efe’s YouTube Videos: Subastan obra de Fabelo inspirada por los habanos en 80.000 dólares

From: efe
Duration: 01:16

La Habana, 28 feb (EFE), (Imágenes: Felipe Borrego).- Una obra inspirada en el mundo del tabaco del pintor cubano Roberto Fabelo (Camagüey, 1951), el artista vivo más cotizado de la isla, fue subastado anoche en la capital cubana por 80.000 dólares, la puja más alta que ofreció el comprador Jimmy Ng, un coleccionista de Singapur.

Se trata de un tríptico de dibujos a color sobre cartulina negra (“Voluta rosiverde”, “Voluta pegasus” y “Nodriza”, todos ellos de 2017), que juega con las diversas formas que pueden adoptar las volutas del humo denso de los puros cubanos que se elaboran artesanalmente en la isla.

Puerto Rico Hurricane Recovery Update

Discussions of Puerto Rico now feel as though there is a Before and After: before Hurricanes Irma and Maria hit the territory, and after the disaster struck.

At Puerto Rico Report, our focus is on the political status of Puerto Rico. Current views on the status of Puerto Rico include these:

  • Ignore the political status of Puerto Rico until the Island has recovered from the 2017 Hurricane season. Unfortunately, just like the preceding suggestion of ignoring the political status of Puerto Rico until the Island recovers from the debt crisis, it isn’t really possible. Rebuilding Puerto Rico as a State will be different from rebuilding Puerto Rico as a territory or an independent nation. The status decision has to be made before effective solutions can be implemented.
  • Statehood is the only realistic option for rebuilding Puerto Rico. “Without the equal rights and responsibilities that are only available through statehood, Puerto Rico will never truly recover and prosper from the hurricane effects,” Resident Commissioner Jennifer Gonzalez Colon said on the House floor. “That’s the reason we demand and deserve statehood for Puerto Rico now.”
  • Independence is essential for rebuilding Puerto Rico. Clear statements of this claim are harder to find. However, Carmen Yulín Cruz, Mayor of San Juan said, “I think this is also the time now to look at the relationship between Puerto Rico and the United States and ensure that Puerto Rico stop being a colony of the United States once and for all.” This may imply a commitment to independence for the Island.

We do not see claims that continuing as an unincorporated territory is the best solution for Puerto Rico, but ignoring the political status of the territory would have the effect of leaving Puerto Rico in that status.

How is the disaster recovery going?

FEMA infographic as of October, 2017

FEMA’s reports have focused on the quantity of help being provided.

Puerto Rico’s government website on the disaster, Status.pr, is keeping track of the percentage of people who currently have access to services. As of this writing, some information has not been updated since December.

It is expected that getting the numbers to 100% for basic services will take months more. And as Puerto Rico moves out of crisis mode, creditors are speaking up.

Predictions for recovery depend on what future status is assumed for Puerto Rico, of course, but they tend to estimate decades for full economic recovery.

The post Puerto Rico Hurricane Recovery Update appeared first on Puerto Rico Report.

Puerto Rico Report: Puerto Rico Hurricane Recovery Update

Discussions of Puerto Rico now feel as though there is a Before and After: before Hurricanes Irma and Maria hit the territory, and after the disaster struck.

At Puerto Rico Report, our focus is on the political status of Puerto Rico. Current views on the status of Puerto Rico include these:

  • Ignore the political status of Puerto Rico until the Island has recovered from the 2017 Hurricane season. Unfortunately, just like the preceding suggestion of ignoring the political status of Puerto Rico until the Island recovers from the debt crisis, it isn’t really possible. Rebuilding Puerto Rico as a State will be different from rebuilding Puerto Rico as a territory or an independent nation. The status decision has to be made before effective solutions can be implemented.
  • Statehood is the only realistic option for rebuilding Puerto Rico. “Without the equal rights and responsibilities that are only available through statehood, Puerto Rico will never truly recover and prosper from the hurricane effects,” Resident Commissioner Jennifer Gonzalez Colon said on the House floor. “That’s the reason we demand and deserve statehood for Puerto Rico now.”
  • Independence is essential for rebuilding Puerto Rico. Clear statements of this claim are harder to find. However, Carmen Yulín Cruz, Mayor of San Juan said, “I think this is also the time now to look at the relationship between Puerto Rico and the United States and ensure that Puerto Rico stop being a colony of the United States once and for all.” This may imply a commitment to independence for the Island.

We do not see claims that continuing as an unincorporated territory is the best solution for Puerto Rico, but ignoring the political status of the territory would have the effect of leaving Puerto Rico in that status.

How is the disaster recovery going?

FEMA infographic as of October, 2017

FEMA’s reports have focused on the quantity of help being provided.

Puerto Rico’s government website on the disaster, Status.pr, is keeping track of the percentage of people who currently have access to services. As of this writing, some information has not been updated since December.

It is expected that getting the numbers to 100% for basic services will take months more. And as Puerto Rico moves out of crisis mode, creditors are speaking up.

Predictions for recovery depend on what future status is assumed for Puerto Rico, of course, but they tend to estimate decades for full economic recovery.

The post Puerto Rico Hurricane Recovery Update appeared first on Puerto Rico Report.

efe’s YouTube Videos: Subastan obra de Fabelo inspirada por los habanos en 80.000 dólares

From: efe
Duration: 01:16

La Habana, 28 feb (EFE), (Imágenes: Felipe Borrego).- Una obra inspirada en el mundo del tabaco del pintor cubano Roberto Fabelo (Camagüey, 1951), el artista vivo más cotizado de la isla, fue subastado anoche en la capital cubana por 80.000 dólares, la puja más alta que ofreció el comprador Jimmy Ng, un coleccionista de Singapur.

Se trata de un tríptico de dibujos a color sobre cartulina negra (“Voluta rosiverde”, “Voluta pegasus” y “Nodriza”, todos ellos de 2017), que juega con las diversas formas que pueden adoptar las volutas del humo denso de los puros cubanos que se elaboran artesanalmente en la isla.

Palabras clave: efe,cuba,tabaco,subasta,arte,roberto fabelo

Héctor Pesquera asegura tener evidencia contra el monitor federal
 

mikenova shared this story .

El gobierno de Puerto Rico se apresta a ripostar el último informe del monitor federal y todo apunta a que podría hacerlo adjuntando evidencia documental para demostrarle al juez Gustavo Gelpí que el asesor técnico Arnaldo Claudio ha mantenido un presunto patrón de intromisión indebida con funcionarios, legisladores y agentes, en violación a las disposiciones del Tribunal Federal como parte del acuerdo para la Reforma de la Policía.

Aunque no quiso entrar en detalles sobre las respuestas a los señalamientos que se le hicieron en ese último informe, que abarca el período del 10 de junio al 9 de diciembre de 2017, el secretario del Departamento de Seguridad Pública (DSP), Héctor Pesquera, se defendió de las alegaciones y dejó claro su inconformidad con Claudio.

“Aquí ha habido una intromisión indebida (de Claudio) en las operaciones de la Policía, violentando el acuerdo… Inclusive, ha amenazado y se ha metido a darles instrucciones a oficiales de la Policía. Eso está documentado, no es inventado. Cuando llegue el momento dado, se presentará la evidencia… Todo eso es inaceptable, está fuera del acuerdo y es una completa aberración a sus funciones”, sentenció Pesquera.

En una entrevista a fondo con El Nuevo Día, el titular del DSP no solo habló sobre el informe y lanzó serias acusaciones contra Claudio, sino que reclamó una baja en la estadística global del crimen, aunque la cifra de asesinatos se haya disparado. Dijo estar satisfecho con su desempeño y le restó importancia a la visión de parte de la sociedad que lo ve irradiando arrogancia. No admitió que falló en la recopilación de las muertes a consecuencia del huracán y reconoció que su plan para integrar las siete agencias bajo su sombrilla está atrasado, pero como parte de las secuelas del paso de María.

El informe del monitor federal concluye que Pesquera violó la ley al supuestamente dar órdenes durante la manifestación del 1 de mayo de 2017 contra la Junta de Supervisión Fiscal sin haber sido investido oficialmente con el aval del Senadoque el DSP conflige con la Reforma de la Policía y que hay problemas con la cadena de mando, entre otros.

Pesquera negó todo, aunque dijo que no podía profundizar en cada uno de los hallazgos. El asesor del gobernador, Alfonso Orona, presentará la riposta ante Gelpí.

¿Qué de losacuerdos para implantar la Reforma ya están al menos a mitad de camino?

—Hay muchos, hay varios…

Dice que se ha avanzado, ¿a paso lento, constante o rápido?

—Eso está activamente corriendo con unas métricas y unos tiempos de vigencia… Estoy seguro, a base de los comentarios que ha hecho el señor asesor técnico, que si ese hubiese sido el caso ya hubiera estado en la prensa.

Siento un poco de cinismo en sus expresiones…

—No, ninguno. Es una verdad.

¿Cómo es su comunicación con el monitor federal?

—Yo he tenido muy poca comunicación con él.

¿Usted cree que eso es sano?

—Antes de contestar si es sano o no, hay una persona a cargo de la Policía…

Pero usted está a la cabeza…

—Sí, pero es muy claro y específico el acuerdo, y yo participé de eso. Yo no estoy interviniendo en las operaciones diarias de la Policía… cuando haya que llevar algo que tenga que ver a base de política pública, pues sí… Yo me comunicó con el asesor Orona y con el Departamento de Justicia, y ellos se comunican a nivel del tribunal con las partes.

¿No es crucial su comunicación directa con el monitor, porque hablamos de una reforma de la Policía, que es el jefe del comisionado, que estuvo involucrado en las negociaciones para lograr un acuerdo y que la administración ha ensalzado los lazos con el gobierno federal?

—El acuerdo es válido, donde hay discrepancia es en la participación del asesor técnico que tiene una intromisión en cosas que no le competen.

¿Que el monitor se comunique directamente con el comisionado de la Policía es suficiente?

—No, si necesita comunicarse conmigo él tiene mi teléfono personal… Estoy accesible 100%.

Claudio alega que se le excluye regularmente de las discusiones sobre la implementación de la Ley 20, ¿es cierto?

—El acuerdo dice que el asesor de cumplimiento técnico no puede hacer ningún tipo de acción unilateral con funcionarios públicos… Hay hechos documentados donde él (Claudio), directamente, en violación a las instrucciones del Tribunal, se puso en comunicación con los legisladores (que trabajaban con la Ley 20). Fue una violación al acuerdo y a las instrucciones del juez.

¿Está revelando que Claudio violó las disposiciones del Tribunal y del acuerdo original?

—Sin duda alguna. Documentado, con evidencia.

¿Le dio la evidencia a Gelpí?

—En un momento dado, para que veas la intromisión del asesor de cumplimiento técnico en actividades que no le competen, las dos partes, gobierno y Justicia (federal) le llevaron la preocupación al Tribunal, de que esta persona estaba haciendo cosas que no le competían ni tenía injerencia.

¿Cuándo lo hicieron?

—Enel 2015, también está documentado… El honorable juez Gelpí dio unas instrucciones específicas para que no lo hiciera. Tenemos documentos que indican claramente que violentó el acuerdo yendo a representantes y a legisladores, para exponerles su posición sobre la Ley 20. Es inaceptable, una violación del acuerdo.

¿Claudio ha mantenido un patrón de intromisión indebida?

—Absolutamente, desde el principio y se ha mantenido.

¿Cómo sigue en el cargo?

—No lo puedo contestar. En su debido tiempo, el gobierno de Puerto Rico planteará la situación ante el honorable tribunal… Está documentado, tengo la evidencia.

¿Pedirá cambio de monitor?

—Esa área no quiero tocarla. Le toca al asesor del gobernador y al Departamento de Justicia.

¿Pero lo recomendaría?

—No quiero entrar en el detalle.

Son denuncias bien serias…

—Bien serias, así lo entendemos.

Lo veo indignado…

—Es que aquí se está haciendo ver que uno es el que está en una intromisión indebida y es al revés, lo puedo documentar. Aun en las situaciones en las que él alega que di instrucciones específicas en el evento de 1 de mayo, tengo documentación, no habladuría, donde los oficiales dicen lo contrario. En su debido tiempo, se presentarán en el foro correspondiente.

¿El DSP afecta el acuerdo, como alega el informe?

—Es una posición un poco ridícula.

El monitor dice que la cadena de mando afecta la reforma…

—¿Cuál es la crisis? Esa es la percepción de la crisis…

Crea un ambiente de desconfianza y desmoralización, no queda claro quién manda allí…

—Eso está claro en la ley. El que no sigue la ley ni el acuerdo es él, que le da instrucciones a los policías, que no puede darles.

El informe dice que dio órdenes sin contar con el aval del Senado, ¿porqué lo hizo?

—Estamos partiendo de la premisa equivocada. Dice el asesor de cumplimiento que yo di órdenes… esos policías que alegan que di órdenes que lo documenten. Esa es una de las áreas que no quiero entrar en detalles porque hay que presentarlo al tribunal.

