Panama Intercepts Vessel Packed with Cocaine in Joint Operation with United States

first_img“CBP Air and Marine Operations agents are truly the best of the best and work in concert with international and interagency partners to disrupt the flow of illicit trafficking destined for the United States,” said Director of National Air Security Operations Center, Jacksonville Robert Blanchard. “CBP Air and Marine Operations will continue defending our nation’s borders against all manner of threats.” The P-3 aircrew supporting the operation is based at CBP Air and Marine Operation’s National Air Security Operations Center in Jacksonville, Florida which recently completed its most successful counter narcotics operational year since its inception in 1999. In Fiscal Year 2015, Air and Marine Operation’s aircrews contributed to 198 seizure, disruption, or interdiction events in the transit zone resulting in the interdiction of 206,844 pounds of cocaine. On March 8th, CBP Air and Marine Operations agents aboard a CBP P-3 detected a suspicious vessel in international waters and relayed actionable information to Joint Interagency Task Force South (JIATF-South) partners operating in the area. Panamanian authorities intercepted the vessel, recovered the drugs and arrested two suspected drug smugglers. Operation Martillo is an international operation focused on sharing information and bringing together air, land, and maritime assets from the U.S. Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, and Western hemisphere and European partner nation agencies. U.S. military participation is led by Joint Interagency Task Force South, a component of U.S. Southern Command. Operation Martillo is one component in the United States government’s whole-of-government approach to countering the use of the Central American littorals as transshipment routes for illicit trafficking. By Dialogo March 16, 2016 U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Air and Marine Operations (AMO) aircrews detected a vessel carrying more than 1,200 pounds of cocaine in the Caribbean Sea as part of a targeted anti-drug effort in the region. The drugs have an estimated wholesale value of more than $16 million. CBP Air and Marine Operations P-3 aircrews from Jacksonville, Florida, and Corpus Christi, Texas are the leading provider of airborne maritime radar surveillance to Joint Interagency Task Force South operations throughout the Americas and have been an integral part of joint successful counter-narcotic missions targeting illicit smuggling operations, weapons and human smuggling in the hemisphere. I think it’s sad that, instead of collaborating with this control, we in Venezuela are in reality seen as collaborators of drug trafficking because we are controlled and governed by an administration of all corrupt politicians and drug traffickers These news make me glad…Anti-Narcotics…Especially given the Mutual Collaboration of Neighboring Countries…which shows Us that A good Union of Officials,…Loyal,…Prepared,… and having good Logistics….can Throw these Bastardly Drug-Trafficking Societies in the Trash…. applause excellent work, they should come here to Venezuela UNFETTERED WAR AGAINST THIS ABOMINABLE CRIME OF DRUGS, I WOULD APPLY CAPITAL PUNISHMENT The cooperation between governments to counteract drug trafficking is good. Good morning, God bless you. Excellent work given the outcome and the transparency of the operations. Recommendable, increase the search radius over costal areas of Venezuela-Guyana-Brazil. Much success. Congratulations to this intelligence network, to put an end to drug trafficking. I congratulate all the anti-drug agencies in the world for fighting against this world wide nightmare which destroys our society I would like to learn more about the subject and how to combat drug trafficking Aya, I hope these small planes are not used for the opposite, because there is already a powerful, clandestine mafia army that intends to control all of South America, where coca, opium, marijuana, san pedro, ayahuasca and other numbing lianas grow. This fight grows more and more and billions of dollars are invested to exterminate it, but it will never be completely eradicated, that is almost impossible, given that both good and evil will be energetic memories in perpetual opposition. Faced with this powerful truth, the best way to control both omnipresent and opposing memories would be to legalize the manufacture and sale of weapons and alkaloids all over the world, fully knowing and broadcasting the causes and the effects of this major social issue, which, by leaving them to their own devices, democracy and world peace will certainly increase, in contrast, violence and irrational, premature death will be reduced to nothing without any doubt. A big hug to all, OK. Hmmm let’s see about Nicaragua when they donate one or better yet let El Chapo go free and send him to that country Just like all other reports on drug seizures, short, no depth.According to an online report, a judge released the 5 accused who were caught in the act, in the Dominican Republic.I don’t believe there are articles in the laws that, for as many benefits as they give, would allow that. Article that does not reveal the nationality of the ship carrying the drugs, it just reports that Panama collaborated with the U.S…………………………………. In light of the decision made by a Dominican judge who released some Venezuelan traffickers caught in the act, all these anti-narcotic efforts are in vain. Such is the reason the dead, lying, cheating Hugo Chávez Frías, cut ties with the DEA, because they could avoid the huge trafficking of drugs thanks to advanced technology for the fight against drug trafficking. It is shameful that today, we are the bridge country for drug traffickers. So why don’t they work with the Venezuelan authorities on this matter? Is it because they don’t trust that the product might come from the “Los Soles Cartel” and the operation could fail? Bravo Hi it’s great they’re fighting this activity, but when are we going to hear about big American drug sellers falling, just the foreigners is not valid either I request through this means of communication to receive reports concerning this renowned digital magazine.I would like to subscribe,Best regards,Cicero Romão de Araujo Really good, but here in Venezuela we aspire to have all these criminals also fall and pay and to be able to bring the stolen money back to our country there we have Diosdado heading the list Cilia Flores Elisami and an untold number of those criminals help us for the love of God I support this initiative. Congratulations to the members of the counter drug trafficking task force I am very interested Good Yadira Mendez Registry:BA-16-10070The Costa Rican National Coastguard Service and Southcomm of the United States, strengthen the connection in the fight against drug trafficking, building bases and the financing by the United States of new police posts.Costa Rica donated the necessary land for the facilities which will be built by U.S. engineers in collaboration with a private company. It is expected to be done by 2017. Being informed is important in these new times and with your newsite it’s marvelous Glory to God Praying, praying, the chains are brokenPraying, Praying, life is renewed To show a button it is not in any way of interest to legalize or stop fighting in any country against every kind of evil since for instance some of their population is not heard from except as a cry and life has been affected in many ways and this country has been challenged because of its sin and the corruption of its leaders and statesmen and Ay when the population’s cry reaches heaven Very good USA Enough. They need to put an end to drugs. Excellent The optimism is very good and the information on everything going on around us great guc I like you a lot very interesting thank you for informing melast_img read more

