first_img We know you’re still recovering from Barbra Streisand coaching Daisy Ridley and Anne Hathaway as they performed “At the Ballet,” but brace yourself: Babs sang “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” with Jamie Foxx, and there’s video. Between the two commanding us to ford streams, follow rainbows, etcetera, there’s a lot to take in.

Chilean Police seize large quantity of liquid cocaine, arrest 11 suspects

first_img Use of liquid cocaine on the rise A strong response The Chilean government has reacted strongly to incursions into its territory by drug smugglers and criminal organizations. In 2011 the government announced the Northern Border Plan to increase anti-drug surveillance and interdiction along the 950-kilometer border with Peru and Bolivia. In 2013 the government allocated about $1.1 billion Chilean pesos ($2.1 million USD) to the plan. The funds were used primarily to purchase equipment, such as unmanned aerial drones (UAVs) which are used to conduct surveillance. Authorities also increased anti-drug smuggling efforts by the Investigations Police and the Narcotics Division of the Carabineros national police force were also increased. The security initiatives have achieved significant results. For example, in 2013, the Chilean National Police seized a record 37 metric tons of drugs, including 3 metric tons of cocaine. The amount of drugs seized in 2013 was a 25 percent increase over the amount of drugs seized in 2012. Chilean security forces dismantled 127 alleged drug trafficking groups in 2013, compared to 89 which were taken down in 2012. Of the drug trafficking groups dismantled in 2013, 57 were operating internationally, and 57 were engaged in domestic drug sales, authorities said. Julieta Pelcastre contributed to this article. why the best ones studied abroad Drug processing operations like the ones involved in the February arrests in Santiago are a new phenomenon in Chile, particularly in southern metropolitan areas, authorities said. Their presence could indicate both a rise in demand among Chile’s relatively affluent urban youth and a drive by criminal gangs to reduce costs and risks by processing drugs closer to the target market. The seizure of such a large amount of liquid cocaine in Chile “is evidence that there are illegal drug labs in Chile which are used to process cocaine,” said Yadira Galvez, a security analyst at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). For the most part, drug traffickers did not operate in Chile until the 1990s, Galvez said. Unlike other countries where organized crime groups transport or process drugs, Chile so far has not experienced high levels of violence linked to drug trafficking, the security analyst said. Chile accounts for 10 percent of the cocaine consumption in Latin America and the Caribbean, according to the 2011 United Nations World Drug Report. Chilean authorities recently seized 500 liters of liquid cocaine in the Santiago metropolitan area. Such a large seizure could signal an expansion of Chile’s role as a processing center for South American drugs, authorities said. Chilean security forces arrested 11 people on Feb. 22-23, 2014, in connection with the investigation. In the alleged scheme, drug traffickers smuggled the liquid cocaine into Chile from Bolivia, according to published reports. The organized crime operatives transported the liquid cocaine inside two trucks. The liquid cocaine was hidden inside containers that were labeled as cooking oil. Agents with the Anti-Narcotics Brigade of the Chilean Investigations Police seized the liquid cocaine and captured the suspects following a two-month investigation. The seizure of the liquid cocaine was one of the largest drug busts in Chile in the past ten years, authorities said. The drugs were destined for sophisticated drug labs in the capital city of Santiago, where the liquid cocaine could be converted into powder form and distributed locally, authorities believe. center_img Because it is easier to transport and difficult to detect, liquified cocaine has become increasingly popular with drug smugglers throughout South America. Half a kilogram of powder cocaine can be fully dissolved in just one liter of water and then disguised as innocent products. Authorities in Chile and elsewhere have found liquid cocaine in Bolivian wine, in Johnny Walker whiskey, in lava lamps, infused into clothing, blankets and in heavy-duty paper bags containing charcoal, among other methods. Human “mules” can carry up to a liter of liquid cocaine each when it is wrapped in latex and swallowed. Up to 90 percent of the cocaine content can be recovered and converted back into powder in drug labs after it reaches its destination. For years, Chile has long been used as a transshipment point for South American drugs that are produced in Bolivia, Peru and elsewhere and then shipped to Europe and Australia. For example, on February 14, 2014, police in Le Havre, France seized 1.4 tons of cocaine that had been hidden in tires on a cargo ship that had arrived from Valparaiso. Because of its extensive petrochemical industries, Chile has also been known as a major source for precursor chemicals used in cocaine production in Bolivia and Peru, and as a source for ephedrine used to produce methamphetamines in Mexico.

Japan’s governors want more areas cut from travel program as needed

first_imgThe central government said Thursday that it will launch the Go To Travel Campaign on Wednesday as planned, but is excluding Tokyo from the program after a recent spike in cases in the capital.”We are facing a critical phase where we have to deal with the movement (of people) in wider areas and prevent the spread of the virus at the same time,” Tokushima Gov. Kamon Iizumi, president of the National Governors’ Association, said in the opening speech, referring to a rise in nationwide infections.Read also: Japan plans to expand airport PCR testing capacity to 10,000 per dayTokyo remains the hardest-hit area with its new cases accounting for about a third of the nationwide tally. The Tokyo metropolitan government is expected to report at least 180 new infections later Sunday, Gov. Yuriko Koike said at the meeting. Japan’s prefectural governors decided on Sunday to ask the central government to consider excluding more areas from a travel campaign when necessary to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.The governors said they hope the 1.35 trillion yen ($12.6 billion) subsidy initiative aimed at sparking domestic trips will help revive their virus-hit economies.But “we have to avoid (the campaign) causing the virus to spread,” they said in proposals to the central government compiled at an online meeting to discuss responses to the coronavirus. Tokyo saw the figure reaching nearly 300 for three straight days through Saturday including a single-day record of 293 cases on Friday.The daily figures reflect the most recent totals reported by health authorities and medical institutions in the capital.Across the country, total cases stood at 24,860 Saturday, with more than 660 new cases reported, the highest since April 11, as a resurgence in infections has also become more apparent in other urban areas. The tally excludes 712 from the Diamond Princess cruise ship that was quarantined in Yokohama near Tokyo in February.The governors urged the central government to run the campaign over the long term, as some areas in the Kyushu region are not able to accept tourists any time soon in the wake of devastating floods caused by torrential train.They also asked the government for timely disclosure of information about infections at US bases in Japan after an increasing number of new cases has been reported by the US military.In Okinawa, which hosts the bulk of US military facilities in Japan, 143 military personnel have tested positive, according to the prefectural government.Topics :last_img read more
