  2. Secuestro en Colombia aumentó un 32 por ciento en 2010: País Libre

    http://www.caracol.com.co/nota.aspx?id=1422571

    2.7.11

    En 32 por ciento aumentó la práctica del secuestro en Colombia durante el 2010, comparándola con las cifras de 2009 a nivel nacional, según reveló la organización no gubernamental País Libre.



    Las cifras indican que la delincuencia común fue responsable del 57 por ciento de los secuestros durante el año pasado, las Farc del 23 por ciento, el ELN del 12 por ciento y las bandas emergentes del 7 por ciento.

    Según País Libre, de los 282 secuestros denunciados durante el año que concluyó, 188 casos correspondieron a secuestro extorsivo, es decir el 64 por ciento y 94 casos a secuestro simple, equivalentes al 36 por ciento.

    Según un comunicado, el 80 por ciento de los plagiados durante el 2010 fueron hombres y el 20 por ciento restante mujeres. Así mismo, el 99 por ciento fueron víctimas de nacionalidad colombiana y el 1 por ciento restante, tres 3 casos, fueron víctimas extranjeras: un suizo, un japonés y un norteamericano.

    Cuatro extorsiones diarias

    Es de resaltar que en Colombia durante el 2010 diariamente se extorsionó a cuatro personas, lo que arrojó un total de 1335 denuncias por este delito a nivel nacional.

    Tanto en extorsión como en secuestro, Arauca fue el departamento de Colombia que durante el 2010 registró un aumento alarmante. De 3 extorsiones pasó a 46 y de 8 secuestros pasó a 36.

    Señala la organización no gubernamental que el aumento de estos delitos en el departamento de Arauca obedece básicamente a que la presencia de las guerrillas de las Farc y el ELN en esta zona fronteriza del país es bastante fuerte y a que los diálogos entre los gobiernos de Colombia y Venezuela sobre seguridad en la frontera no han dado resultados.

    Después de Arauca, fueron los departamentos de Amazonas y Vichada los que en materia de extorsión mayor variación mostraron.



    Kidnapping in Colombia increased by 32 percent in 2010: Free Country

    http://www.caracol.com.co/nota.aspx?id=1422571

    2.7.11


    In 32 percent increased the practice of kidnapping in Colombia during 2010, compared with 2009 figures at the national level, as revealed by the NGO Pais Libre.

    The figures indicate that common criminals were responsible for 57 percent of abductions over the past year, the FARC's 23 percent, the ELN's 12 percent and emerging bands from 7 percent.

    According to Pais Libre, of the 282 kidnappings reported during the year ended, 188 cases were kidnapping for ransom, or 64 percent and 94 cases of kidnapping, 36 per cent.

    According to a statement, 80 percent of the hostages in 2010 were men and 20 percent women. Likewise, 99 percent were victims of Colombian nationality and the remaining 1 percent, three 3 cases, victims were foreigners: one Swiss, one Japanese and one American.

    Four daily extortion

    It is noteworthy that in Colombia during 2010 was extorted daily four people, leaving a total of 1335 complaints about this crime nationally.

    Both extortion as kidnapping, was the department of Arauca Colombia, which in 2010 registered an alarming increase. From 3 to 46 spent extortion and kidnappings spent 8 to 36.

    The NGO notes that the increase in these crimes in the department of Arauca is due primarily to the presence of the guerrillas of the FARC and the ELN in the border area of the country is strong enough and that the talks between the governments of Colombia and Venezuela on border security have not yielded results.

    After Arauca, were the departments of Amazonas and Vichada those relating to extortion showed greater variation.

    2.8.11

    Los exportadores colombianos pidieron al Gobierno Nacional claridad frente al compromiso del presidente de Venezuela, Hugo Chávez, de cancelar 800 millones de dólares que adeuda a los empresarios.

    El presidente de Analdex, Javier Díaz Molina, aseguró que hasta el momento se han firmado pactos de pagos por 300 millones de dólares.

    Sin embargo, explicó que Venezuela está hablando de 530 millones de dólares por lo que las cuentas en los actuales momentos no cuadran para los exportadores colombianos.

    Por ello, pidió al Gobierno del presidente Juan Manuel Santos una reunión con las autoridades del vecino país con el fin de hacer claridad sobre el particular.



    De otra parte, el dirigente gremial expresó su preocupación por que el Cadivi anunció que no va a cancelar 200 millones de dólares con el argumento que esta deuda es producto de sobrefacturación.

