first_img June 4, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Disturbing development in probe of journalist’s murder May 13, 2021 Find out more Reports MexicoAmericas RSF_en 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Receive email alerts Follow the news on Mexico MexicoAmericas NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say In an earlier (so far unanswered) letter to Duron Ruiz on 18 May, the organisation called for a thorough enquiry into the prison murder of suspect Mario Medina Vázquez to determine whether it was related to Mora García murder. The journalist had several times exposed drug trafficking, “so we ask you to bear in mind that he may have been killed for that,” it said.Mora García, editor of the daily El Mañana, in Nuevo Laredo (Tamaulipas), was stabbed to death in front of his home. Nine days later, a homosexual couple who were neighbours, Mario Medina Vázquez and Hiram Olivero Ortiz, were arrested and police said Medina Vázquez confessed to killing the journalist for sexual reasons. He denied this and said he had confessed under torture. On 13 May, he was killed by a fellow inmate at the Cereso II prison in Nuevo Laredo.New developmentThe En Memoria Commission said in a 30 May 2004 report that the weapon found at the suspects’ house was not the same as the one in the autopsy report, which referred to stab wounds by a complex knife while the one from the suspects’ house was a simple one. Tamaulipas prosecutor-general Francisco Cayuela said on 27 April that DNA tests showed the simple knife was the one with the journalist’s blood on it.The commission, which obtained film of the questioning of the two suspects, also raised the torture allegations, noting that Medina Vázquez said he had been arrested at 19:00 on 26 mars while the authorities said they arrested him at 23:00. It was during this time that he said he had been tortured and threatened with death. As a US citizen, Medina Vázquez had filed a complaint about his treatment at the US consulate and US officials had formally protested.The Commission criticised the failure to investigate the torture charges, but after two reports, a meeting between Israel Castellanos Castillo, one of the two policemen accused by the suspects and suspect Oliveros Ortiz took place on 2 June. A confrontation with the other accused police officer was set for 3 June.Murdered in prisonThe commission’s report also mentions Medina Vázquez’ murder in prison, when he was stabbed more than 80 times by fellow inmate Roberto Herrera González, who was serving time for two murders and drug possession. Herrera González said at first he had killed him because he had wrongly accused him of a crime, but he then changed his story. The US consul in Nuevo Laredo, Michael Yoder, said Mexican authorities had assured him Medina Vázquez and Oliveros Ortiz had been kept in a separate cell for their own safety. He also expressed surprise that the spot where Medina Vázquez was killed had been cleaned up before police arrived, removing valuable evidence.US officials in Washington called on 17 May for an investigation into the murder. Prosecutor-general Cayuela resigned and was immediately replaced.BackgroundMora García had written several articles about the Gulf Cartel, a regional network of drug traffickers, and said police and government workers were involved. He also denounced the activities of the “zeta” groups of former police extorting money from businessmen for the drug traffickers and blamed the state government for the climate of impunity in the state.A commission delegation visited Tamaulipas from 22 to 24 April. The commission includes the Mexican groups Centro de Estudios Fronterizos y de Promoción de los Derechos Humanos (CEFPDH), Libertad de Información-México (LIMAC) and the Centro de Periodismo y Etica Pública (CEPET), as well as foreign organisations such as the PEN Club and Periodistas Frente a la Corrupción (PFC). It works closely with Reporters Without Borders. An independent commission’s report says a weapon found at the home of two suspects in the 19 March killing of journalist Roberto Javier Mora García did not match the one described in the autopsy report. “This disturbing fact throws new doubt on the seriousness of the investigation,” Reporters Without Borders said. center_img to go further Reporters Without Borders voiced new concern today about the enquiry into the killing of Mexican journalist Roberto Javier Mora García after an independent commission revealed that a weapon found at a suspect’s home was not the same as the one described in the autopsy.The press freedom organisation said it threw “new doubt on the seriousness of the investigation” into the 19 March murder and came after stories of torture during interrogation of two suspects and the death of one of them in prison. It urged prosecutor-general Ramón Duron Ruiz (of the northeastern state of Tamaulipas) to order a new examination of the weapon in view of the independent En Memoria Commission’s new information.

