M.N.: Keep the “TAINO POLICIA” (that’s how I call them, it is the local Puerto Rican Police + the local faction of the local branch of the FBI + the invisible corrupt and criminal structures that are behind them) under the very close, tight, and constant Federal surveillance and control, non-stop, and 24/7. Investigate them and purge these structures without the end, otherwise their cancer will kill the whole body. The continuous process of importation of the good and experienced police and FBI officers from the mainland is the only solution, there are no other, except the continuous  reeducation and acculturation efforts which might take the decades and the generations.

Germany news: Angela Merkel to stand for re-election as CDU leader | Politics | News

1 Share

The German Chancellor, now in her third term, had been urged to step down from her role in the CDU amid plunging approval ratings.

The 64-year-old engaged her critics yesterday after saying she would run for re-election at the party congress in December.

Alexander Mitsch, a senior figure on the CDU’s conservative wing, said Mrs Merkel should quit for the sake of the party and country.

He said: “It would be better in the interest of the CDU and Germany if it paves the way for the much-needed renewal of personnel.

“Mrs Merkel should draw the consequences of the mistakes made by her, especially in the asylum policy, and the resulting poor poll numbers.

“This would be an opportunity to re-integrate the party’s conservative and pro-business wing.”

But Ralph Brinkhaus, the head of the CDU and Christian Social Union (CSU) in the German parliament, threw his weight behind Mrs Merkel.

He said: “I assume that she will compete, and I would endorse that, because a head of government also needs the backing of the party.”

Mr Brinkhaus replaced Volker Kauder, a long-standing ally of Angela Merkel, in the post earlier this week after a party vote.

The shock poll dealt a further blow to the Chancellor’s waning authority, as she struggles to unite Germany’s coalition.

Social Democratic politician Thomas Oppermann said the move was an “uprising against Merkel”.

Alexander Graf Lambsdorff, from Germany’s Free Democratic Party, said it was “the beginning of the end of the grand coalition”.

Daniel Guenther, the premier of northern state Schleswig Holstein, added: “The vote shows a desire for renewal.

“There was clearly a certain discontent over national politics.”

And a CDU adviser said: “Kauder was the first domino to fall, but there might well be more. This could be just the start.

“I can imagine the entire senior party leadership coming under pressure to resign, and that includes Merkel.”

Christopher Isherwood – Wikipedia

1 Share

In 1925 A. S. T. Fisher reintroduced him to W. H. Auden,[8][9][10] and Isherwood became Auden’s literary mentor and partner in an intermittent, casual liaison. Auden sent his poems to Isherwood for comment and approval. Through Auden, Isherwood met Stephen Spender, with whom he later spent much time in Germany. His first novel, All the Conspirators, appeared in 1928. It was an anti-heroicstory, written in a pastiche of many modernist novelists, about a young man who is defeated by his mother. In 1928–29 Isherwood studied medicine at King’s College London, but gave up his studies after six months to join Auden for a few weeks in Berlin.

Rejecting his upper class background and embracing his attraction to men, he remained in Berlin, the capital of the young Weimar Republic, drawn by its reputation for sexual freedom. There, he “fully indulged his taste for pretty youths. He went to [Berlin in search of boys and found one called Heinz, who became his first great love.”[11] Commenting on John Henry Mackay‘s Der Puppenjunge (The Pansy), Isherwood wrote: “It gives a picture of the Berlin sexual underworld early in this century which I know, from my own experience, to be authentic.”[12]

In 1931 he met Jean Ross, the inspiration for his fictional character Sally Bowles. He also met Gerald Hamilton, the inspiration for the fictional Mr Norris. In September 1931 the poet William Plomerintroduced him to E. M. Forster. They became close and Forster served as his mentor. Isherwood’s second novel, The Memorial (1932), was another story of conflict between mother and son, based closely on his own family history. During one of his return trips to London he worked with the director Berthold Viertel on the film Little Friend, an experience that became the basis of his novel Prater Violet(1945). He worked as a private tutor in Berlin and elsewhere while writing the novel Mr Norris Changes Trains (1935) and a short novel called Goodbye to Berlin (1939), often published together in a collection called The Berlin Stories. These works provided the inspiration for the play I Am a Camera(1951), the 1955 film I am a Camera (both starring Julie Harris), Yes/Buggles’ song “Into the Lens/I am a Camera” (1980), the Broadway musical Cabaret (1966) and the film (1972) of the same name. In 1932 he met and fell in love with a young German man named Heinz Neddermeyer.[13]

After leaving Berlin in 1933, he and Heinz moved around Europe, and lived in CopenhagenSintra and elsewhere. Heinz was arrested as a draft-evader in 1937 following his brief return to Nazi Germanyafter he was ejected from Luxembourg as an “undesirable alien”. Convicted of “reciprocal onanism“,[14] he was sentenced to six months in prison, a year of state labour and two years of compulsory military service.[15] Isherwood collaborated on three plays with Auden

Goodbye to Berlin is a 1939 novel by Christopher Isherwood set in Weimar Germany. It is often published together with Mr Norris Changes Trains in a collection called The Berlin Stories.

Background[edit]

The novel, a semiautobiographical account of Isherwood’s time in 1930s Berlin, describes pre-Nazi Germany and the people he met. It is episodic, dealing with a large cast over a period of several years from late 1930 to early 1933. It is written as a connected series of six short stories and novellas. These are: “A Berlin Diary (Autumn 1930)”, “Sally Bowles”, “On Ruegen Island (Summer 1931)”, “The Nowaks”, “The Landauers” and “A Berlin Diary (Winter 1932-3)”.

Moving to Germany to work on his novel, Isherwood soon becomes involved with a diverse array of German citizens: the caring landlady, Frl. Schroeder; the “divinely decadent” Sally Bowles, a young Englishwoman who sings in the local cabaret and her coterie of admirers; Natalia Landauer, the rich, teenage Jewish heiress of a prosperous family business; Peter and Otto, a gay couple struggling to accept their relationship and sexuality in light of the rise of the Nazis.

The book, first published in 1939, highlights the groups of people who would be most at risk from Nazi intimidation. It was described by contemporary writer George Orwell as “brilliant sketches of a society in decay”. In his autobiography Without Stopping, the author and composer Paul Bowles suggests that Isherwood, whom he met in Berlin, may have borrowed his surname for the character Sally Bowles. Isherwood confirms this in his 1976 memoir Christopher and His Kind, writing, “[I] liked the sound of it and also the looks of its owner.”[1]

Cabaret (1972 film) – Wikipedia

1 Share

Cabaret is a 1972 American musical drama film directed by Bob Fosse and starring Liza MinnelliMichael York, and Joel Grey.[3]

Situated in Berlin during the Weimar Republic in 1931, under the presence of the growing Nazi Party, the film is loosely based on the 1966 Broadway musical Cabaret by Kander and Ebb, which was adapted from the novel The Berlin Stories / Goodbye to Berlin (1939) by Christopher Isherwood and the 1951 play I Am a Camera adapted from the same book. Only a few numbers from the stage score were used for the film; Kander and Ebb wrote new ones to replace those that were discarded. In the traditional manner of musical theater, called an “integrated musical”, every significant character in the stage version sings to express his or her own emotion and to advance the plot. In the film version, the musical numbers are entirely diegetic, taking place inside the club, with one exception, “Tomorrow Belongs to Me”, the only song sung neither by Grey’s character of the Kit Kat Klub’s Master of Ceremonies nor by Minnelli’s character of Sally Bowles. In the sexually charged “Two Ladies”, about a ménage à trois, the Master of Ceremonies is joined by two of the Kit Kat girls.

After the box office failure of his film version of Sweet Charity in 1969, Bob Fosse bounced back with Cabaret in 1972, a year that would make him the most honored director in the movie business. The film also brought Liza Minnelli, the daughter of Judy Garland and Vincente Minnelli, her own first chance to sing on screen, and she won the Academy Award for Best Actress. With Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor (Joel Grey), Best CinematographyBest Art DirectionBest SoundBest Original Song Score and Adaptation, and Best Film Editing, it holds the record for most Oscars earned by a film not honored for Best Picture. It is listed as number 367 on Empire’s 500 greatest films of all time.[4]

Cabaret opened to glowing reviews and strong box office, eventually taking in more than $20 million. In addition to its eight Oscars, it won Best Picture citations from the National Board of Review and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and took Best Supporting Actor honors for Grey from the National Board of Review, the Hollywood Foreign Press, and the National Society of Film Critics.

“Salis Bury! No Salir! No Exit!”

Also: “Salus (Health) Bury”!

It looks like The Demiurge was trying to establish the communications with “Yours Truly” for some time, already; I found to some surprise. 

Salis Bury! Phonetically: Solis bury: Bury your sun! 

That’s what he says: Bury your sun, I have a lot of “Novichok” for all of you, including your “Salis Transportation” which replaced the Bout Airlines. (Khe-Khe…) Choke, Noviy (Nova)! Noviy, choke! Novyi choke for you. 

You all will be zi Zalizbury Ztakez. 

Ziz iz zi new movie from Zi Demiurge, Canaris 5 or 6. He likez my poetry, z-z-z… 

Viktor Bout and the Far West Group (just like the more extended circle of the Andropov-Tsvigun’s “Jungers”, read all that pseudo-romantic greedy KGB brood) were probably the clients, fronts, and covers for the Abwehr The Demiurge which confirms the hypothesis of their masterminding of the 9/11.

The Demiurge is the owner of the Black Cat  Cabaret (Rodolphe Salis), and they have a lot of black cats in the store, to run to the left, right, and all the other possible directions and to to threaten and to cause all sorts of “bad luck” and other calamities. Here they run the Salis’ black cat between Great Britain and Russia.

This reality show is performed in the genre of cabaret, with The Demiurge playing the role of the invisible, omnipotent, omniscient, obsessive-compulsive, meticulous, artistic but talantless, pedantic Master of Ceremonies. 

I want to see you naked, Demiurge, and in your prison cell, unless you write the real good memoirs for us, you old German geisha.

NATO confirms Volga-Dnepr notice to quit SALIS ǀ Air Cargo News

1 Share

NATO has confirmed the withdrawal of a Volga-Dnepr subsidiary from its contract for Strategic Air Lift International Solution (SALIS), which provides An-124 freighter uplift for the western military alliance.

A spokesperson for the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) told Air Cargo News: “Since 2006 the NSPA has contracted for airlift to assist an international consortium of nations in meeting their requirements for outsize cargo airlift.

“These services have been operating for more than a decade and currently two separate contracts are in force to support the Support Partnership nations under what is known as the Strategic Air Lift International Solution or SALIS.

“The SALIS is an international consortium which includes 10 nations: Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Slovakia, and Slovenia.”

The NSPA spokesperson continued: “The current contracts were signed on 1 January 2017 – one with Antonov SALIS GmbH and a second one with Ruslan SALIS GmbH. These contracts are in force until the end of 2018.

“NSPA has been informed by Ruslan SALIS that they will not continue their service beyond the terms of their current contract which will remain in force until the end of 2018.”

“NSPA is currently working with the SALIS nations to explore options to meet their future airlift requirement from January 2019 onward.”

NSPA is unable to provide additional information at this time.

Two An124-100 aircraft, one each from the two freighter airlines, have been stationed permanently at Germany’s Leipzig/Halle airport since March 2006 as part of the SALIS Project.

More aircraft are also made available at short notice, when required, to provide airlift for EU and NATO countries.

Russia’s Volga-Dnepr Group said in a statement: “In line with our corporate strategy, Volga-Dnepr Group is focused on the growth of its business in the civil commercial sector and continuing to extend the scope of its niche products.

“We have been gradually withdrawing from the military logistics transportation market in due compliance with our previous commitments.

“The Group will not participate in the tender process initiated by NATO in its existing configuration, but we are open to continued cooperation with all organizations engaged in the transportation of humanitarian cargoes, and for future participation in disaster and emergency recovery programs.”

Topic: Strategic Airlift Interim Solution (SALIS)

1 Share

During their annual spring meeting in Brussels in June 2003, NATO Ministers of Defence signed letters of intent on strategic air- and sealift. Eleven nations signed the letter of intent on airlift: Canada, the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Portugal and Turkey. At the June 2004 Istanbul Summit, Defence Ministers of 15 countries signed a memorandum of understanding to achieve an operational airlift capacity for outsize cargo by 2005, using up to six Antonov An-124-100 transport aircraft. In addition, the Defence Ministers of Bulgaria and Romania signed a letter of intent to join the consortium.

In January 2006, the 15 countries signed a contract with Ruslan SALIS GmbH, a subsidiary of the Russian company Volga Dnepr, based in Leipzig.

In March 2006, the 15 original signatories were joined by Sweden at a special ceremony in Leipzig to mark the entry into force of the multinational contract. The contract’s initial duration was for three years but this has now been extended until the end of 2014. Finland and Poland have also now joined the SALIS programme. The SALIS contract was re-competed in 2012 and Ruslan SALIS GmbH was rewarded a new two-year contract (2013/2014) with options to extend until December 2017.

Volga-Dnepr and Ukraine’s ADB provide the SALIS aircraft and also provide AN-124-100 aircraft to support the Afghanistan mission, with weekly sorties from Europe to Afghanistan and back, under contractual arrangements with NATO Support Agency (NSPA).

The capabilities of SALIS will play a big role in on-going Afghanistan re-deployment.

Third Russian Possibly Involved in Salisbury Poisoning

1 Share

British investigators now say a third Russian military intelligence officer was involved in the poisoning in March this year of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in the southern English cathedral town of Salisbury.

Officials say the officer, who they suspect of carrying out reconnaissance for the nerve agent attack, has been identified by the British security services. At this stage, they say, they are not releasing his name – neither the alias he might have used nor his real identity.

The disclosure comes as Kremlin officials downplayed the unmasking earlier this week of one of the suspects in the attack as a decorated colonel in the GRU, the Russian military intelligence service.

Col. Anatoliy Chepiga, a GRU veteran who is believed to have served in an elite special forces unit in Afghanistan as well as in Chechnya and Ukraine, received Russia’s top military honor, Hero of the Russian Federation, in 2014. It may have been bestowed on him personally by Russian President Vladimir Putin, say security analysts.

Chepiga was seen laughing on CCTV footage released earlier this year by the British authorities as he and a colleague, who used the alias Alexander Petrov, sauntered along a Salisbury street March 4 soon after the poisoning of Skripal, a former Russian agent who defected to Britain.