¿Qué hizo usted ese día?

—No estaba allí al principio, sino en Guaynabo. Me llamaron, como asesor del gobernador, que sí era una función que tenía, y me dijeron que regresara, que había un problema. Fui y vi lo que estaba pasando, pregunté, hice comentarios. Estaba el asesor legal (Orona) conmigo. Hubo ciertas cosas que sucedieron, pero órdenes no.

¿Dio órdenes para que se removieran los manifestantes del aeropuerto?

—¿Cómo voy a decir eso? Los manifestantes no se remueven a menos que haya violación de ley. Tienen derechos por la Constitución… No di instrucciones.

¿Ninguna?

—No, pero puedo dar sugerencias.

¿Sus sugerencias se las daba directamente a policías?

—En ninguna de las actividades donde hice algún tipo de comentario fue fuera de la superintendente en aquel momento. Siempre estuvo conmigo.

¿En síntensis no intervino ni dio instrucciones ese día?

—Pero hice comentarios… No estaba dando órdenes

Cuando Pesquera toma la batuta de su defensa lo hace con fuerza y seguridad. Hay un sector del país que lo aplaude, pero hay otros que creen que su proyección es de una arrogancia colosal. Si de algo está seguro, es que no piensa cambiar. Ese es él y punto.

Hay un sector del país que piensa que usted irradia arrogancia, ¿es usted arrogante?

—No vine aquí a ganarme la popularidad, vine a hacer un trabajo. Si a la gente no le gusta como me comunico, lo siento. No voy a cambiar por ningún tipo de presión y menos por presiones políticas.

¿Y usted cree que son comentarios puramente políticos, no de ciudadanos comunes?

—No, tiene que haber ciudadanos que lo consideren. Pero, ¿sabes qué? Lo siento… Así opero y al que no le guste, lo siento mucho.

La acumulación de asesinatos en apenas dos meses mantiene en el paredón público a Pesquera, pero él insiste en que cuando se mira el escenario completo, la realidad es que la criminalidad ha bajado en un 19.8%. La cifra de muertes violentas se ha elevado a 130, 27 más que en el 2017.

No es uno ni dos, son 27 asesinatos más que el pasado año, ¿qué le dicen esas cifras?

—Preocupante y lo estamos atendiendo, pero cuando vemos las estadísticas globales, delitos sobre la persona está 21% menos y delitos sobre la propiedad, 19% menos. Tenemos 19.8% menos en la totalidad de delitos, pero los asesinatos están más 27. Estoy consciente, no estoy justificándolo.

¿En qué se ha fallado?

—Esos son cuestiones individuales de las personas que cometen los asesinatos, no hay una correlación directa… cuando hubo menos 21 el año pasado no hubo un: “¡Ay, qué bueno!” Se ignoró… Esto sube y baja. No se puede decir cómo hemos fallado.

¿Cuál es su plan? El alza en los asesinatos es un hecho.

—Es un hecho…

Y la gente lo ve, se siente insegura. Imagino que ha hecho un análisis de esos asesinatos. ¿Cuál es ese plan?

—Tenemos áreas enlas que sabemos que se han disparado más que en otros años anteriores, pero la correlación entre eventos para decir que fallamos no existe. En un caso como el de Comerío, ¿quién falla? Es imposible predecir eso.

Entiendo eso, pero dígame, ¿cuál es el análisis y el plan?

—La mayoría son por drogas, armas de fuego, en las carreteras, en los fines de semana. ¿Qué estamos haciendo? Estamos recolectando la inteligencia criminal a nivel isla, atacar las áreas e ir contra individuos que entendemos que son los posibles responsables… no existe un lugar en el mundo donde se dispare un tipo de delito, que al otro día se corrija el problema.

Lo que pasa es que no han pasado dos días, estamos hablando de la acumulación de casos en dos meses. ¿Cuál es su plan? ¿Qué regiones deben reforzar?

—San Juan, Carolina y Ponce son las tres regiones donde hemos visto que ha subido en comparación con el año pasado. Pero volvemos: hay más 27 y todo el mundo alega que hay una crisis, pero cuando hubo menos 21 nadie dijo: “Qué bueno”. Ahí, está la diferencia.

¿Pero no hay crisis?

—Yo no veo que haya crisis… hay una preocupación.

A 5 meses del huracán, ¿puede admitir que se equivocó en la recopilación de datos sobre las muertes por el huracán?

—No.

Pesquera insistió en que sin evidencia no se podían sumar casos a la lista de muertes y le dio la bienvenida al estudio que hará la Universidad de George Washington, que le costará al gobierno cerca de los $1.4 millones. La cifra oficial permanece en 64 fallecimientos.

En los ocho meses al frente del DSP, su mayor logro, dijo, ha sido “explicarles” a los comisionados de las siete agencias que componen la sombrilla que dirige la política pública del gobernador Ricardo Rosselló, el enfoque al mejor uso de los recursos y las eficiencias.

La consolidación está atrasada y el gran escollo en ese calendario fue María. Es un proceso complejo y difícil, recalcó, y espera tenerlo aceitado antes de que termine el 2018. El ahorro proyectado será más de $28 millones.

¿Qué es lo más complejo?

—La complejidad de unir las agencias, de mezclar las cuentas bancarias, del personal, que son distintas escalas, que tienen distintas funciones, de los contratos, de buscar la forma de hacer las eficiencias… cómo estandarizar los procedimientos de los contratos, dónde llevar la sede… se paralizó todo por los huracanes.

¿En qué etapa está el proceso de fusionar las siete agencias?

—A punto de terminar no, necesitamos la sede… La primeras agencias deben ser las más pequeñas, para ir poco a poco añadiendo las demás.

¿Cuándo proyecta tener lista la fusión completa?

—Tiene que estar lista este año, en algún momento, sin falta.

Una vez tenga ese proceso administrativo completo, ¿habría movimiento de personal?

—No podemos coger a alguien de otro personal y de buenas a primeras convertirlos en policías. Lo que podemos hacer, y ya estamos trabajando, es sacar todos los policías que están haciendo labores administrativas y reemplazarlos a base del Empleador Único.

¿Cuántos son los policías que están en áreas administrativas?

—Casi 900, muchísimos.

¿El problema de ausentismo ya se controló?

—Eso se resolvió. Lo que hay son 20 o 30 a nivel isla, lo normal.

¿Cuántos cuarteles aún no están funcionado?

—No es tanto los que estén sin funcionar, sino los que están funcionando en condiciones que no sean las correctas… Te anticipo que en el estudio de necesidades, están los cuarteles, cuáles pueden ser eliminados y, digamos regionalizados. Tener un cuartel que le sirva a un área donde tres o cuatro no sean necesarios porque el personal no justifica.

¿Qué debe mejorar?

—Yo necesito la sede para integrar la primera agencia. Estamos trabajando afanosamente.

¿Considera que la gente está satisfecha con su desempeño?

—Por lo que veo en la calle, sí.

¿Porqué debemos seguirle pagando un salario de $248,500?

—Es el salario que necesito para sobrevivir… invirtieron en una persona con conocimiento, credibilidad, habilidades para trabajar con el sistema estatal, federal y municipal. Esa es la razón.

¿Los resultados que tiene hasta ahora valen esa inversión?

—Yo trabajo 16, 18 horas… Yo entiendo que sí.

Guardian family murdered in Puerto Rico denounces forensic science chaos
 

mikenova shared this story .

The relatives of Sean Collins denounced in the media of Staten Island in New York that the system in Puerto Rico does not work and that they had not been able to receive the body of the guard, who was found dead in a car on February 20, to take him to his hometown and give him burial.

The complaint of the relative was reported by the portal Silver.com that cites his brother-in-law, David Drogon clamoring for help to be able to have the body of the guard, who visited the island as part of a vacation after his work in Puerto Rico to restore electric service.

“It is totally unacceptable what is happening to my family and I am really furious,” said Drogon. I have explained that they do not want to incinerate the remains of Collins in Puerto Rico, because they want to bury him with his father in a cemetery in his town. In fact, he said they already have the funeral home ready to complete the arrangements, eleven the body arrives in Staten Island.

According to the US media, “dealing with the morgue has been one of the most distressing aspects of the family’s unfathomable experience.” Although the body of Collins was taken to the Institute of Forensic Sciences on Tuesday, February 20, the family was not notified and even on Friday, February 23, they asked for help on television to find the man they considered missing.
“His family simply drove to the morgue and we found it, then it was the family that reported the police, and not the other way around,” the deceased’s brother-in-law said.

He said his anguish has since gone on forever, despite the family’s repeated requests, Drogon said.

The man denounced that the morgue where Collins’s body was kept for the last week does not have the ability to adequately preserve the bodies for long periods of time.

“It’s not the police,” Dorgon said, adding that the cops have returned Collins’ belongings to the family.

The family recognized Collins’ tattoos, performed the autopsy and performed the toxicology tests, but Forensic Science has not yet identified him scientifically, although dental records have been provided, Drogon said. “They do not need to do anything else, what are they waiting for?” He added, clearly exasperated.

He added that the family has communicated with local politicians in Puerto Rico and that Congressman Dan Donovan has helped. “We have been in repeated contact with senior Puerto Rican officials about what is happening and our intervention has been effective,” said a spokesman for Donovan.

Drogon believes that the family may need help from the highest levels of government, perhaps even President Trump.

He asked people to pressure officials at all levels through social media and other forms of communication from Staten Island to Puerto Rico so that Collins can return home.
The journalist David Begnaud, who has followed closely all the news related to Puerto Rico since the scourge of Hurricane Maria said he knew that the body was finally delivered to the family after six days of its discovery.

Alcalde de Isabela se une a voces que piden la renuncia de Héctor Pesquera

San Juan  – The mayor of Isabela, Charlie Delgado Altieri, joined this Tuesday, to the public demand that leaders of different parties have made, so that the secretary of the Department of Public Safety leaves his position.

“Given the increase in crime and the lack of a plan, specific actions are required to address the problem. If Governor Ricardo Rosselló, through the Secretary of Fisheries, can not control the criminal wave, ask him to resign and give him a person to do the work. We can not allow crime to continue wrapping our streets, “said Delgado Altieri in written statements.

– Advertising –

Also, the mayor said that although the municipalities have resources from the Municipal Police, they need the support of the State Police to prevent criminal acts.

“Pesquera has left us alone and few resources have been assigned to the municipalities to work together and in coordination in the fight against crime. The preventive rounds have been reduced significantly, which has led to an increase in robberies and escalations, “he said.

“At a time when the number of murders amounts to 134, and five other cases are in the Institute of Forensic Sciences wait for confirmation, the governor must not only accept the resignation of Hector Pesquera, but assume his responsibility as First Executive and recognize that his anticrime plan failed. Mr. Governor, the mayors of all the political parties expect action on your part and dismiss Pesquera from his position immediately, “said Delgado Altieri.

Body of Staten Island man, 29, reportedly found in Puerto Rico
 

mikenova shared this story from Staten Island Real-Time News.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The body of a 29-year-old Staten Island man was found in Puerto Rico, according to media reports.

Sean Collins, 29, reportedly was found dead inside a Nissan Versa on Feb. 20, according to the Puerto Rican news website ElVocero.com.

Public records indicate that Collins lived in Sunnyside. He was a linesman for Northline Utilities on Staten Island and a member of IBEW Local 3, according to social media posts.

Collins had spent time in Puerto Rico to help restore power after Hurricane Maria, but returned back home in January, according to reports.

He traveled to Puerto Rico for the President’s Day weekend to visit friends and stayed in the Intercontinental Hotel on Isla Verde, according to <a href=”http://ElVocero.com” rel=”nofollow”>ElVocero.com</a>.

On that Monday, Feb. 19, he was booked to return to New York on a United Airlines flight that he never boarded, <a href=”http://ElVocero.com” rel=”nofollow”>ElVocero.com</a> said.

He was reported missing by a friend on Feb. 21, the day after his body was found, according to El Vocero.

While it is not clear how he died, authorities don’t believe foul play was involved, according to a report by NBCNewYork.com.

According to El Vocero, because there are no signs of violence, it may take weeks for authorities to determine the cause of death.

Social media posts indicated that Collins rented the Nissan Versa.

Friends posted on social media that Collins was missing and paid tribute to him after his body was found.

Denuncian “retroceso” con la Reforma de la Policía | Ley y orden

Representantes de dos de las organizaciones sin fines de lucro, que integran el Grupo Comuntario de Trabajo de la Reforma de la Policía (Grupocorpo), compartieron hoy su impresión de que bajo el Departamento de Seguridad Pública ha habido un “retroceso” en el cumplimiento con la política de uso apropiado de la fuerza.