first_imgNewsLocal NewsPotato Market clampers in the ‘dock’By admin – August 12, 2010 1579 Linkedin Print PATRONS at the Potato Market car park, adjoining the Limerick Courthouse, have expressed outrage at what they described as a “heavy handed approach” by a designated parking control management company in clamping vehicles outside the time limit.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up However, in defence, David O’Mahony, chairman of the Market Trustees, had previously pointed out that at least a 20 minute period of grace was allowed before vehicles were clamped.He told this newspaper earlier this year that the Potato Market, through the Market Trustees, was operated as a car park to generate revenue.He added that no revenue was gained from clamping and that Mid West Parking Control, was contracted to regulate any abuse by motorists.In recent weeks, jury members attending the Circuit Court at Merchants Quay, court clerks and solicitors alike, were clamped as were many members of the general public. One complained to the Limerick Post: “My ticket lapsed by 15 minutes… I was on business in the courthouse and when I came out, my car was clamped. There was a big yellow thing on the side of my wheel, a sticker on my window and a demand to fork out money to get released. I mean, 15 minutes and I had already put over a €5 in the machine”.She alleged she got no satisfaction when she spoke to the parties involved.A solicitor at a High Court sitting in the adjoining Limerick Courthouse, said that she was hardly going to ask the judge if she could leave to put money in the meter.There are seven signs displayed advising a €90 release fee for illegally parked cars.A spokesperson for Mid West Parking Control said: “We operate at car parks that we are contracted to. We have signs stating that it is pay and display. We follow the owners rules”.An announcement posted at the car park states: “Patrons must display their ticket upright and it is in their interest that they put enough money in the machine to cover the period of time they expect to be in the car park. You cannot pay any excess when you return”.There is a a minimum payment of €1.50 per hour. A charge of €50 applies for out of hours callouts.It was claimed by a company staff member that one employee wears a protective vest against attack, because of the alleged level of anger and intimidation shown by motorists who have been clamped. Surveillance cameras are also in operation.Independent cllr, John Gilligan, said when he was chairman of the Market Trustees he was against clamping in the car park.“It’s antisocial and should be barred. During my time it was many from the legal profession that snooted parking fees and felt disgruntled that they were asked to pay. It was a major problem and although I was very much against it, it was needed”.He wants the entire area overhauled and put to a better civic use.“Limerick deserves a city plaza and we should have one. The walls around the Potato Market could be taken down to a reasonable height and the bars and gates recycled elsewhere. We need a new home for our city library and museum and the long-term plan would be to develop this area, but we should develop the square as a whole. We could have a signature work of art to commemorate the Vikings as first settlers here and Brian Boru as the first high king of Ireland”.Syringes and hypodermic needles have been found in the vicinity of the car park.Patrons who contacted the Limerick Post were shocked to experience this form of anti social behaviour, and echoed the calls of cllr Gilligan to put the area to a better civic use.* The Limerick Post has learned that since the end of July, the clamp release fee imposed by Mid West Parking Control Systems was reduced from €120 and the period of grace extended to one hour at the Potato Market car park.

