The Military and National Police are combating the remnants of the Shining Path in the VRAEM, where the terrorist organization has partnered with narco-traffickers and illegal growers of coca to use drug trafficking revenues to funds its terrorist operations. A Peruvian Special Forces battalion comprised of Military personnel and National Police officers captured four suspects in connection with the seizure of 420 kilograms of cocaine in the Ayacucho region on January 16. Peruvian security forces have maintained a record of success over the past several years in their efforts against drug trafficking. In 2014, Peruvian law enforcement destroyed a national yearlyrecord of 30,349 hectares of coca crops, topping its goal of 30,000 hectares. That achievement prevented 233,000 kilograms of cocaine from reaching the streets, according to Interior Minister Daniel Urresti. The previous year, law enforcement and security forces eradicated a then-record 24,000 hectares of coca after destroying 14,234 hectares in 2012. The operation occurred in the village of Santa Rosa in the district of Llochegua, located in the Apurimac, Ene and Mantaro Rivers Valley (VRAEM), which is the world’s top region for cultivating coca, the main ingredient used to produce cocaine. There, Special Forces seized 14 sacks filled with cocaine and took the drugs to a Military base in Pichari in the Province of La Convención. During the raid, the Soldiers and police officers also seized several weapons, including a submachine gun and communications equipment. Military authorities did not immediately identify the suspects or say what countries they are from.

They also shadow managers to observe how they deal with both operational issues and sensitive personnel matters.In addition candidates spend time in every department of the organization. “We didn’t realize that aspect of the training would be so productive, but it has created a stronger synergy between the branches and back-office departments,” says Weber, a CUES member. “Branch managers who’ve been through LAUNCH are so efficient in working with other departments and in helping their employees understand why it’s important to work productively with them.” continue reading »last_img read more

Police accused of ethics violation in Novel acid attack case

Police accused of ethics violation in Novel acid attack case

first_img“Everything related to the investigation was under his responsibility, including the allegedly lost evidence, which looks like an action to cover up the crime,” Kurnia Ramadhan, a spokesperson for Novel’s advocacy team, said in a statement on Tuesday.Read also: KPK calls for maximum sentence for Novel attackers amid low-sentence demandAmong the lost evidence were fingerprints from the bottle and glass reportedly used by the perpetrators to carry the acidic solution, as stated by then-Jakarta Police spokesperson Sr. Comr. Argo Yuwono in August 2017. The bottle and the glass were not included in the case’s evidence list.“Witnesses and the victim previously confirmed that the police found the bottle and the glass at the crime scene on the same day of the attack,” Kurnia said, adding that the fingerprints would not have disappeared in such a short period of time. Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) senior investigator Novel Baswedan’s advocacy team has urged the National Police to investigate an alleged professional ethics violation by the legal team representing two police officers accused of attacking Novel with acid.The advocacy team accused National Police legal division head Insp. Gen. Rudy Heriyanto Adi Nugroho of misusing his authority to hide evidence and cover up the crime allegedly committed by his fellow police officers, Chief Brig. Ronny Bugis and Brig. Rahmat Kadir Mahulette, who are standing trial for allegedly assaulting Novel in April 2017.At the time of the incident, Rudy was the Jakarta Police’s general crime division head. He was responsible for handling the investigation of the crime scene. He is currently leading the legal team representing Ronny and Rahmat in court. Argo said in October 2017 that investigators had gathered 400 CCTV recordings from cameras located within a 500-meter radius of the crime scene.“However, witnesses and the victim claimed the police had not looked into several high-resolution CCTV cameras installed around the victim’s house, which allegedly captured the perpetrators’ faces and their escape routes,” said Kurnia.The team argued that the investigators had not revealed their findings from a process known as cell tower dump surveillance, a technique used to identify suspects through communications intercepted around the scene of a crime.At a hearing on April 30, the North Jakarta District Court presented the robe worn by Novel during the attack. Novel’s advocacy team, however, noticed a rip on the robe, which the police claimed was a result of a forensics investigation.“The victim was never provided information about the forensic investigation. It should be documented,” Kurnia said.Read also: Jokowi hopes for ‘fair’ verdict in Novel Baswedan’s acid attack trial: State PalaceThe advocacy team and other activists have criticized the National Police for giving legal assistance to the two defendants, citing a potential conflict of interest in the legal process.Prosecutors have demanded a one-year prison sentence for Rahmat and Ronny for their alleged roles in the attacked against Novel Baswedan. The acid attack caused severe damage to the KPK investigator’s left eye.Activists and the public have decried the suggested sentence, questioning the legal team’s argument that the defendants had no intention of committing such a crime and that the attack was not planned, despite the fact that Rahmat had scouted Novel’s house several days before.Topics :last_img read more

County reduces amount paid out for workers’ comp

County reduces amount paid out for workers’ comp

first_imgFor the second consecutive year, workers’ compensation and litigation costs have dropped in Los Angeles County, where officials have cracked down on abuses and boosted wellness efforts, such as offering fitness bonuses for firefighters and lifeguards. After paying out $408 million in fiscal 2003-04, the county had its total costs drop to $358 million in 2005-06, officials said Thursday. Chief Administrative Officer David Janssen said county and state workers’ compensation reforms and stepped-up attention contributed to the drop. “Departments specifically identified risk managers that we can work with, focusing on return-to-work programs and working as a whole organization to continue to monitor and drive down the costs,” he said. The annual risk-management report found that workers’ compensation costs dropped from $324 million in 2003-04 to $263 million last fiscal year. The report also found that the county’s total liability for workers’ compensation costs dropped 35 percent in that period, to $2.4 billion. But while the county’s legal expenses fell from $49 million to $45 million in that period, settlements and judgment payments jumped from $26 million to $38 million. Chief Deputy County Counsel Donovan Main said a $3 million sheriff’s settlement, a $4.5 million medical-malpractice case and $2.3 million in legal fees in a hospital-closure case drove up the costs. “Normally, we don’t have that combination of large-magnitude cases,” Main said. Risk Manager Rocky Armfield said the $61 million drop in workers’ comp costs is significant because the county has more than 95,000 employees and about 24,500 open workers’ compensation claims. The county has aggressively worked to combat fraud and abuse and has encouraged employees to come back to work to perform light duties. The county Fire Department also has embraced a Fitness For Life program that offers firefighters, lifeguards and their nonunion management counterparts a 3 percent bonus for participating. At the Sheriff’s Department, workers’ compensation costs have dropped from $100 million in 2003-04 to $84 million last fiscal year. “We have been aggressively pursuing anything that looks like, or might be, fraud,” said Chief Bill McSweeney, who oversees the Risk Management and Internal Affairs divisions. Sheriff Lee Baca hired 10 retired detectives to conduct surveillance on employees and McSweeney said the department has reviewed more than 1,000 cases. McSweeney said the detectives’ work is sending a “big message” to employees. “When we call somebody up and say, We have reason to believe you were playing basketball at the park last week and you told us you couldn’t walk. Which one is it? – We often get a response of, I’m feeling much better now. I’ll come back to work.” troy.anderson@dailynews.com (213) 974-8985160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