“El señor (Héctor) Pesquera nunca ha sido amigo de la Reforma de la Policía… Ha habido un retroceso”, afirmó María Mari Narváez, autora del informe No se dispara de la baqueta, desarrollado por la organización Espacios Abiertos, integrante de Grupocorpo.

Tanto Mari como Rubén Kondrup, de Amnistía Internacional PR, se refirieron durante la conferencia de prensa a lo ocurrido en la última manifestación de la Milla de Oro convocada por Jornada Se Acabaron Las Promesas, en la que hubo agresiones físicas y hasta se atropelló a un manifestante, que tuvo que ser llevado al hospital.

“En varios vídeos se ve que es la misma policía, la que está instigando… Hay un vídeo de un policía empujando a un manifestante que no estaba haciendo nada”, mencionó Kondrup.

“En esta ocasión, hay un retroceso porque una persona tuvo que ir al hospital. Ahí golpearon. No solamente tiraron pepper spray, que fue uno de los peores elementos de las últimas manifestaciones, que lo hicieron ilegalmente, sin hacer las debidas advertencias. Lo dice el monitor (federal) también. El monitor también establece que ni un solo policía (para el 1 de mayo de 2017) había sido adiestrado en la nueva política de manejo de multitudes”, expresó Mari.

Ambas organizaciones se aliaron para lanzar el proyecto Oficial, tengo derechos, que ya ha ofrecido talleres y adiestramientos a más de 600 personas, y cuyas recomendaciones para guardar los derechos humanos se encuentran en el portal web oficialtengoderechos.org.

El informe No se dispara de la baqueta analiza los datos de la Policía sobre muertes, mutilaciones y daños graves a manos de agentes de la Uniformada para los años 2014 a 2016.

Mari, autora del informe, encontró que 12 personas fallecieron en 2015 en incidentes relacionados al uso de fuerza de la Policía y nueve personas fallecieron en 2016, según los datos de esa agencia.

También, 19 personas resultaron con mutilaciones o daños mayores para 2015 por incidentes relacionados al uso de fuerza de la Policía de Puerto Rico. Mientras, en el año 2016 fueron 11 personas, según el informe.

Aunque Mari observó que la política de uso de fuerza cumple con seis de los ocho criterios desarrollados por Campaign Zero, una organización estadounidense que combate la violencia policíaca, se les ha dificultado su ejecutoria.

“Tenemos una política de uso de fuerza que en papel luce bien, pero todavía hay una gran brecha entre la letra y la acción”, afirmó Mari.

Ricky Martin has enjoyed the success of “Despacito”

Madrid – With a Latin Grammy under his arm for his previous album, “To whoever wants to listen”, Ricky Martin already looks at the summer with “Fever”, theme in which his pop style returns to play with the reggaeton when they still resonate throughout the planet echoes another milestone of the merger, “Despacito” by his compatriot Luis Fonsi .

“I think I have enjoyed more than him with his success, I have not only because he comes from Puerto Rico, but because he is a good man and a true musician, hungry for applause, who has taken our language everywhere,” assures Ask him if he feels like a pioneer of a musical formula under which other musicians have triumphed after his steps.

In that sense, in a talk held in a brief stop in Madrid with his children, can not but congratulated for their meeting in “Fever” with other compatriots of his, the global figures of the Latin urban Wisin & Yandel.

“I can not only get into the genre of pop, where I was born, if I can play a bit with reggaeton, jazz or rock, why not, they are both warriors who are always thinking and they have a very contagious creative march “, underlines who does not rule out or try the” trap “” as long as it is done well “.

It is not the only meeting, since “Fever” comes signed, among its eleven composers (including Martin himself), by the Spanish Beatriz Luengo and the Cuban Yotuel Romero (Orishas), who signed many of the themes included in “Whoever wants to listen “(2015).

“They know me very well, because everything they write is very much I. With them I won the Grammy and I dedicate it to them, because they gave me their art,” says the Puerto Rican, for whom it is not a problem to delegate to others the search for your own voice

Thus, he downplays those who criticize that a single song can be the fruit of so many hands.

“The moment you think you know everything, it’s the moment you lost, I like to rub shoulders with people from different countries and see music in different ways, I’ve never been a purist, what runs for my life it’s fusion “, he emphasizes.

Martin, who will soon return to Las Vegas to extend his musical residence after the success of the first round, has recently combined his musical side with another that had more abandoned: the interpretation.

In the second season of the television series “American Crime Story”, which bears the label of producer Ryan Murphy and recreates the murder of Gianni Versace, he plays the famous couturier’s lover with Edgar Ramírez and Penelope Cruz .

“I’m flying, I see the episodes and I cry again, I get angry, I laugh … I remember one day when we said that something very good we should have done in this life for the three of us to have fallen in that set. responsibility to be next to Penelope, winner of an Oscar, “he proclaims.

At this point, Martin does not rule out insisting on his career as an actor, a route he opened at age 15 that has taken him to the small screen, but also to venues like Broadway.

“The performance was always there, the wave of music pushed me and never released me, but now I’m in a moment of my life where I have to go back to that beginning, to that tingling sensation that I felt when I was 15 years old. experience has taken away nerves and insecurities that came with me to break the glass and reach very intense levels of interpretation, “he says.

That includes the scenes of homosexual sex that he stars in “American Crime Story,” something he downplays.

“I’ve never had problems with the nude, it’s our natural state, it’s beautiful, but you have to do it and take good care of it, what we’ve done in the series may be uncomfortable, but we had to be firm with a story. I undressed in front of the camera and the public congratulated me for it “, he presumes.

There is no date of new projects, as there is no date for his next album, whose creative spit was opened with the previous single, “Vente pa’cá”.

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.

Según el representante, en los primeros 56 días de 2018 se reportaron 130 asesinatos, 591 vehículos hurtados y 121 “carjackings”.

“No se sabe quién manda en la Policía y hay conflicto de quién establece la cadena de mando. No hay una estrategia que redunde en reducir el crimen”, afirmó Cruz.

La medida, en su exposición de motivos, da cuenta de las reservas expresadas por el monitor federal Arnaldo Claudio, quien en un informe reciente criticó la cadena de mando en el DSP y expresó preocupación de que no contribuya a cumplir con la reforma de la Policía.

El departamento, dice el proyecto, “se convirtió en un súper departamento que lejos de acercar la solución de los problemas de seguridad pública, los ha agudizado por su burocracia, que al mismo tiempo, lejos de significar un manejo costo efectivo de los recursos del Estado, ha sido más caro, con una marcada reducción en la calidad de los servicios”.

Rechazan la propuesta

En tanto, el liderato del Partido Nuevo Progresista (PNP) en el Capitolio dejó saber que no eliminarán el DSP. Los presidentes de las comisiones de Seguridad, Henry Neumann en el Senado y Félix Lasalle en la Cámara, dijeron no estar de acuerdo con que se elimine esta sombrilla.

Neumann dijo que esta idea ha tenido “mucho éxito” en otras jurisdicciones y que hay que darle tiempo para que funcione.

“No ha empezado a funcionar. Tuvimos los problemas relacionados con los huracanes, tuvimos las bajas que sufrieron los comisionados que originalmente estaban. No se le ha dado la oportunidad para poder funcionar”, indicó Neumann.

“El problema no es Héctor Pesquera tampoco. Puedes cambiar a Héctor Pesquera y llega otro mañana con los mismos problemas. El problema es que la Policía no tiene las herramientas necesarias para poder defendernos”, manifestó el senador.

Lasalle, por su parte, expresó que “la parte importante no es atacar el departamento, sino ir a ver cómo vamos a trabajar con un plan de seguridad”.

El vicepresidente del Senado, Larry Seilhamer, tampoco favoreció eliminar la agencia. “Me parece que lo que hay es que refinarla. Tenemos que hacerle unos ajustes a esa sombrilla y examinar cómo ha sido el comportamiento y la eficiencia hasta el momento para poder hacer los ajustes”, afirmó.

Contractors Are Leaving Puerto Rico, Where Many Still Lack Power
 

mikenova shared this story .

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.”

Fluor’s crews would not be the first contractors to leave abruptly. After a scandal erupted over the Puerto Rico government’s award of its first power restoration contract, worth $300 million, to a small Montana firm, Whitefish Energy, the government canceled the deal.

Many people involved in power restoration said that officials overseeing the work were disappointed with the Army Corps of Engineers contractors. Fluor in particular was criticized for working sluggishly and using up the money available under its contract without accomplishing as much as expected.

Fluor is a Texas-based construction giant that has done more than $30 billion in government work over the past four decades, much of it for the Defense Department, federal records show.

“I understand that they were slow — super slow,” Mr. González Otero said. “Now we don’t have anyone, slow or at all. We have no one.”

Justo González, the interim executive director of the island’s government-owned utility, the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, also was critical of Fluor’s performance.

“We compared, and saw better work from other companies,” Mr. González said in an interview.

Even so, he said, the corps’s decision to let the Fluor workers leave was worrisome.

“It concerns me,” he said. “It can affect our ability to energize. We wanted them to continue. What do I want? To energize as quickly as possible.”

A spokesman for Fluor denied that there had been any questions about its work.

“To date, we have restored power to 250,000 customers by fixing 7,500 poles, installing 462 miles of wire, more than 20,000 conductors, and repaired 170 transmission lines,” the company said. Under the limits set by the contract on the time and money to be expended, the company said, “we are reaching the end of both, and have been directed by the corps to begin transitioning people and equipment off of the island.”

The corps said that restoring power to some of the hardest-hit areas of Puerto Rico, including Arecibo and Caguas, would take a few more months. The “right number of restoration workers” were “actively engaged” in completing the job, the corps said in a statement.

“We will not rest until we have the lights back on for all of our fellow American citizens in Puerto Rico,” Col. Jason Kirk said in the statement.

Ahsha Tribble, who oversees power efforts for the Federal Emergency Management Agency in Puerto Rico, said it was unfair to single out Fluor for leaving before restoration was complete, because other private companies that came to the island from New York and other states under mutual assistance agreements were also considering scaling back soon.

“At 86 percent restoration, we are starting to shave off people,” Ms. Tribble said. “In any normal course of restoration, you ramp up until you start getting your successes, and then you begin to start ramping down.”

Many of the remaining areas without power are in mountainous regions where it is not possible to squeeze in thousands of workers at once, she said.

Island residents, many of them still struggling to get basic services, were surprised by the corps’s announcement.

“We are so appreciative of everything these people have done — these workers risked their lives coming here, working in dangerous helicopters and all of that,” said Nydia Guzmán, 72, who spent Friday at one of the utility’s customer service offices, along with dozens of other customers who were disputing their bills.

“But they can’t leave now,” Ms. Guzmán said. “There’s too much left to be done.”

Héctor Pesquera asegura tener evidencia contra el monitor federal

mikenova shared this story .

El gobierno de Puerto Rico se apresta a ripostar el último informe del monitor federal y todo apunta a que podría hacerlo adjuntando evidencia documental para demostrarle al juez Gustavo Gelpí que el asesor técnico Arnaldo Claudio ha mantenido un presunto patrón de intromisión indebida con funcionarios, legisladores y agentes, en violación a las disposiciones del Tribunal Federal como parte del acuerdo para la Reforma de la Policía.

Aunque no quiso entrar en detalles sobre las respuestas a los señalamientos que se le hicieron en ese último informe, que abarca el período del 10 de junio al 9 de diciembre de 2017, el secretario del Departamento de Seguridad Pública (DSP), Héctor Pesquera, se defendió de las alegaciones y dejó claro su inconformidad con Claudio.

“Aquí ha habido una intromisión indebida (de Claudio) en las operaciones de la Policía, violentando el acuerdo… Inclusive, ha amenazado y se ha metido a darles instrucciones a oficiales de la Policía. Eso está documentado, no es inventado. Cuando llegue el momento dado, se presentará la evidencia… Todo eso es inaceptable, está fuera del acuerdo y es una completa aberración a sus funciones”, sentenció Pesquera.

En una entrevista a fondo con El Nuevo Día, el titular del DSP no solo habló sobre el informe y lanzó serias acusaciones contra Claudio, sino que reclamó una baja en la estadística global del crimen, aunque la cifra de asesinatos se haya disparado. Dijo estar satisfecho con su desempeño y le restó importancia a la visión de parte de la sociedad que lo ve irradiando arrogancia. No admitió que falló en la recopilación de las muertes a consecuencia del huracán y reconoció que su plan para integrar las siete agencias bajo su sombrilla está atrasado, pero como parte de las secuelas del paso de María.

El informe del monitor federal concluye que Pesquera violó la ley al supuestamente dar órdenes durante la manifestación del 1 de mayo de 2017 contra la Junta de Supervisión Fiscal sin haber sido investido oficialmente con el aval del Senadoque el DSP conflige con la Reforma de la Policía y que hay problemas con la cadena de mando, entre otros.

Pesquera negó todo, aunque dijo que no podía profundizar en cada uno de los hallazgos. El asesor del gobernador, Alfonso Orona, presentará la riposta ante Gelpí.