But the thing is there was never a sewerage system here to begin with. It’s all lies.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The settlement beds have been abandoned in the last few years. Local people often think I am exaggerating the situation. They don’t realise that the sewage flows directly from the town into the River Deel. It is not treated first. It just goes straight off into the river. This is a criminal act.”However, in a statement this week, Irish Water say there is no discharge of untreated sewage from the plant in Askeaton.“The tanks are de-sludged approximately every six weeks as part of an ongoing maintenance programme in County Limerick where the biosolid material is removed from the bottom of the tanks during the desludging process. The plant is maintained and operated on an ongoing basis.Irish Water is currently carrying out projects around the country to upgrade waste water treatment infrastructure following decades of underinvestment. The Irish Water Business Plan to 2021 projects an investment of €1.25 billion on wastewater quality projects and a further €700 million on wastewater capacity projects.“Delivering this investment will address, as a priority, agglomerations not meeting EU requirements on wastewater treatment and capacity and ensure continued compliance across the country.“Askeaton Waste Water Treatment Plant has been assessed and, while it falls outside the highest priority treatment areas identified nationally, it will be delivered upon in coming five-year investment cycles.“A design review of all previous studies and reports on the Askeaton Scheme is complete and an options report is with Irish Water. It will progress to the next stage (detailed design and construction) where the opportunity arises within the coming investment cycles,” the Irish Water statement concluded.by Alan [email protected] Minister Patrick O’ Donovan announces opening of Limerick heritage site to the public for the first time Previous articleWin cinema ticketsNext articleLimerick suicide figures more than twice national average Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORlast_img read more

Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, announced the support for the FORM Act during Yellen’s testimony before the Committee earlier this week. Yellen also testified before the Senate Banking Committee this week. The three Nobel Prize winners to offer their support were Lars Peter Hansen (University of Chicago), Robert Lucas (University of Chicago), and Edward Prescott (Arizona State University).“So, Chair Yellen, we have three Nobel Prize winners in economics, a host of former Federal Reserve officials, some of the most renowned and respected economists in the country pretty much disagree with everything that you asserted in your three-page missive against the FORM Act,” Hensarling said before the Committee this week. “I know you’re not a fan, but I would just caution you, Chair, that when you use such apocalyptic and hyperbolic language, you might consider whether or not this undercuts your credibility as Fed chair.”The FORM Act requires the Fed to transparently communicate its monetary policy decisions to the American people by requiring the Fed to generate a monetary policy strategy of its own choosing, in order to provide the American people with more transparency about the factors that lead to the Fed’s monetary decisions. The Act would also eliminate the restrictions on the Government Accountability Office (GAO)’s ability to audit the Fed, allowing the GAO to conduct an audit of the Fed anytime there is a policy change. The bill is sponsored by Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-Michigan), who is the House Monetary Policy and Trade Subcommittee Chairman.“In no way would the legislation compromise the Fed’s independence,” the economic luminaries wrote in their letter supporting the FORM Act. “On the contrary, publically reporting a strategy helps prevent policy makers from bending under pressure and sacrificing independence. It strengthens independence by reducing or removing pressures from markets and governments to finance budget deficits or deviate from policies that enhance economic stability.”The White House issued a statement in November on the FORM Act, saying that “If the President were presented with H.R. 3189, his senior advisors would recommend that he veto the bill.”Click here to view the letter of support for the FORM act along with a list of signatories.

The 20-City Composite posted a 2.2% year-over-year gain, up from 2.1% in the previous month.Phoenix, Tampa and Charlotte reported the highest year-over-year gains among the 20 cities. In October, Phoenix led the way with a 5.8% year-over-year price increase, followed by Tampa with a 4.9% increase and Charlotte with a 4.8% increase. Twelve of the 20 cities reported greater price increases in the year ending October 2019 versus the year ending September 2019.Month-over-month, the 10-City and 20-City Composites all posted increases of 0.1% before seasonal adjustment in October. After seasonal adjustment, the National Index recorded a 0.5% month-over-month increase in October while the 10-City and 20-City Composites both posted a 0.4% increase.According to Craig J. Lazzara, Managing Director and Global Head of Index Investment Strategy at S&P Dow Jones Indices, the recent data is good news, as only one city saw year-over-year price declines.”October’s U.S. housing data continue to be reassuring,” Lazzara said. “With October’s 3.3% increase in the national composite index, home prices are currently more than 15% above the pre-financial crisis peak reached July 2006. October’s results were broad-based, as both our 10- and 20-city composites rose. Of the 20 cities in the composite, only San Francisco saw a year-over-year price decline in October.”City-focused stability was broad-based, Lazzara noted, reflecting data in 12 of 20 cities.“It is, of course, still too soon to say whether this marks an end to the deceleration or is merely a pause in the longer-term trend,” he adds.