The two men have claimed they are sport nutritionists and in an interview, ridiculed by the British media and government, with the Kremlin-directed RT network, insisted they had gone to Salisbury, twice, to see the cathedral’s spire and ancient clock. Their first day trip was a failure because of slush and snow, they said, although according to weather data there was no snow in the cathedral town on March 3.

The investigative journalism consortium Bellingcat, along with the news-site The Insider, say they have identified the decorated veteran, who used the alias Ruslan Boshirov, by trawling through open-source records of the graduates of Russian military academies and then matching his photograph. Leaked data of Chepiga’s real passport provided final proof.

‘Fake news’

The Russian Foreign Ministry says the Bellingcat identification is “fake news.”

And Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Thursday: “Like you, we are just learning of this investigation in the media released that talks about certain people resembling certain other people.” Other Kremlin officials say many people resemble each other.

Chepiga’s apparent identification as one of the likely culprits of the assassination attempt using the rare toxin Novichok leaves in tatters the Kremlin claim that it had no involvement in the attack, say British officials. His seniority in the GRU, they argue, suggests the attack was sanctioned from the top of the Kremlin.
Bellingcat says aside from its own open-source probe, “multiple sources familiar with the person and/or the investigation have confirmed the suspect’s identity.” British officials say they have no dispute with the identification. But they are not officially confirming it and have not said in detail why, arguing they are unable to for security reasons.

Locals in Chepiga’s home village, Berezovka, 640 kilometers east of Moscow in the Amur region, interviewed by the Russian newspaper Kommersant, confirm the identification and say they knew it was him even before the Bellingcat investigation. They say they recognized him from the CCTV footage British authorities released. Kommersant says the locals spoke on the condition of anonymity, fearing retribution.

“Yeah, that’s Tolya,” one woman told the newspaper, using Chepiga’s nickname. She says he was a disciplined youth. “He didn’t drink, didn’t smoke, and never got involved with any bad crowd,” she said.

Security analysts say it is possible that Chepiga and Skripal, a former GRU officer, knew each other. If so, it would add a personal element to the nerve agent attack. Skripal also served in Afghanistan, although not in a special forces unit but with Soviet Airborne Troops and many years earlier.

Skripal and his daughter survived the March nerve-agent attack, but a local woman not connected to the original attack died in July after being exposed to the same toxin, which was contained in a discarded perfume bottle dumped in a trash bin.

Skripal was a double agent for British intelligence in the 1990s. In December 2004, he was arrested by Russian authorities, tried, convicted of high treason and sentenced to 13 years in prison. He was included in a 2010 spy swap and settled in Salisbury.

Britain, the United States and most European Union countries responded to the Salisbury attack with expulsions of Russian diplomats and financial sanctions on Russia. The Kremlin denies any involvement in the attack and has maintained variously that the poisoning never happened, that it was carried out by Britain in order to blame Russia or that unknown third parties were responsible.

Third Salisbury attack suspect believed to have been identified by police

1 Share

A third Russian accomplice alleged to have helped plan the Salisbury nerve agent attack is believed to have been identified by police.

The man, from Russia’s military intelligence service the GRU, is reported to have visited Salisbury ahead of the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, according to The Daily Telegraph.

The paper said the suspect was likely to have fed back details including the layout of the cul-de-sac where Mr Skripal lived and which door he used to enter and leave.

The Press Association has confirmed that the investigation is looking at several suspects, with a senior Government source stating that there are “at least two”. An exact number has not been confirmed but the source said there were “multiple suspects” being investigated.

A Scotland Yard spokeswoman said: “We will not be discussing any further details in what remains a live investigation.”

UK authorities believe two Russians, using the aliases Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, smeared the highly toxic Novichok chemical on a door handle at the Wiltshire home of former GRU officer Mr Skripal on March 4.

The attack left Mr Skripal and his daughter critically ill, and Dawn Sturgess, 44, who was later exposed to the same nerve agent, died in July.

On Wednesday, the investigative group Bellingcat identified one of the suspects as Colonel Anatoliy Chepiga – a highly decorated GRU officer.

Bellingcat said it had identified Chepiga, who travelled to the UK with a passport issued in the assumed name of Ruslan Boshirov, by trawling through online records from Russian military academies.

Chepiga’s former commanding officer Alexander Borzhko confirmed that Chepiga fought in Chechnya and received the Hero of Russia medal.

But President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said he could find no information about such a person receiving the award.

The Government has declined to comment officially on the report, although it has previously said the two suspects wanted for the attack on the Skripals were GRU officers.

Bellingcat is reportedly close to identifying the second suspect.

The Kremlin says it expects Britain to say what it knows about the identity of the two suspects so that Russian officials can launch an investigation.

Mr Peskov said that the allegations made by the British-based investigative group cannot serve as a basis for such an inquiry.

“We can’t have media as our vis-a-vis in such a sensitive case,” he said.

“Such materials should only come from competent sources. From the very start, Russia has offered to conduct a joint investigation, but faced British refusals.”

Meanwhile, the Government dismissed allegations that Russian security services infiltrated the British Embassy in Moscow to obtain visas for the suspected poisoners.

A Home Office spokeswoman said: “We reject these claims entirely.

“Applications of this type would be decided by a visa officer in the UK and not in the British Embassy in Moscow.”

On 4 March 2018, Sergei Skripal, a former Russian military officer and double agent for the UK’s intelligence services, and his daughter Yulia Skripal were poisoned in Salisbury, England, with a Novichok nerve agent, according to official UK sources[3][4] and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).[5] After three weeks in a critical condition, Yulia regained consciousness and was able to speak. She was discharged on 9 April 2018.[6][7] Sergei was also in a critical condition until he regained consciousness one month after the attack. He was discharged from hospital on 18 May 2018.[8][9]

Third suspect in Salisbury Novichok attack ‘identified by security services’

1 Share

A third suspect has been identified in the Novichok poisonings of former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury, according to reports.

Investigators believe another Russian military intelligence officer visited the city on a reconnaissance mission prior to the attack in March, the Telegraph reported.

The spotter would have travelled alone to assess the location before Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov brought toxic nerve agent Novichok into the UK in a perfume bottle.

They are suspected of poisoning Russian defector Skripal and his daughter Yulia by smearing Novichok on his front door before heading back to Moscow.

The Skripals both survived, but local woman Dawn Sturgess died after her partner Charlie Rowley found the perfume bottle used to dispense the poison.

It is believed that security chiefs have identified the new suspect who came to Salisbury to scope out the intended target.

Skripal suspect ‘true identity’ revealed as decorated Russian colonel

Philip Ingram, a former intelligence and security officer, told The Telegraph: “There was almost certainly intelligence on the ground before the attack was carried out, it is what is called a pattern of life study.

“They wouldn’t have turned up at the house and put it on the door handle on a whim.”

It follows reports that security services are investigating four other suspects believed to be linked to the attack – and analysis from a former Russian spy who said kill teams would tend to operate in teams of six.

Ex-spy Boris Karpichkov, 59, told the Mirror that eavesdroppers from Russian spy agency the FSB would have monitored Yulia Skripal’s mobile, email, internet and Skype before she travelled to the UK to meet her father.

The team would have formed a  “Special Operations Group”, or SOG, and cloned the passports of prisoners in other EU states to travel without visas – and some members may still be laying low following the attack.

Suspect Ruslan Boshirov has recently been identified by the investigative journalism bureau Bellingcat as a decorated GRU Colonel, Anatoliy Chepiga – despite repeated claims from Kremlin that his picture “means nothing to us”.

Chepiga, 39, served in wars in Chechnya and Ukraine. He was made a Hero of the Russian Federation by decree of President Vladimir Putin in 2014.

Prime Minister Theresa May damned Russia for the attack at an address to the UN Security Council on Tuesday.

She said: “We have taken appropriate action, with our allies, and we will continue to take the necessary steps to ensure our collective security.

“Russia has only sought to obfuscate through desperate fabrication.”

Moscow continues to deny claims of involvement, as officials called out Mrs May for refusing to present her evidence to them.

The country’s Ambassador to London, Alexander Yakovenko, tweeted yesterday, quoting Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov: “London arrogantly demands that we take responsibility for the crime just because they have some “evidence” no one has ever seen and they would not present it to the public. Frankly speaking, this is just childish.

“London violates at least three or four treaties and refuses to answer any questions. As for me, it is a clear sign of guilty conscience.”

The Russian embassy said in a statement: “The UK is refusing to provide the Russian investigation with any information or evidence gathered by British Police when working on the Salisbury incident.

“British authorities (earlier) announced that they did not intend to pursue extradition of the “suspects” and made it clear that they were not interested in submitting their own requests for legal assistance, which could be provided by means of interrogation of certain persons, provision of access to documents, etc.”

A Home Office spokeswoman said: “We set out our position clearly this month. The Police and CPS have identified two men as the prime suspects in the attack in Salisbury. We have repeatedly asked Russia to account for what happened in Salisbury in March, and they have replied with obfuscation and lies.

“We want these men to face justice in the UK and have taken steps to ensure that if they ever leave Russia in the future they can be arrested, detained and brought to the UK.”

Russia ‘influenced UK embassy into giving Skripal assassins visas’

1 Share

Russian secret services were today accused of influencing staff inside the British embassy to secure visas for the two men they sent to kill Sergei Skripal with novichok.

Investigators say they have evidence the Kremlin ‘manipulated people’ working for the UK’s consulate in Moscow to ensure their assassins were handed UK business visas for their Salisbury murder mission.

Roman Dobrokhotov, one of those working for Bellingcat, said today that even basic searches show the men masquerading as sport nutritionists have ‘no business history’ in Russia.

He said: ‘Our theory is that Russian security services obtained some access to the British embassy.

‘It’s not just manipulation in that they changed their documents somewhere, it is direct influence that Russian security services had on those people who were participating in this scheme of making visas.’

Chepiga’s life and official documents are marked ‘top secret’ but have been leaked to journalists

Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov entered Britain unchallenged in March carrying enough novichok to kill 4,000 people in a perfume bottle before fleeing the country 55 hours later having smeared it on Skripal’s front door.

Last night suspect Boshirov was outed as Anatoly Chepiga, a colonel in Putin’s feared special forces army who the President personally made a ‘Hero of Russia’ for missions in Chechnya and Ukraine.

The Kremlin said today it was looking into the reports. ‘Many people look alike, but I cannot tell you who this citizen who was pointed out in this investigation is,’ spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

Residents of Chepiga’s home town in Russia’s far east have since told Russian media they suspected he worked for the secret services because not even his family were told where he was posted.

Petrov is believed to be a GRU Army captain travelling under his first name but on an alias surname and passport handed to him by Kremlin spymasters two years ago.

Mr Dobrokhotov said of Chepiga: ‘He went to Britain with a business visa and that is very difficult to make.

‘You have to have a lot of papers proving that you really have business and he didn’t have any business.

‘Our theory is that Russian security services obtained some access to the British embassy and the next part of our investigation will be directed at this topic; how Russian security services managed to manipulate the British embassy to make their agents get to British ground.’

A Home Office spokesman said: ‘We reject these claims entirely. Applications of this type would be decided by a visa officer in the UK and not in the British Embassy in Moscow.’

President Putin (pictured today meeting zerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev) denied the would-be assassins were working for the Russian government

Experts believe Colonel Chepiga may have known Skripal and personally wanted to kill him because of the GRU’s entrenched hatred of traitors.  

Moscow today tried to smear the compelling evidence and said top secret documents and photographs unmasking the men were ‘pure nonsense’. 

The Russian Embassy in London also suggested that British-based Bellingcat, whose investigators found the men by examining military records, leaked resident databases and passport files, is actually sponsored by MI6.

Putin gave 39-year-old Chepiga, who had served in Chechnya and Ukraine with the Spetsnaz batallion, Russia‘s highest bravery honour in 2014 – under his real name – suggesting that the President may know him personally.

Timeline: The rise of Putin’s ‘Hero of Russia’ who fluffed Salisbury murder mission

May 5, 1979: Anatoliy Vladimirovich Chepiga is born Nikolaevka close to Russia’s border with China, 5,000 miles from Moscow.

1997: 18-year-old is signed up to join Russia’s Army in its far-eastern headquarters and graduates with honours four years later.

2001:  Chepiga joins the Spetsnatz Brigade – Russia’s feared secret service Army often compared to the SAS three years before Sergei Skripal’s arrest for treason.

2001-2008: He spends three long periods fighting in Chechnya and handed 20 medals

2009: Chepiga’s transition to GRU spy begins when he is handed the alias Ruslan Boshirov and the documents to back it up.

2014: Putin makes Chepiga a ‘Hero of Russia’ – the country’s highest award – for an unnamed mission referred to in records as ‘peacekeeping’

2016: Chepiga travels abroad for the first time as Boshirov, under the guise as a businessman with Salisbury partner Petrov and the pair criss-cross Europe.

2018: The men turn up on Salisbury to kill Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia by smearing Novichok on his front door. But they bungle the operation and flee back to Russia.

But foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova today branded the revelations a ‘series of fibs’ and state-sponsored press including Pravda have claimed the document leak is part of a western conspiracy cooked up by ‘traitors’.

Ms Zakharova said today that Britain has ‘no evidence and that is why they continue the information campaign the goal of which is distract attention from the key question: what did really happen in Salisbury?’.

But yesterday Defence Secretary tweeted a link to the Bellingcat research and said it showed the ‘true identity of one of the Salisbury suspects’ – only to delete it seconds later.

Moscow today pointed this out as proof Britain is not sure – and retired FSB major-general Alexander Mikhailov – a former spokesman for the FSB secret service – said: ‘It is pure nonsense. How could secret documents happen to be publicly accessible?

He said: ‘ I can draw a dozen such pictures with Theresa May photograph.

‘And, seriously, these days the British media with the help from traitors will blow lots of smoke’.

Meanwhile, pro-Kremlin newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda (KP) pointed to alleged mistakes in the Bellingcat claims.

Citing a serving but anonymous Russian military source, the newspaper said the photograph of Chepiga ‘really looks like’ a picture of the young Boshirov.

But researchers claim the ‘first mistake’ is in claiming that Chepiga graduated from military college in the Russian Far East are four years.

‘It just can’t be true, the course was years long at that time,, and he had to graduate in 2002.

‘And it is strange why he went to study at 18 – what was he up to for a full year, when he finished his school at 17?’

Mystery of Defence Secretary’s deleted tweet: Gavin Williamson hails revelation of Salisbury suspect’s ‘true identity’… then hastily removes post

  • Copy link to paste in your message

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson last night confirmed that the Salisbury assassin was a Russian colonel – only to delete his tweet seconds later.