¿Qué de losacuerdos para implantar la Reforma ya están al menos a mitad de camino?

—Hay muchos, hay varios…

Dice que se ha avanzado, ¿a paso lento, constante o rápido?

—Eso está activamente corriendo con unas métricas y unos tiempos de vigencia… Estoy seguro, a base de los comentarios que ha hecho el señor asesor técnico, que si ese hubiese sido el caso ya hubiera estado en la prensa.

Siento un poco de cinismo en sus expresiones…

—No, ninguno. Es una verdad.

¿Cómo es su comunicación con el monitor federal?

—Yo he tenido muy poca comunicación con él.

¿Usted cree que eso es sano?

—Antes de contestar si es sano o no, hay una persona a cargo de la Policía…

Pero usted está a la cabeza…

—Sí, pero es muy claro y específico el acuerdo, y yo participé de eso. Yo no estoy interviniendo en las operaciones diarias de la Policía… cuando haya que llevar algo que tenga que ver a base de política pública, pues sí… Yo me comunicó con el asesor Orona y con el Departamento de Justicia, y ellos se comunican a nivel del tribunal con las partes.

¿No es crucial su comunicación directa con el monitor, porque hablamos de una reforma de la Policía, que es el jefe del comisionado, que estuvo involucrado en las negociaciones para lograr un acuerdo y que la administración ha ensalzado los lazos con el gobierno federal?

—El acuerdo es válido, donde hay discrepancia es en la participación del asesor técnico que tiene una intromisión en cosas que no le competen.

¿Que el monitor se comunique directamente con el comisionado de la Policía es suficiente?

—No, si necesita comunicarse conmigo él tiene mi teléfono personal… Estoy accesible 100%.

Claudio alega que se le excluye regularmente de las discusiones sobre la implementación de la Ley 20, ¿es cierto?

—El acuerdo dice que el asesor de cumplimiento técnico no puede hacer ningún tipo de acción unilateral con funcionarios públicos… Hay hechos documentados donde él (Claudio), directamente, en violación a las instrucciones del Tribunal, se puso en comunicación con los legisladores (que trabajaban con la Ley 20). Fue una violación al acuerdo y a las instrucciones del juez.

¿Está revelando que Claudio violó las disposiciones del Tribunal y del acuerdo original?

—Sin duda alguna. Documentado, con evidencia.

¿Le dio la evidencia a Gelpí?

—En un momento dado, para que veas la intromisión del asesor de cumplimiento técnico en actividades que no le competen, las dos partes, gobierno y Justicia (federal) le llevaron la preocupación al Tribunal, de que esta persona estaba haciendo cosas que no le competían ni tenía injerencia.

¿Cuándo lo hicieron?

—Enel 2015, también está documentado… El honorable juez Gelpí dio unas instrucciones específicas para que no lo hiciera. Tenemos documentos que indican claramente que violentó el acuerdo yendo a representantes y a legisladores, para exponerles su posición sobre la Ley 20. Es inaceptable, una violación del acuerdo.

¿Claudio ha mantenido un patrón de intromisión indebida?

—Absolutamente, desde el principio y se ha mantenido.

¿Cómo sigue en el cargo?

—No lo puedo contestar. En su debido tiempo, el gobierno de Puerto Rico planteará la situación ante el honorable tribunal… Está documentado, tengo la evidencia.

¿Pedirá cambio de monitor?

—Esa área no quiero tocarla. Le toca al asesor del gobernador y al Departamento de Justicia.

¿Pero lo recomendaría?

—No quiero entrar en el detalle.

Son denuncias bien serias…

—Bien serias, así lo entendemos.

Lo veo indignado…

—Es que aquí se está haciendo ver que uno es el que está en una intromisión indebida y es al revés, lo puedo documentar. Aun en las situaciones en las que él alega que di instrucciones específicas en el evento de 1 de mayo, tengo documentación, no habladuría, donde los oficiales dicen lo contrario. En su debido tiempo, se presentarán en el foro correspondiente.

¿El DSP afecta el acuerdo, como alega el informe?

—Es una posición un poco ridícula.

El monitor dice que la cadena de mando afecta la reforma…

—¿Cuál es la crisis? Esa es la percepción de la crisis…

Crea un ambiente de desconfianza y desmoralización, no queda claro quién manda allí…

—Eso está claro en la ley. El que no sigue la ley ni el acuerdo es él, que le da instrucciones a los policías, que no puede darles.

El informe dice que dio órdenes sin contar con el aval del Senado, ¿porqué lo hizo?

—Estamos partiendo de la premisa equivocada. Dice el asesor de cumplimiento que yo di órdenes… esos policías que alegan que di órdenes que lo documenten. Esa es una de las áreas que no quiero entrar en detalles porque hay que presentarlo al tribunal.

¿Qué hizo usted ese día?

—No estaba allí al principio, sino en Guaynabo. Me llamaron, como asesor del gobernador, que sí era una función que tenía, y me dijeron que regresara, que había un problema. Fui y vi lo que estaba pasando, pregunté, hice comentarios. Estaba el asesor legal (Orona) conmigo. Hubo ciertas cosas que sucedieron, pero órdenes no.

¿Dio órdenes para que se removieran los manifestantes del aeropuerto?

—¿Cómo voy a decir eso? Los manifestantes no se remueven a menos que haya violación de ley. Tienen derechos por la Constitución… No di instrucciones.

¿Ninguna?

—No, pero puedo dar sugerencias.

¿Sus sugerencias se las daba directamente a policías?

—En ninguna de las actividades donde hice algún tipo de comentario fue fuera de la superintendente en aquel momento. Siempre estuvo conmigo.

¿En síntensis no intervino ni dio instrucciones ese día?

—Pero hice comentarios… No estaba dando órdenes

Cuando Pesquera toma la batuta de su defensa lo hace con fuerza y seguridad. Hay un sector del país que lo aplaude, pero hay otros que creen que su proyección es de una arrogancia colosal. Si de algo está seguro, es que no piensa cambiar. Ese es él y punto.

Hay un sector del país que piensa que usted irradia arrogancia, ¿es usted arrogante?

—No vine aquí a ganarme la popularidad, vine a hacer un trabajo. Si a la gente no le gusta como me comunico, lo siento. No voy a cambiar por ningún tipo de presión y menos por presiones políticas.

¿Y usted cree que son comentarios puramente políticos, no de ciudadanos comunes?

—No, tiene que haber ciudadanos que lo consideren. Pero, ¿sabes qué? Lo siento… Así opero y al que no le guste, lo siento mucho.

La acumulación de asesinatos en apenas dos meses mantiene en el paredón público a Pesquera, pero él insiste en que cuando se mira el escenario completo, la realidad es que la criminalidad ha bajado en un 19.8%. La cifra de muertes violentas se ha elevado a 130, 27 más que en el 2017.

No es uno ni dos, son 27 asesinatos más que el pasado año, ¿qué le dicen esas cifras?

—Preocupante y lo estamos atendiendo, pero cuando vemos las estadísticas globales, delitos sobre la persona está 21% menos y delitos sobre la propiedad, 19% menos. Tenemos 19.8% menos en la totalidad de delitos, pero los asesinatos están más 27. Estoy consciente, no estoy justificándolo.

¿En qué se ha fallado?

—Esos son cuestiones individuales de las personas que cometen los asesinatos, no hay una correlación directa… cuando hubo menos 21 el año pasado no hubo un: “¡Ay, qué bueno!” Se ignoró… Esto sube y baja. No se puede decir cómo hemos fallado.

¿Cuál es su plan? El alza en los asesinatos es un hecho.

—Es un hecho…

Y la gente lo ve, se siente insegura. Imagino que ha hecho un análisis de esos asesinatos. ¿Cuál es ese plan?

—Tenemos áreas enlas que sabemos que se han disparado más que en otros años anteriores, pero la correlación entre eventos para decir que fallamos no existe. En un caso como el de Comerío, ¿quién falla? Es imposible predecir eso.

Entiendo eso, pero dígame, ¿cuál es el análisis y el plan?

—La mayoría son por drogas, armas de fuego, en las carreteras, en los fines de semana. ¿Qué estamos haciendo? Estamos recolectando la inteligencia criminal a nivel isla, atacar las áreas e ir contra individuos que entendemos que son los posibles responsables… no existe un lugar en el mundo donde se dispare un tipo de delito, que al otro día se corrija el problema.

Lo que pasa es que no han pasado dos días, estamos hablando de la acumulación de casos en dos meses. ¿Cuál es su plan? ¿Qué regiones deben reforzar?

—San Juan, Carolina y Ponce son las tres regiones donde hemos visto que ha subido en comparación con el año pasado. Pero volvemos: hay más 27 y todo el mundo alega que hay una crisis, pero cuando hubo menos 21 nadie dijo: “Qué bueno”. Ahí, está la diferencia.

¿Pero no hay crisis?

—Yo no veo que haya crisis… hay una preocupación.

A 5 meses del huracán, ¿puede admitir que se equivocó en la recopilación de datos sobre las muertes por el huracán?

—No.

Pesquera insistió en que sin evidencia no se podían sumar casos a la lista de muertes y le dio la bienvenida al estudio que hará la Universidad de George Washington, que le costará al gobierno cerca de los $1.4 millones. La cifra oficial permanece en 64 fallecimientos.

En los ocho meses al frente del DSP, su mayor logro, dijo, ha sido “explicarles” a los comisionados de las siete agencias que componen la sombrilla que dirige la política pública del gobernador Ricardo Rosselló, el enfoque al mejor uso de los recursos y las eficiencias.

La consolidación está atrasada y el gran escollo en ese calendario fue María. Es un proceso complejo y difícil, recalcó, y espera tenerlo aceitado antes de que termine el 2018. El ahorro proyectado será más de $28 millones.

¿Qué es lo más complejo?

—La complejidad de unir las agencias, de mezclar las cuentas bancarias, del personal, que son distintas escalas, que tienen distintas funciones, de los contratos, de buscar la forma de hacer las eficiencias… cómo estandarizar los procedimientos de los contratos, dónde llevar la sede… se paralizó todo por los huracanes.

¿En qué etapa está el proceso de fusionar las siete agencias?

—A punto de terminar no, necesitamos la sede… La primeras agencias deben ser las más pequeñas, para ir poco a poco añadiendo las demás.

¿Cuándo proyecta tener lista la fusión completa?

—Tiene que estar lista este año, en algún momento, sin falta.

Una vez tenga ese proceso administrativo completo, ¿habría movimiento de personal?

—No podemos coger a alguien de otro personal y de buenas a primeras convertirlos en policías. Lo que podemos hacer, y ya estamos trabajando, es sacar todos los policías que están haciendo labores administrativas y reemplazarlos a base del Empleador Único.

¿Cuántos son los policías que están en áreas administrativas?

—Casi 900, muchísimos.

¿El problema de ausentismo ya se controló?

—Eso se resolvió. Lo que hay son 20 o 30 a nivel isla, lo normal.

¿Cuántos cuarteles aún no están funcionado?

—No es tanto los que estén sin funcionar, sino los que están funcionando en condiciones que no sean las correctas… Te anticipo que en el estudio de necesidades, están los cuarteles, cuáles pueden ser eliminados y, digamos regionalizados. Tener un cuartel que le sirva a un área donde tres o cuatro no sean necesarios porque el personal no justifica.

¿Qué debe mejorar?

—Yo necesito la sede para integrar la primera agencia. Estamos trabajando afanosamente.

¿Considera que la gente está satisfecha con su desempeño?

—Por lo que veo en la calle, sí.

¿Porqué debemos seguirle pagando un salario de $248,500?

—Es el salario que necesito para sobrevivir… invirtieron en una persona con conocimiento, credibilidad, habilidades para trabajar con el sistema estatal, federal y municipal. Esa es la razón.

¿Los resultados que tiene hasta ahora valen esa inversión?

—Yo trabajo 16, 18 horas… Yo entiendo que sí.

Guardian family murdered in Puerto Rico denounces forensic science chaos

mikenova shared this story .

The relatives of Sean Collins denounced in the media of Staten Island in New York that the system in Puerto Rico does not work and that they had not been able to receive the body of the guard, who was found dead in a car on February 20, to take him to his hometown and give him burial.

The complaint of the relative was reported by the portal Silver.com that cites his brother-in-law, David Drogon clamoring for help to be able to have the body of the guard, who visited the island as part of a vacation after his work in Puerto Rico to restore electric service.

“It is totally unacceptable what is happening to my family and I am really furious,” said Drogon. I have explained that they do not want to incinerate the remains of Collins in Puerto Rico, because they want to bury him with his father in a cemetery in his town. In fact, he said they already have the funeral home ready to complete the arrangements, eleven the body arrives in Staten Island.

