Ex-Brazil President Lula sentenced to nearly 10 years for corruption

BRASILIA: Former Brazilian leader Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, the main candidate in next year’s presidential election, was sentenced Wednesday to corruption charges and sentenced to nearly 10 years in prison.

The decision marked an impressive fall from Lula, one of the most popular politicians in the country, and a sharp blow to his chances of return policy. The former labor leader who was praised globally for policies to reduce persistent inequalities in Brazil, faces four more corruption trials and will remain free on appeal.

The verdict represents the most important sentence however, in a corruption investigation for more than three years, shook Brazil, revealing a large graft system for the next level of business and government.

Sergio Moro The judge considered Lula, 71, guilty of accepting 3.7 million reais (1.2 million dollars) in bribes from the engineering company OEA SA, in the amount of money lawyers that the company spent the renovation From a beach apartment to Lula in exchange for his help to win contracts with state oil company Petroleo Brasileiro.

Federal prosecutors have accused Lula, the first president of the Brazilian working class 2003-2011, to propose a long anti-corruption bill that was discovered in a Petrobras counter-rebound investigation.

Lula’s legal team said in an e-mailed statement that he was innocent and would appeal.

“For more than three years, Lula has had an investigation for political reasons,” they wrote. “No credible evidence of guilt has occurred, and overwhelming evidence of his innocence was ignored.”

Lula’s lawyer, Cristiano Martins, has repeatedly accused Judge Moro of bias against his client, which Moro firmly denies.
Moro wrote in his decision that “he had no personal satisfaction in this conviction, on the contrary.”

“It is unfortunate that a president can be criminally convicted,” Moro said. “No matter their size, no one is above the law.”

The Brazilian real has increased earnings after the decision and reached its highest level in two months. The benchmark Bovespa stock market hit a session high. Investors fear that another Lula would mean a return to more state-oriented and less business-friendly economic policy.

“Food leaves empty”
Lula would be barred from his position if his conviction is upheld by an appellate court, which will take at least eight months to decide.

If he can not run, political analysts say that he left Brazil would be thrown into disorder, forced to rebuild and find a leader capable of emerging from the long shadow that Lula launched into Brazilian politics for three decades.

“Lula’s absence opens an open hole in the political scene, creating a huge power vacuum on the left,” said Claudio Couto, a political scientist at the Getulio Vargas Foundation, one of the best universities.

“We came to a situation of extreme political tension, even beyond the chaos we experienced last year.”

Couto said he hoped Lula’s verdict of guilty was upheld by the appellate court. This would leave the presidential race open for 2018 and increase the chances of a victory by an independent politician, as the best-known competitors are also taken into account in corruption investigations in Brazil.

Explosion
The two terms of Lula were marked by a merchant boom that momentarily made Brazil one of the most dynamic economies in the world. Its ambitious foreign policy, the alignment of Brazil with other large developing countries, has raised the profile of the country on the world stage.

China under pressure to free ailing Nobel laureate

China under pressure to free ailing Nobel laureate

Shenyang, China has experienced sustained international pressure on Thursday for Nobel laureate to fight cancer Liu Xiaobo requires overseas treatment as official updates hospitals suggest that the democracy advocate is close to death.

The United States and Germany have expressed concern over the 61-year-old writer after the hospital he attended yesterday said he had organic insufficiency and difficulty breathing.
Doctors said Liu would be artificial ventilation to stay alive, but the family refused, according to the First Hospital of the Chinese Medicine University in Shenyang City, northeast of the country.

Human rights groups have denounced the lack of independent reports on Liu’s health, accusing authorities of manipulating information from the hospital’s heavily guarded website was the only source of medical changes.

Authorities do not say where Liu is treated, but at least five police officers monitored the hospital’s oncology floor on Thursday tracking access to the unit. Several others were also seen inside and outside the building.

Liu, who was sentenced to 11 years in jail for “subversion” in 2009, entered the hospital earlier this month after being transferred from prison because of the late stage of liver cancer.

His wife, the poetess Liu Xia, has been at his side, but his ability to communicate with the outside world is restricted. Authorities have been under house arrest since 2010.

“We are still concerned that Mr. Liu and his family are unable to communicate with the outside world and that he is not free to seek medical treatment of his choice,” White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday.

German government spokeswoman Steffen Seibert said that Berlin “is prepared to receive and medically” deal.

The latest health updates “raises the question of whether M. Liu’s cancer would have been diagnosed and treated earlier,” said Seibert.

Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen also called on Beijing to release Liu and reiterated his offer to have treated Liu on the autonomous island that China considers a distant province.

The Chinese government has rejected international requests to leave Liu treatment abroad, saying that it receives the best possible high-level care from domestic doctors and that other countries should not “be interested in China’s internal affairs.”

A German doctor and an American doctor Liu visited last week and said he was still strong enough to satisfy his desire to travel abroad, but the hospital has issued increasingly pessimistic reports every day since.

Liu could become the first Nobel Peace Prize winner to die in custody from the German pacifist Carl von Ossietzky, who died in a hospital under the Nazis in 1938.

North Korea Calls for Execution of South Korean Ex-President and Aide

North Korea Calls for Execution of South Korean Ex-President and Aide

Seoul, South Korea – North Korea issued on Wednesday standing orders for the implementation of the “miserable dog death” of the former president imprisoned in South Korea and his intelligence chief, and demanded that his opponent south of the extruded product improvisable.

Execution orders, which are said to be the North, could be executed anytime, anywhere and by any means, constituted an assassination order against the imprisoned former president, Park Geun-hye, and Lee Byung ho, who was The director of the National Intelligence Service under the direction of Mrs. Park.

Transferred to a statement released by the official North Korean news agency, execution orders came almost two months after the isolated and nuclear country has accused South Korea’s intelligence services of conspiring with the CIA to Assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, the use of biochemical poisons.

“We declare at home and abroad that we will impose the death penalty on the traitor, Park Geun-hye and M. Lee,” said the statement from the Secretary of State for Security of the North, Ministry of People’s Security and The Office of Central Prosecutors. According to the statement, the crime for “terror terror perfect”.
Ms. Park and M. Lee “can never make the same appeal if they encounter a miserable dog death anytime, anywhere and by any method thereafter,” the statement said.

There was no immediate response from Mrs. Park, who has been incarcerated since she was forced to face corruption charges in March and the National Intelligence Service. However, South Korea’s spy agency has denied trying to assassinate M. Kim.

North Korea said Park had approved an “operation to replace the supreme leadership of the North” since late 2015.

He said the plot includes the assassination of Mr. Kim, said South Korean authorities were planning to dress up as “car accident or train.” But the plot was finally dropped after Ms. Park was accused in a corruption scandal, said North Korea.

The statement gave no further details of the plot taken. But on Monday, the Japanese daily Asahi, citing unidentified sources, reported that Mrs. Park had approved a plan for the National Intelligence Service to topple the government of M. Kim in 2015. The spy agency called the report without foundation.

The truncated term of Mrs. Park’s office has been marked by a technical flaw with North Korea, who had tried to assassinate her father when he was South Korea’s dictator for almost half a century.

M. Kim has accelerated the North’s nuclear weapons program with a torrent of ballistic missile and ballistic missile tests, threatening South Korea and the United States of a “nuclear sword of justice.”

Mrs. Park called for harsh sanctions against the North while she smoked, calling her a “snake” and a “prostitute.”

Kim Kim, the grandson of North Korea’s founder Kim Il-sung, runs an autocracy that is particularly sensitive to any evidence of a threat to the head.

North Korea is widely considered to be responsible for Sony Pictures’ daring piracy in 2014 in retaliation for “The Interview,” a fictional American film about a plot to assassinate Mr. Kim. Although North Korea is known to have attempted to assassinate South Korean leaders at least twice, it is very rare for the North to claim to be the victim of a plot of South Korea.

In 1968, North Korea sent commands away from the residence of Ms. Park’s father, Park Chung-hee, strike before being rejected in bloody shootings.

In 1983, North Korean agents attempted to assassinate South Korea’s dictator Chun Doo-hwan on his way to Burma, now Myanmar. Bomb blast killed 21 people, including South Korean ministers, but M. Chun escaped unharmed.

Venezuela may be sliding into a civil war

Venezuela may be sliding into a civil war

Venezuela may be sliding into a civil war

It was like a scene from a movie. At the end of Tuesday afternoon, the inhabitants of Caracas saw a helicopter in blue font circulate in the capital, with a sign that read “Freedom” or “freedom” and the number “350” – a reference, explain colleagues “in the Section of Venezuela’s constitution, which allows people to “repudiate” their government is acting in an undemocratic manner. ”

Government officials said the helicopter dropped several bombs on Venezuelan Supreme Court buildings and expelled them from the Interior Ministry.