Mr Williamson has not commented on. his confirmation

He briefly confirmed the story on social media and wrote: ‘The true identity of one of the Salisbury suspects has been revealed to be a Russian Colonel. I want to thank all the people who are working so tirelessly on this case.’

But withing a minute it was gone.

The Ministry of Defence said Mr Williamson’s social media profile was personal and it did not know why the tweet was deleted.

Scotland Yard declined to comment.

‘But this is not true. This army unit at that time was based in Ussuriysk – 670 km away from Khabarovsk’, he said.

He was also reported to have attended the Military-Diplomatic Academy of Defence Ministry known in the secret services as the ‘music academy’.

Here, it is claimed, he got his second identity as Boshirov.

‘Next time Chepiga’s name comes out in December 2014 when he got his Hero of Russia award for performing some peacekeeping mission,’ said KP.

‘According to the researchers, the 14th brigade – where Chepiga was still listed for some reason – was spotted near Ukrainian border at the end of 2014.’

The Kremlin was branded shameful last night for claiming Chepiga and his unknown accomplice, who used the alias Alexander Petrov, were holidaymakers.

Boris Johnson tweeted: ‘Utterly predictable news that GRU is behind Skripal atrocity.’

The former foreign secretary added: ‘What have you got to say, Putin?’

The two Russian agents were charged over the poisonings by the Crown Prosecution Service earlier this month.

But they later appeared on Russian TV to insist they were visiting Salisbury for its cathedral.

As the bungled attack that left one dead and three seriously ill took another twist: It emerged that Chepiga fought for a feared Spetsnaz unit for 17 years and worked undercover for at least nine.

Salisbury assassin is colonel in Putin’s brutal special forces army the Spetsnaz Brigade

  • Copy link to paste in your message

Spetsnaz have a terrifying reputation, built in recent years while conducting seek-and-destroy missions.

In modern times many have become jihadi hunters tracing and murdering extremists who committed atrocities against Russian troops in Syria and Chechnya (pictured).

There were reports Spetsnaz were behind the shooting down of flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine because a GRU officer was linked to the ‘procurement and transport’ of the weapons used.

Their elite soldiers are trained fight on ground, in the air and even under water.

The feared batallions is based in a headquarters nicknamed The Aquarium on an airbase near Moscow and is very large, deploying six times as many agents in foreign countries as the SVR. These are typically embedded in Russian embassies as military attaches and work on recruiting foreign double agents as well as monitoring military installations and new weapons systems.

In 1997 it was estimated to have 25,000 Spetsnaz soldiers under its command. Their legend has trickled down through the agency, with many desk-bound agents claiming to have a special-forces background even if they do not.

Many agents do have a military background, though, such as Sergei Skripal, who was recruited after serving in the Soviet army and ended up passing secrets to MI6.

There is also a large signals intelligence branch (like our GCHQ) with about 130 satellites orbiting the Earth and a corresponding branch that analyses the resulting visual images.

There are also specialist sub-departments for sophisticated cyber warfare, which recruit from Russia’s top universities.

Sources said the soldier’s high rank – the same as his intended victim, Colonel Sergei Skripal – suggested the attack was sanctioned at the highest level.

Did Salisbury hitman have a personal vendetta against Skripal? Would-be assassin ‘may have poisoned ex-spy for being disloyal to the GRU’

Experts believe Colonel Chepiga may have known Skripal and personally wanted to kill him because of the GRU’s entrenched hatred of traitors.

Both men were highly decorated veterans of Russia’s wars and followed similar paths to the higher echelons of Russia’s military secret services.

The GRU was betrayed by Mr Skripal before he was jailed and sent to the UK in a spy swap. He and his daughter were poisoned in March in Salisbury.

GRU recruits are shown videos of traitors being burned alive as part of their training to instill an entrenched hatred of them.

It is possible that Chepiga was handpicked for the job – or even volunteered – to ensure Skripal received the ‘ultimate punishment’.

Chepiga was made an elite special forces soldier in 2001 – three years before Skripal’s arrest for treason – so it is possible the men may have men.

Senior politicians queued up to accuse the Russians of being ‘seriously dishonest’ and lying about their complicity.

The identity of Chepiga was uncovered by investigative organisation Bellingcat, best known for its insight into the fighting in Ukraine.

It found that Chepiga has won more than 20 awards and a Hero of the Russian Federation medal during his illustrious military career.

Born in the isolated village of Nikolayevka, on the Russian-Chinese border in 1979, he is married with a teenage son.

In 2001 he graduated from the Far-Eastern Military Command Academy before being deployed to Chechnya three times.

Its website states: ‘Anatoly Vladimirovich Chepiga was awarded the honorary title of Hero of the Russian Federation by order of the president of the Russian Federation.’

His name appears under a gold star honour list on a monument to academy alumni at a base near the Chinese border.

The medals are normally awarded by the president personally, and are given only to a handful of people each year.

Unlike most recipients there is little public information about Chepiga’s life and official documents are marked ‘top secret’.

The secretive nature of the award, combined with its timing in 2014, suggests it was for actions in Ukraine. His Spetsnaz unit was pictured on the eastern Ukraine border.

Investigators also found documents that trace Chepiga’s movements around Russia and Europe.

He pops up at a remote military unit and in Moscow where he is likely to have studied at the Military Diplomatic Academy, or ‘GRU Conservatory’.

The GRU was betrayed by Mr Skripal before he was jailed and sent to the UK in a spy swap. He and his daughter were poisoned in March in Salisbury.

Chepiga and Petrov are also accused of murdering Dawn Sturgess, who was inadvertently poisoned when she discovered a perfume bottle filled with the deadly novichok nerve agent used on the Skripals.

Tom Tugendhat, who chairs the Commons foreign affairs committee, said: ‘It is confirmation of what we have known for a long time – that Russia is serially dishonest in its foreign affairs and has again lied about its complicity.

‘These guys are amateurs. Their cover couldn’t even survive investigation by newspapers.’

The dark star of Russia’s elite special forces school: Colonel who signed up at 18, was honoured at gaudy memorial to military and then sent to kill Skripal

The highly-decorated spy blamed for the Salisbury poisonings was a veteran of Russia’s elite special forces and had trained at one of the country’s top military academies, it emerged last night.

The man behind the alias of Boshirov was unmasked by the investigative website as Colonel Chepiga – a GRU intelligence officer bestowed with Russia’s highest state award.

His military career began at the age of 18 when he enrolled in a top military school just 25 miles from his tiny home village of Nikolaevka, near the Russia-China border.

Col Chepiga studied at the Far Eastern Military Command Academy in Blagoveschensk, an elite training ground for ‘Spetsnaz’ special forces officers.

His name features on a memorial wall at the school under the Gold Star honour list. After graduating from the school with honours in 2001, he was assigned to Russia’s 14th Spetsnaz Brigade, based in the far-eastern city of Khabarovsk.

Spetsnaz units are responsible for highly-secretive missions and are equivalent to the British SAS.

Under the command of the GRU, Russia’s military intelligence agency, his brigade played a vital role in the second Chechen war and was also spotted near the Ukrainian border in late 2014.

The information was revealed by investigative website Bellingcat, which had conducted a painstaking investigation into his background.

It said that his unit had deployed three times to Chechnya, where Russia was carrying out what it called a ‘counter-terrorist operation’.

The website of a state-run military volunteer organisation claims that Col Chepiga received more than 20 military awards and decorations in the course of his service.

And his former military school proudly boasts on its website that he was bestowed his homeland’s highest honour, Hero of the Russian Federation, in 2014. The award is often presented by Vladimir Putin himself.

While the achievements of his fellow award-winners are detailed extensively, Col Chepiga’s simply says it was awarded ‘by decree from the Russian president’.

Bellingcat speculated that he could have been given the award for operations in Eastern Ukraine – where Russia’s military was secretly operating in 2014.

Senior Russian military officials have since said that so-called ‘little green men’ – soldiers wearing uniforms with no insignia – were in fact members of Russia’s Spetsnaz deployed secretly to Ukraine.

The Bellingcat website also found an undated photograph of graduates from the Far Eastern Military Command Academy on assignment in Chechnya.

It pointed out that the man on the far right looks strikingly similar to the man named as Boshirov by the Metropolitan Police – although it said it could not prove conclusively it was the same person.

They came across the photograph after sources said the school was a likely place for a Russian military officer with a specialism in Western European operations to have trained.

After further digging, they came across the mysterious Colonel Anatoliy Chepiga. Address databases link him to the Military Unit 20662 – code for the 14th Spetsnaz Brigade.

The logo of the brigade is a black bat with a yellow parachute behind it. It was formed in the 1960s and has been under the command of the GRU for much of its history.

According to Yuri Shvets, a former KGB agent, GRU officers were referred to as ‘boots’ – tough but unsophisticated.

Once a member of the GRU, it is believed to be exceptionally difficult to leave. And those who do so to join foreign agencies are punished savagely.

Viktor Suvorov, a GRU officer who defected to Britain in 1978, said new recruits were shown a video of a traitor from the agency being burned alive in a furnace as a warning.

The GRU has become adept as using so-called ‘non-linear warfare’, which uses a combination of covert special forces operations, spying, cyber attacks and internet trolls to destabilise enemy nations.

It started as an intelligence-gathering agency for Trotsky’s Bolshevik Red Army, and Lenin insisted it remain separate from the other intelligence organisations.

Today it still sits apart from the SVR, the external spying service, and the domestic FSB (the equivalents of Britain’s MI6 and MI5), which were created when the notorious KGB was split in 1991.

How will the West react to proof Putin lied?

Commentary by Owen Matthews

THIS sensational revelation – the seniority of the would-be assassin and the official state support for the mission – shows that the Skripal hit must have been ordered at the very highest levels of the Russian state.

The evidence that Vladimir Putin personally ordered the attack grows stronger every day.

Indeed, by presiding over one of the most farcically inept cover-ups in memory – when the two Russians caught on CCTV here claimed to have been tourists visiting Salisbury cathedral – Putin has condemned himself out of his own mouth.

Days after British police released dozens of security camera images of the pair on their way from Moscow to Salisbury, Putin appeared on Russian television to defend them as ‘innocent Russian citizens about whom we know nothing’. His fingerprints were all over the operation.

The following afternoon, ‘Petrov’ and ‘Boshirov’ themselves appeared to air a cock-and-bull story about being turned back from their mission to see Salisbury by slush – two days in a row.

Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed the two suspects were just civilians and not members of the GRU

Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed the two suspects were just civilians and not members of the GRU

Before the denials by Putin and by the suspects themselves, it might have been possible to argue plausibly that the botched assassination attempt was some kind of rogue operation by Russia’s secret services.

But Putin’s personal defence of the suspects and the inept cover-up job by the state-controlled media constitute strong, if wholly unintended, proof of the Kremlin’s deep complicity.

And now the Bellingcat revelations have added incontrovertible layers of detail to the emerging picture of a top-level GRU assassination squad operating on UK soil.

Using mostly open-source data, Bellingcat’s researchers first unearthed details of the passports the suspects used to enter the UK, published by British police.

Petrov and Boshirov’s passport numbers, it turned out, varied by just a single digit – and were issued by a Moscow office used exclusively for officials’ travel documents.

Even more suspiciously, Boshirov’s passport file was stamped ‘Do not reveal information’.

Then, yesterday, came the clincher. By trawling through the records of GRU academy graduation classes, Bellingcat matched the photos of ‘Boshirov’ to the real-life Anatoliy Vladimirovich Chepiga.

Once they had a name, details of Colonel Chepiga’s secret service popped up all over the internet, in online posts by veterans’ groups and even written in letters of gold on a stone monument to the decorated graduates of one of the GRU’s secret intelligence academies.

Chepiga served in Chechnya with the Spetznaz, the elite forces of the Federal Security Service, where by some reports he received 20 awards and decorations.

In short, Putin has been caught out telling analogue lies in a digital world.

Bellingcat became famous for its painstaking investigation into the downing of a Malaysian Airlines Boeing over Eastern Ukraine in July 2014, collecting photos from social media and intelligence data showing the hour-by-hour progress of the Buk missile system which downed the plane, from a military base inside Russia into Eastern Ukraine and back again.

Russia’s vehement denials of involvement were shown to be false. Now, with Bellingcat’s dozens of detailed revelations about the true identity of one of the would-be Skripal assassins, another of the Kremlin’s brazen lies has been carefully picked apart.

Perhaps the most terrifying part of the whole tragic story of the Skripal poisoning, which resulted in the death of an innocent British bystander, is the shocking combination of the Kremlin’s deadly intent and utter incompetence.

Instead of quietly disposing of a ‘traitor’, Chepiga and his as-yet-unnamed accomplice succeeded in contaminating parts of Salisbury, murdering an innocent woman, and revealing themselves to the whole world as bungling idiots.

Attempting extra-judicial execution on British soil is bad enough. But to spread deadly nerve agent around a cathedral city is irresponsible bungling on an epic scale.

The question now, of course, is what the response of the West will be to this damning revelation.

Will Theresa May call for renewed sanctions? Will America ratchet up their rhetoric? We shall have to wait and see in the coming days.

What is clear is that the Kremlin and its henchmen have been revealed for what they are – not just a bunch murderous liars, but terrible at both.

UPDATE: The Kommersant Evidence
Kommersant publishes interviews with people from Chepiga’s home village. The article makes clear he has not been seen there for many years. It states that opinions differ on whether Chepiga is Boshirov. One woman says she recognised Boshirov as Chepiga when he appeared on TV, especially the dark eyes, though she had not seen him since school. Another woman states it is not Chepiga as when she last saw him ten years ago he was already pretty bald, and he has a more open face, although the eyes are similarly brown.

Naturally mainstream media journalists are tweeting and publishing the man’s evidence and leaving out the woman’s evidence.

But the Kommersant article gives them a bigger challenge. Kommersant is owned by close Putin political ally, Putin’s former student flatmate, Chariman of Gazprominvestholdings and the UK’s richest resident, Alisher Usmanov. That Russia’s most authoritative paper, with ownership very close to Putin, is printing such open and honest reporting rather belies the “Russia is a dictatorship” narrative. And unlike the Guardian and BBC websites, on Kommersant website ordinary Russians can post freely their views on the case, and are.

One thing this does stand up is that Chepiga definitely exists.

The evidence mounts that Russia is not telling the truth about “Boshirov” and “Petrov”. If those were real identities, they would have been substantiated in depth by now. As we know of Yulia Skripal’s boyfriend, cat, cousin and grandmother, real depth on the lives and milieu of “Boshirov” and “Petrov” would be got out. It is plainly in the interests of Russia’s state and its oligarchy to establish that they truly exist, and concern for the privacy of individuals would be outweighed by that. The rights of the individual are not prioritised over the state interest in Russia.