    Continue tangled accounts Venezuela debt payment to exporters: Analdex

    http://www.caracol.com.co/nota.aspx?id=1423222

    2.8.11


    Colombian exporters have asked the Government clearly against the commitment of President of Venezuela, Hugo Chávez, to cancel $ 800 million owed to employers.

    Analdex President, Javier Díaz Molina, said that so far have signed agreements to pay 300 million dollars.

    However, he explained that Venezuela is talking about $ 530 million so that the accounts at the present time do not add up to Colombian exporters.

    He therefore asked the government of President Juan Manuel Santos met with the authorities of the neighboring country in order to make clear on the matter.

    Furthermore, the union leader expressed concern that the Cadivi announced that it will cancel $ 200 million on the grounds that this debt is the result of overbilling.

  1. Bombed Colombia oil pipe seen offline for days-source

    http://www.trust.org/alertnet/news/bombed-colombia-oil-pipe-seen-offline-for-days-source/

    09 Feb 2011 20:41

    BOGOTA, Feb 9 (Reuters) - A 48,000-barrels-per-day capacity Colombian oil pipeline was still not operating on Wednesday since workers had not reached the remote site where suspected rebels detonated bombs, a source at Ecopetrol said.

    The Transandino pipeline -- which transports crude from the southern Putumayo province near the Ecuadorean frontier to the port of Tumaco on the Colombian Pacific coast -- was halted by bomb attacks without affecting exports earlier this week.

    "They still haven't been able to reach the site," said a source at state-run Ecopetrol, Colombia's largest oil producer. The source said once the workers arrive, it should take around four days to repair depending on the damages.

    The 305-km (190-mile) pipeline moved an average of 25,000 to 30,000 barrels of oil per day (bpd) from fields in Putumayo through the Narino department on the coast.

    Colombia's leftist FARC rebels operate in Putumayo and neighbouring Narino as well as do some criminal groups. The smaller ELN guerrilla movement also has a presence in Narino.

    Colombia, now Latin America's No. 4 oil producer, has seen a sharp drop in violence from its long war as rebels have been battered by a U.S.-backed security offensive. But guerrillas still occasionally attack oil pipelines in remote areas.




  1. Realism tempers modernising zeal of popular leader

By John Paul Rathbone and Naomi Mapstone in Bogotá


http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/430c1e2a-379a-11e0-b91a-00144feabdc0.html#axzz1Dw9fdMTv

Colombia’s Juan Manuel Santos is riding high: a 90 per cent approval rating probably makes him the world’s most popular president.

“My kids say ‘Dad, congratulations’, but I tell them ‘Don’t be stupid! We can only go down’,” he jokes during an interview at the presidential palace.

If Mr Santos is nervous, he doesn’t show it, as befits a renowned poker player. Still, the pressures have taken their toll on the 59-year-old: his voice is husky from a recent bout of flu.

Since the self-proclaimed “extreme centrist” won last August’s elections with 70 per cent of the vote, Mr Santos has embraced the presidency with a modernising zeal and canny pragmatism.

Tensions have eased with Colombia’s unpredictable neighbour, Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez – who used to deride Mr Santos as a Yankee stooge but now calls him “my new best friend”.

Mr Santos’ first state visit was also to Brazil and he is yet to travel to the US – a profound shift of emphasis from his predecessor Álvaro Uribe, under whom Mr Santos served as defence minister.

While the US dithers over ratifying a long-delayed free trade agreement, Colombia is pursuing trade pacts with Japan and South Korea. A Canadian free trade pact, which could displace US grain exports to Colombia, is also about to be implemented.

“The fact there are other countries I want to have good relations with does not mean I am depriori-tising the US,” he says.

Meanwhile, Colombia’s successes under Mr Uribe’s administration in quelling narco-traffickers and leftwing insurgents has allowed the technocratic Mr Santos to unleash initiatives that aim to haul South America’s third biggest country into the 21st century.

“Too often in Latin America we spend 80 per cent of our time talking about the past, and only 20 per cent on the future. In Asia it’s the inverse.”

One sign of Mr Santos’ desire to swap that ratio around is his determination to upgrade Colombian infrastructure: currently, it costs as much to ship goods from China as it does to bring those goods from the coast to Bogotá. One particularly ambitious proposal would see the Chinese build an alternative to the Panama Canal.

“It all depends on how such [infrastructure] improvements are financed,” he comments, with an eye on Colombia’s budget. “If they can be done through foreign investment, via concessions, the sky is the limit.”