On Wednesday, authorities were searching for alleged attack leader Oscar Perez, an actor who also served in the country’s special forces.

In a country torn apart by political turmoil and economic collapse, helicopter incident – framed by an attempted coup by President Nicolas Maduro and his followers – is not that an explosive episode another day of chaos.

The protests and counter-demonstrations continued in several cities of Venezuela; Supporters of the government attacked the National Assembly, dominated by opposition lawmakers; Maduro made an incendiary televised speech, a dark warning of more violence.

“If Venezuela has been plunged into chaos and violence, and the Bolivarian Revolution has been destroyed, we will fight,” Maduro told a crowd of supporters, referring to the socialist and populist platform that transforms Venezuela under its charismatic predecessor , Hugo Chavez.

“We will never give, and what could not be done with the votes, we would do it with arms. We liberate our country with arms.”

Since the crisis began there three months, at least 76 people were killed in clashes between demonstrators and armed demonstrators and security forces.

Most of the dead were civilians. Experts fear that Venezuela could lead to a pure civil war without foreign diplomatic intervention.

“Maduro and officials around him seem determined to stay in power at all costs, despite growing regional isolation and increasing signs of division within the government and the military,” said my colleague Nick Miroff earlier this month . “A more dramatic rupture within the Venezuelan armed forces could be the worst case if it provokes intestinal fights.”

Hence the Perez helicopter mission was so alarming. Maduro and his allies have repeatedly described the incident as right-wing terrorism encouraged by foreign powers.

In a video uploaded to social networks, Perez said that his group was a non-partisan Alliance soldiers and police officers who sought no conflict with the country’s security forces.

“It goes against the impunity imposed by this government,” Pérez said in the video, which is flanked by men masquerading as guns. “It is against the tyranny, it is against the death of young people who are fighting for their legitimate rights, it is against hunger.”

But on Wednesday, many in Venezuela have begun to wonder whether the attack, which was so much a part of the government’s narrative, was a false flag. The conscience of the spectator career Perez – played in an action movie entitled “Suspended Death” – has drawn attention and confusion.

Six Are Charged in 1989 Hillsborough Stadium Disaster in England

Six Are Charged in 1989 Hillsborough Stadium Disaster in England

LONDON – Decades after the deadliest disaster in the history of English football stadium, British prosecutors charged six people Wednesday, including four former high police officials, to the death of 96 people crushed and trampled stage Hillsborough in Sheffield In 1989.

The disaster has transformed the way sports are viewed in the country, and the decision to claim as the families of the victims, including 37 fatally crushed or crushed teenagers, is expected.

In April 2016, a two-year investigation found that fans had been “victims of unlawful killings” and cited errors or omissions by police in planning and enforcing security for the party on April 15, 1989.

In particular, he challenged the actions of commanders. The investigation has left prosecutors decide whether to file criminal charges, and on Wednesday, the Crown Prosecutors Department announced it would.

David Duckenfield, the commander of the South Yorkshire police party on the day of the tragedy, will face homicide charges.

Five other men are also indicted Graham Henry Mackrell, former secretary of Sheffield Wednesday Football Club, which operates the Hillsborough stadium; Peter Metcalf, a lawyer who represented the South Yorkshire Police; And three other former high-ranking police officers – Norman Bettison Donald Denton and Alan Foster.
The victims suffocated in an AF Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest when police opened a door in an attempt to relieve congestion outside the stadium before the match.

This has led fans outside the flood, some trampling and crushing the other against the steel fence. In addition to the 96 dead, from 10 to 67 years, more than 700 people were injured. (One of the dead 96 days after the game, another who was left in a persistent vegetative state, died in 1993.)
A BBC documentary on the Hillsborough disaster. Cosmos video documentaries
After the disaster, some senior law enforcement officials and members of the media, especially the sun, emphasized first victims by committing their own death, saying they had been drunk and rebellious.

The struggle for decades to find out what really happened on the day of the dragged game as authorities tried to whip and blame the fans for the disaster.

1989 Taylor poll, which immediately investigated, accused a “police control failure”, and found that police had unfairly tried to blame the fans.

However, a forensic investigation ruled 1,991 accidental deaths and no criminal charges were filed. Aggravating families have fought a long campaign that over time changed the narrative that prevails in the case – which has raised questions of class, institutional responsibility and justice – far from being the behavior of fans by the failure of the application of the Law.
In 2012, an independent panel concluded that there had been a complex dissolution of the police, the government apologized to the victims and a court overturned the conclusion that the deaths were accidental.