According to the US media, “dealing with the morgue has been one of the most distressing aspects of the family’s unfathomable experience.” Although the body of Collins was taken to the Institute of Forensic Sciences on Tuesday, February 20, the family was not notified and even on Friday, February 23, they asked for help on television to find the man they considered missing.
“His family simply drove to the morgue and we found it, then it was the family that reported the police, and not the other way around,” the deceased’s brother-in-law said.

He said his anguish has since gone on forever, despite the family’s repeated requests, Drogon said.

The man denounced that the morgue where Collins’s body was kept for the last week does not have the ability to adequately preserve the bodies for long periods of time.

“It’s not the police,” Dorgon said, adding that the cops have returned Collins’ belongings to the family.

The family recognized Collins’ tattoos, performed the autopsy and performed the toxicology tests, but Forensic Science has not yet identified him scientifically, although dental records have been provided, Drogon said. “They do not need to do anything else, what are they waiting for?” He added, clearly exasperated.

He added that the family has communicated with local politicians in Puerto Rico and that Congressman Dan Donovan has helped. “We have been in repeated contact with senior Puerto Rican officials about what is happening and our intervention has been effective,” said a spokesman for Donovan.

Drogon believes that the family may need help from the highest levels of government, perhaps even President Trump.

He asked people to pressure officials at all levels through social media and other forms of communication from Staten Island to Puerto Rico so that Collins can return home.
The journalist David Begnaud, who has followed closely all the news related to Puerto Rico since the scourge of Hurricane Maria said he knew that the body was finally delivered to the family after six days of its discovery.

Alcalde de Isabela se une a voces que piden la renuncia de Héctor Pesquera

San Juan  – The mayor of Isabela, Charlie Delgado Altieri, joined this Tuesday, to the public demand that leaders of different parties have made, so that the secretary of the Department of Public Safety leaves his position.

“Given the increase in crime and the lack of a plan, specific actions are required to address the problem. If Governor Ricardo Rosselló, through the Secretary of Fisheries, can not control the criminal wave, ask him to resign and give him a person to do the work. We can not allow crime to continue wrapping our streets, “said Delgado Altieri in written statements.

Also, the mayor said that although the municipalities have resources from the Municipal Police, they need the support of the State Police to prevent criminal acts.

“Pesquera has left us alone and few resources have been assigned to the municipalities to work together and in coordination in the fight against crime. The preventive rounds have been reduced significantly, which has led to an increase in robberies and escalations, “he said.

“At a time when the number of murders amounts to 134, and five other cases are in the Institute of Forensic Sciences wait for confirmation, the governor must not only accept the resignation of Hector Pesquera, but assume his responsibility as First Executive and recognize that his anticrime plan failed. Mr. Governor, the mayors of all the political parties expect action on your part and dismiss Pesquera from his position immediately, “said Delgado Altieri.

Body of Staten Island man, 29, reportedly found in Puerto Rico

mikenova shared this story from Staten Island Real-Time News.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The body of a 29-year-old Staten Island man was found in Puerto Rico, according to media reports.

Sean Collins, 29, reportedly was found dead inside a Nissan Versa on Feb. 20, according to the Puerto Rican news website ElVocero.com.

Public records indicate that Collins lived in Sunnyside. He was a linesman for Northline Utilities on Staten Island and a member of IBEW Local 3, according to social media posts.

Collins had spent time in Puerto Rico to help restore power after Hurricane Maria, but returned back home in January, according to reports.

He traveled to Puerto Rico for the President’s Day weekend to visit friends and stayed in the Intercontinental Hotel on Isla Verde, according to <a href=”http://ElVocero.com” rel=”nofollow”>ElVocero.com</a>.

On that Monday, Feb. 19, he was booked to return to New York on a United Airlines flight that he never boarded, <a href=”http://ElVocero.com” rel=”nofollow”>ElVocero.com</a> said.

He was reported missing by a friend on Feb. 21, the day after his body was found, according to El Vocero.

While it is not clear how he died, authorities don’t believe foul play was involved, according to a report by NBCNewYork.com.

According to El Vocero, because there are no signs of violence, it may take weeks for authorities to determine the cause of death.

Social media posts indicated that Collins rented the Nissan Versa.

Friends posted on social media that Collins was missing and paid tribute to him after his body was found.

Denuncian “retroceso” con la Reforma de la Policía | Ley y orden

Representantes de dos de las organizaciones sin fines de lucro, que integran el Grupo Comuntario de Trabajo de la Reforma de la Policía (Grupocorpo), compartieron hoy su impresión de que bajo el Departamento de Seguridad Pública ha habido un “retroceso” en el cumplimiento con la política de uso apropiado de la fuerza.

“El señor (Héctor) Pesquera nunca ha sido amigo de la Reforma de la Policía… Ha habido un retroceso”, afirmó María Mari Narváez, autora del informe No se dispara de la baqueta, desarrollado por la organización Espacios Abiertos, integrante de Grupocorpo.

Tanto Mari como Rubén Kondrup, de Amnistía Internacional PR, se refirieron durante la conferencia de prensa a lo ocurrido en la última manifestación de la Milla de Oro convocada por Jornada Se Acabaron Las Promesas, en la que hubo agresiones físicas y hasta se atropelló a un manifestante, que tuvo que ser llevado al hospital.

“En varios vídeos se ve que es la misma policía, la que está instigando… Hay un vídeo de un policía empujando a un manifestante que no estaba haciendo nada”, mencionó Kondrup.

“En esta ocasión, hay un retroceso porque una persona tuvo que ir al hospital. Ahí golpearon. No solamente tiraron pepper spray, que fue uno de los peores elementos de las últimas manifestaciones, que lo hicieron ilegalmente, sin hacer las debidas advertencias. Lo dice el monitor (federal) también. El monitor también establece que ni un solo policía (para el 1 de mayo de 2017) había sido adiestrado en la nueva política de manejo de multitudes”, expresó Mari.

Ambas organizaciones se aliaron para lanzar el proyecto Oficial, tengo derechos, que ya ha ofrecido talleres y adiestramientos a más de 600 personas, y cuyas recomendaciones para guardar los derechos humanos se encuentran en el portal web oficialtengoderechos.org.

El informe No se dispara de la baqueta analiza los datos de la Policía sobre muertes, mutilaciones y daños graves a manos de agentes de la Uniformada para los años 2014 a 2016.

Mari, autora del informe, encontró que 12 personas fallecieron en 2015 en incidentes relacionados al uso de fuerza de la Policía y nueve personas fallecieron en 2016, según los datos de esa agencia.

También, 19 personas resultaron con mutilaciones o daños mayores para 2015 por incidentes relacionados al uso de fuerza de la Policía de Puerto Rico. Mientras, en el año 2016 fueron 11 personas, según el informe.

Aunque Mari observó que la política de uso de fuerza cumple con seis de los ocho criterios desarrollados por Campaign Zero, una organización estadounidense que combate la violencia policíaca, se les ha dificultado su ejecutoria.

“Tenemos una política de uso de fuerza que en papel luce bien, pero todavía hay una gran brecha entre la letra y la acción”, afirmó Mari.

Ricky Martin has enjoyed the success of “Despacito”

Madrid – With a Latin Grammy under his arm for his previous album, “To whoever wants to listen”, Ricky Martin already looks at the summer with “Fever”, theme in which his pop style returns to play with the reggaeton when they still resonate throughout the planet echoes another milestone of the merger, “Despacito” by his compatriot Luis Fonsi .

“I think I have enjoyed more than him with his success, I have not only because he comes from Puerto Rico, but because he is a good man and a true musician, hungry for applause, who has taken our language everywhere,” assures Ask him if he feels like a pioneer of a musical formula under which other musicians have triumphed after his steps.

In that sense, in a talk held in a brief stop in Madrid with his children, can not but congratulated for their meeting in “Fever” with other compatriots of his, the global figures of the Latin urban Wisin & Yandel.

“I can not only get into the genre of pop, where I was born, if I can play a bit with reggaeton, jazz or rock, why not, they are both warriors who are always thinking and they have a very contagious creative march “, underlines who does not rule out or try the” trap “” as long as it is done well “.

It is not the only meeting, since “Fever” comes signed, among its eleven composers (including Martin himself), by the Spanish Beatriz Luengo and the Cuban Yotuel Romero (Orishas), who signed many of the themes included in “Whoever wants to listen “(2015).

“They know me very well, because everything they write is very much I. With them I won the Grammy and I dedicate it to them, because they gave me their art,” says the Puerto Rican, for whom it is not a problem to delegate to others the search for your own voice

Thus, he downplays those who criticize that a single song can be the fruit of so many hands.

“The moment you think you know everything, it’s the moment you lost, I like to rub shoulders with people from different countries and see music in different ways, I’ve never been a purist, what runs for my life it’s fusion “, he emphasizes.

Martin, who will soon return to Las Vegas to extend his musical residence after the success of the first round, has recently combined his musical side with another that had more abandoned: the interpretation.

In the second season of the television series “American Crime Story”, which bears the label of producer Ryan Murphy and recreates the murder of Gianni Versace, he plays the famous couturier’s lover with Edgar Ramírez and Penelope Cruz .

“I’m flying, I see the episodes and I cry again, I get angry, I laugh … I remember one day when we said that something very good we should have done in this life for the three of us to have fallen in that set. responsibility to be next to Penelope, winner of an Oscar, “he proclaims.

At this point, Martin does not rule out insisting on his career as an actor, a route he opened at age 15 that has taken him to the small screen, but also to venues like Broadway.

“The performance was always there, the wave of music pushed me and never released me, but now I’m in a moment of my life where I have to go back to that beginning, to that tingling sensation that I felt when I was 15 years old. experience has taken away nerves and insecurities that came with me to break the glass and reach very intense levels of interpretation, “he says.

That includes the scenes of homosexual sex that he stars in “American Crime Story,” something he downplays.

“I’ve never had problems with the nude, it’s our natural state, it’s beautiful, but you have to do it and take good care of it, what we’ve done in the series may be uncomfortable, but we had to be firm with a story. I undressed in front of the camera and the public congratulated me for it “, he presumes.

There is no date of new projects, as there is no date for his next album, whose creative spit was opened with the previous single, “Vente pa’cá”.

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

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

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.

Según el representante, en los primeros 56 días de 2018 se reportaron 130 asesinatos, 591 vehículos hurtados y 121 “carjackings”.

“No se sabe quién manda en la Policía y hay conflicto de quién establece la cadena de mando. No hay una estrategia que redunde en reducir el crimen”, afirmó Cruz.

La medida, en su exposición de motivos, da cuenta de las reservas expresadas por el monitor federal Arnaldo Claudio, quien en un informe reciente criticó la cadena de mando en el DSP y expresó preocupación de que no contribuya a cumplir con la reforma de la Policía.

El departamento, dice el proyecto, “se convirtió en un súper departamento que lejos de acercar la solución de los problemas de seguridad pública, los ha agudizado por su burocracia, que al mismo tiempo, lejos de significar un manejo costo efectivo de los recursos del Estado, ha sido más caro, con una marcada reducción en la calidad de los servicios”.

Rechazan la propuesta

En tanto, el liderato del Partido Nuevo Progresista (PNP) en el Capitolio dejó saber que no eliminarán el DSP. Los presidentes de las comisiones de Seguridad, Henry Neumann en el Senado y Félix Lasalle en la Cámara, dijeron no estar de acuerdo con que se elimine esta sombrilla.

Neumann dijo que esta idea ha tenido “mucho éxito” en otras jurisdicciones y que hay que darle tiempo para que funcione.

“No ha empezado a funcionar. Tuvimos los problemas relacionados con los huracanes, tuvimos las bajas que sufrieron los comisionados que originalmente estaban. No se le ha dado la oportunidad para poder funcionar”, indicó Neumann.

“El problema no es Héctor Pesquera tampoco. Puedes cambiar a Héctor Pesquera y llega otro mañana con los mismos problemas. El problema es que la Policía no tiene las herramientas necesarias para poder defendernos”, manifestó el senador.

Lasalle, por su parte, expresó que “la parte importante no es atacar el departamento, sino ir a ver cómo vamos a trabajar con un plan de seguridad”.

El vicepresidente del Senado, Larry Seilhamer, tampoco favoreció eliminar la agencia. “Me parece que lo que hay es que refinarla. Tenemos que hacerle unos ajustes a esa sombrilla y examinar cómo ha sido el comportamiento y la eficiencia hasta el momento para poder hacer los ajustes”, afirmó.

Contractors Are Leaving Puerto Rico, Where Many Still Lack Power

mikenova shared this story .

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.”

Fluor’s crews would not be the first contractors to leave abruptly. After a scandal erupted over the Puerto Rico government’s award of its first power restoration contract, worth $300 million, to a small Montana firm, Whitefish Energy, the government canceled the deal.

Many people involved in power restoration said that officials overseeing the work were disappointed with the Army Corps of Engineers contractors. Fluor in particular was criticized for working sluggishly and using up the money available under its contract without accomplishing as much as expected.

Fluor is a Texas-based construction giant that has done more than $30 billion in government work over the past four decades, much of it for the Defense Department, federal records show.

