They detained three people, removed computers and other equipment, and destroyed files by dousing them with gasoline and setting them on fire.The attack came three days after the Supreme Court heard testimony from survivors – children whose parents were assassinated by government soldiers during a raid in 1982. Pro-Búsqueda represented the survivors in court, where no one from the armed forces showed up.“We regret that these types of violent activities against those of us who seek justice in this country continue. We do not want to return to our past in which these events were commonplace,” said Anglican-Episcopal Church of El Salvador Bishop Martín Barahona in response to the attack. “There is obviously a sector of society that seeks to destabilize the country by these means, and we do not yet know who they are.”In October, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of San Salvador abruptly closed its legal office, Tutela Legal, which housed an extensive collection of evidence and 50,000 documents related to human rights abuses committed during the country’s 1980-92 civil war.Archbishop Oscar A. Romero, who served the Archdiocese of San Salvador from 1977 until his March 24, 1980, assassination, opened the legal office in his first year as archbishop. During his popular, weekly radio broadcast, Romero regularly read the names of those who’d been murdered, tortured or “disappeared;” many Salvadorans view his assassination as the tipping point toward war.By official estimates, some 75,000 people were killed and countless others were disappeared and tortured during the war, which was fought between the U.S.-supported right-wing government and leftist guerillas.Both the closing of the archdiocese’s legal office and the attack on Pro-Búsqueda come at a time when the country’s Supreme Court considers the constitutionality of its 1993 amnesty law, which has protected perpetrators of human rights abuses committed during the civil war from being prosecuted for their crimes. Last year, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights declared that the amnesty law could not protect those responsible for the massacre at El Mozote, where government soldiers killed some 800 people, half of them children, in December 1981. El Salvador’s Human Rights Ombudsman David Morales condemned the attack on Pro-Búsqueda, saying that such attacks had not happened since the early 1990s, post-war, as reported in the online newspaper El Faro.“It is a worrying resurgence of such acts,” said Morales. Without doubt, he added, the attack was politically motivated and sought to “intimidate, frighten and instill fear” in an atmosphere of impunity.One point in negotiation of the 1992 Peace Accords was the formation of a truth commission to investigate human rights violations that occurred during the civil war. In post-war El Salvador, grassroots human rights and social justice organizations have played a key role is protecting the historical memory and bringing these cases out of the shadows of history.The organizations are demanding the archdiocese release its files back to the victims so that they can choose who represents them in their demands for justice. They also are demanding an investigation into the most recent attacks.“Since the Peace Accords, El Salvador has been experimenting with a negotiated peace without justice,” Bullock said. “Attacks like the one against Pro-Búsqueda last week indicate that the elements of society involved in perpetrating those crimes continue to believe that they can operate above the law with impunity. The burning of human rights offices is not behavior conducive to building a peaceful and democratic society.”In January, in advance of the Feb. 2 presidential primary, Foundation Cristosal will offer a weeklong course for North Americans to study the process of building peace and democracy in post-war El Salvador. Course participants will have the opportunity to speak with politicians, academics and community leaders about the state of peace and democracy, and also to serve as election observers.— Lynette Wilson is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.  Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector Shreveport, LA Comments are closed.

They have hired thugs to do their work and perhaps intimidated the church in El Salvador to duck and run from the people.

Waisake Naholo and RG Snyman both banned after red cards for shoulders

first_imgTuesday May 16, 2017 Waisake Naholo and RG Snyman both banned after red cards for shoulders The Highlanders beat the Bulls 17-10 with a late try at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday, but earlier in the match a player from each side was red card for two separate incidents. Both were similar in the fact that they were for dangerous shoulders, however. Highlights winger Waisake Naholo first received his red card after he appeared to pull out of a tackle last minute, but made contact with his shoulder on Bulls centre Burger Odendaal.Just eight minutes later, it was the Bulls who lost a player after lock RG Snyman flew into a ruck with no arms, and he too was sent from the field.Naholo has since been banned for 1 week, while Snyman got a 4-week suspension.WAISAKE NAHOLO RED CARDIn his SANZAAR Foul Play Review Committee, Naholo pleaded guilty to contravening Law 10.4(g), Dangerous charging or obstructing or grabbing of an Opponent with or without the ball, including shouldering.The SANZAAR Foul Play Review Committee of Nigel Hampton QC (Chairman), Stefan Terblanche and Stephen Hardy assessed the case. In his finding, Foul Play Review Committee Chairman Nigel Hampton QC ruled the following: “Having considered the Referee’s description of the incident and the available video footage, the Foul Play Review Committee amended the charge to Law 10.4(g). Having further considered all the evidence, including submissions from his legal representative, Aaron Lloyd, the Foul Play Review Committee found the Player’s actions to have breached the Red Card threshold. “With respect to sanction the Foul Play Review Committee deemed the act of foul play merited a low-end entry point of 2 weeks. However, taking into account mitigating factors including the Player’s good Judicial record and early guilty plea, the Foul Play Review Committee reduced the suspension to 1 week.“The player is therefore suspended for 1 week, up to and including Saturday 20 May 2017.”RG SNYMAN RED CARDThe SANZAAR Foul Play Review Committee accepted a guilty plea from RG Snyman for contravening Law 10.4(h), A Player must not charge into a ruck or maul.The SANZAAR Foul Play Review Committee of Nigel Hampton QC (Chairman), Stefan Terblanche and Stephen Hardy assessed the case. In his finding, Foul Play Review Committee Chairman Nigel Hampton QC ruled the following: “Having conducted a detailed review of all the available evidence, including all camera angles and additional evidence, including from the player and submissions from his legal representative, Marius Botha, the Foul Play Review Committee upheld the citing under Law 10.4(h). “With respect to sanction the Foul Play Review Committee deemed the act of foul play merited a mid-range entry point of 6 weeks primarily due to the dangerous nature of the act and the direct contact with the opponent’s head. “However, taking into account mitigating factors including the Player’s good Judicial record and early guilty plea, the Foul Play Review Committee reduced the suspension to 4 weeks.“The player is therefore suspended for 4 weeks, up to and including the Friday 9 June 2017.”– VIEW HIGHLIGHTS: Super Rugby Round 12 matchesADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

