensic Sciences work team came to the scene.

The victims were identified as Christian Cruz Serrano, 26 years old and resident in Naranjito; Raymond J. Rivera Collazo, 20 years old, resident of Comerío; Ángel Luis (Indio) Santiago Díaz, 34, resident of Comerío; Nahir Z. Rolón Del Toro, 25 years old, and Luis Armando Torres Morales, 27 years old, both from Naranjito.

Interim Commissioner of Police, Henry Escalera Rivera, along with Deputy Commissioner Reinaldo Bermúdez Ortiz and Acting Assistant Commissioner for Criminal Investigations, José Rosario Polanco, went to the scene.

The first massacre of 2018 was registered on January 7 in the sector El Gandul, in Carlina and the second on January 26 in the neighborhood Espino, in San Lorenzo, with three victims each.

They attribute the killing of Comerío to a war for drug points

mikenova shared this story .

Authorities attribute the early morning slaughter in Comerio to a war between rival gangs over the control of drug spots.

Four men and one woman were killed, and a 17-year-old boy was injured after people shot at people who were in front of a shop in the town of Comerío.

” The mobile that there is until now is a fight for the transfer of drugs, ” said Acting Commissioner of the Puerto Rico Police, Henry Escalera .

In a press release, the police identified the victims as Angel Luis Santiago (34 years old), Nahir Rolón(25 years old), Luis Armando Torres (27 years old), Christian Cruz  (26 years old) and Raymond Rivera(20 years old) old).

However, later today, Lieutenant Colonel José Rosario , auxiliary superintendent of Criminal Investigation (SAIC), indicated in a press conference that the identifications are ” preliminary “, with the exception of Cruz, who was identified by his mother.

He argued that confirmation of the identities of others will have to wait for the Institute of Forensic Sciences (ICF).

Rosario said that at the time they had only found that one of the victims had a previous case by Law 54 of “Domestic Violence”, so they could not say if anyone had been involved before in a situation that gave way to the mobile they suspect.

Nor did they detail if they had confirmed information against whom the attack was specifically directed.

Polanco did say that in the scene they occupied a firearm that had one of the victims, while another was found inside the car of another of the deceased.

Because three of the murdered are from Naranjito, Escalera detailed that they established official work plans to monitor that area more closely, given the possibility of reprisals.

For this, it will be necessary to implement a special work plan, according to Escalera, who indicated that at the time of the events, Comerio had only one sergeant and one agent.

To clarify the case, Escalera and Rosario bet on the collaboration between the divisions of the Uniformed to share intelligence information. Comerío corresponds to the Commandery of Aibonito, while Naranjito is in charge of the Commandery of Bayamón.

To corroborate the identities of the alleged gunmen, they also hope to use videos from security cameras.

” Confidences that point to individuals always arise. We do not have to validate it, “affirmed Rosario Polanco.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Five people have been killed and one wounded in a shooting outside a bar in downtown Puerto Rico. Puerto Rican police said the incident occurred around midnight Saturday in the town of Comerio, about 19 miles (30 kilometers) southwest of San Juan.

Police said that witnesses saw a group of men pull up in a vehicle and begin firing at a crowd of people. Five men between the ages of 20 and 34 were killed, and a 17-year-old boy was wounded.

Puerto Rico has struggled with a wave of crime since thousands of police officers began calling in sick to protest millions of dollars owed in overtime pay following Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

Nearly 130 killings have been reported in the U.S. territory since the beginning of the year.