“I understand that they were slow — super slow,” Mr. González Otero said. “Now we don’t have anyone, slow or at all. We have no one.”

Justo González, the interim executive director of the island’s government-owned utility, the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, also was critical of Fluor’s performance.

“We compared, and saw better work from other companies,” Mr. González said in an interview.

Even so, he said, the corps’s decision to let the Fluor workers leave was worrisome.

“It concerns me,” he said. “It can affect our ability to energize. We wanted them to continue. What do I want? To energize as quickly as possible.”

A spokesman for Fluor denied that there had been any questions about its work.

“To date, we have restored power to 250,000 customers by fixing 7,500 poles, installing 462 miles of wire, more than 20,000 conductors, and repaired 170 transmission lines,” the company said. Under the limits set by the contract on the time and money to be expended, the company said, “we are reaching the end of both, and have been directed by the corps to begin transitioning people and equipment off of the island.”

The corps said that restoring power to some of the hardest-hit areas of Puerto Rico, including Arecibo and Caguas, would take a few more months. The “right number of restoration workers” were “actively engaged” in completing the job, the corps said in a statement.

“We will not rest until we have the lights back on for all of our fellow American citizens in Puerto Rico,” Col. Jason Kirk said in the statement.

Ahsha Tribble, who oversees power efforts for the Federal Emergency Management Agency in Puerto Rico, said it was unfair to single out Fluor for leaving before restoration was complete, because other private companies that came to the island from New York and other states under mutual assistance agreements were also considering scaling back soon.

“At 86 percent restoration, we are starting to shave off people,” Ms. Tribble said. “In any normal course of restoration, you ramp up until you start getting your successes, and then you begin to start ramping down.”

Many of the remaining areas without power are in mountainous regions where it is not possible to squeeze in thousands of workers at once, she said.

Island residents, many of them still struggling to get basic services, were surprised by the corps’s announcement.

“We are so appreciative of everything these people have done — these workers risked their lives coming here, working in dangerous helicopters and all of that,” said Nydia Guzmán, 72, who spent Friday at one of the utility’s customer service offices, along with dozens of other customers who were disputing their bills.

“But they can’t leave now,” Ms. Guzmán said. “There’s too much left to be done.”

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.

1:31 PM 2/28/2018 – Héctor Pesquera vs Arnaldo Claudio – Google Search

Mi humilde opinión en pocas palabras: “If there is the perception of the crisis, then there is the crisis. If there is a smoke, there must be a fire. In public politics, the perceptions become the realities, be it justified or not” – By Michael Novakhov – 2.28.18 | 7:19 AM 2/28/2018 – Héctor Pesquera – Google News: Héctor Pesquera asegura tener evidencia contra el monitor federal – El Nuevo Dia.com

El secretario del Departamento de Seguridad Pública, Héctor Pesquera (horizontal-x3)

“In an in-depth interview with El Nuevo Día , the head of the DSP not only spoke about the report and launched serious accusations against Claudio , but called for a drop in the overall statistics of the crime, although the number of murders has skyrocketed. He said he was satisfied with his performance and played down the vision of the society that sees him radiating arrogance. He did not admit that he failed to compile the deaths as a result of the hurricane and acknowledged that his plan to integrate the seven agencies under his umbrella is behind schedule, but as part of the sequels of Maria’s passage… 

Does the DSP affect the agreement, as the report claims?

-It’s a bit ridiculous position.

The monitor says that the chain of command affects the reform …

-What is the crisis? That is the perception of the crisis…” 

My humble opinion in a few words 

Mi humilde opinión en pocas palabras 

Mr. Pesquera, If there is the perception of the crisis, then there is the crisis. If there is a smoke, there must be a fire. In public politics, the perceptions become the realities, be it justified or not. 

The attacks on Mr. Claudio only mean that he is doing his job and that he is doing it well, as it is expected of him. 

These are not the times for the personal squabbles, personally tinged conflicts or vendettas. The recent wave of murders, some of which might contain the defiant and intimidating messages to the authorities (“Deporte es Comerio“), indicate that the Law and Order situation on the Island, and especially in the provinces, is not controlled adequately. Is this a war going on between the criminal elements with the certain suspicious, nationalistically colored, moods, ideology, and motivations, who hide in the mountains and jungles of the Island on the one hand, and the inefficient, corrupt “La Uniformada” on the other? The infrastructure and the economic rebuilding cannot proceed without restoration of Law and Order. The new approaches toward the resolution of this situation should be thought out and considered.

I hear the voice of the good policeman who says: “Arrest, arrest, and arrest! This is the solution to your problems. And ship them to the mainland, they will be treated there more fairly than anywhere else.”

But at the same time, and this might be even more important:

provide the social services, feed the people, address their needs and emergencies, deal with them on the equal footing, not looking at them from the above positions of power.

Puerto Ricans have the good and old traditions of social ties, mutual help, and solidarity; and these traditions have to be put to good use. 

The DOJ and Mr. Sessions personally might be willing to look into this situation, to interfere into it, and to restore the normal and efficient functioning of the police, emergency services, and other relevant power structures. This will prove one more time that nothing happens and nothing will ever happen in Puerto Rico without the attention, interference, and help from the central mainland authorities. Is Mr. Claudio’s latest report, covering the second half of 2017, published? I could not find it on the internet so far. I think, it should be published, just like the previous ones (in due time, if the delay is needed), and we all should read and study it, and to pay attention to the details. This matter is of enormous public importance for Puerto Rico. 

My thinking is that both Mr. Pesquera and Mr. Claudio should keep their jobs, and everyone must work harder, putting the power struggles aside and dealing with this crisis situation.

The specifics of the discussion on the criminogenic situation in Purto Rico are interesting: 

Quote:

It’s not one or two, it’s 27 murders more than last year, what do those figures tell you?

– Worried and we are taking care of it, but when we see the global statistics, crimes on the person are 21% less and crimes on the property, 19% less. We have 19.8% less in the totality of crimes, but the murders are more 27. I am aware, I am not justifying it.

What has been failed?

-These are individual issues of the people who commit the murders, there is no direct correlation … when there were less 21 last year there was no: “Oh, that’s good!” He ignored … This goes up and down. You can not say how we failed.

What is your plan? The rise in murders is a fact.

-It is a fact…

And people see it, it feels insecure. I imagine he has done an analysis of those murders. What is that plan?

-We have areas in which we know that they have shot more than in previous years, but the correlation between events to say that we fail does not exist. In a case like Comerío’s, who fails? It is impossible to predict that.

I understand that, but tell me, what is the analysis and the plan?

-The majority are for drugs, firearms, on the roads, on weekends. What are we doing? We are collecting criminal intelligence islandwide, target areas and go against individuals who understand that are possibly responsible … there is no place in the world where one type of crime is fired, that the next day the problem is corrected.”

________________

The following questions and issues arise: 

“There is no direct correlation…” between the homicides statistics and the homicides putative causal factors.

Or: there is no causal logical connection between the statistical increases in homicides and their implied reasons. These things happen at random, the reasons for killings and their circumstances are highly individual, no common threads can be discerned, and therefore whatever measures taken will have only the minimal effect, and the police, including the concepts and the strategies of the policing, cannot be faulted for the statistical increases in murders. Is this so? Yes and no, but this is quite an interesting point from the criminological point of view, and it deserves the further, informed, educated, and objective study and discussion. 

In criminology, just like in medicine, you are called to relieve the individual and social (e.g. murders, etc.) suffering and pain, even if you do not know for sure or at all their causes and mechanisms. You have “to do something” with some knowledge and hope that this intervention might help. Sometimes, apparently, no intervention might be better than any intervention, but this happens rarely. Most often we “do something” and it does help somewhat. 

With regard to the persistent and completely justified interviewer’s questions about the specific plan of dealing with the problem of killings in Puerto Rico, he did not get any specific answers from Mr. Pesquera, just skillfully evasive asides. But I think, this might be to Mr. Pesquera’s credit: no general will talk about his battle plans. But it is also indisputable that some plan is better than no plan. Mr. Pesquera does not have to tell us the specifics of his plan or plans if he has any. Their success will be judged by the next batch of the homicide statistics within the next year, and that’s how it is, fair or not. A good general is a victorious general, the one who wins. 

I think that the good (deep, comprehensive, objective, practical) criminological analysis might be helpful in understanding, formulating, and dealing with the crime situation and crime problems in Puerto Rico, and the input of criminologists is desirable. We need, as always, the correct diagnosis and the correct treatment. As simple as that. And as always, this is easier said than done. 

With regard to “radiating arrogance”, I actually agree with him: it is not his job to be nice, and he can “radiate” anything he wants to, as long as he gets the results. Again, that’s what counts. Hopefully, it will be a good radiation. Communications and/or their lack, thereof, can be the problem or the solution. It all depends on their “chemistry” and the circumstances.

Héctor Pesquera claims to have evidence against the federal monitor

The Chief of Public Safety denied that he gave orders during the demonstration on May 1, 2017 and accused the technical advisor of violating orders of the Court

Wednesday, February 28, 2018 – 6:00 AM

On the allegations related to the protest on May 1, Héctor Pesquera said “the one who is getting involved here, in specific areas that do not belong to him, is the advisor of technical compliance”, Arnaldo Claudio

The government of Puerto Rico is preparing to reject the last report of the federal monitor and everything points to it could do so by attaching documentary evidence to demonstrate to Judge Gustavo Gelpí that technical advisor Arnaldo Claudio has maintained a presumed pattern of undue interference with officials, legislators and agents, in violation of the provisions of the Federal Court as part of the agreement for the Reform of the Police.

Although he did not want to go into details about the responses to the accusations made in that last report, which covers the period from June 10 to December 9, 2017, the secretary of the Department of Public Security (DSP), Héctor Pesquera , He defended himself against the allegations and made clear his disagreement with Claudio.

“Here there has been an undue interference (by Claudio) in the operations of the Police, violating the agreement … He has even threatened and has given instructions to police officers. That is documented, it is not invented. When the time comes, the evidence will be presented … All this is unacceptable, it is outside the agreement and it is a complete aberration to its functions, “Pesquera said.

In an in-depth interview with El Nuevo Día , the head of the DSP not only spoke about the report and launched serious accusations against Claudio , butcalled for a drop in the overall statistics of the crime, although the number of murders has skyrocketed. He said he was satisfied with his performance and played down the vision of the society that sees him radiating arrogance. He did not admit that he failed to compile the deaths as a result of the hurricane and acknowledged that his plan to integrate the seven agencies under his umbrella is behind schedule, but as part of the sequels of Maria’s passage.

The federal monitor’s report concludes that Pesquera violated the law by allegedly giving orders during the May 1, 2017 demonstration against theFiscal Oversight Board without having been formally endorsed by the Senate , which the DSP conflides with the reform of the Police and that there are problems with the chain of command, among others.

Pesquera denied everything, although he said he could not go deeply into each of the findings. The governor’s advisor, Alfonso Orona, will present the riposte before Gelpi.

What of the agreements to implement the reform are already at least halfway?

-There are many, there are several …

Does it say that progress has been made, at a slow, steady or fast pace?

-That is actively running with some metrics and some times of validity … I am sure, based on the comments made by the technical adviser, that if that had been the case I would have been in the press.

I feel a bit of cynicism in their expressions …

-None. It is a truth.

How is your communication with the federal monitor?

-I have had very little communication with him.

Do you think that is healthy?

-Before answering whether it is healthy or not, there is a person in charge of the Police …

But you are in the lead …

– Yes, but the agreement is very clear and specific, and I participated in that. I am not intervening in the daily operations of the Police … when it is necessary to take something that has to do with public policy, yes … I communicated with the Orona counselor and with the Department of Justice, and they they communicate at the court level with the parties.

Is not your direct communication with the monitor crucial, because we are talking about a reform of the Police, which is the head of the commissioner, who was involved in the negotiations to reach an agreement and that the administration has extolled the ties with the federal government?

-The agreement is valid, where there is a discrepancy in the participation of the technical advisor who has an interference in things that do not concern him.

Is it enough for the monitor to communicate directly with the Commissioner of the Police?

-No, if you need to communicate with me he has my personal telephone number … I am 100% accessible.

Claudio alleges that he is regularly excluded from discussions on the implementation of Law 20, is that true?

-The agreement says that the technical compliance advisor can not make any kind of unilateral action with public officials … There are documented facts where he (Claudio), directly, in violation of the instructions of the Court, put himself in communication with the legislators (who worked with Law 20). It was a violation of the agreement and the judge’s instructions.

Are you revealing that Claudio violated the provisions of the Court and the original agreement?

-Undoubtedly. Documented, with evidence.

Did you give the evidence to Gelpi?

-In a given moment, so that you see the interference of the technical compliance advisor in activities that do not concern you, both parties, government and Justice (federal) brought the concern to the Court, that this person was doing things that do not they competed or had interference.