(Among the disclosures: forensic had assigned an arbitrary time of death of 41 victims, some were still not dead.) This made the new investigation, which began in 2014.

Trump, South Korea’s Moon to show united front despite trade differences

President Donald Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in may present a united front in North Korea at the White House on Thursday and Friday but trade tensions could penetrate their efforts to strengthen relations between the United States And South Korea.

Luna, on her first trip to the US From his arrival at the head of his country, will join Trump and his wife Melania for dinner in the White House Chamber Room on Thursday night before the Friday meetings to be applied to the nuclear program of North Korea, China’s role in the region and the THAAD missile defense system for the United States Army.

The two men are interested in building a strong relationship.

Luna wants to get used to the old businessman in New York and find common ground on how to solve the crisis by North Korea’s nuclear and missile program.

Trump wants to establish ties with a major leader in the region when he was frustrated with Beijing’s failure to control Pyongyang, despite its relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

“If President Trump and I are strong friendship and trust personal ties and if we try to solve the North Korean nuclear problem based on these personal connections, I think we can get the North Korean nuclear problem resolution,” said Moon To Reuters last week.

Trade could affect the process of relationship building.

In an interview with Reuters in April Trump called the five-year KORUS trade pact between the US and Canada. And South Korea “horrible” and “unacceptable” and said to renegotiate or in the end.

“I think they have a friendly and frank discussion of the business relationship,” said a White House reporter Wednesday, noting concern about barriers to US car sales. And Chinese excess steel passes to the United States through South Korea.

The US merchandise trade deficit with South Korea has more than doubled since KORUS went into effect in 2012, from $ 13.2 billion in 2011 to $ 27.7 billion in 2016. It was planned to stimulate US exports of 10,000 Millions of dollars per year, but were lower by $ 3 billion in 2016 and 2011.

Speaking at the US Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, Luna said unfair trade practices would be eradicated and that factors that limit competition, such as entry barriers and price regulation, would be “re-evaluated” Under his administration.

Another collision point in their potential talks could turn around the defense system of the high altitude zone (THAAD) that the United States deployed in South Korea in March.

Luna, who advocated a more moderate approach to Pyongyang, expressed surprise last month after learning that four more pitchers for the controversial system had been introduced into the country. An investigation was ordered after the Ministry of Defense has not reported the move.

The system, whose installation has infuriated China, is designed to counter the threat of North Korea’s missile program. The White House said it did not expect THAAD to be an important conversation item.

Despite possible areas of disagreement, the two leaders must express a common solution to the threat of North Korea.

“The similarities in our approaches are already evident,” the White House chief said, noting that the two men had expressed their willingness to commit to Pyongyang under the right conditions.

Even once they can arise from the conditions, to initiate a dialogue, we must maintain and, in fact, increase the pressure on North Korea. This is the approach of the President of the moon; This is President Trump’s approach. “

Why one man keeps ramming his car into Ten Commandments statues on government property

Why one man keeps ramming his car into Ten Commandments statues on government property

In the video, the Arkansas Capitol dome can be lit up against the night sky while the Dodge Dart accelerates to 10, then 20 km / h.

“Oh, my God,” said a man as he passed the car lights. “Freedom!”

The vehicle accelerates the hill, and the last thing that happens before an accident or a large newly installed monument.

Authorities say the man in the video is Michael Tate Reed, a presumed serial destroyer of the Ten Commandments monuments.

He was arrested this morning by state police officers, according to Chris Powell, a spokesman for the Arkansas Secretary of State. Reed is charged with trespassing, first-degree property damage, and disfigurement of public objects.

This object of public interest was a three-ton granite monument that had been installed less than 24 hours before his violent death before dawn on the southwest lawn of the state capital at Little Rock.

Crews cleared the scene of the accident late Wednesday morning and took the broken pieces in storage, Powell said. Jason Rapert, a senator from the state of Arkansas who led the movement to build the monument, said a replacement has already been ordered, according to the Arkansas Gazette.
“This law will be filled, and we will raise the money to make sure it is delivered where it should be,” he told the newspaper.
Reed could not be reached for comment. Powell told The Washington Post he was not sure whether Reed had been released from prison.

According to the Associated Press, a law in 2015 requiring Arkansas to allow the display of the Ten Commandments near the capital. But groups defending a strong separation between church and state have criticized the placement of a biblical statue on the grounds of state government headquarters.