DIEDRICH LAND OCCUPATION LEFT IN LIMBO AUTHORITY OF JUDICIAL POWER UNDERMINED

first_imgFurthermore, section 132 of the Constitution empowers the high courtwith original jurisdiction “to hear and determine all criminalproceedings” with the exception of proceedings for which the SupremeCourt has exclusive jurisdiction.On 2 October 2012, the high court entered judgment in favour of BerndGeorg Diedrich in his seven year civil suit. In his judgment, the highcourt judge declared that Mr. Diedrich is the rightful owner of thesuitland and that all transfers and allocations of land to thedefendants are null and void. The court ordered that the defendants beevicted from the suitland and granted “a perpetual injunctionrestraining the defendants from entering in, interfering with orbuilding on, developing or in any way interfering with the suitland.”However, according to Mr. Diedrich, on 23 December 2014, someofficials of physical planning department accompanied with about adozen fully armed PIU personnel ordered him to vacate the landdeclared by the court to be his own. The permanent secretary, ministryof lands indicated that this was the consequence of an executive orderand declined to make any further comment.Needless to say, the position of the Constitution on such matters isquite explicit. According to section 120 subsection (3) of theConstitution: “The Government and all departments and agencies of theGovernment shall accord such assistance to the courts as the courtsmay reasonably require to protect their independence, dignity andeffectiveness.”In short, what the president, ministers, permanent secretaries,department heads and police ought to do is to assist the courts inexecuting their orders not undermining the authority of the courts.In a democracy, it is the rule of law which prevails while in atyranny the rule of might takes sway. What Gambians cherish is to livein liberty, dignity and prosperity and which calls for democracy.It goes without saying that a leader has no moral authority to protestagainst oppression and exploitation by outside powers while injusticecontinues to prevail in his/her country.]]>last_img read more
