Lawmakers file criminal complaint against former transport minister

first_imgNo related posts. Lawmakers from the Public Expenditure Commission, including Manrique Oviedo, Patricia Pérez and Walter Céspedes, filed a criminal complaint with the Prosecutors’ Office against former Public Works and Transport Minister Francisco Jiménez and other former officials for alleged embezzlement in the scandal-plagued project to build a road along the San Juan River, along the border with Nicaragua.The complaint includes Carlos Acosta, former director of the National Roadway Council, Manuel Serrano, an engineer responsible for the project, and Manuel Brenes, a legal department official.The three lawmakers said the document filed with judicial authorities “named Jiménez, Acosta and Serrano as the masterminds of government embezzlement” of an undisclosed amount of government funds, as well as other irregularities with the project.Lawmakers also said that after three months of congressional hearings, the legislative commission failed to uncover how much taxpayer money was spent on project, a situation they categorized as “very troubling.”On Tuesday, the Comptroller General’s Office also filed a complaint against Jiménez on charges of influence peddling and fraud.The officials were removed from their jobs last May, when the scandal involving allegations of corruption with contractors became public.

Ties between North Korea Cuba hinted at in route of seized freighter

first_imgRelated posts:Cuba’s Raúl Castro takes a big chance on currency reform Fonseca, Martínez embody new breed of Cuban music Venezuela’s Maduro said to cancel U.S. trip over Cuban plane Cuba marks 60 years since start of communist revolution When law enforcement agents boarded a rusty, aging North Korean freighter making a rare journey down the Panama Canal last week, they had been tipped off that they would find narcotics, Panamanian officials said.Instead, after a violent confrontation with the 35-member crew, they discovered a more unusual cargo hidden in its depths: a cache of Soviet-era weaponry concealed beneath more than 200,000 bags of Cuban brown sugar.The freighter’s detention has thrown a light on the secretive deals North Korea is making, possibly in breach of United Nations sanctions, as it struggles for survival.The voyage of the freighter Chong Chon Gang to Cuba, far from the Chinese waters where it normally operates, is not the first time a ship from the isolated communist country has followed that route.North Korean vessels have made at least seven other trips to Cuba in the past few years, with three stopping at the same two ports as the Chong Chon Gang, according to two organizations that monitor North Korea, the Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control and the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).Several of the freighters were operated or managed by Ocean Maritime Management (OMM) — a North Korea-based company that has links to the country’s government — which is also the registered manager of the detained vessel, according to the Wisconsin Project, which uses ship tracking databases to follow North Korean and other vessels.The journeys, made by ships that normally stay close to the Korean peninsula, are an indication that the Chong Chon Gang’s voyage may have been part of a wider, established trade route, amid an increasingly warm relationship between the two communist nations.In a statement, Cuba said there was a “legitimate contract” for North Korea to repair and then return armaments, which they said included antiaircraft missile systems and two disassembled Mig-21s. The sugar on board was probably intended as payment for the work, according to monitors.In the days before it was seized, the Chong Chon Gang had passed through the Panama Canal and called at two Cuban ports: Havana and Puerto Padre, a major sugar export center, according to the Wisconsin Project.Another vessel, the Oun Chong Nyon Ho, made an almost identical voyage through the canal and to the same two Cuban ports in May 2012. It passed back through the Panamanian waterway without being searched. In May 2009, the North Korean-flagged Mu Du Bong went through the canal and stopped in Havana, Cuba’s capital city. Both are currently managed by OMM, according to the Wisconsin Project.A third ship, the Po Thong Gang, traveled through the canal and called at Puerto Padre in April 2012. During the previous year, it had visited Havana and Santiago de Cuba, according to research by Matthew Godsey of the Wisconsin Project. It was linked to OMM until 2008 and is now registered to a different company at the same address, Godsey said. Hugh Griffiths, a maritime arms trafficking expert based at SIPRI, said his monitoring database has recorded two further North Korean-linked ships that have docked in Cuba in the past 18 months. Two of the trips stopped at both Havana and Puerto Padre, the two Cuban ports visited by the Chong Chon Gang and the Oun Chong Nyon Ho, he said.Griffiths said there was a “definite possibility” that other ships had made the journey from North Korea to Cuba undetected by registering under false ownership or by turning off on-board satellite transponders to avoid being tracked, as the Chong Chon Gang appears to have done.The OMM company is registered to a P.O. box number in the North Korean capital and has 17 ships that largely ply their trade in the waters around China. Gary Li, a senior analyst at IHS Maritime, a consultancy firm, described it as the biggest state-owned shipping company in North Korea.“It claims to have shipping agents in all the major [North Korean] ports as well as overseas, such as Dalian in China, Port Said in Egypt and Vladivostok in Russia,” he said.OMM also owns a crew-training center and the Ryongnam Dockyard on North Korea’s west coast, which has reportedly been involved in the construction of military vessels, he said. OMM is also responsible for handling passport applications for all North Korean sailors.Li said the Chong Chon Gang’s detention and voyages by other ships owned by OMM demonstrates that “some kind of ‘trade route’ no matter how slight, has been established between [North Korea] and Cuba.”John Park, an expert on North Korea and associate at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, said that the Chong Chon Gang’s voyage would not have been a “freelance-type transaction” but would have been part of a “broader revenue generation effort to essentially make money for the regime.”Park said only the military was capable of carrying out repair work on the Cuban armaments, adding, “Given the contents of the consignment, it looks like it is a North Korean military-linked state trading company.”Calls to the company’s listed phone number were disconnected a few seconds after being answered.“The relationship between [North Korea] and Cuba is a lot closer than it used to be,” said Michael Madden, editor of the North Korea Leadership Watch. “There’s been a lot more contact and interactions between senior Cuban officials and senior North Korean officials in recent years.”Jeffrey Lewis, director of the East Asia nonproliferation program at the Monterey Institute of International Studies, said the interception in Panama is unlikely to disrupt those ties and North Korea would look for a new route. Repairing old weapons is one of the “few things that North Korea is good at,” he said. “I don’t think the North Koreans are going to give that up.”© 2013, The Washington Post Facebook Commentscenter_img North Korean vessel Chong Chong Gang sits at Manzanillo harbor in Colón, 90 km from Panama City on July 9, 2013.