But equally the identification of “Boshirov” with “Colonel Chepiga” is a nonsense.

The problem is with Bellingcat’s methodology. They did not start with any prior intelligence that “Chepiga” is “Boshirov”. They rather allegedly searched databases of GRU operatives of about the right age, then trawled photos in yearbooks of them until they found one that looked a bit like “Boshirov”. And guess what? It looks a bit like “Boshirov”. If you ignore the substantially different skull shape and nose.

Only the picture on the left is Chepiga. The two on the right are from “Boshirov’s” Russian passport application file, and the photo of “Boshirov” issued by Scotland Yard.

Like almost the entire internet, I assumed both black and white photos were from Chepiga’s files, and was willing to admit the identification of Chepiga with “Boshirov” as valid. But once you understand is that – as Bellingcat confirm if you read it closely – only the photo on the left is Chepiga, you start to ask questions.

The two guys on the right and the centre are undoubtedly the same person. But is the guy on the left the same, but younger?

<a href=”http://Betaface.com” rel=”nofollow”>Betaface.com</a>, which runs industry standard software, gives the faces an 83% similarity, putting the probability of them being the same person at 2.8%.

By comparison it gives me a 72% identity with Chepiga and a 2.1% chance of being him.

There is a superficial resemblance. But if you take the standard ratios used for facial recognition, you get a very different story. If you draw a line between the centre of the pupils of the two guys centre and right, and then take a perpendicular from that line to the tip of the nose, you get a key ratio. The two on the right both have a ratio of 100:75, which is unsurprising since they are the same person. The one on the left has a ratio of 100:68, which is very different.

To put that more simply, his nose is much shorter, and less certainly his eyes are further apart.

It is possible this could happen in photos but it still be the same person. The head would have to be tilted backward or forward at quite a sharp angle to alter these ratios, which does not seem to be the case. The camera could be positioned substantially above or below the subject, again not apparently the case. And the photo could be resized with height and width ratios changed. That would hard to detect.

But the three white dots across the bottom of the nose are particularly compelling (the middle one largely obscured by a red dot in the Chepiga photo). They illustrate that Chepiga has a snub nose and Boshirov something of a hook. Again, the software is reinforcing what they eye can plainly see.

However, there are also other ratios that are different. Chepiga has a narrower mouth compared to the distance between the pupils than the two photos of “Boshirov”, and that is measured on the same plane. The difference is 100-80 compared to 100-88. It is a ratio that can be changed by facial expression, but this does not seem to be the case here.

Professor Dame Sue Black of the University of Dundee is the world’s leading expert in facial forensic reconstruction. I once spent a fascinating lunch sitting next to her, while I was Rector. I shall contact her for her view on whether the guy on the left is the same person, and if she is kind enough to give me an opinion, I shall pass it on to you unadulterated.

This website is less definitive, but gives a nice clear result, and you can repeat it yourself without having to subscribe (unlike <a href=”http://Betaface.com” rel=”nofollow”>Betaface.com</a>).

Again for comparison, I tried two photos of myself 12 years apart and got “from nearly the same person”.

It is worth repeating that the only evidence that Chepiga is Boshirov offered by Bellingcat is this photo. The rest of their article simply attempts to establish Chepiga’s career.

This is gross hypocrisy by Bellingcat, who have argued that scores of photos of White Helmets being Jihadi fighters are not valid evidence because you cannot safely recognise faces from photographs.

Yet Higgins now claims his facial identification of Chepiga as Boshirov as “definitive” and “conclusive”, despite the absence of moles, scars and blemishes. Higgins stands exposed as a quite disgusting hypocrite. Let me go further. I do not believe that Higgins did not take the elementary step of running facial recognition technology over the photos, and I believe he is hiding the results from you. Is it not also astonishing that the mainstream media have not done this simple test?

The bulk of the Bellingcat article is just trying to prove the reality of the existence of Chepiga. This is hard to evaluate, but as the evidence to link him to “Boshirov” is non-existent, is a different argument. Having set out to find a GRU officer of the same age who looks a bit like “Boshirov”, they trumpet repeatedly the fact that Chepiga is about the same age as evidence, in a crass display of circular argument.

This unofficial website does indeed name Chepiga as a Hero of the Russian Federation and recipient of 20 awards, as Bellingcat claims. But it is impossible to know if it is authentic, and by contrast there is no Chepiga on the official list of Heroes of the Russian Federation, for the stated 2014 or for any other year, which Bellingcat fail to mention. Their other documents and anonymous sources are unverifiable.

The photo of the military school honours arch, with Chepiga added right at the end and not quite in line, looks to me very suspect. My surmise so far would be that most likely Bellingcat’s source of supply is Ukrainian, and trying to tie the Skripal affair into the Ukrainian civil war via Chepiga.

My view of the most likely explanation on presently available evidence is this:

Boshirov is not Boshirov, and the Russian Government are lying.
Boshirov is not Chepiga, and Bellingcat are lying.
The whole Skripal novichok story still does not hang together, and the British government are lying.

I will continue to form my opinions as further evidence becomes available.

UPDATE Incredibly, at 13.15 on 27 September the BBC TV News ran the story showing only the two photos of “Boshirov”, which of course are the same person, and not showing the photo of Chepiga at all!

Manafort confession charged “Hapsburg” – Ukraine

1 Share

The podium was top-notch in October 2012, shortly before the elections in Ukraine – with former EU Commission President, former Polish President and MEP and former Austrian Chancellor. Romano Prodi, Aleksander Kwasniewski and Alfred Gusenbauer discussed in Berlin about “Ukraine and the EU: elections, integration and economic problems”. The event was initiated by the European Center for Modern Ukraine (ECMU) based in Brussels.

That this think tank is actually set up at the behest of the Ukrainian government by Viktor Yanukovich, which is not apparent. Nor that the three gentlemen on the podium were actually paid to make a political mood, namely for a rapprochement between Ukraine and the EU. They were part of the so-called Hapsburg Group and toured Europe with this message between 2012 and 2014. Yanukovych is open.

Gusenbauer thought he had received his fee from a US company, he told the BBC in February , when the charges first came up. This company in turn was commissioned by Paul Manafort, later campaign manager Donald Trumps. This is now documented in Manafort’s confession to special investigator Robert Mueller last week. It leaves no doubt that the Hapsburg Group existed and its activities were financed by the Yanukovych regime – with or without the knowledge of those involved.

“Independent experts”

Manafort founded it in 2012 with the aim of “gathering a small group of high-profile, influential European leaders and politically credible friends who can act informally and without any visible relationship with the Ukrainian government.” Secrecy was part of the plan: the “independent experts” would speak for Yanukovych, and talk down the proceedings surrounding the incarcerated Yulia Timoshenko. In the end, the work was unsuccessful – the approach failed, Yanukovich was overthrown after protests at the Maidan in 2014.

Altogether should be flowed between Manafort and Yanukovich 60 million euros, by black money and money laundering. Manafort paid two million euros to the Hapsburg Group in 2012 and 2014 through at least four offshore accounts. In order to circumvent the European tax, it was “wrongly stated in the contract with the Hapsburg Group that their activities would not take place in Europe,” states the confession.

Gusenbauer received 30,000 euros per month, Bloomberg reported in June , when an unredigated memo from Mueller was online for a few hours. According to a 2012 Manafort employee reported: “Alfred Gusenbauer is ready to be discreet.” On the phone he had the idea to comment “from the underground”. Gusenbauer said he had made speeches in the conviction that he would approximate Ukraine to the EU. He did not question the origin of the money. He assured the platform Addendum to have his fee taxed in Austria. (Anna Sawerthal, 21.9.2018)

Manafort closes in Russia affair deal with investigator Mueller – USA

1 Share

Paul Manafort was the innocent victim of a conspiracy – as US President Donald Trump had been emphasized. Manafort himself wants to be much more difficult for the US president, because on Friday someone voiced his reproaches, who must know. He pleaded guilty to a court in Washington, DC.

From Trump’s point of view, probably even worse: his former shop steward has concluded a deal with Russia’s special investigator Robert Mueller. The deal is about informant activity, the transfer of documents and statements.

Trump’s defense team seems to have been surprised by the cooperation with Mueller. Just before the court hearing, Rudy Giuliani, the president’s lawyer, “The president has done nothing wrong and Paul Manafort wants to tell the truth.” A little later, the cooperation agreement was announced, whereupon Giuliani sent a new statement. “The President has done nothing wrong,” is only read in it – without reference to Manafort.

A maximum of ten years in prison

Only a few hours earlier it had even become known that the former lobbyist had reached an agreement with Mueller. According to this, Manafort, who led the election campaign of Donald Trump from June to August 2016, wanted to admit that he was guilty of conspiracy against the US (a broadly based indictment that may include tax evasion and money laundering). He also admitted that he had obstructed the judiciary through several attempts to influence the witnesses. US media speculated on Friday evening, Manafort had already made before the court hearing first testimony against Mueller to prove that he could offer the investigators something. The deal includes a point that prosecutors can use less punishment if they “are convinced that

Im Gegenzug zum Schuldeingeständnis gaben Mueller und sein Team dem 69-jährigen Manafort bereits jetzt Garantien hinsichtlich der Länge seiner Haft. Der frühere Lobbyist, der in einem von zwei Steuerhinterziehungsprozessen bereits schuldiggesprochen ist, soll nun zu nicht mehr als zehn Jahren Gefängnis verurteilt werden können. Theoretisch hätten die Anklagepunkte eine deutlich längere Haft möglich gemacht.

“Hapsburg Group”

Die Anklage gegen Manafort steht mit seiner Arbeit für Trump nicht unmittelbar in Zusammenhang. Das Team rund um Mueller war allerdings bei seinen Nachforschungen zu einer möglichen Zusammenarbeit der Trump-Kampagne mit Russland auf die Lobbying-Aktivitäten Manaforts für den früheren prorussischen Präsidenten der Ukraine, Wiktor Janukowitsch, gestoßen. Manafort hatte laut der Anklage mehrere Millionen Dollar aus diesen Einkünften nicht ordnungsgemäß versteuert und sich auch der Geldwäsche für seine Auftraggeber schuldig gemacht. Zudem hatte er sich nicht – so wie vorgeschrieben – als Auslandslobbyist registriert.

In the present “Information” – the text of the indictment, whose contents Manafort by confession referred to as true – is again from the “Hapsburg Group” the speech. It is the lobby group of European politicians, speculated by the US media, even Austria’s ex-chancellor Alfred Gusenbauer heard her. This denies.

There have been two procedures against Manafort, which are now to be merged. In the first of the two, he was already partially convicted in the jury in August, he himself had denied all allegations. Trump had then praised Manafort via Twitter because he was “under pressure” from the investigators “broken” or cooperate. He can not say that anymore either. (Manuel Escher, 14.9.2018)

The Caldero effect

“My sources tell me that during the lunch at the table where the Federals and Caldero were, it was agreed to share information (about crime) between the federals and Caldero, something never before seen. That in addition to the motorcycles that Caldero requested and that the mayoress already approved them.

The Caldero effect has already begun to bear fruit; Now we have to see what Governor Ricardo Rosselló is going to do with the State Police, which is in TOTAL and COMPLETE ABANDONMENT, very similar to that of the mayor.

Something good will come out of this competition, at least for now for the residents and visitors of San Juan; the rest of Puerto Rico will have to wait.”

Puerto Rico Officials Investigated for Corruption During Hurricane Relief
 

Corruption in Puerto Rico may have been the cause of U.S. relief supplies not reaching those in need following Hurricane Maria in September 2017.

The administration of San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz (D), who made headlines for her criticisms of President Donald Trump’s handling of the relief efforts, is now being investigated for alleged corruption.

According to a local news report from El Vocero de Puerto Rico, the FBI is investigating several suppliers for alleged corruption in San Juan.

It says the investigation was launched after former procurement director Yadira Molina filed a lawsuitclaiming she faced punishment for reporting illegal activities to the local comptroller. The investigation has since grown to include several contractors.

“On February 21, Molina sued the city council after reporting alleged acts of corruption in the shopping division in the town hall under the administration of Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto,” the report says.

The complaint states that Molina was blocked from her right “to report wrongdoing in her capacity as a private citizen, not as a public employee.” It says she was retaliated against for reporting an allegedly rigged system and was fired for attempting to report corruption, and includes other additional claims.

There were many reports following the hurricane that U.S. supplies were trapped in the ports, with local corruption preventing proper distribution. The claims were largely dismissed by legacy news outlets as conspiracy, and were used to frame Trump’s relief efforts in a negative light. The Trump administration later bypassed local officials, and the U.S. military began delivering the goods directly.

Carlos Osorio, the FBI media representative at the San Juan field office, told The Epoch Times in October 2017 that the FBI received several complaints of alleged corruption in the distribution of relief goods, and that the FBI is required to look into criminal complaints.

Carmen Yulín 2020 y el efecto Caldero | Opinión
 

“Para nosotros una sola vida que se ha perdido es suficiente”. Así comenzó la alcaldesa de San Juan, Carmen Yulín Cruz Soto, la conferencia de prensa que se llevó a cabo ayer en el Coliseo Roberto Clemente para anunciar la designación del coronel José Luis Caldero como comisionado de la Policía Municipal capitalina.

En Análisis 630 por NotiUno habíamos adelantado el pasado viernes que este nombramiento estaba ya adjudicado, lo cual nos llevó a anunciar el título de esta columna, pues entendemos que políticamente es un nombramiento de IMPACTO.

La alcaldesa de San Juan vio la crisis en su abandonado municipio cuando a principios de junio de 2018 se reportaron seis asesinatos en ese primer fin de semana. Según datos publicados en este periódico por el reportero Miguel Rivera Puig, podemos ver que marzo, junio y julio en los pasados años han sido meses calientes con respecto a los asesinatos en la ciudad capital.

Caldero, por su parte, trae en su hoja de servicio el haber comandado durante tres años la superintendencia de la Policía de Puerto Rico bajo la administración de Alejandro García Padilla; unos tres años de baja en prácticamente todas las estadísticas de criminalidad en Puerto Rico. Aun cuando no fue la primera opción de García Padilla para la superintendencia, logró lo que otros no habían podido.

Bajo su mando en la superintendencia, el coronel Caldero dio ascensos a tutiplén, los cuales redundarían en apoyo a sus nuevas funciones. No se ocupó de la División de Drogas y Narcóticos como se requería en aquel momento, lo cual luego llevó a varios arrestos por parte del Negociado Federal de Investigaciones (FBI).