AP Ethanol Story Causing Stir Before Release

first_img SHARE AP Ethanol Story Causing Stir Before Release Home Energy AP Ethanol Story Causing Stir Before Release Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Nov 11, 2013 SHARE The ethanol industry has gone on the offensive to defend itself against an Associated Press “investigative report” that has yet to be released for publication.Fuels America held a conference call today about the article which is embargoed until after midnight but was circulated last week on the internet. The call included Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) Vice President of Research and Analysis Geoff Cooper and Leroy Perkins, an Iowa farmer who was quoted in the AP story.Perkins says he was contacted by AP reporters in July to talk about “the county fair, along with absentee, out-of-state state landlords and of course, water quality.” During the course of the interview, one of the reporters asked him what he thought about ethanol. “I told them I was for ethanol, I believe in it and we use it in our vehicles and equipment all the time … because it’s a product of the land,” he said. He never expected his interview would be for a “story to put down ethanol.”Cooper and the RFA have put together a Counterpoint Fact Sheet on AP story which refutes at least 16 direct quotes from the draft article and he says industry representatives have been in touch with the news agency. “There has been some effort to get these factual inaccuracies corrected,” said Cooper. “If the story we saw that was posted last week is the same story that gets rolled out tomorrow morning, that tells us the AP just isn’t concerned about running a factual story.”The Associated Press supplies content to thousands of print, internet, radio and television outlets around the world.

Aside from Completed Foreclosures, the News in Florida is All Good

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Related Articles Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago November 12, 2015 1,212 Views Florida still leads the nation in 12-month sum of completed foreclosures by more than double the total of the next closest state, according to CoreLogic’s September 2015 National Foreclosure Report released this week. But aside from that, the news in Florida as far as foreclosures are concerned is all good.The Sunshine State has fallen to third in foreclosure inventory rate (2.6 percent) behind New Jersey (4.6 percent) and New York (3.7 percent) and is getting closer to the national average, which was 1.2 percent during September. Florida had the highest decline of any state in foreclosure inventory year-over-year in September—a 42.3 percent drop, from 4.4 percent in September 2014.In addition, Florida’s serious delinquency rate (5.8 percent) in September was third, behind New Jersey (8.0 percent) and New York (6.5 percent), according to CoreLogic. In September 2014, Florida’s serious delinquency rate was 8.6 percent, or 2.8 percentage points higher than September 2015.”The largest improvements in the foreclosure inventory continue to be in judicial states on the East Coast such as Florida and New Jersey,” said Sam Khater, deputy chief economist for CoreLogic. “While the overwhelming majority of states are experiencing declines in their foreclosure rates, four states experienced small increases compared with a year ago.”Those four states were Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Wyoming, and New Mexico. Washington, D.C. also saw an increase in foreclosure activity. Those states, plus D.C., are typically near the bottom of the foreclosure metric list. Washington, D.C. had a lower total of completed foreclosures in the 12-month period ending September 30, 2015 (only 69) than any state. The state with the lowest total was North Dakota with 310.Florida’s 12-month sum of completed foreclosures (91,000) for September was below 100,000 again, good news for a state where 12-month completed foreclosure sums have been well above 100,000 since the crisis. In fact, the Tampa metro area, which has routinely been near the top of CoreLogic’s lists for metro areas with the most completed foreclosures over a 12-month period, was not even listed in the top 10 for September—nor was any Florida metro. The top metro area for 12-month sum of completed foreclosures in September was Atlanta, with 14,240. Despite this, Atlanta’s foreclosure inventory rate (0.7 percent) and serious delinquency rate (3.3 percent) were still below national averages in September of 1.2 percent and 3.4 percent.Click here to see the complete report.