Fewer sick days granted during 2014 World Cup after stricter regulations enforced

first_imgThe country’s Social Security System, or Caja, told doctors torestrict permission for sick days throughout the month-long World Cup. The directive had positive results: Doctor’s notes granted during the past 30 days fell significantly compared to those registered during the 2010 tournament.Four years ago, during the South Africa World Cup, Caja hospitals registered 87,359 people given sick leave. This year, 58,580 people received sick leave — a drop of 28,779 requests granted despite Costa Rica’s success in the Brazil-hosted tournament. Costa Rica’s national team failed to qualify for the tournament in 2010.Sick days during the 2010 World Cup cost the public health system ₡3.4 billion ($6.1 million). That figure dropped to ₡1.8 billion ($3.4 million) this year.Rodrigo Bartels Rodríguez, who leads a Caja commission in charge of evaluating sick days granted, explained that the agency has made ​​several efforts to reduce the number of sick notes granted in the past month.The doctor said that stricter regulations, which went into effect on May 30, helped reduce the number of “sick days” taken during the World Cup.In addition to more stringent rules, the Caja implemented a system that allows better oversight over sick leave permits issued. The reports now include a doctor’s name, the diagnosis, an address, treatment costs and other information.New regulations also grant employers the authorization to annul sick leave if there is enough evidence that it was obtained in a deceptive manner.Doctors found guilty of issuing permits based on false diagnoses may be prosecuted. They can face sanctions from the Costa Rican Doctors and Surgeons Association, including the revocation of their license.Provisions also stipulate that people taking sick days are forbidden to attend any public event or to travel abroad unless the purpose of the trip is to undergo medical treatment.