En la conferencia de prensa para anunciar la designación del coronel Caldero, la alcaldesa habló más de las estadísticas de criminalidad en su municipio que de los atributos y necesidades de la Policía Municipal.

Esas conversaciones y negociaciones entre la alcaldesa y Caldero deben haber sido bien interesantes.

Caldero de por sí es un hábil y experimentado negociador y la alcaldesa es de por sí mandona y exhibe quién manda.

Cómo esos dos jueyes machos se van a llevar está por verse. Lo que sí es CLARO para mí es que la alcaldesa necesita urgentemente de Caldero y no él de ella. Por ende, estoy seguro que Caldero le debe haber establecido los límites de su entrometimiento y hasta dónde no será aceptable el maltrato verbal a sus subordinados.

La alcaldesa va a tener que tragar hondo, suprimir sus impulsos de rabia y malacrianzas para que esto funcione, pues si funciona políticamente ella luciría espectacular.

Si ambos logran lo que Caldero anunció ayer en cuanto a “traer paz y seguridad a los residentes y visitantes de San Juan”, esto la pondría a ella en una posición muy ventajosa para lo que decida hacer políticamente de camino al 2020.

Ayer en la conferencia de prensa la alcaldesa llevó varios mensajes, mensajes subliminales, pero directos.

El primero fue que ella no es “anti yankee” y que puede y está trabajando a “full swing” con las autoridades federales.

Esto quedó demostrado con la presencia del “special agent in charge” del FBI para Puerto Rico e Islas Vírgenes, Douglas Leff. También envió un mensaje de compromiso con la reforma de la Policía estatal al invitar y estar allí presente el monitor (para mí es el oficial de probatoria de la Policía de Puerto Rico), Arnaldo Claudio.

La presencia del máximo líder en Puerto Rico del FBI es significativa, pues según se ha publicado en este periódico por Melissa Correa, el FBI está investigando malos manejos en la división de compras del municipio de San Juan, lo cual me llama la atención que la jefa de Fiscalía federal, Rosa Emilia (qué se harían si no nos tuvieran) Rodríguez no estuviese allí.

Mis fuentes me indican que durante el almuerzo en la mesa donde estaban los federales y Caldero se acordó compartir información (sobre la criminalidad) entre los federales y Caldero, algo nunca antes visto. Eso además de las motoras que Caldero pidió y que ya se las aprobó la alcaldesa.

El efecto Caldero ya comenzó a rendir frutos; ahora hay que ver qué va a hacer el gobernador Ricardo Rosselló con la Policía estatal, la cual está en TOTAL y COMPLETO ABANDONO, muy similar a la de la alcaldesa.

Algo bueno va a salir de esta competencia, al menos por ahora para los residentes y visitantes de San Juan; el resto de Puerto Rico tendrá que esperar.

Francisco Reyes Caparrós talks about his experience.

A Rosa Emilia “el poder se le fue” – NotiCel

In an investigation by NotiCel last year , it had already been revealed that judges and magistrates had indicated in writing their concern that the federal prosecutor’s office was presenting perjured testimony from police in criminal cases.

Jueces señalan que fiscalía federal usa evidencia falsa provista por policías (documentos + video)

Shared by 1 person

A pesar de que una de las razones del Departamento de Justicia federal para poner a la Policía de Puerto Rico bajo sindicatura fue que agentes fabricaban casos para procesar ilegalmente a los ciudadanos, una serie de decisiones judiciales en el Tribunal Federal para el distrito de Puerto Rico delata que la fiscalía federal ha usado en varias ocasiones a policías que mintieron para procesar a personas ilegalmente.

En los casos identificados por NotiCel, el testimonio perjuro o “increíble” de los policías no ha resultado en que los casos sean retirados ni que los agentes sean procesados por mentirle o engañar a los fiscales.

Además, la oficina de Puerto Rico de la fiscalía federal también ha sido fustigada por los jueces del Tribunal de Apelaciones de Boston por conducirse de manera impropia al atentar contra los derechos constitucionales de los acusados.

En respuesta a la investigación de NotiCel en alianza con el programa Jay y sus Rayos X, la jefa de fiscales, Rosa Emilia Rodríguez Vélez, minimizó los señalamientos y señaló que “[s]ería impropio de nuestra parte participar en una entrevista para comentar sobre decisiones judiciales emitidas por los magistrados y jueces de este distrito, y por los jueces del Primer Circuito”.

“El manejo de casos criminales por parte de nuestra oficina es objeto de cientos de decisiones judiciales al año, las cuales es nuestro deber acatar y respetar. El seleccionar decisiones simplemente basándose en alguna crítica judicial al manejo de algún caso en específico no representa de manera alguna la trayectoria de convicciones que obtienen nuestros fiscales en los tribunales”, añadió Rodríguez Vélez, quien, antes de ser fiscal federal, fue fiscal estatal.

Pero la conducta cuestionable de los fiscales está lejos de ser una aislada. Ya por lo menos cada uno de los cuatro magistrados que sirven en el Tribunal Federal para el distrito de Puerto Rico, así como un juez y un panel de jueces apelativos, ha señalado problemas de veracidad en el testimonio que usan los fiscales o de conducta impropia por parte de esos fiscales.

En conjunto, las expresiones judiciales plantean que hay problemas de violación de derechos constitucionales en el aparato de investigación criminal más poderoso en la Isla. Además, ponen en relieve que, en 20 de los pasados 24 años, la fiscalía federal en la Isla ha estado a cargo de personas que no han pasado por el proceso regular de nombramiento presidencial y aprobación en el Senado federal, en vez, los jefes de fiscales federales se han mantenido en el poder por decisión de los propios jueces del distrito, quienes no han tomado cartas en el asunto de manera evidente, a pesar del ya abultado récord de excesos en contra de la fiscalía federal.

“Fabulistas”

Después de que una persona es arrestada por agentes federales, comparece ante un magistrado y ese es el primer turno al bate para que los abogados de defensa puedan impugnar la evidencia que, en la mayoría de los casos, consiste en testimonio de agentes de la Policía de Puerto Rico y artículos ocupados por órdenes de allanamiento.

NotiCel ha recopilado decisiones judiciales que, por lo menos desde el 2015, alertan sobre las mentiras o expresiones engañosas de policías.

En un caso que prosiguió porque hubo otra evidencia además de las declaraciones cuestionables de los policías, la magistrada Silvia Carreño Coll dijo:

“No puedo evitar recalcar que la Oficina del Fiscal Federal de Puerto Rico se supone que actúe en el interés público. No creo que el interés público sea servido, sin embargo, por la promoción y dependencia de parte del gobierno en perjuros y fabulistas; esto es más cierto aún cuando el perjuro es un servidor público, arropado con el prestigio del estado. Por eso es desalentador ver que el gobierno siga dando su aval a las falsedades del Agente (José) Ortiz (Merced), porque sugiere que el Agente Ortiz, y otros como él, continuarán teniendo una lección perversa: que los actos oficiales de deshonestidad no tienen consecuencias, no hay reprimenda, ni expulsión, ni procesamiento, mientras estén comprometidos con los intereses del gobierno. Esto es un triste estado de los asuntos, y uno del que el gobierno no debe enorgullecerse”.

En 2016, el magistrado Marcos López indicó, en un caso cuya supresión de evidencia fue sostenida por el juez Jay García Gregory, que

“Entonces, dado estos cronogramas, el testimonio de Ortiz, una tercera persona sin motivo alegado para ser menos que veraz, y evidencia documental confiable, el policía (Carlos R.) Torres (Anaya) no explicó esta inconsistencia o explicar cualquier desviación en el tiempo reportado en la orden de allanamiento. El tribunal, entonces, encuentra por preponderancia de la evidencia que las aseveraciones en la declaración jurada que apoya la orden de allanamiento sobre las investigaciones del 29 de mayo de 2015 fueron hechas con desprecio intencional o temerario de la verdad”.

También en 2016, y en un caso de supuesta posesión de armas ilegales que está todavía pendiente de revisión, la magistrada Camille L. Vélez Rivé encontró que:

“Creerle al policía (Santiago) Aguila (Rodríguez) nos haría concluir que tiene visión “biónica”, no estaba afectado por el reflejo a esa hora en un día soleado, y que estaba en un ángulo “perfecto” y en posición privilegiada. Esto es simplemente imposible de creer. Si se necesitara más, suficiente decir que “los jueces no estamos requeridos a divorciarnos del sentido común” cuando, como aquí, la explicación es “inherentemente increíble”.

En un caso excepcional que fue desestimado por la fiscalía  después de que se encontrara que los policías habían manipulado unas cámaras de seguridad, el magistrado Bruce McGiverin indicó que:

“Debido a que (el policía municipal Luis) Burgos (Nieves) testificó sobre cuatro versiones conflictivas e irreconciliables sobre la manera en que recibió la información de un confidente anónimo, encuentro, por preponderancia de la evidencia, que Burgos declaró falsamente de manera intencional y a sabiendas, o, por lo menos, con grave menosprecio a la verdad, que recibió información de un confidente anónimo”.

Al sostener esta determinación del magistrado McGiverin, el juez Gustavo Gelpí, quien tiene a su cargo el caso de la reforma de la Policía, dijo en una decisión:

“En la medida en que los casos federales dependan incrementalmente de las acciones del personal de ley y orden local, hay aún más razones para requerir que dichos oficiales actúen en máxima concordancia con los estándares constitucionales federales. Esto requiere que en todo momento los oficiales de la policía provean testimonio veraz, así como los mismísimos mandatos de la Cuarta Enmienda. Simplemente no hay otra ruta”.

Jueces “muy experimentados” han perdido la paciencia con la fiscalía

Además, de estas expresiones por usar testimonio menos que veraz de parte de agentes de la Policía, la fiscalía también ha sido censurada por manejos que se entienden poco éticos, como hacerle expresiones indebidas a los jurados. Este mismo año, en un caso que a pesar de todo acabó siendo resuelto a favor de la fiscalía, la jueza Sandra Lynch, del Primer Circuito de Apelaciones en Boston, hizo expresiones fuertes y claras sobre este patrón de conducta.

“Tiene a una serie de jueces muy experimentados que han visto casos de Puerto Rico por décadas ya y el problema de argumentos impropios de parte de la Fiscalía Federal y el Departamento de Justicia en Puerto Rico es un problema recurrente, y que usted se pare ahí a decir ‘no, no concedemos que fue un error’ hace que nos preocupemos aún más por la conducta impropia de la oficina que usted está representando”, le dijo Lynch a la abogada que defendió a la fiscalía federal en la vista.

“Tenemos 20, 30 años de casos que plantean este punto una y otra y otra y otra vez”, recalcó.

El aparato investigativo “más poderoso que jamás existió”

La gravedad de estos señalamientos se realza cuando se toma en cuenta que lo que se critica es la actuación del aparato de ley y orden más poderoso que existe en Puerto Rico.

“El mecanismo de ley y orden más acaudalado, más poderoso, más fuerte y más sofisticado que jamás existió en la historia de la humanidad es el gobierno de los Estados Unidos, es la oficina de los fiscales federales. Si tú comparas eso con lo que está pasando económicamente con el gobierno local, con la policía local, no hay comparación”, comentó Eric Vos, jefe de la oficina del Defensor Público Federal. Su oficina está llamada a defender a los acusados federales que, en el 90% de los casos, demuestren ser indigentes y no puedan costearse una defensa.

Uno de ellos fue Francisco, un nombre escogido para proteger su verdadera identidad, quien fue acusado por narcotráfico y armas de fuego por el testimonio de un policía que se probó, con evidencia científica por señal de celular, que estaba en un pueblo distinto al pueblo en el que supuestamente estaba cuando recopiló la evidencia para arrestar a Francisco.

Aunque los abogados de Francisco pudieron atacar certeramente el testimonio del agente de la Policía con esta evidencia, el hombre optó por declararse culpable porque la fiscalía, en vez de retirar el caso y dejarlo libre, optó por proseguir pero, a la misma vez, le hicieron una oferta irresistible para declararse culpable.

“La ley federal si te vas a juicio y sales culpable, es lo que el juez determine y lamentablemente los años que me iban a echar, no era, tuve que transar y levantar las manos culpable para entonces cogerme una probatoria”, dijo en entrevista con NotiCel.

La American Civil Liberties Union, ACLU, fue uno de los grupos que impulsó la acción federal y le parece contradictorio que por un lado Justicia federal mantenga la Reforma de la Policía y, por el otro, usen testimonio falso de policías para procesar sus casos criminales.

“Si la fiscalía federal opta por ignorar esta situación, pues lo que se crea es un ambiente de impunidad dentro de la Policía, de desconfianza en la población y eso tiene unas repercusiones inmensas en el debido proceso de ley de las personas encausadas que están expuestas a cumplir sentencias de manera ilegal”, reaccionó Josué González, abogado de la ACLU.

“A la hora de procesar casos criminales la fiscalía federal en Puerto Rico debe ser muy cuidadosa y estudiar con mucho detenimiento los testimonios de estos policías y asegurarse de todas las maneras posibles que ese testimonio es fidedigno y que se ajusta a la verdad porque puede afectar la libertad de mucha gente”, concluyó.

A Rosa Emilia “el poder se le fue”

Desde afuera, la figura de Rosa Emilia Rodríguez Vélez, directora de la oficina del Fiscal federal en Puerto Rico, parece intocable, y no es para menos, pues se trata de la persona con mayor poder en un territorio de los Estados Unidos y que ocupa el cargo de manera interina desde hace 11 años.

No obstante, como han recalcado numerosas canciones, series de televisión y películas, una persona no debería tener tanto poder, y esa es la percepción de Francisco Reyes Caparrós, quien salió airoso el jueves al demandar a la oficina de Rodríguez Vélez por acoso laboral y discrimen.

A juicio de Reyes Caparrós, quien se desempeñaba como Especialista de Inteligencia del 2009 al 2015, a la titular de la oficina “el poder se le fue”.

“Yo creo que el poder se le fue, yo creo que el poder… se desvirtuó el rol de la oficina con el rol de ella y se mezclaron lo que era el trabajo por Puerto Rico, con la apariencia de ella. Yo creo que ahí se desvirtuó lo que debe pasar en la oficina. El trabajo de la oficina es excelente, la gente que trabaja allí son excelentes. Yo creo que se desvirtuó”, consideró Reyes Caparrós en entrevista con NotiCel.

Reyes Caparrós reaccionó de esa forma al abordársele sobre la labor de Rodríguez Vélez y sus expresiones durante una reunión en las que, de acuerdo al exempleado, la titular exclamó “tráiganme un juez”.

