UN Condemns Guerrilla Attacks in Colombian Region

first_img On July 14, the representative of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in Colombia, Todd Howland, condemned the harassment of inhabitants of the conflict-ridden department of Cauca (in southwestern Colombia) by the FARC, a communist guerrilla group. “I energetically condemn these attacks that affect civilians,” Howland said in a statement in which he reported on a visit he made Friday to the municipality of Miranda, where clashes between Government forces and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) have taken place. “Although neither my team nor I were wounded, we were witnesses of what is happening to people in this region of the country, and it’s really difficult and very sad to see what these Colombians are suffering,” the representative lamented. Accompanied by other OHCHR delegates, Howland met with organizations of indigenous people and rural workers, as well as with civilian and military authorities, in order to evaluate the human-rights situation in this conflict-ridden area. “During almost the entire mission, I heard shots and explosions. I left the area by a different route from the one by which I entered. I know that the coordinator of the Miranda indigenous guard, Camilo Tarquinas, who accompanied us in several of these places, was wounded in the left leg upon leaving the area,” Howland lamented. Over the last week, in the course of combat in other Cauca municipalities, such as Toribio, Argelia, and Caloto, more than a dozen inhabitants have been wounded, while residences and communications infrastructure have been damaged, and dozens of communities of indigenous people and rural workers have been displaced. At the same time, in the municipality of Jambaló, a Colombian Air Force plane – a Super Tucano manufactured in Brazil – suffered an accident in which its two pilots died. While the guerrilla group claims to have shot down the aircraft, which was conducting operations in the mountainous area, President Juan Manuel Santos and the authorities have dismissed this account. The FARC is Colombia’s leading guerrilla group and has around 9,200 fighters, according to official figures. By Dialogo July 17, 2012last_img read more

Honduran Police Chiefs Undergo Polygraph Test

first_img “All members will endure the process, according to the arranged schedule (…) This is the first step taken to evaluate the Police’s high command of operation,” Eduardo Villanueva, head of the Police Career Investigation and Evaluation Office (DIECP), said on May 6, when the process started. About 50 senior officers of the Honduran Police, including director Juan Carlos “el Tigre” Bonilla, will undergo counter drug and polygraph tests on May 6, during an institutional purging campaign, caused by alleged organized crime infiltration, official sources stated. During the so-called “confidence tests,” the police officers are tested by a polygraph or a lie detector regarding drug consumption, as well as their psychological status. Getting a polygraph test is the quickest and the easiest way to detect deception. It has been used as a pre-employment measure and as in the above case should be used during the entire course of service to continuously test and evaluate the employees for false means of income and drug-testing. Many companies like Lie Detector Test UK are providing specialized services like these in their test packages. Honduras is facing an alarming crime rate, ranking first worldwide with 85.5 per 100,000 inhabitants, according to the Violence Observatory at the National University, nearly ten times the global average. center_img Furthermore, the test also verifies the police officers’ assets to determine if they correspond to their incomes; it also verifies whether any property has been transferred to family members. By Dialogo May 08, 2013 “After concluding this stage, we will continue with 50 more, which involves subordinates and immediate collaborators, so that we can assure society that we have a transparent police force that is doing its job,” DIECP’s chief added. last_img read more

Dave Miley

first_imgDo you remember Dave Miley who was the Cincinnati Reds manager from 2003-2005 where he compiled a 125 win and 164 loss record?  The Tampa native was a catcher by profession.  As a player he was a member of the Cincinnati Reds organization.  After retirement from active playing, he became a coach and manager in the Reds minor league system before moving into the major league managers roll.  He was only in his 40’s when he managed the Cincinnati Reds.Dave Miley’s wife is from the St. Peters area of Franklin County.  He met and married her while a member of the Reds organization.Albert Schneider of Morris was recently in a local nursing home recuperating from knee surgery.  His roommate was Dave Miley’s father-in-law, and Dave and his wife came to visit while both men were in the nursing home.  Albert stated that Dave was very friendly to him during the visit.  I am not sure what Dave Miley is doing at this time.  He is only 52 years old, so I am sure he is still involved somewhere in baseball.  However, I was not able to find out where when I did research for this article.last_img read more