Government tables draft bills aimed at approving fiscal reforms

first_imgPresident Luis Guillermo Solís will table a series of draft bills at the Legislative Assembly designed to increase government income and curb the country’s fiscal deficit,Casa Presidencial officials have announced.Vice President and Finance Minister Helio Fallas and Presidency Minister Sergio Alfaro said at a press conference on Thursday that the Executive Branch will withdraw from the prioritary list of the Legislative Assembly four bills proposing tax reforms and measures to cut public sector spending.“The four bills are at a stalemate. There is absolute no progress and therefore we will table them on Monday,” Alfaro said.Fallas said that Finance Ministry officials on Friday sent the Legislative Assembly new drafts, mostly focused on modifications to the country’s Sales Tax and Income Tax.President Luis Guillermo Solís denied that the decision to table the bills was prompted by fears of the calls for a national strike that public sector unions made for next month.“We’re not bowing down before anyone here… The bills were not viable. That’s the only reason why we’re tabling them,” Solís told reporters at a public event on Friday.Vice President Fallas said that the government’s goal is to reach consensus to move forward with new draft bills they will submit to the Legislative Assembly on Feb 2.Urgent reformsProposals to approve tax and public spending reforms have been stranded in the Legislative Assembly for almost two years.Delays on the approval of these reforms already had consequences for Costa Rica. Credit ratings agency Fitch Ratings earlier this month downgraded Costa Rica’s Long-Term currency bonds to ‘BB’ from ‘BB+’. The country’s outlooks also were revised to Stable from Negative.The agency attributed the change to the country’s deteriorating debt dynamics “driven by large fiscal deficits and continued institutional gridlock preventing progress on reforms to correct fiscal imbalances.”On Friday Fitch also downgraded Long-Term Issuer Default Ratings for six banks operating here. Four of them are state-owned banks: Banco Nacional de Costa Rica, Banco de Costa Rica, Banco Popular and Banco Internacional de Costa Rica. Two are private banks: BAC San José and Davivienda.Fallas said that other ratings agencies and international organizations are scheduled to visit the country in the next two months to evaluate progress on the fiscal reforms.“It would be very dangerous for the stability of our country to continue receiving lower ratings,” he said.Unions call off strikeAmong the bills the government tabled was one that aims to eliminate a series of extra-salary bonuses and benefits paid only to public-sector employees.The decision prompted leaders of BUSSCO and Colectivo Sindical Patria Justa, two umbrella groups that bring together over 100 workers’ unions and groups, to call off a strike scheduled for Feb. 6.Unions leaders at a press conference on Friday confirmed they agreed to call off the strike following the government’s decision to remove bill #19,506 from the Legislative Assembly’s agenda.BUSSCO coordinator Gilberto Cascante said the decision was “a triumph for the working class,” but noted that “they will keep up the fight until all similar bills are finally withdrawn from the Assembly.”The strike would have also affected classes at all public schools in the country, scheduled to begin that same day.Private sector: Irresponsible decisionLeaders from private-sector chambers and groups lashed out after the government’s announcement and accused the administration of President Solís of having double standards.The Costa Rican Union of Private-Sector Chambers and Associations (UCCAEP) on Friday called the government’s decision “irresponsible and incongruous.”UCCAEP temporary President Víctor Ruiz said that the administration of President Solís, “from its very beginning, has minimized the importance of passing the fiscal reforms.”Ruiz said that just over a year ago Vice President Fallas sent UCCAEP a letter saying that the country’s fiscal situation is critical and that it required urgent action.“But now they contradict themselves, showing poor political management,” he said.Opposition to the government’s fiscal plan also comes from lawmakers from all parties, even Solís’ Citizen Action Party.A group of 22 legislators last year signed a public letter saying that they would not support any proposal to create or increase taxes until the government pledges to reduce public spending, particularly extra-salary bonuses and benefits.Fiscal planPresident Solís’ initial plan included a series of reforms including turning the 13 percent Sales Tax into a Value-Added Tax (IVA) of 15 percent.The plan also proposed increasing the number of products and services that would be taxed. Among others, it sought to collect taxes on tourism services, self-employed professionals, property rentals, gyms, and other services that currently are tax-exempt.Another initiative proposed taxing private health and private education services with a special 4 percent IVA.It would also have raised, by 1 percent, the Selective Consumption Tax charged on non-essential goods such as liquors, cigarettes and new vehicles, among others.The plan’s goal was to collect ₡400 billion (some $713 million), equivalent to 2 percent of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).The government now will aim at collecting some 0.6 percent of GDP, Fallas said.“The key is to modernize the IVA and introduce new elements that will allow us face the challenges that the new digital economy generates,” he said.The vice president called on Legislative Assembly President José Alberto Alfaro and top lawmakers from all parties to weigh in on the government’s new plan and submit feedback by next Thursday.