Ese mandato hacía referencia a que, desde la oficina de mayor poder investigativo en la Isla, se iba a acusar a un juez por órdenes de Rodríguez Vélez. Poco tiempo después, trascendió que el juez Manuel Acevedo Hernández, quien acostumbraba a llevar casos entre Aguadilla y Mayagüez, fue relevado de sus funciones y su vivienda fue allanada por el Buró Federal de Investigaciones (FBI, por sus siglas en inglés).

“En vez de ser el trabajo de la oficina, era el trabajo de Rosa Emilia. En vez de ser la misión de la oficina, era la misión de Rosa Emilia, y eso no debe ser. Debe ser siempre la misión de la oficina, del país, del pueblo. Esa es mi opinión. Yo estoy viciado, yo viví unos años de calvario. Estuve seis años que desde el 2012 hasta el día de hoy porque no es fácil desde que uno se va”, aseguró Reyes Caparrós en referencia a los eventos que provocaron su demanda por hostigamiento laboral.

En entrevistas previas, Reyes Caparrós afirmó que el interinato de Rosa Emilia “ha sido muy largo”, y junta a ella deben reemplazar a los fiscales federales Jaqueline Nova y José Capó.

En su caso, según trascendió durante el juicio, Rodríguez Vélez ordenó que jefes administrativos velaran al especialista y luego lo transfirieron de oficina en más de dos ocasiones, además de impartirle instrucciones y labores que los superiores sabían no se podían cumplir.

En ese tiempo, y ante la ausencia de casos prominentes ligados al terrorismo en la Isla, el exempleado también desempeñaba funciones administrativas relacionadas a seguridad y crímenes de cuello blanco y lavado de dinero, análisis de cuentas bancarias, compra de propiedades, compra de vehículos.

En una instancia, el especialista se percató de la existencia de errores humanos en las estadísticas del crimen que manejaba la oficina, puesto que las cifras estaban infladas para los años 2011, 2012 y 2013. Sin embargo, sus superiores no quisieron corregir los datos por el desdén que había en su contra y Rodríguez Vélez reportó a la prensa los números equivocados.

En una investigación de NotiCel el año pasado, ya se había revelado también que jueces y magistrados habían señalado por escrito su preocupación porque la fiscalía federal estaba presentando testimonio perjuro de parte de policías en casos criminales.

El exempleado también fue “sistemáticamente alejado” de sus compañeros de trabajo de manera intencional y catalogado como un “espía ruso” por informar que viajaría a Rusia para un viaje cultural.

Debido a esa noción, Reyes Caparrós fue removido de sus funciones por más de un año y fue referido a la Oficina del Inspector General y al FBI. Ambas entidades concluyeron que no hubo conducta criminal, pues el demandante cumplió con el protocolo necesario para requerir un permiso de viajes.

Por eso le saltan dudas al preguntársele si la funcionaria sería capaz de aprovecharse de su posición para realizar procesamientos criminales selectivos.

“Yo tengo mis dudas por lo que yo viví y mi opinión está viciada por mis experiencias”, afirmó el exempleado, quien no titubeó en aclarar que el trabajo que se realiza en la oficina del Fiscal Federal es de excelencia, pero podría ser mejor si no fuera un ambiente tan hostil.

En ese aspecto, Reyes Caparrós no ha sido tímido en enfatizar el “terror” que predomina entre los empleados de la oficina, quienes viven sometidos a las exigencias de Rodríguez Vélez.

Incluso, quienes no se han atrevido a denunciar la ola de incomodidades que impera en el edificio se le acercaron para felicitarlo por la victoria judicial del pasado jueves.

“Definitivamente ella no queda bien, pero yo no lo veo en ella. Esto no es una cuestión de que hay una venganza o algo. Esto es una cuestión de que la gente debe saber que el sistema funciona, que la justicia existe, y que estos ambientes no se deben vivir”, planteó Reyes Caparrós.

No empece a la constancia de la hostilidad por la alta jerarquía, a Reyes Caparrós le gustaría regresar a su empleo, tal como solicitó en la demanda porque confía en la labor de sus pares.

El proceso judicial que ganó no ha finalizado, ya que ahora le corresponde al juez determinar la cantidad de dinero por concepto de “front pay”, o todo aquello que el perjudicado dejará de devengar por perder su trabajo. A ese monto, que podría ser más de $250,000, se añadirían los honorarios de la abogada López Ortiz y los $300,000 que ordenó el jurado.

Igualmente, el proceso no ha culminado para la oficina de la titular Rodríguez Vélez, pues restan dos asuntos pendientes que tiene ante el tribunal, también por represalias contra empleados.

Estos son: la fiscal Carmen Márquez, a quien sancionaron cuando la identificaron como testigo de Reyes Caparrós, y el director de la división de Apelaciones, Nelson Pérez, quien renunció después de laborar en la oficina por más de 20 años.

“Esto debe servir de ejemplo para que todas las demás personas que estén siendo oprimidas, no solamente en fFscalía federal, sino en cualquier otro lugar de trabajo que tengan el valor, que se debe dar el paso. Uno no puede vivir con miedo, velando las esquinas, eso no es vida”, finalizó.

Trump’s Lawyers, in Confidential Memo, Argue to Head Off a Historic Subpoena
 

“Ensuring that the office remains sacred and above the fray of shifting political winds and gamesmanship is of critical importance,” they wrote.

They argued that the president holds a special position in the government and is busy running the country, making it difficult for him to prepare and sit for an interview. They said that because of those demands on Mr. Trump’s time, the special counsel’s office should have to clear a higher bar to get him to talk. Mr. Mueller, the president’s attorneys argued, needs to prove that the president is the only person who can give him the information he seeks and that he has exhausted all other avenues for getting it.

“The president’s prime function as the chief executive ought not be hampered by requests for interview,” they wrote. “Having him testify demeans the office of the president before the world.”

They also contended that nothing Mr. Trump did violated obstruction-of-justice statutes, making both a technical parsing of what one such law covers and a broad constitutional argument that Congress cannot infringe on how he exercises his power to supervise the executive branch. Because of the authority the Constitution gives him, it is impossible for him to obstruct justice by shutting down a case or firing a subordinate, no matter his motivation, they said.

“Every action that the president took was taken with full constitutional authority pursuant to Article II of the United States Constitution,” they wrote of the part of the Constitution that created the executive branch. “As such, these actions cannot constitute obstruction, whether viewed separately or even as a totality.”

That constitutional claim raises novel issues, according to legal experts. Under the Constitution, the president wields broad authority to control the actions of the executive branch. But the Supreme Court has ruled that Congress can impose some restrictions on his exercise of that power, including by upholding statutes that limit his ability to fire certain officials. As a result, it is not clear whether statutes criminalizing obstruction of justice apply to the president and amount to another legal limit on how he may wield his powers.

The letter does not stress legal opinions by the Justice Department in the Nixon and Clinton administrations that held that a sitting president cannot be indicted, in part because it would impede his ability to carry out his constitutional responsibilities. But in recent weeks, Mr. Giuliani has pointed to those memos as part of a broader argument that, by extension, Mr. Trump also cannot be subpoenaed.

Israel flatly denies deal with Russia on Iranian presence in Syria – DEBKAfile
 

The Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem issued a statement Saturday night clearly repudiating media reports  that claimed Israel and Russia had cone to terms on Iranian forces in Syria. The statement emphasized that no agreement had been reached on this matter; Israel continues to demand the total evacuation of all Iranian forces from Syria and reserves its own freedom of action in this regard. DEBKAfile’s sources reported on Thursday, after a phone conversation between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and President Vladimir Putin, that progress had been made in negotiations but nothing had been agreed.

Reina “un ambiente de terror” en oficina de Rosa Emilia – YouTube

Reina “un ambiente de terror” en oficina de Rosa Emilia
Abogado que ganó a la Fiscalía federal alega que allí “reina el terror”
 

El exespecialista de inteligencia Francisco Reyes Caparrós, quien ayer ganó una demanda contra la Fiscalía federal por someterlo a un patrón de actos de represalia y hostigamiento laboral, afirmó hoy que el ambiente que se vive en esa oficina es similar a un “reino del terror”.

Acusó, de paso, a la jefa de los fiscales federales, Rosa Emilia Rodríguez, así como a los fiscales federales Jaqueline Nova y José Capó de establecer el ambiente hostil que describió.

Las declaraciones de Reyes Caparrós ocurrieron en una entrevista radial (Radio Isla 1320) que concedió a horas de que consiguiera que un jurado compuesto por ocho hombres y ocho mujeres determinara unánimemente que la alta jefatura de la Fiscalía federal lo sometió a un patrón de represalias y un ambiente laboral hostil, y que, por los daños emocionales que le causaron, el demandante debe ser compensado con una suma de $300,000.

“El trabajo que hace la oficina es un trabajo honrado por la criminalidad. Pero como se bate el cobre entre los empleados, eso es otro cantar. Allí es el reino del terror o haces lo que yo digo o haces lo que yo digo. Allí no puedes disentir, no puedes quejarte. O te sometes, o te sometes”, precisó el abogado.

Añadió que “ya es hora de un cambio de liderato en esa oficina. Ya es hora que se vayan, porque se empoderan, se creen dioses y el trabajo no es de ello, el trabajo es para el país”.

Reyes Caparrós señaló que se le debe dar paso a un nuevo liderato que trate bien a los empleados.

Específicamente, declaró que “tiene que venir gente nueva, con buenas visiones y que traten a los empleados (bien), porque el trabajo hay que hacerlo como quiera, pero no puede vivir el reino del terror ahí”.

En sus declaraciones, el exespecialista de inteligencia llegó a decir que las reuniones que se hacen en la Fiscalía federal incluyen gritos, que Rodríguez ha llamado a los fiscales “locos” y que “es posible” que se hayan manipulado casos para lograr convicciones.

“Había momentos donde se daban instrucciones de que a esta persona hay que buscar la manera de encausarla”, llegó a decir.

A modo de ejemplo, alegó que Rodríguez pidió procesar a un juez estatal.

“Es una aberración estar en una reunión y que dijera: ‘yo quiero un juez, tráiganme un juez’, porque ella quería un juez. Ese era el target, un juez estatal”, precisó.

El periodista Rafael Lenín López le preguntó que, si esas expresiones ocurrieron antes de que se juzgara al exjuez del Tribunal de Aguadilla Manuel Acevedo Hernández, convicto en abril de 2015 por corrupción judicial, a lo que Reyes Caparrós contestó con un “sí”.

Por otro lado, el abogado explicó que el patrón de hostigamiento en su contra comenzó luego que el 10 de febrero de 2010 solicitara un chaleco a prueba de balas para la exfiscal federal Idalia Mestey, porque esta había recibido una amenaza de muerte.

Reyes Caparrós alegó que su acto no fue visto con buenos ojos por Rodríguez, ya que Mestey se había querellado contra la Fiscalía federal por hostigamiento sexual.

Ella entendía que yo no era leal y que yo ayudaba a ella, a Idalia, en contra de la oficina”, comentó.

Dijo, sin embargo, que no se arrepiente de haber solicitado la protección contra Mestey, porque en ese momento ella atendía un caso de crímenes violentos en el que las víctimas fue un policía que recibió de 60 balazos y la hermana de un fiscal.

AlJazeeraEnglish’s YouTube Videos: 🇬🇭 Spirit Child: Ritual Killings in Ghana | REWIND
 

From: AlJazeeraEnglish
Duration: 24:55

Every year an unknown number of children – most of them disabled in some way – are murdered in northern Ghana because of the belief that they are in some way possessed by evil spirits set on bringing ill fortune to those around them.

The practice is the consequence of ancient traditions and customs and is shaped by poverty and ignorance in remote and often marginalised communities. No one knows the exact number of these ritual deaths across Ghana, Benin, Burkina Faso and parts of Nigeria, but some believe it could be in the thousands.

For years, NGOs and the Ghanaian authorities have tried advocacy and education in an attempt to eradicate the practice but with only marginal success. Well into the 21st century, Ghana’s so-called spirit children are still being killed because they carry the blame for the misfortunes of everyday life.

In 2013, award-winning Ghanaian investigative reporter Anas Aremeyaw Anas set out to track down and expose some of those responsible for the senseless killings – determined to bring them to justice and stop the practice.

Back then, he wrote: “When I first heard about this I could not believe it was happening in my country in the 21st century … The practice originally emerged as a way for poor families to deal with deformed or disabled children that they cannot look after. These families approach village elders known as concoction men and inform them that they suspect their child to be a so-called spirit child.

The concoction man then takes the father of the child to visit a soothsayer who confirms whether or not the child is truly evil, without ever actually laying eyes on them. Once this confirmation has been received, the concoction man brews a poisonous liquid from local roots and herbs and force-feeds it to the child, almost always resulting in death.

Over time, this practice has become a perceived solution to any problems a family might be having at the time of a child’s birth. By blaming the child for sickness in the family, or the father’s inability to find work or provide money to support his dependants, these communities have found an otherworldly explanation for their problems … But infanticide has always been a crime against humanity.”

Now, five years later, Anas, spoke to REWIND about why he doesn’t want to show his identity, the dangers of undercover journalism in Africa, and what has become of the concoction men that killed those children.

“Most African journalists who do investigations have a series of dangers pointing at them. You just have to be yourself and think about how to survive. I came up with the beads that I wear, so people don’t see my face. I’m sure that some of my colleagues, in Nigeria or Malawi have other ways to protect themselves,” Anas told Al Jazeera.

For me, it is a good story when the bad guy is named, shamed and put in jail.

Anas Aremeyaw Anas, reporter

Talking about the threats facing investigative journalists, he said: “Generally, people definitely want to point guns at you or some will try to kidnap you. And most of these things have happened; getting death threats and legal suits is normal, most of my colleagues in the continent suffer that.”

“There is nothing more frustrating than doing a story on someone and then walking on the same streets with that person. It is even more dangerous and that can easily end the life of any journalist.”

“We don’t make stories so that people can just read them and smile in their bedrooms. We make stories that have impact on the society. For me, it is a good story when the bad guy is named, shamed and put in jail … Many people have gone to jail as a result of my work and I’m proud of it.”

Anas also talked about the concoction men that he met during his Spirit Child investigation.

“A legal process was started but they were too old, so at the time that the process could finish, some of them couldn’t even make it to court. But the key thing that happened in that story is that it told the community that whoever you are, when you attempt to do some of these things, you are going behind bars.”