Following the announcement of plans for the Ten Commandments monument, the satanic temple pressed for a statue of the Baphomet contest, a goose-headed creature angel wings and accompanied by two sons of the sourivaient, the AP reported.

Other states have wrestled with similar controversies Ten Commandments, including Oklahoma, which installed a monument of 4,800 books on its capital camp in 2012.

In 2014, Reed drove a car into the monument, Powell said. But it was replaced and was on the ground in the capital until the state Supreme Court ruled that it had to be withdrawn, according to Abby Phillip Washington Post.

According to the World Tulsa Organization, a judge ordered Reed to receive mental health treatment after the incident. He was diagnosed with a schizoaffective disorder and was released under an agreement that forced him to continue his treatment.

An informal letter was sent to the newspaper apologizing and describing the voices in his head and his attempts to recover from mental health problems.

He also explained an incident in which the voices told him to drop his car against other cars, but destroyed a middle of the road. In the past, he entered federal buildings to spit portraits, threatened former President Barack Obama and put money on fire, according to the world.

Reed seems to refer to the Oklahoma rollover incident in a Facebook message before he was hit by the Arkansas statue.

“I firmly believe that for our salvation, we not only have faith in Jesus Christ, but by obeying the commandments of God and confessing Jesus as Lord,” he said in the post.

“But one thing I can not stand is the violation of our constitutional right to freedom guarantees us, guarantees us the separation of church and state, because no religion should represent the government.”

Cardinal Pell: Vatican treasurer denies Australia sex offences

He complained that he had been subjected to “relentless murder” during a two-year investigation of “false” allegations.

He said the pope had conceded that he was going to fight the charges.
The charges refer to alleged “historical” facts, police said in Victoria state.
The allegations were made by a number of people, said Shane Patton Police Commissioner Deputy.

Cardinal Pell, 76, who is based in the Vatican, told a news conference at the Holy See, “I look forward to spending my day in court.
“I am innocent of these charges being false. The idea of sexual abuse is horrible for me.”

As treasurer of the Vatican, Cardinal Pell is considered the third head of the Holy See.
The Catholic Church in the world has experienced in recent years a series of prejudicial allegations of sexual abuse by priests and claims that these cases were hidden.

What are the charges?
Victoria police said they took the decision to charge Cardinal Pell after prosecutors received a notice last month.
“Cardinal Pell faces multiple charges and there are several plaintiffs,” said Patton’s assistant to the Commissioner.

Details of the allegations have not been proven.
Deputy Commissioner Patton said the “process” and police procedures were no different from any other research.

“Cardinal Pell was treated like everyone else in this investigation,” he said.
The charges were Cardinal Pell’s legal representatives in Melbourne on Thursday.

The cardinal would have to face the Melbourne Magistrates Court on July 18, said the Patton Deputy Commissioner.
Who is Cardinal Pell?

Cardinal Pell has been a strong advocate of traditional Catholic values, taking a conservative stance on marriage and same-sex contraception and promoting priestly celibacy.

But his career was initially tarnished by allegations of having covered the sexual abuse of children by priests, and later himself was an abuser. He has always denied the allegations.

In 2014, Cardinal Pell was called to Rome to become head of Vatican finance, a new position created by Francis in the context of Vatican Bank scandals.

But he left a growing anger over revelations of sexual violence in children by Catholic clergy in Australia.
Cardinal Pell has repeatedly reiterated allegations of abuse of the victims of concealment and his critics have accused him of appearing distant and arrogant.

He was accused of moving a notorious pedophile priest – Gerald Ridsdale – around parishes instead of reporting it, and trying to present a casualty victim.

He denied the allegations, but said he could have done more to investigate allegations of abuse.
In 2016, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. (ABC) was issued accusations of two men who claimed that Cardinal Pell had played improperly in the 1970s.
He flatly denied the allegations, which he describes as a “scandalous defamation campaign.”

More information about Cardinal Pell
Shockwaves – Hywel Griffith correspondent for BBC Australia
Cardinal Pell is not only the greatest scholar of Australia, he is one of the highest officials in the Catholic world.

For two decades, she was a front-line figure in the church’s debate on controversial issues such as homosexuality, AIDS research and stem cells.
He also referred to the church’s official response to allegations of sexual abuse within its ranks to Australians during a series of investigations.

When he gave videoconference tests to a Royal Commission for abuse last year, some survivors of abuse flew all the way to Rome to see him.