When did they do it?

-In 2015, it is also documented … The honorable judge Gelpí gave specific instructions so that he would not do it. We have documents that clearly indicate that it violated the agreement by going to representatives and legislators, to expose their position on Law 20. It is unacceptable, a violation of the agreement.

Claudio has maintained a pattern of undue interference?

-Absolutely, from the beginning and it has been maintained.

How is he still in office?

-I can not answer it. In due time, the government of Puerto Rico will present the situation before the honorable court … It is documented, I have the evidence.

Will you ask for a monitor change?

-That area I do not want to touch it. It’s up to the governor’s advisor and the Justice Department.

But would you recommend it?

-I do not want to go into the detail.

They are very serious complaints …

-Well, serious, that’s how we understand it.

I see him indignant …

-It is that here it is being made to see that one is the one that is in an undue meddling and it is the other way around, I can document it. Even in the situations in which he alleges that I gave specific instructions at the May 1 event, I have documentation, not gossip, where the officers say otherwise. In due time, they will be presented in the corresponding forum.

ADVERTISING

Does the DSP affect the agreement, as the report claims?

-It’s a bit ridiculous position.

The monitor says that the chain of command affects the reform …

-What is the crisis? That is the perception of the crisis …

It creates an environment of distrust and demoralization, it is not clear who is in charge there …

-That is clear in the law. The one who does not follow the law or the agreement is he, who gives instructions to the police, who can not give them.

Héctor Pesquera: “I am my person and I will not change”
The secretary of the Department of Public Safety made it clear that he will not be censored because “I did not come here to gain popularity”

 

00:00

01:20

The report says that he gave orders without having the endorsement of the Senate, why did he do it?

-We are starting from the wrong premise. The compliance advisor says that I gave orders … those cops who claim that I gave orders to document it. That is one of the areas that I do not want to go into details because you have to present it to the court.

What did you do that day?

-I was not there at the beginning, but in Guaynabo. They called me, as an advisor to the governor, that it was a function I had, and they told me to come back, that there was a problem. I went and saw what was going on, I asked, I made comments. There was the legal advisor (Orona) with me. There were certain things that happened, but no orders.

Did he give orders to remove the protesters from the airport?

-How am I going to say that? Protesters are not removed unless there is a violation of law. They have rights for the Constitution … I did not give instructions.

Any?

-No, but I can give suggestions.

Did your suggestions go directly to the police?

– In none of the activities where I made any kind of comment was outside the superintendent at that time. He was always with me.

In syn- thesis did you not intervene or give instructions that day?

-But I made comments … I was not giving orders

When Pesquera takes the baton of his defense he does it with strength and security.There is a sector of the country that applauds it, but there are others who believe that its projection is of colossal arrogance. If he is sure of something, he does not think to change. That is him, period.

There is a sector of the country that thinks that you radiate arrogance, are you arrogant?

-I did not come here to earn popularity, I came to do a job. If people do not like the way I communicate, I’m sorry. I will not change for any kind of pressure and less for political pressures.

And do you think they are purely political comments, not ordinary citizens?

-No, there must be citizens who consider it. But you know what? I’m sorry … That’s how I operate and if you do not like it, I’m very sorry.

The accumulation of murders in just two months keeps Pesquera on the public wall, but he insists that when you look at the whole scenario, the reality is that crime has dropped by 19.8%. The number of violent deaths has risen to 130, 27 more than in 2017.

ADVERTISING

It’s not one or two, it’s 27 murders more than last year, what do those figures tell you?

– Worried and we are taking care of it, but when we see the global statistics, crimes on the person are 21% less and crimes on the property, 19% less. We have 19.8% less in the totality of crimes, but the murders are more 27. I am aware, I am not justifying it.

What has been failed?

-These are individual issues of the people who commit the murders, there is no direct correlation … when there were less 21 last year there was no: “Oh, that’s good!” He ignored … This goes up and down. You can not say how we failed.

What is your plan? The rise in murders is a fact.

-It is a fact…

And people see it, it feels insecure. I imagine he has done an analysis of those murders. What is that plan?

-We have areas in which we know that they have shot more than in previous years, but the correlation between events to say that we fail does not exist. In a case like Comerío’s, who fails? It is impossible to predict that.

I understand that, but tell me, what is the analysis and the plan?

-The majority are for drugs, firearms, on the roads, on weekends. What are we doing? We are collecting criminal intelligence islandwide, target areas and go against individuals who understand that are possibly responsible … there is no place in the world where one type of crime is fired, that the next day the problem is corrected.

What happens is that not two days have passed, we are talking about the accumulation of cases in two months. What is your plan? Which regions should they reinforce?

-San Juan, Carolina and Ponce are the three regions where we have seen that has risen compared to last year. But we go back: there are more 27 and everyone claims that there is a crisis, but when there was less 21 nobody said: “That’s good”. There, is the difference.

But there is no crisis?

– I do not see that there is crisis … there is a concern.

Five months after the hurricane, can you admit that you were wrong in collecting data on the deaths from the hurricane?

-Do not.

Pesquera insisted that without evidence you could not add cases to the list of deaths and welcomed him to the study that will make the University of George Washington, which will cost the government about $ 1.4 million. The official figure remains at 64 deaths.

ADVERTISING

In the eight months at the head of the DSP, his greatest achievement, he said, has been to “explain” to the commissioners of the seven agencies that make up the umbrella that governs the public policy of Governor Ricardo Rosselló, the approach to the best use of resources and the efficiencies.

The consolidation is delayed and the great stumbling block in that calendar was María. It is a complex and difficult process, he stressed, and he hopes to have it oiled before the end of 2018. The projected savings will be more than $ 28 million.

What is the most complex?

-The complexity of joining the agencies, of mixing the bank accounts, of the personnel, which are different scales, that have different functions, of the contracts, of looking for the way to make the efficiencies … how to standardize the procedures of the contracts, where to take the headquarters … everything was paralyzed by the hurricanes.

At what stage is the process of merging the seven agencies?

-Not finished, no, we need the headquarters … The first agencies should be the smallest, to go little by little adding the others.

When does the complete merger plan to be ready?

-You have to be ready this year, at some point, without fail.

Once you have that complete administrative process, would there be staff movement?

-We can not take someone from another staff and suddenly turn them into policemen. What we can do, and we are already working, is to remove all the police who are doing administrative work and replace them based on the Single Employer.

How many are the policemen who are in administrative areas?

-Almost 900, very many.

Was the problem of absenteeism already controlled?

-That was resolved. What is there is 20 or 30 island level, normal.

How many barracks are still not working?

-It is not so much those that are not working, but those that are working in conditions that are not correct … I anticipate that in the study of needs, are the barracks, which can be eliminated and, say, regionalized. Have a barracks that serves an area where three or four are not necessary because the staff does not justify.

What should be improved?

– I need the headquarters to integrate the first agency. We are working hard.

Do you think that people are satisfied with their performance?

-From what I see on the street, yes.

Why should we continue to pay him a salary of $ 248,500?

-It is the salary that I need to survive … they invested in a person with knowledge, credibility, skills to work with the state, federal and municipal system. That is the reason.

Are the results you have so far worth that investment?

-I work 16, 18 hours … I understand that yes.

I learned one thing in sports – when management reiterates that it supports a leader and that he has total confidence you can count the days that he has left. A few days ago the governor said that Pesquera has his confidence. Start packing your bags, Mr. Arrogant.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered daily five-hour humanitarian pauses in the rebel-held enclave of Eastern Ghouta near the Syrian capital Damascus, the Russian initiative effectively upends the U.N. Security Council resolution passed at the weekend which called for a 30-day nationwide ceasefire, but did not provide for a deadline or a mechanism for implementation. Kareem Shaheen and Andrew Roth report at the Guardian.

A five-hour pause has begun today in Eastern Ghouta, around 400,000 civilians are in the area and have faced over a week of intense bombing by pro-Syrian government forces. The U.K.s deputy ambassador to the U.N., Jonathan Allen, said the Russian announcement does not constitute a full implementation of the 30-day ceasefire passed by the U.N. Security Council resolution at the weekend, Jamie Tarabay report at CNN.

Russian military police and Syrian troops have set up a humanitarian corridor for civilians to leave Eastern Ghouta, according to Russias state Tass news agency, residents of the enclave have expressed fear that they could be harassed and possibly arrested if they enter government-held areas. Sarah El Deeb reports at the AP.

A number of shells hit towns in Eastern Ghouta during the first two hours of the humanitarian pause, according to the U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the Syrian state news agency reported that terrorists had shelled the route of the humanitarian corridor. The BBC reports.

Syrian government war planes struck the enclave despite Russia’s call for a five-hour truce, Reutersreports.

Its high time to stop this hell on earth, the U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres said yesterday, noting that Security Council resolutions are only meaningful if they are effective and that Eastern Ghouta cannot wait. Nick Cumming-Bruce reports at the New York Times.

Familia de celador hallado muerto en Puerto Rico denuncia caos de Ciencias Forenses

How was Sean Collins murdered?

His family demands the answers.

“According to the US media, “dealing with the morgue has been one of the most distressing aspects of the family’s unfathomable experience.” Although the body of Collins was taken to the Institute of Forensic Sciences on Tuesday, February 20, the family was not notified and even on Friday, February 23, they asked for help on television to find the man they considered missing. 
“His family simply drove to the morgue and we found it, then it was the family that reported the police, and not the other way around,” the deceased’s brother-in-law said…”

Guardian family murdered in Puerto Rico denounces forensic science chaos
 

mikenova shared this story .

The relatives of Sean Collins denounced in the media of Staten Island in New York that the system in Puerto Rico does not work and that they had not been able to receive the body of the guard, who was found dead in a car on February 20, to take him to his hometown and give him burial.

The complaint of the relative was reported by the portal Silver.com that cites his brother-in-law, David Drogon clamoring for help to be able to have the body of the guard, who visited the island as part of a vacation after his work in Puerto Rico to restore electric service.

“It is totally unacceptable what is happening to my family and I am really furious,” said Drogon. I have explained that they do not want to incinerate the remains of Collins in Puerto Rico, because they want to bury him with his father in a cemetery in his town. In fact, he said they already have the funeral home ready to complete the arrangements, eleven the body arrives in Staten Island.

According to the US media, “dealing with the morgue has been one of the most distressing aspects of the family’s unfathomable experience.” Although the body of Collins was taken to the Institute of Forensic Sciences on Tuesday, February 20, the family was not notified and even on Friday, February 23, they asked for help on television to find the man they considered missing.
“His family simply drove to the morgue and we found it, then it was the family that reported the police, and not the other way around,” the deceased’s brother-in-law said.

He said his anguish has since gone on forever, despite the family’s repeated requests, Drogon said.

The man denounced that the morgue where Collins’s body was kept for the last week does not have the ability to adequately preserve the bodies for long periods of time.

“It’s not the police,” Dorgon said, adding that the cops have returned Collins’ belongings to the family.

The family recognized Collins’ tattoos, performed the autopsy and performed the toxicology tests, but Forensic Science has not yet identified him scientifically, although dental records have been provided, Drogon said. “They do not need to do anything else, what are they waiting for?” He added, clearly exasperated.

He added that the family has communicated with local politicians in Puerto Rico and that Congressman Dan Donovan has helped. “We have been in repeated contact with senior Puerto Rican officials about what is happening and our intervention has been effective,” said a spokesman for Donovan.

Drogon believes that the family may need help from the highest levels of government, perhaps even President Trump.

He asked people to pressure officials at all levels through social media and other forms of communication from Staten Island to Puerto Rico so that Collins can return home.
The journalist David Begnaud, who has followed closely all the news related to Puerto Rico since the scourge of Hurricane Maria said he knew that the body was finally delivered to the family after six days of its discovery.

Alcalde de Isabela se une a voces que piden la renuncia de Héctor Pesquera
 

mikenova shared this story from Comentarios en: Alcalde de Isabela se une a voces que piden la renuncia de Héctor Pesquera.

San Juan  – The mayor of Isabela, Charlie Delgado Altieri, joined this Tuesday, to the public demand that leaders of different parties have made, so that the secretary of the Department of Public Safety leaves his position.

“Given the increase in crime and the lack of a plan, specific actions are required to address the problem. If Governor Ricardo Rosselló, through the Secretary of Fisheries, can not control the criminal wave, ask him to resign and give him a person to do the work. We can not allow crime to continue wrapping our streets, “said Delgado Altieri in written statements.

– Advertising –

Also, the mayor said that although the municipalities have resources from the Municipal Police, they need the support of the State Police to prevent criminal acts.

“Pesquera has left us alone and few resources have been assigned to the municipalities to work together and in coordination in the fight against crime. The preventive rounds have been reduced significantly, which has led to an increase in robberies and escalations, “he said.