“For the first time, those witch doctors were arrested and put before court. That sends a strong signal to all witch doctors to be careful, that when you are dealing with the life of a child it’s a completely different matter. And we can’t sit down for these children to be killed in the way they are being killed.”

8:23 AM 6/2/2018 –  Federal Justice investigates Rosa Emilia Rodríguez | 7:47 AM 6/2/2018 – “The country does not benefit in any way with people who are working with fear, under threats…” – Bamily López, attorney for Francisco Reyes Caparrós

Quote: “Federal Justice Department attorney Jason Weida declined to comment to the press after the jury’s verdict. For her part, the plaintiff’s attorney, Bamily López, said she was surprised by how quickly the jury’s verdict was made. “If Francisco could prevail against the most powerful person in Puerto Rico with the highest federal rank, if Francisco could prevail with a lawyer against four attorneys from the federal prosecutor’s office in Massachusetts with all the resources of the General Council office … and you have to demand justice. 

The country does not benefit in any way with people who are working with fear, under threats,

said the lawyer. He mentioned that two other lawsuits for reprisals are pending against the federal prosecutor’s office. 

One filed by the director of the Appeals Division, Nelson Pérez and the other was submitted by the prosecutor Carmen Márquez. Pérez sent a text message to Reyes Caparrós in which he said “divine justice was done”. 

Demandante gana caso contra Fiscalía federal por hostigamiento laboral. Francisco Reyes Caparrós pudiera ser compensado por $300,000 – Endi

The Royal Road To Banana Republic, Thanks To FBI!

By Michael Novakhov

Former intelligence specialist Francisco Reyes Caparrós won the lawsuit against the local Federal Prosecutor’s office for “labor harassment and acts of reprisal” on 5/31/2018. Now it looks and feels like the same Process, Part 2: Who planted the “evidence” (“a presentation on socialism”) in Reyes’ computer? Was this the FBI? Answer this question, Mr. Cases. If this was done, then in principle it can be done to everyone and to everyone’s computer. This opens the road to the abuse of power and lays the foundations for the totalitarian, dictatorial rule, namely the same old “BANANA REPUBLIC”. It becomes the issue of public and national safety, security, and concerns.

M.N.: Who placed “a presentation on socialism” in Reyes’ computer? 

Did the FBI do that? 

Did Mr. Cases authorize it? Was it “his job”, was this within the scope of his duties? (Previously he denied that dealing with the extensions for Reyes’ investigation was “his job”: “He admitted that he did not verify the justification of the extensions of the investigation. “That’s not part of my job,” answered Cases.)
Was this the FBI set up, the attempt to frame Mr. Reyes by surreptitiously placing the “presentation on socialism” in his computer? 
Why was this circumstance not covered by the mainstream media? This fact is the public record. Me thinks, humbly, that this case needs further investigation. 

Did the Puerto Rico branch of the FBI, under the Carlos Cases Directorship at that time, try to illegally plant “evidence” in Reyes’ computer?!

“A presentation on socialism was also found on Reyes’s computer.2*

*2 It was later determined that someone other than Reyes placed
the presentation on his computer.

3
This led the Department of Justice’s Office
of the Inspector General to investigate Reyes. In connection
with this investigation, FBI agents interviewed Reyes and, while
Reyes was on furlough in October 2013, searched his office.
During and as a result of the investigation, Reyes’s job duties
were changed.
In November 2013, Reyes filed a formal EEO complaint
alleging retaliation by his superiors, including, among other
things, the OIG investigation, his interrogation by the FBI, and

the placement of the socialism presentation on his computer.”

False evidence and FBI apparently are the good old friends.
“False evidencefabricated evidenceforged evidence or tainted evidence is information created or obtained illegally…”

Did the FBI do this in Reyes case, and why? Answer this question, Mr. Cases.

7 Puerto Rico cops indicted for selling drugs, guns

mikenova shared this story .

Seven police officers in Puerto Rico, including some assigned to drug units, have been charged for trafficking and distributing marijuana and other narcotics, the island’s U.S. attorney’s office announced Monday evening.

“When the officer with a gun and a badge is no different from the trafficker peddling drugs in the street, we all suffer. That is why the U.S. Attorney’s Office and our law enforcement partners are determined to root out corruption, wherever and in whatever forms it may be found,” Rosa Emilia Rodríguez-Vélez, U.S. Attorney for the District of Puerto Rico, said in a statement.

Four indictments reveal charges against seven cops for actions that contradict with their duties to protect and uphold the law.

“Today’s charges represent a grave breach of the oath taken by these sworn officers,” Douglas Leff, the special agent in charge of the FBI in San Juan, said.

The first indictment states each of the four officers assigned to the Caguas Drug Unit possessed pot with intent to distribute and also carried a firearm while committing that crime. Each person could face up to five years in prison for the drug charge and possible life for the firearm violation.

Another officer was listed in a second indictment for possessing detectable amounts of weed with intent to distribute near Vega Baja, Puerto Rico.

A third indictment shows an officer tried to distribute small amounts of Tramadol — a Schedule IV controlled substance — and carried a gun while doing so. He was also charged with attempting to sell within 1,000 feet of a school. He could spend up to two decades in jail for the drug charge and life behind bars for the firearm offense.

The final indictment charged another cop with selling a gun and ammunition to a prohibited person, in his case a felon. He could be sentenced to 10 years in prison if convicted.

“I warned him that he is preparing for what was coming”

The testimony of a prosecutor, as well as several documents shown in the continuation of the case brought by former intelligence specialist Francisco J. Reyes Caparros against the local office of the federal prosecutor, seemed to support the claim of the complainant that he was subjected to reprisals and harassment in your work environment. 

During her testimony, assistant prosecutor Carmen Marquez repeatedly stated that on several occasions she had to interact with Reyes Caparros as part of her job and had carried out her work diligently and professionally. 

Márquez said Reyes Caparrós assisted him at a time when he was under threat for 2010, when he was involved in a case related to a criminal organization.

She stated that the main witness in the case was murdered and when she asked to go to the funeral she did not receive support from her superiors, but from Reyes Caparrós, who was then also in charge of security matters. 

“I wanted to pay my respects because she was brave, I had two children, and his parents were there,” said Marquez.

I have added that the head of the local office of the federal prosecutor, Rosa Emilia Rodriguez Velez, and the second in command at the time, prosecutor Maria Dominguez, told him not to go to the funeral.

“Francisco (Reyes) understood the situation. He offered to help me and worked diligently to offer security, “he said.

The prosecutor said he saw the deterioration of Reyes Caparrós’ relationship with his superiors, from the “circle of friends” with offices on the 16th floor, to “falling out of favor” and stopping in a small office next to the elevators two floors below. .

Márquez stressed the controversial episode in which, in a meeting before a hundred people, the prosecutor Rodríguez Vélez referred in a recriminatory way to Reyes Caparrós as “who does not like anyone and nobody wants him”.

She said that after the incident, Reyes Caparrós asked her to talk and eventually she told him that she believed she had a basis to complain about labor discrimination, “and I warned her that she is preparing for what was coming.”

Márquez spoke again with Reyes Caparrós after other incidents, and suggested he continue with his complaint for discrimination, in which he would serve as a witness.

Both received warnings and Reyes Caparrós was transferred to another office.

It should be noted that the prosecutor Márquez currently has a case to be seen in a lawsuit in which she sued the local office of the federal prosecutor for a pattern of revenge and harassment at work.

Márquez won a lawsuit before the federal prosecutors for labor harassment, and as part of the resolution of that lawsuit a federal judge ordered that he be reinstated in his position.

In fact, Marquez’s testimony was repeatedly interrupted by Judge Joseph Laplante, who became exasperated while reiterating to the plaintiff’s attorney, Bamily López, that “this is the case of Mr. Reyes, not Mrs. Márquez.” , and underlined that terms had been agreed for the testimonies of Márquez and Nelson Pérez Sosa, a former appeals supervisor who also takes a case for discrimination against the federal prosecutor’s office and is expected to testify in this case.

In turn, the attorney for the federal prosecutor, Susan M. Poswistilo, tried to show that Márquez’s actions responded to the fact that she was a friend of Reyes Caparrós and wanted to promote complaints about discrimination against the office.

Márquez answered that they were not friends, but that he was a person known as a result of labor relations.

Before the testimony of Marquez, in his final statements the witness Jaqueline Novas, who is executive assistant to Rodriguez Velez, in response to questions from Lopez admitted that several documents showed that at least two prosecutors had not complied with providing Reyes Caparrós with information necessary for his work. of compiling statistics, which another supervisor, prosecutor José Capó, had described as deficient in his testimony days ago.

At the end of the day, María Domínguez sat down to testify, today retired but by then second in command of the federal prosecutor’s office. 

Dominguez answered Lopez’s questions vaguely, claiming not to remember details.

However, when summarizing the subject of an FBI investigation in August 2013, with the intention of Reyes Caparrós to accept a trip with expenses paid to Russia, Domínguez admitted that he had not seen the invitation, although by then it was already of the investigation and had even talked about possible espionage.

Agentes del Negociado Federal de Investigaciones (FBI por sus siglas en inglés) diligencian siete órdenes desde la madrugada del lunes para arrestar a varios agentes de la Policía por cargos de corrupción.

“Estamos ejecutando siete órdenes de arresto contra unos policías por cargos de corrupción”, confirmó el portavoz del FBI en la isla, Carlos Osorio en entrevista radial (WKAQ).

Detalló que los arrestos se llevan a cabo en varios pueblos como Aguas Buenas, Vega Baja, Caguas, Camuy y Bayamón.

“Te voy a dar un ejemplo. Confiscaban dinero, drogas o armas a algún individuo y en vez de entregarlos, solamente entregaban parte y lo demás lo vendían o hacían cualquier otra cosa con eso”, relató Osorio.

La mayoría de los agentes son arrestados por esta modalidad, mientras que algunos fueron detenidos por violación de derechos civiles.

Cerca de las 6:00 de la mañana faltaban dos agentes por arrestar, según dijo Osorio.

La Fiscalía Federal emitirá un comunicado de prensa para ampliar los detalles. Los detenidos serán llevados al Edificio Federal en Hato Rey.

El comisionado interino del Negociado de la Policía de Puerto Rico Henry Escalera, dijo el lunes que el arresto de siete policías por parte del Negociado Federal de Investigaciones (FBI, por sus siglas en inglés) no debe afectar la imagen del cuerpo policíaco.

“El Negociado de la Policía de Puerto Rico condena cualquier acto de corrupción o cualquier ejecutoria que sea contraría a los postulados que juramentaron los oficiales al unirse a nuestro Negociado. Los actos que no representan lo que es el trabajo responsable y respetable de un oficial del orden público deben ser denunciados y procesados por las autoridades. Las acciones de estos individuos de ninguna manera debe manchar la labor responsable de todos los miembros de la Uniformada”, dijo Escalera en declaraciones escritas.

Aseguró que el Negociado encamina un proceso de Reforma Sostenible con el fin de erradicar este tipo de conducta y mejorar la gestión policiaca.

“One had to get to the heart of the matter in the Middle East,” he said.

Mr. Lewis had long propounded his diagnosis of a sick Arab society. In a landmark article in The Atlantic in 1990, “ The Roots of Muslim Rage,” he used the phrase “clash of civilizations” to describe what he saw as inevitable friction between the Islamic world and the modern West. (The political scientist Samuel P. Huntington borrowed the phrase in an influential article of his own in 1993, crediting Mr. Lewis.)

In his article, Mr. Lewis wrote: “Islam has brought comfort and peace of mind to countless millions of men and women. It has given dignity and meaning to drab and impoverished lives. It has taught people of different races to live in brotherhood and people of different creeds to live side by side in reasonable tolerance. It inspired a great civilization in which others besides Muslims lived creative and useful lives and which, by its achievement, enriched the whole world.

“But Islam,” he continued, “like other religions, has also known periods when it inspired in some of its followers a mood of hatred and violence. It is our misfortune that part, though by no means all or even most, of the Muslim world is now going through such a period, and that much, though again not all, of that hatred is directed against us.”

He asserted that Islamic fundamentalism was at war against both secularism and modernism, as represented by the West. Fundamentalists, he wrote, had “given an aim and a form to the otherwise aimless and formless resentment and anger of the Muslim masses at the forces that have devalued their traditional values and loyalties and, in the final analysis, robbed them of their beliefs, their aspirations, their dignity, and to an increasing extent even their livelihood.”

In a speech in 2006, Mr. Cheney noted that in the 1970s, before the Iranian revolution, Mr. Lewis had “studied the writings of an obscure cleric named Khomeini and saw the seeds of a movement that would deliver theocratic despotism.” Supporters of the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini overthrew Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi in 1979.

Critics of Mr. Lewis said he treated Western imperialism, American interventions and Israeli displacement of Palestinians as consequences of the region’s political failures and social backwardness rather than as contributors to them. The political scientist Alan Wolfe called Mr. Lewis’s positions on Islam “belligerent.” The Islamic historian Richard Bulliet suggested that Mr. Lewis looked down on modern Arabs.

“He doesn’t respect them,” Mr. Bulliet said in an interview with Washington Monthly. “He considers them to be good and worthy only to the degree they follow a Western path.”

Trump Demands Inquiry Into Whether Justice Dept. ‘Infiltrated or Surveilled’ His Campaign – The New York Times
 

mikenova shared this story .

WASHINGTON — President Trump on Sunday demanded that the Justice Department investigate whether the department or the F.B.I. “infiltrated or surveilled” his campaign at the behest of the Obama administration, following through on his frequent threats to intervene in the special counsel inquiry as he targets those he views as political enemies.

Mr. Trump made the order on Twitter during a day of public venting about the special counsel investigation, which he charged had turned up no evidence of collusion with Russia and was now casting a worldwide net so that it could harm Republicans’ chances in midterm congressional elections this fall.

But in ordering up a new inquiry, Mr. Trump went beyond his usual tactics of suggesting wrongdoing and political bias by those investigating him, and crossed over into applying overt presidential pressure on the Justice Department to do his bidding, an extraordinary realm where past presidents have hesitated to tread.

“I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes,” Mr. Trump tweeted on Sunday afternoon, “and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!”

Legal experts said such a presidential intervention had little precedent, and could force a clash between the sitting president and his Justice Department that would be reminiscent of the one surrounding Richard M. Nixon during Watergate, when a string of top officials resigned rather than carry out his order to fire a special prosecutor investigating him.

In response to Mr. Trump’s post, the Justice Department asked its internal watchdog, the Office of the Inspector General, to expand its current inquiry into the surveillance of a former Trump campaign official to include the questions raised by the president.