Tax break for young couples buying land for first home

first_imgThe government has submitted to parliament a draft bill indirectly exempting from payment of 19 per cent VAT young couples who buy land for the purpose of building a primary residence.The issue is related to the passage of a law last November imposing 19 per cent VAT on building land.In its wake, persons buying a finished housing unit or apartment as their primary dwelling must pay 5 per cent VAT, whereas purchasing a plot of land for owner-occupied housing incurs a 19 per cent VAT charge.Now, the new bill provides that, whereas newlyweds buying land for owner-occupied housing will pay the full tax rate, 14 per cent of the VAT imposed on the value of the land would be returned to them in the form of a grant, so that ultimately they pay only 5 per cent VAT.Lawmakers meanwhile have tabled a legislative proposal aiming to eliminate a distortion where certain buyers of real estate must pay property transfer fees while others do not.The bill was tabled by Disy MP Averof Neophytou.When a person buys a new property and pays VAT on it, he or she is not subject to transfer fees, whereas transfer fees do apply when the transaction involves a land lease.To end the distortion in the market, the proposal provides for the non-payment of transfer fees for rentals or leases of immovable property when the persons involved already pay VAT on taxable business activity.But not all MPs are on board with the proposal, which was discussed during a closed-doors session of the House finance committee.The Greens’ George Perdikis said his party would never consent to an arrangement letting developers “off the hook.”Whereas the lease option might benefit entrepreneurship – by eliminating transfer fees – this should not be done at the expense of state revenues, he said.“There is a large discussion going on about leases in which the church is involved, and we shall under no circumstances agree to the state taking a hit in order to serve the interests of a businessman, whoever he or she may be.”After the VAT on building land was passed late last year, parliament brought regulations specifying which type of development would be subject to the tax.Protected zones and farming land were exempted. You May LikeBukisaAdorable Dog Breeds Rarely Seen By PeopleBukisaUndorem12 Home Remedies for Getting Rid of a Stuffy NoseremUndoActivlyThere’s Something Hidden Behind Mount RushmoreActivlyUndo Two days of music to dance toUndoTwo of serial killer’s victims buried in PhilippinesUndoData is the new oil so watch out for mass mining – Netflix filmUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