“At a time when the number of murders amounts to 134, and five other cases are in the Institute of Forensic Sciences wait for confirmation, the governor must not only accept the resignation of Hector Pesquera, but assume his responsibility as First Executive and recognize that his anticrime plan failed. Mr. Governor, the mayors of all the political parties expect action on your part and dismiss Pesquera from his position immediately, “said Delgado Altieri.

Body of Staten Island man, 29, reportedly found in Puerto Rico
 

mikenova shared this story from Staten Island Real-Time News.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The body of a 29-year-old Staten Island man was found in Puerto Rico, according to media reports.

Sean Collins, 29, reportedly was found dead inside a Nissan Versa on Feb. 20, according to the Puerto Rican news website ElVocero.com.

Public records indicate that Collins lived in Sunnyside. He was a linesman for Northline Utilities on Staten Island and a member of IBEW Local 3, according to social media posts.

Collins had spent time in Puerto Rico to help restore power after Hurricane Maria, but returned back home in January, according to reports.

He traveled to Puerto Rico for the President’s Day weekend to visit friends and stayed in the Intercontinental Hotel on Isla Verde, according to <a href=”http://ElVocero.com” rel=”nofollow”>ElVocero.com</a>.

On that Monday, Feb. 19, he was booked to return to New York on a United Airlines flight that he never boarded, <a href=”http://ElVocero.com” rel=”nofollow”>ElVocero.com</a> said.

He was reported missing by a friend on Feb. 21, the day after his body was found, according to El Vocero.

While it is not clear how he died, authorities don’t believe foul play was involved, according to a report by NBCNewYork.com.

According to El Vocero, because there are no signs of violence, it may take weeks for authorities to determine the cause of death.

Social media posts indicated that Collins rented the Nissan Versa.

Friends posted on social media that Collins was missing and paid tribute to him after his body was found.

Denuncian “retroceso” con la Reforma de la Policía | Ley y orden

Representantes de dos de las organizaciones sin fines de lucro, que integran el Grupo Comuntario de Trabajo de la Reforma de la Policía (Grupocorpo), compartieron hoy su impresión de que bajo el Departamento de Seguridad Pública ha habido un “retroceso” en el cumplimiento con la política de uso apropiado de la fuerza.

“El señor (Héctor) Pesquera nunca ha sido amigo de la Reforma de la Policía… Ha habido un retroceso”, afirmó María Mari Narváez, autora del informe No se dispara de la baqueta, desarrollado por la organización Espacios Abiertos, integrante de Grupocorpo.

Tanto Mari como Rubén Kondrup, de Amnistía Internacional PR, se refirieron durante la conferencia de prensa a lo ocurrido en la última manifestación de la Milla de Oro convocada por Jornada Se Acabaron Las Promesas, en la que hubo agresiones físicas y hasta se atropelló a un manifestante, que tuvo que ser llevado al hospital.

“En varios vídeos se ve que es la misma policía, la que está instigando… Hay un vídeo de un policía empujando a un manifestante que no estaba haciendo nada”, mencionó Kondrup.

“En esta ocasión, hay un retroceso porque una persona tuvo que ir al hospital. Ahí golpearon. No solamente tiraron pepper spray, que fue uno de los peores elementos de las últimas manifestaciones, que lo hicieron ilegalmente, sin hacer las debidas advertencias. Lo dice el monitor (federal) también. El monitor también establece que ni un solo policía (para el 1 de mayo de 2017) había sido adiestrado en la nueva política de manejo de multitudes”, expresó Mari.

Ambas organizaciones se aliaron para lanzar el proyecto Oficial, tengo derechos, que ya ha ofrecido talleres y adiestramientos a más de 600 personas, y cuyas recomendaciones para guardar los derechos humanos se encuentran en el portal web oficialtengoderechos.org.

El informe No se dispara de la baqueta analiza los datos de la Policía sobre muertes, mutilaciones y daños graves a manos de agentes de la Uniformada para los años 2014 a 2016.

Mari, autora del informe, encontró que 12 personas fallecieron en 2015 en incidentes relacionados al uso de fuerza de la Policía y nueve personas fallecieron en 2016, según los datos de esa agencia.

También, 19 personas resultaron con mutilaciones o daños mayores para 2015 por incidentes relacionados al uso de fuerza de la Policía de Puerto Rico. Mientras, en el año 2016 fueron 11 personas, según el informe.

Aunque Mari observó que la política de uso de fuerza cumple con seis de los ocho criterios desarrollados por Campaign Zero, una organización estadounidense que combate la violencia policíaca, se les ha dificultado su ejecutoria.

“Tenemos una política de uso de fuerza que en papel luce bien, pero todavía hay una gran brecha entre la letra y la acción”, afirmó Mari.

Ricky Martin has enjoyed the success of “Despacito”
 

mikenova shared this story .

Madrid – With a Latin Grammy under his arm for his previous album, “To whoever wants to listen”, Ricky Martin already looks at the summer with “Fever”, theme in which his pop style returns to play with the reggaeton when they still resonate throughout the planet echoes another milestone of the merger, “Despacito” by his compatriot Luis Fonsi .

“I think I have enjoyed more than him with his success, I have not only because he comes from Puerto Rico, but because he is a good man and a true musician, hungry for applause, who has taken our language everywhere,” assures Ask him if he feels like a pioneer of a musical formula under which other musicians have triumphed after his steps.

In that sense, in a talk held in a brief stop in Madrid with his children, can not but congratulated for their meeting in “Fever” with other compatriots of his, the global figures of the Latin urban Wisin & Yandel.

“I can not only get into the genre of pop, where I was born, if I can play a bit with reggaeton, jazz or rock, why not, they are both warriors who are always thinking and they have a very contagious creative march “, underlines who does not rule out or try the” trap “” as long as it is done well “.

It is not the only meeting, since “Fever” comes signed, among its eleven composers (including Martin himself), by the Spanish Beatriz Luengo and the Cuban Yotuel Romero (Orishas), who signed many of the themes included in “Whoever wants to listen “(2015).

“They know me very well, because everything they write is very much I. With them I won the Grammy and I dedicate it to them, because they gave me their art,” says the Puerto Rican, for whom it is not a problem to delegate to others the search for your own voice

Thus, he downplays those who criticize that a single song can be the fruit of so many hands.

“The moment you think you know everything, it’s the moment you lost, I like to rub shoulders with people from different countries and see music in different ways, I’ve never been a purist, what runs for my life it’s fusion “, he emphasizes.

Martin, who will soon return to Las Vegas to extend his musical residence after the success of the first round, has recently combined his musical side with another that had more abandoned: the interpretation.

In the second season of the television series “American Crime Story”, which bears the label of producer Ryan Murphy and recreates the murder of Gianni Versace, he plays the famous couturier’s lover with Edgar Ramírez and Penelope Cruz .

“I’m flying, I see the episodes and I cry again, I get angry, I laugh … I remember one day when we said that something very good we should have done in this life for the three of us to have fallen in that set. responsibility to be next to Penelope, winner of an Oscar, “he proclaims.

At this point, Martin does not rule out insisting on his career as an actor, a route he opened at age 15 that has taken him to the small screen, but also to venues like Broadway.

“The performance was always there, the wave of music pushed me and never released me, but now I’m in a moment of my life where I have to go back to that beginning, to that tingling sensation that I felt when I was 15 years old. experience has taken away nerves and insecurities that came with me to break the glass and reach very intense levels of interpretation, “he says.

That includes the scenes of homosexual sex that he stars in “American Crime Story,” something he downplays.

“I’ve never had problems with the nude, it’s our natural state, it’s beautiful, but you have to do it and take good care of it, what we’ve done in the series may be uncomfortable, but we had to be firm with a story. I undressed in front of the camera and the public congratulated me for it “, he presumes.

There is no date of new projects, as there is no date for his next album, whose creative spit was opened with the previous single, “Vente pa’cá”.

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
 

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

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.

Según el representante, en los primeros 56 días de 2018 se reportaron 130 asesinatos, 591 vehículos hurtados y 121 “carjackings”.

“No se sabe quién manda en la Policía y hay conflicto de quién establece la cadena de mando. No hay una estrategia que redunde en reducir el crimen”, afirmó Cruz.

La medida, en su exposición de motivos, da cuenta de las reservas expresadas por el monitor federal Arnaldo Claudio, quien en un informe reciente criticó la cadena de mando en el DSP y expresó preocupación de que no contribuya a cumplir con la reforma de la Policía.

El departamento, dice el proyecto, “se convirtió en un súper departamento que lejos de acercar la solución de los problemas de seguridad pública, los ha agudizado por su burocracia, que al mismo tiempo, lejos de significar un manejo costo efectivo de los recursos del Estado, ha sido más caro, con una marcada reducción en la calidad de los servicios”.

Rechazan la propuesta

En tanto, el liderato del Partido Nuevo Progresista (PNP) en el Capitolio dejó saber que no eliminarán el DSP. Los presidentes de las comisiones de Seguridad, Henry Neumann en el Senado y Félix Lasalle en la Cámara, dijeron no estar de acuerdo con que se elimine esta sombrilla.

Neumann dijo que esta idea ha tenido “mucho éxito” en otras jurisdicciones y que hay que darle tiempo para que funcione.

“No ha empezado a funcionar. Tuvimos los problemas relacionados con los huracanes, tuvimos las bajas que sufrieron los comisionados que originalmente estaban. No se le ha dado la oportunidad para poder funcionar”, indicó Neumann.

“El problema no es Héctor Pesquera tampoco. Puedes cambiar a Héctor Pesquera y llega otro mañana con los mismos problemas. El problema es que la Policía no tiene las herramientas necesarias para poder defendernos”, manifestó el senador.

Lasalle, por su parte, expresó que “la parte importante no es atacar el departamento, sino ir a ver cómo vamos a trabajar con un plan de seguridad”.

El vicepresidente del Senado, Larry Seilhamer, tampoco favoreció eliminar la agencia. “Me parece que lo que hay es que refinarla. Tenemos que hacerle unos ajustes a esa sombrilla y examinar cómo ha sido el comportamiento y la eficiencia hasta el momento para poder hacer los ajustes”, afirmó.

Contractors Are Leaving Puerto Rico, Where Many Still Lack Power
 

mikenova shared this story .

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.”

Fluor’s crews would not be the first contractors to leave abruptly. After a scandal erupted over the Puerto Rico government’s award of its first power restoration contract, worth $300 million, to a small Montana firm, Whitefish Energy, the government canceled the deal.

Many people involved in power restoration said that officials overseeing the work were disappointed with the Army Corps of Engineers contractors. Fluor in particular was criticized for working sluggishly and using up the money available under its contract without accomplishing as much as expected.

Fluor is a Texas-based construction giant that has done more than $30 billion in government work over the past four decades, much of it for the Defense Department, federal records show.

“I understand that they were slow — super slow,” Mr. González Otero said. “Now we don’t have anyone, slow or at all. We have no one.”

Justo González, the interim executive director of the island’s government-owned utility, the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, also was critical of Fluor’s performance.

“We compared, and saw better work from other companies,” Mr. González said in an interview.

Even so, he said, the corps’s decision to let the Fluor workers leave was worrisome.

“It concerns me,” he said. “It can affect our ability to energize. We wanted them to continue. What do I want? To energize as quickly as possible.”

A spokesman for Fluor denied that there had been any questions about its work.

“To date, we have restored power to 250,000 customers by fixing 7,500 poles, installing 462 miles of wire, more than 20,000 conductors, and repaired 170 transmission lines,” the company said. Under the limits set by the contract on the time and money to be expended, the company said, “we are reaching the end of both, and have been directed by the corps to begin transitioning people and equipment off of the island.”

The corps said that restoring power to some of the hardest-hit areas of Puerto Rico, including Arecibo and Caguas, would take a few more months. The “right number of restoration workers” were “actively engaged” in completing the job, the corps said in a statement.

“We will not rest until we have the lights back on for all of our fellow American citizens in Puerto Rico,” Col. Jason Kirk said in the statement.

Ahsha Tribble, who oversees power efforts for the Federal Emergency Management Agency in Puerto Rico, said it was unfair to single out Fluor for leaving before restoration was complete, because other private companies that came to the island from New York and other states under mutual assistance agreements were also considering scaling back soon.

“At 86 percent restoration, we are starting to shave off people,” Ms. Tribble said. “In any normal course of restoration, you ramp up until you start getting your successes, and then you begin to start ramping down.”

Many of the remaining areas without power are in mountainous regions where it is not possible to squeeze in thousands of workers at once, she said.

Island residents, many of them still struggling to get basic services, were surprised by the corps’s announcement.

“We are so appreciative of everything these people have done — these workers risked their lives coming here, working in dangerous helicopters and all of that,” said Nydia Guzmán, 72, who spent Friday at one of the utility’s customer service offices, along with dozens of other customers who were disputing their bills.

“But they can’t leave now,” Ms. Guzmán said. “There’s too much left to be done.”

Discovery of cocaine in Russian diplomatic luggage leads to numerous arrests

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 .

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.

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.

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.