Another is his emphasis on social policies and fighting corruption in a country with one of the world’s highest levels of inequality. Congress is debating two laws to compensate victims of Colombia’s decades-long violence, and restitute land stolen by guerrillas or paramilitary groups during the fighting. “We have to heal wounds . . . it’s symbolic,”, he says.

Mr Santos acknowledges that his seven-month-old government, with its Nike-like “just do it” approach, may not be able to deliver all it has promised.

“There are many enemies [of reform],” he says. “I am aware of the dangers . . . It is a very difficult test.”

But Mr Santos is as hard-headed as he is ambitious. That is apparent in his take on drug legalisation: “I’m not a fundamentalist . . . But this has to be a multilateral approach.” In the meantime, “fighting drug trafficking is a matter of national security”, as it should be in the UK, Europe and west Africa.

  1. El Aissami: Tasa de homicidios es de 48 por 100.00 habitantes

    http://eluniversal.com/2011/02/08/pol_ava_el-aissami:-tasa-de_08A5133011.shtml



    2.8.11

    Caracas.- El ministro de Interior y Justicia, Tareck El Aissami defendió los logros del gobierno de Hugo Chávez en materia de seguridad presentando cifras según las cuales se han reducido las cifras en la materia en los últimos años. 

    "La tasa en Venezuela es de 48 homicidios por 100.000 habitantes, y sigue siendo alta porqué está por encima de la media en Latinoamérica, esa es la verdad con cifras oficiales", dijo El Aissami en respuesta al planteamiento del diputado William Barrientos de que renuncie a su cargo "por el fracaso de su gestión".

    Señaló que "en nueve estados se concentra el 75% del total de fallecidos por violencia (10.421 personas). Encabeza la lista el estado Miranda".

    El funcionario reveló cifras según las cuales en Miranda se produjeron 2.288 homicidios durante 2010; 1.935 en Carabobo; 1.700 en Distrito Capital; 1.063 en Aragua; 1.010 en Zulia; 728 en Lara; 625 en Bolívar; 529 en Anzoátegui y 507 en Táchira.

    Acusó al diputado Barrientos de manejar cifras inexactas del tema de la inseguridad y se refirió al caso del diputado José Sánchez "Mazuco". "Uno de los diputados que usted apoyó está sentenciado por homicidio", dijo.

    El Aissami aseguró que los homicidios han disminuido 10% en los 37 municipios donde ha habido operativos del Dispositivo Bicentenario de Seguridad.

    Puntualizó que entre 2009 y 2010 se redujo en 57% la tasa de delitos en Catia gracias a la Policía Nacional Bolivariana y agregó que se registró una disminución del 44% en los homicidios en la parroquia Sucre del municipio Libertador.

    Aseguró El Aissami que el Gobierno "no subestima" el problema de la inseguridad. "Siempre hemos reconocido que el problema de la inseguridad es prioritario para el Gobierno", dijo.

    Indicó el ministro que "en el tema de la inseguridad, los medios tienen responsabilidad en la alteración de la conciencia", destacando que "titulares sangrientos en diarios y programación de televisión incitan a la violencia".

    Destacó que se trata de un problema que viene arrastrándose desde el pasado. "No es posible hablar de inseguridad sin hablar de antecedentes. No se trata de competir ni compararnos con nadie, ni reducir el debate a un escenario cuantitativo, pues para quienes defendemos la causa humana y la integridad del ser humano una sola víctima es motivo para comprometernos en la búsqueda de la paz para todos y cada uno de nosotros", dijo.

    "La criminalidad es tan compleja, que no puede ser resuelta sólo por el Gobierno Nacional", agregó. 

    Dijo que la oposición "sabotea" los esfuerzos del plan Dibise. "No participan. Hemos pedido funcionarios y mandan uno".

    Calificó como un logro sin precedentes en materia de seguridad la creación de la Policía Nacional Bolivariana y aseguró que "para 2011 tenemos como meta formar 12.500 oficiales de la Policía Nacional y la construcción de 7 sedes".

    Armas para un país acechado



    Por su parte el ministro de la Defensa, general en jefe Carlos Mata Figueroa, defendió la política del Gobierno de invertir en armamento.

    "Creo que aquí no debe haber ningún diputado que tenga algo en contra del deber constitucional que tiene la Fuerza Armada Nacional. No creo que ningún diputado esté contra el principio constitucional de defensa", dijo.

    "Nos negaron repuestos y piezas y no podíamos quedarnos con los brazos cruzados. Teníamos que incrementar nuestro poder militar, somos un país acechado, con la mayor cantidad de petróleo", agregó.