“If anyone did infiltrate or surveil participants in a presidential campaign for inappropriate purposes, we need to know about it and take appropriate action,” Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who is overseeing the Russia inquiry, said in a statement.

By handing the question to the inspector general, Mr. Rosenstein appeared to be trying to thread the needle, giving the president what he said he wanted without fully bowing to his demands.

But it was not clear whether that would satisfy Mr. Trump, who in February complained that it was “disgraceful” for the Justice Department to hand over the surveillance investigation to an inspector general who lacks prosecutorial power, saying it would “take forever” and suggesting that he was “an Obama guy.”

The president’s call came two weeks after he publicly expressed frustration with the Justice Department for failing to give Republican lawmakers documents they are seeking about the basis and findings of the special counsel investigation into whether the Trump campaign worked with the Russians to sway the 2016 election. The president said then that “at some point, I will have no choice but to use the powers granted to the Presidency and get involved!”

That point appeared to be Sunday, close to the first anniversary of the opening of the special counsel investigation, at a time when the president’s frustration about it has reached a fever pitch and he and his allies have ratcheted up their efforts to undercut its credibility. It came as Rudolph W. Giuliani, his private lawyer, said that the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, planned to complete by Sept. 1 his inquiry into whether the president had obstructed justice — an apparent attempt by Mr. Giuliani to publicly pressure the special counsel amid negotiations over whether Mr. Trump will be interviewed in the case.

While most presidents who have faced investigations have responded with increased discretion to avoid being seen as trying to influence the outcome, Mr. Trump has dispensed with any notion that he is not trying to do so. He and his aides have branded the investigation a witch hunt and a hoax, called for an end to it, and tried to set its boundaries, and now the president has ordered a review of how it was handled.

“I can’t think of a prior example of a sitting president ordering the Justice Department to conduct an investigation like this one,” said Stephen I. Vladeck, a professor at the University of Texas School of Law. “That’s little more than a transparent effort to undermine an ongoing investigation.”

If Mr. Trump were to follow through with the demand, Mr. Vladeck added, “it seems to me that the recipients of such an order should resign — and that we’re heading for another Saturday Night Massacre.”

Mr. Trump’s directive prompted speculation that he might be trying to push Mr. Rosenstein out of his job without explicitly firing him, a move the president has frequently considered. Mr. Rosenstein pushed back this month against Republican demands for more visibility into the special counsel’s inquiry, saying his department “is not going to be extorted.”

“This demand puts DAG Rod Rosenstein in a difficult position,” Barbara L. McQuade, a former United States attorney in Michigan, said in a post on Twitter. “He can’t open an investigation based on a political demand, but if he refuses and is fired or resigns, he loses control of the Mueller investigation. Maybe just what Trump wants.”

Among the material Mr. Trump and congressional Republicans are demanding are documents related to an F.B.I. informant who was sent to talk to three Trump campaign aides.

The president alleged on Friday that the informant had been a spy dispatched to infiltrate his campaign for political purposes. In fact, F.B.I. agents sent the informant to contact Mr. Trump’s campaign advisers only after receiving evidence that two of the aides had suspicious contacts linked to Russia.

Mr. Trump began the day railing about the scope of Mr. Mueller’s investigation. In a series of morning tweets that has become a weekend ritual for the president, Mr. Trump pointed to a New York Times report that detailed how the special counsel is examining whether Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates offered help to the Trump campaign, and whether they coordinated with Russia in doing so.

“Things are really getting ridiculous,” Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter. “The Failing and Crooked (but not as Crooked as Hillary Clinton) @nytimes has done a long & boring story indicating that the World’s most expensive Witch Hunt has found nothing on Russia & me so now they are looking at the rest of the World!”

The president did not challenge the accuracy of The Times’s account, which was the first indication that countries other than Russia may have offered assistance to his campaign in the months before the presidential election. But he suggested that the breadth of the inquiry was proof that Mr. Mueller’s investigation was a partisan exercise geared toward harming Republican congressional candidates.

“Now that the Witch Hunt has given up on Russia and is looking at the rest of the World, they should easily be able to take it into the Mid-Term Elections where they can put some hurt on the Republican Party,” Mr. Trump said. “Don’t worry about Dems FISA Abuse, missing Emails or Fraudulent Dossier!”

Mr. Trump was alluding to his contention that a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court warrant that was granted to look at Carter Page, one of his campaign associates, was improperly obtained and based on false information provided by his political opponents, including a dossier that included salacious information about him.

Under pressure from Mr. Trump and his Republican allies in Congress, the Justice Department said in March that it would begin an investigation into the surveillance of Mr. Page. Law enforcement officials had long had concerns that Mr. Page, a former investment banker based in Moscow, was acting as a Russian agent.

But the president has continued to make the allegation that the court-ordered surveillance of Mr. Page was unjustified. Mr. Trump has also continued to claim that the special counsel should be looking not at his campaign, but instead at his 2016 rival, Hillary Clinton.

“At what point does this soon to be $20,000,000 Witch Hunt, composed of 13 Angry and Heavily Conflicted Democrats and two people who have worked for Obama for 8 years, STOP!” Mr. Trump wrote in a pair of tweets. “They have found no Collussion with Russia, No Obstruction, but they aren’t looking at the corruption in the Hillary Clinton Campaign where she deleted 33,000 Emails, got $145,000,000 while Secretary of State, paid McCabes wife $700,000 (and got off the FBI hook along with Terry M) and so much more.”

It was not clear where Mr. Trump’s estimate of the cost of Mr. Mueller’s inquiry came from. The Justice Department reported at the end of last year that the special counsel’s investigation had incurred at least $6.7 million in expenses in its first four and a half months, and Mr. Trump’s own budget allocated $10 million for his office for 2019.

The president has often charged that Mr. Mueller is leading a team of Democratic activists who are out to get him, citing reports that some of his investigators are Democrats who supported Mrs. Clinton. He has also sought to discredit Andrew G. McCabe, the former deputy F.B.I. director, by noting that his wife ran as a Democrat for political office in Virginia with support and campaign donations from Terry McAuliffe, a close Clinton ally.

But Mr. Mueller himself is a Republican, as are several members of his staff, and the investigation is being overseen by Mr. Rosenstein, another Republican, who was Mr. Trump’s own choice to be deputy attorney general.

That did not stop the president from suggesting that the investigation was politically driven and should end.

“Republicans and real Americans should start getting tough on this Scam,” he tweeted on Sunday.

Two other lawsuits against the federal prosecutor’s office
 

mikenova shared this story .

In addition to the case currently being heard in the federal court in which a former employee of the local office of the federal prosecutor’s office alleges to have suffered a pattern of harassment and labor discrimination, there are at least two other similar lawsuits against the federal prosecutor’s office en route to hold their respective judgments soon.

In the current case, former expert Francisco J. Reyes Caparrós, who is a veteran with partial disability now turned into a lawyer, alleges to have been the victim of a pattern of hostility while working in the local office of the federal prosecutor’s office, which included among other things that prevented him from doing the functions for which he had been hired, discredited him, was the object of an unfounded campaign that he could be a Russian spy, implemented disciplinary actions against him, threatened him with negative evaluations, isolated him from other colleagues, and eventually they will highlight him.

Reyes alleges that the hostility against him became such, that he had no choice but to resign, after a failed attempt to reinstate him in his post as intelligence specialist.

For all the damages and situations I have claims to have suffered, the plaintiff claims an amount of $ 390,000 in compensation.

In another lawsuit, the assistant prosecutor Carmen Marquez Marín alleges to be a victim of a pattern of revenge, after prevailing in another previous lawsuit for labor harassment.

Marquez won that trial against the federal prosecutor’s office, and was reinstated in his position in March 2008 by order of a federal judge.

Márquez alleges that, since his reinstatement in his job, which would not have complied with the order of the court to delay the hiring, has been subject to continuous revenge, in a pattern that worsened in recent years after all the complications. of health that required treatment and absences from work.

For the damages I have allegedly suffered, Márquez is asking for compensation of $ 350,000.

Finally, Nelson Pérez Sosa also sued the federal prosecutor’s office, alleging a scheme of revenge, discrimination and hostility that led to his dismissal.

Perez, who headed the appeals division of the federal prosecutor’s office for 21 years, alleges that he was dropped from his position for testifying on behalf of employees who claimed discrimination and revenge. Perez says that he had excellent evaluations of his work, and yet the office’s management, including his boss, the prosecutor Rosa Emilia Rodriguez Velez, decided to lower him from his position. He claims in his lawsuit that there were vengeful actions against him for his open opposition to the discriminatory practices of the office’s management, including refusing to penalize prosecutor Márquez after he suffered from the drugs.

Perez alleges that the hostility has caused a deterioration in his health, which in turn have made it necessary to have undergo treatment for various conditions, such as stress, anxiety and high blood pressure.

For all the damage suffered, Perez asks for compensation of $ 1.2 million.

The Problems With the FBI’s Email Investigation Went… — ProPublica
 

mikenova shared this story from Articles and Investigations – ProPublica.

On Tuesday, when Donald Trump abruptly dismissed the FBI director, James Comey, his administration insisted that he was merely following the recommendation of his attorney general and deputy attorney general, the two most senior officials in the Justice Department.

In a three-page memorandum attached to Comey’s termination letter, the deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, cited concern for the FBI’s “reputation and credibility.” He said that the director had defied Justice Department policies and traditions and overstepped his authority in the way he handled the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

This was a puzzling assertion from the Trump administration, not least because Trump is widely acknowledged to have reaped the benefits of Comey’s actions on Election Day. After the FBI director sent his letter to Congress, on Oct. 28, about the discovery of new Clinton emails and the Bureau’s plans to assess them, Trump praised Comey for his “guts” and called the news “bigger than Watergate.”

In the aftermath of Comey’s firing, Democrats and some Republicans in Congress have proposed a far more credible explanation for Trump’s action, accusing the President of trying to halt the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference in the election and possible collusion with his campaign. Some of those legislators, as well as many critics in the press, have said that Trump has ignited a constitutional crisis, and they called for the appointment of an independent prosecutor to carry out the Russia investigation.

For the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the police intended to enter into a confrontation with protesters during the protests on Tuesday, which caused a “trap” on the Golden Mile just before starting to throw gas.

The executive director of the ACLU in Puerto Rico, William Ramírez, said that they will present these findings to the federal police monitor, Arnaldo Claudio, who will be in charge of overseeing compliance with the reform imposed by the federal court.

“From the beginning we saw the intention of a confrontation,” Ramírez said at a press conference in which he presented some of the instruments used by the police during the protest, such as tear gas. “The streets are public. The police can not prohibit people from going through streets that are public. If they engage in criminal conduct, the police may intervene. My personal appreciation, as a lawyer and as director of the ACLU, is that it was premeditated to create a confrontation. ”

He reiterated that, by definition, the streets are public spaces and places of expression where a permission to demonstrate is not required. This, because one of the reasons given by the secretary of the Department of Public Security, Hector Pesquera, to justify a wall of police prevented the passage through this point of the Golden Mile was to say that it was not part of the negotiations that the demonstration I would go through this road.

He questioned Pesquera’s version that the police withdrew to allow the protesters to move and said that the space they left did not allow the demonstration to circulate, causing the participants to be trapped between the buildings of the Golden Mile.

“Cuando eso ocurre, yo estaba parado precisamente al lado del presidente del Colegio de Abogados, Alejandro Torres, y los dos coincidimos en que era una encerrona. Vimos que los dejaron entrar y se alinearon en las calles laterales. Eso lo que indica es que no los dejaron salir y que algo venía y se lo dije a los observadores. Yo llevo muchos años en esto y he visto esto en muchas ocasiones”, afirmó.

En una conferencia de prensa el martes con el gobernador Ricardo Rosselló, Pesquera rechazó que la intención fuera crear una encerrona y explicó que se le dio espacio a la marcha para que tomara la avenida Roosevelt y seguir por la avenida Luis Muñoz Rivera hasta la tarima. “Pero tenían capuchas, tenían máscaras, habían roto cristales”. Informó que 15 policías sufrieron lesiones, muchas de ellas productos de las piedras lanzadas por varios manifestantes. Incluso, un oficial sufrió una herida en la cabeza víctima de un martillazo.

Reacciona Henry Escalera

En declaraciones escritas, el comisionado de la Policía, Henry Escalera, sostuvo ayer que se reunieron con siete de los ocho grupos y reiteró que los integrantes de “un pequeño grupo que no accedió a la coordinación previa fueron los que lanzaron piedras y objetos a la Uniformada y no accedieron en ese momento a mantener la manifestación de forma segura para todos”.

Por otro lado, las mujeres que sirvieron de observadoras denunciaron ayer que recibieron agresiones de género por parte de policías mientras intentaban hacer su trabajo.

Ramírez denunció además que en un momento dado no lo dejaron pasar hacia su oficina, a pesar de que estaba transitando por una vía pública y que no ocurría ninguna situación de emergencia en ese momento. Los portavoces de la ACLU dijeron que este año se les hizo más difícil conseguir información de la Policía y poder comunicarse con los que estaban al frente en la cadena de mando.

Josué González, abogado de la ACLU, dijo que hubo un “despliegue indiscriminado de fuerza” por parte de la Policía.

“Uno puede decir que hubo piedras de parte y parte, pero lo que eso generó es que personas que estaban participando de la manifestación de forma pacífica fueron agredidos por el despliegue indiscriminado de la fuerza policíaca”, afirmó. “Se ignoraron protocolos básicos y no se hicieron las advertencias antes de lanzar los gases lacrimógenos para notificar la intención de dispersión”.

Juan Camacho, miembro del colectivo Pueblo Unido en Contra de la Venta y Privatización de Servicios Públicos, también respondió a la conferencia de prensa que realizaron Pesquera y Rosselló.

Negó que hubieran acordado con la Policía los lugares en los cuales se manifestarían y dijo que discutirán la posibilidad de llevar las quejas ante el monitor federal. Pidieron las renuncias de Pesquera y del comisionado de la Policía, Henry Escalera.

“They used rubber bullets, used and abused the tear gas that was thrown without the proper warnings,” Camacho said. “There was excessive use of pepper spray against people who had not done anything and, as always, the kidnapping of the detainees that their families then do not know where to go to look for them and bring them a lawyer. We believe that this attitude of the Police has to change drastically. ”

In his statements Rosselló congratulated the police for preventing the escalation of violence to the levels of last year, when there was destruction and acts of vandalism in several buildings in the banking area. “These are people who had a violent intention, they demonstrated that violent intention. They were allowed the space to continue and finish their march, but decided to continue taking violent actions. ” said Rossello.