since an intervention by Riyadh and its allies in March 2015 in support of a rebel government in the south of the country Las Vegas: As he gets set to face undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather in their multi-million dollar bout on Saturday in Las Vegas much is being made of Conor McGregor’s lack of pro boxing experience but it may turn out to be his greatest strength Mayweather has faced 49 boxers and beaten them all – 49 men who have studied the craft for years and years and yet none of them could find a way through his submarine-tight defence and stinging attack Conor McGregor knocked out Eddie Alvarez in 2nd round at UFC 205 Image Courtesy: Twitter @TheNotoriousMMA But even though he has little by way of experience McGregor — and in particular his left hand — still poses a huge danger to Mayweather’s proud unbeaten record Despite the fact that he is about to become the best-paid boxing debutant in history McGregor who started boxing as a boy before making the switch to mixed martial arts has never had a top-level encounter as a boxer That is not to say that he is a complete novice when it comes to the “sweet science” as boxing aficionados love to call their sport Mixed martial arts is exactly that – a cocktail of combat disciplines with whoever manages to mix up the most potent brew from their striking and grappling skills coming out on top in what can be brutal gruelling encounters McGregor’s striking is second to none and his devastating left hand has powered his ascent to the top of the Ultimate Fighting Championship where he became the first fighter to hold two belts simultaneously He showed his knockout power when decking Jose Aldo after 13 seconds to win the featherweight belt and it was his laser precision in a flurry of four punches that sent Eddie Alvarez crashing down as he won the lightweight crown last year His movement is also mesmerizing – quick on his feet his head bobbing slightly but constantly as he seeks new angles of attack Always meticulous in his preparations it is unlikely that Mayweather has ever faced a southpaw with McGregor’s power and style of movement before and unlike his previous 49 opponents there is little or no footage of McGregor sparring for him to study There are question marks over McGregor’s endurance following his submission loss to Nate Diaz in 2016 where he emptied the gas tank looking for a big knockout and ended up putty in the hands of the rangy Californian Together with his head coach John Kavanagh and his vastly knowledgeable striking coach Owen Roddy McGregor has been working to ensure that he can last the distance over 12 rounds of boxing McGregor can fight going forward or choose to sit back and counter-punch but it is highly unlikely that Mayweather will seek to take the fight to his taller opponent meaning the Irishman will have to take the initiative That means cutting off the ring and chasing down the elusive 40-year-old American if he is to have any chance of delivering on his promise of a knockout blow from his eight-ounce gloves within two rounds Written by Rashmi Rajput Rohit Alok | Mumbai | Published: January 6 2016 2:11 am Mumbai: Chintan Upadhyay husband of Hema Upadhyay (Source: PTI) Related News CITING MEMORY LOSS artist Chintan Upadhyay dodged tough questions thrown by investigators trying to ascertain his role in the double murder of his estranged wife Hema and her counsel Harish Bhambhani sources claim Tired of vague responses and constant contradictions the Mumbai Police decided to move an application to subject Chintan to a narco analysis test The application for conducting the scientific test is scheduled to be heard on January 8 by a local court “Chintan kept on changing his statements and was never consistent Whenever we questioned him on anything related to the murder he used to give different versions and when we confronted him with specific details and asked pinpointed questions he used to cite memory loss and give an alibi that he could not recall as he suffered from memory loss” a senior officer told The Indian Express “This is one of the reasons why we want him to undergo a narco test” added the source Bodies of artist Upadhyay and her lawyer Harish Bhambhani were found wrapped in plastic sheet in cardboard cartons dumped in a sewer in Kandivali on December 12 Five persons have been arrested in connection with the double murder The police are on a lookout for two persons including Vidyadhar and a ‘mediator’ whose identity has not been revealed Meanwhile Chintan’s father Vidyasagar whose statement was recorded last week has told the investigators that Vidyadhar visited their Jaipur home in the first week of December along with co-accused Pradeep Rajbhar whom he had met for the first time While Vidyasagar expressed surprise on the unscheduled visit of Vidyadhar police sources say the visit was a part of the plan to acquaint Pradeep with Chintan’s home so as to project him as his servant to Hema According to sources as a part of the plan which was hatched in August last year Hema was lured by Vidyadhar with the promise of a video clip by a ‘disgruntled servant’ who is now identified as Pradeep Hema was made to believe that the video shot by Pradeep showed Chintan with three women and could be used as an evidence in her ongoing divorce case “In order to ensure that Hema doesn’t doubt Pradeep Chintan ordered Vidyadhar to take Pradeep to Rajasthan and show him his place Vidyadhar followed the orders and took Pradeep along with him in December first week This was decided while the plan was hatched in August between Chintan and Vidyadhar This was revealed by the co-accused during their interrogation” added the sources Sources claim that they also have electronic evidence in the form of the Call Data Record (CDR)s which show that Chintan got in touch with Vidyadhar in August and since then numerous calls have been exchanged between the two “When Chintan’s father quizzed Vidyadhar on his visit he said that he had returned from Kota and was visiting Jaipur for business opportunities and therefore decided to drop by While Vidyasagar has said that Vidyadhar visited their home for 10 minutes Vidyadhar’s CDR shows that he was at their residence for over an hour” added the official “During the interrogation Pradeep confessed that he was told to act as a servant who worked at Chintan’s Jaipur residence and was ill -treated and therefore made a video that would help Hema in her case In actuality Pradeep worked with Vidyadhar” the source further added The CDR of Hema confirms that there were at least three calls exchanges between her and Pradeep on the day she was murdered The CDR will act as an evidence to prove the police’s case on the point of the bait created in the form of the ‘video clip’ by Chintan to lure Hema so that he visited Vidyadhar’s studio in Kandivali where the plan to murder both Hema and her counsel was hatched The police have recorded the statement of the Bangalore-based artist from whom the chloroform used to murder the duo was procured “We had tracked down the Bangalore manufacturer of the chemical who then led us to the artist and we have recorded his statement In his statement the artist has told that he had purchased chloroform for Vidyadhar for his assignment” explained the source Meanwhile a manhunt is on to locate Vidyadhar who is still on the run “He was last tracked to a city in Southern India when he made a call to an artist seeking help He however managed to escape and we are still on a lookout for him He still remains the central character to answer many questions” added the source mumbainewsline@expressindiacom For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI

China?should be accountable. Equallycitizens want their day-to-day grievances related to the government addressed in an effectivetime-bound manner Recent events have undoubtedly put these two issues at the centre of public debateand forced the political class to pay attention Nowhoweveris the time for reasoned debate A rational solution needs to be evolved to address these challenges As the Parliament debates the Lokpal billwe very strongly believe that two principles must inform all discussions on the matter Firsttoo much power and responsibility must not be concentrated in any one institution power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely The corruption we see today is a result of unaccountable and unchecked power Thereforethe institution set up to tackle corruption must itself have a proper system of checks and balancesto ensure that it is accountable to the people of the country Rather than setting up a single super-institution which deals with all problems corruption at high levelscorruption in the middle- and lower-level bureaucracyjudicial corruption and public grievances multiple institutionsadequately empoweredmust be set up to look into each of these issues Secondexisting institutions and laws must be strengthened to enable them to tackle corruption effectivelyand to protect those who blow the whistle on corrupt practices If democratic institutions falter or weakenthere is no alternative to repairing and strengthening them Failure to address the problems in existing structures will result in transferring the same problems into any new institution that may be set up In our viewan Anti-Corruption Lokpalequipped and empowered to deal with big-ticket corruption at the state and the central levelcovering all elected representatives (including the prime ministerbut with certain safeguards)senior bureaucrats and all co-accused is critically required This body would investigate and prosecute everyone involved in large scams like the 2GCWGTaj Corridor and Adarsh affairs that rocked the nation in recent times For mid-level and lower bureaucracythe existing institution of the Central Vigilance Commission must be empowered to effectively deal with all cases of corruption This would entail removing bottlenecks like the single directive and the lack of adequate resources which have so far impeded its effective functioning Parallel state vigilance commissions at the state level would also have to be set up The judiciary must be made accountable to an independentautonomous institution The Constitution provides for the independence of the judiciary What is neededin our opinionis an independent National Judicial Commission to look into all cases of corruption and misconduct related to the judiciary at all levels from the lower judiciary to judges of the Supreme Court The Judicial Accountability and Standards Billcurrently with the parliamentary standing committeeneeds to be substantially amended and strengthened to ensure its effectiveness Whistleblowers must be offered protection under all these institutions through an effective Whistleblowers Protection bill This can be achieved by suitably amending and strengthening the public interest disclosure bill currently before Parliament One issue that impacts every citizen of this country is the lack of an effective mechanism to deal with everyday grievances non-receipt of pensionspoor delivery of rationsbroken roadsnon-availability of adequate waterpoor sanitation and drainage etc Effective grievance redress requires a decentralised systemequipped to deal with grievances in a time-bound manner There is an urgent need to draw on successful grievance redress mechanisms where they exist (like in NREGA) and evolve an appropriate legislation to set up an independent institution empowered to effectively redress public grievances India is a huge countryand the problems we seek to address are complex No single quick-fix legislationno single all-powerful institution is likely to deliver us the cleanvibrantparticipatory democracy to which we aspire A well-thought outconsidered and informed solutionin line with the basic structure of our Constitutionwill have to be evolved through a process of public consultation and debate Parliament too cannot take any shortcuts It has to provide a genuine platform for discussion in line with its constitutional role It has to invite comments from across the country before passing the legislation India Against Corruptions lack of faith and belief in the parliamentary process may be an expression of angst against its ineffectiveness But to bypass it would be self-defeating for the people of India Our experience with the Right to Information and NREGA legislations shows that the standing committee can be an extremely useful platformwhere the legislations can be discusseddebated and strengthened The RTI bill which was introduced in Parliament was an extremely watered-down and weak version of what civil society activists had drafted and proposed Howevergroups from all over the countryincluding the NCPRIpetitioned the parliamentary standing committeeand debated the legislation clause by clause EventuallyParliament took on board most of the suggestions of the standing committee and finally made 153 amendments to the billpassing one of the most progressive right to information access legislations across the world The movement which finally led to the passage of the RTI Actprovides an insightful example of how civil society can agitate and work towards a