    Oposición no hizo aportes para superar crisis



    El vicepresidente de la República, Elías Jaua, aseguró que la oposición no hizo ningún aporte para superar las "cinco crisis" que vivió el país en 2010 pese a que los excedentes producto del incremento del precio del petróleo fueron transferidos a las gobernaciones y alcaldías.

    "Todos los excedentes producto del incremento del precio del petróleo fueron transferidos en su totalidad a las gobernaciones y alcaldías del país", dijo Jaua durante su comparecencia ante los diputados de la Asamblea Nacional.

    Explicó que "en 2010 la Gobernación de Táchira tuvo 35,45% de incremento a su presupuesto asignado (…) la Gobernación de Miranda tuvo 35,45% de excedente en su presupuesto asignado (…) la Gobernación de Carabobo tuvo 34,45% de excedente en su presupuesto asignado"

    "Hemos podido sostener precios petroleros justos para sostener el presupuesto de la nación", enfatizó.




    The Aissami: Homicide rate is 48 per 100.00 inhabitants

    http://eluniversal.com/2011/02/08/pol_ava_el-aissami:-tasa-de_08A5133011.shtml

    2.8.11

    Caracas .- The Minister of Interior and Justice, Tarek El Aissami defended the achievements of the government of Hugo Chavez in safety with percentages according to which the figures have been reduced in this area in recent years.

    "The rate in Venezuela is 48 homicides per 100,000 inhabitants, and remains high because it is above average in Latin America, that's the truth to official figures," said El Aissami in response to the approach by Mr William Barrientos for his resignation responsible "for the failure of his administration."

    He noted that "in nine states for 75% of total deaths from violence (10,421 people). Topping the list is the state of Miranda."



    The official figures revealed in Miranda under which 2,288 were homicides during 2010, 1,935 in Carabobo, 1,700 in the Capital District, 1063 in Aragua, 1,010 in Zulia, Lara 728 in and 625 in Bolivar, Anzoategui and 507 529 in Táchira.

    Barrientos deputy accused of handling the item inaccurate figures of insecurity and referred to the case of Rep. Jose Sanchez "Mazuco." "One of the deputies who supported you is convicted of murder," he said.

    The Aissami said homicides have dropped 10% in the 37 municipalities where it has been operating Bicentennial Security Device.

    He noted that between 2009 and 2010 was reduced by 57% the rate of crime in Catia thanks to the Bolivarian National Police, adding that there was a 44% reduction in homicides in the parish of Libertador municipality Sucre.

    The Aissami said the government "underestimated" the problem of insecurity. "We have always recognized that the problem of insecurity is a priority for the government," he said.

    The minister said that "the issue of insecurity, the media have a responsibility to altered consciousness," noting that "bloody headlines in newspapers and television programs incite violence."

    He stressed that this is a problem that has dragged on for the past. "No one can speak of insecurity without speaking background. This is not to compete or compare ourselves with anyone, not reduce the debate to a quantitative stage, because for those who defend human reason and human integrity is one reason why victim engage in the pursuit of peace for every one of us, "he said.

    "Crime is so complex, that can not be resolved only by the national government," he added.



    He said the opposition "sabotage" the efforts of Dibis plan. "Do not participate. We have asked officials and they send you."

    Described as an unprecedented achievement in building up the Bolivarian National Police and said that "by 2011 our goal is to train 12,500 national police officers and the construction of 7 locations."

    Weapons to a country haunted

    For his part, Minister of Defence, Commander Carlos Mata Figueroa, defended the Government's policy to invest in weaponry.

    "I think we should not be any Member who has anything against the constitutional duty is military. Do not think any member is against the constitutional principle of defense," he said.

    "We were denied parts and pieces and we could not sit with folded arms. We had to increase our military, we are a country haunted, with the greatest amount of oil," he added.

    Opposition did not make contributions to overcome crisis

    The Vice President, Elias Jaua, said the opposition did not make any contribution to overcome the five "crisis" that the country experienced in 2010 despite the surplus product of the rising price of oil were transferred to states and municipalities.

    "Any surplus proceeds of oil price increases were fully transferred to states and municipalities in the country," said Jaua during his appearance before the National Assembly deputies.

    He explained that "in 2010 the Governor of Táchira was 35.45% increase to its budget (...) the Governor of Miranda had 35.45% of its budget surplus (...) the Governor of Carabobo was 34.45% surplus in its budget "

    "We were able to sustain oil prices just to support the national budget," he said.
