While holders Justice and Home Affairs EU meeting in Brussels at the request of France after the attacks of EI that killed 130 people in its capital, agreed to step up controls throughout Europe, the French Parliament today approved definitively the extension for three months the state of emergency (site) declared last Friday.

there is evidence that some of the attackers were in Paris which anti-terrorist watchlists reached Europe among dozens of refugees or with false passports, the data of all travelers, including EU citizens, entering and leaving the borders of the countries of the Schengen zone will be systematically checked with the police databases .
currently, most EU citizens are hardly subjected to visual checks of the documents.
in addition, under pressure from France, the European ministers also agreed to revise the Schengen border system for these systematic checks EU citizens are mandatory and also to introduce checks biometric for those who cross borders data.
the arrival this year of hundreds of thousands of immigrants, including many Syrian refugees, and subsequent mass movements across European borders, shook the Schengen common system that allows competent authorities of the Member States to obtain information regarding certain categories of persons and objects.
security fears after what happened in Paris have also seen how states reintroducing checks borders before unheeded.
in this context, the Security Council of the UN today encouraged all countries able to take "all necessary measures" to take action against jihadists EI in Syria and Iraq, which wants to establish a caliphate.
the highest decision making body of the UN unanimously adopted a resolution driven by France in response to the attacks in Paris.
the text proposes to "step up and coordinate" the fight against terrorism, expresses the intention to expand sanctions against individuals and entities associated with EI and asked to do more to stop the flow of foreign fighters into the Middle East.
But despite that call to use "all necessary measures" against the jihadists, the resolution does not invoke chapter VII of the United Nations Charter, which traditionally provides the legal framework for the use of force.
condemns text "tougher terms" the "heinous terrorist attacks by EI" in June in the city Tunisian Susa in October in Ankara and shooting down a Russian plane over the Sinai and in Paris a week ago, as well as all other attacks committed by the group.
According to the Security Council, the EI "has the ability and intent to carry out more attacks "and represents an" unprecedented global threat to international peace and security. "
" Facing Daesh, we have humanity in common. We, the peoples of the United Nations, we have the duty to defend it, "he said today immediately after the vote Francois Delattre, the French ambassador.
Meanwhile, the French parliament today definitively approved the extension for three months the state of emergency, which had yesterday received preliminary approval in the Lower House.
the text, which was endorsed by the vast majority of legislators -336 of the 348 present, while the remaining 12-communist and environmentalists refrained from vote, was not debated at second reading in any of the two Chambers, despite the restrictions of freedoms posed.
the new law modifies an approved in 1955 when France introduced for the first time the state of emergency, and is expected to be enacted before the end of next week, Prime Minister Manuel Valls said.
the extension of the state of emergency will start from next Thursday, when the established expires by decree early on Saturday shortly after the attacks.
Upon approval, the prefect of the French department of Yonne, in northern France, declared a curfew in the town of Sens.
the measure will be in effect until next Monday from 10 pm today until 6 am (French time).
the curfew was declared after the raid on a house in Sens where illegal weapons, false documents were found and stopped several people.
Meanwhile, a spokesman for the Paris prosecutor's office, reported that the woman who died last Wednesday in a police operation against an apartment in Saint Dennis was Hasna Aitboulahcen and did not commit suicide by detonating an explosive belt, as the prosecution said in a earlier, but did not specify the conditions of his death.

Hallan repressor in Israel, but the state refuses extradition

Hallan repressor in Israel, but the state refuses extradition -

In February this year, the Argentine-born journalist Shlomo Slutzky I revealed in a documentary broadcast by Channel 1 local television that the former repressor Teodoro Hannibal Gauto , sought for Justice Argentina and Interpol for crimes against humanity, is living in Israel.

a Gauto against him "homicide, illegal imprisonment, torture and abduction" crimes he had committed during the years of bloody civil-military dictatorship that was installed in power in 1976 in Argentina.

The work of the journalist Slutzky was instrumental in locating Gauto and disseminate the moral implications of the fact that a criminal of this kind, accused of crimes against humanity, had found refuge in a country that just justifies its creation by the need for a "national home" for the Jewish people, victim of anti-Semitic persecution, especially after the Holocaust.

Thus, it is hoped that the Israeli Government hurry to cooperate with Argentina and international Justice to allow it to condemn sinister characters, as is the if Gauto.

However, although his identity was discovered, the state of Israel shows no signs of collaboration to deliver Gauto to Argentina justice to prosecute legally.

Gauto live with his family in the Mediterranean coastal city of Haifa. The fugitive, who at first had agreed to a personal interview with Slutzky, repented and gave a telephone conversation in which he said: "While I am in this country (Israel), and moderately to stretch the issue, that is, play with the theme that no extradition, I will continue here. If I go to Argentina and introduce myself I will lock in a dungeon, and I ... obviously I'm not ready for that, "he said in the televised report.

This is arousing a new wave of stupor in Israel, especially within the democratic forces of the country and, in this regard, it is worth noting the role being played by the Argentine colony. A campaign of public pressure on the Israeli Interior Ministry is developing to end the delay of the Government before the extradition of criminal.

They fear that the fugitive criminal again vanish without a trace.

Nuevo fallo extorsivo de Griesa contra la Argentina

Nuevo fallo extorsivo de Griesa contra la Argentina -

El juez Thomas Griesa dijo este viernes que repondrá el stay que pedía el Gobierno Nacional para que se faciliten las negociaciones con los acreedores que mantenien bonos en default.

El magistrado dejó pendiente su sentencia a dos cosas. Que "la República derogue todos los obstáculos legislativos a arreglo con los tenedores de bonos, incluyendo el Bloqueo de la Ley y la Ley de Pago Soberano". También pidió que a todos los bonistas que entran al acuerdo con la República o lo hagan hasta el 29 febrero de 2016, "la República debe hacer el pago completo de acuerdo con los términos concretos de cada acuerdo de este tipo".

"Si el Tribunal de Apelaciones devuelve el permiso a este tribunal para que le conceda de la República su petición de nulidad, los requerimientos serán levantadas de forma automática una vez cumplidas estas dos condiciones", sentenció Griesa.

"Por último, el tribunal desea señalar que el auxiliar, Daniel Pollack, se ha dedicado en un grado notable a la realización de sus funciones, y él lo ha hecho con gran habilidad. Sus esfuerzos, sin duda, serán de gran valor en el resolución final de este litigio. Él tiene el agradecimiento de la Corte", agregó Griesa.

 

Elogios de Griesa a Macri

"La elección del presidente Macri marcó un punto de inflexión en la actitud y las acciones de la República. Desde la elección, el gobierno del presidente Macri ha declarado sistemáticamente su deseo de resolver los conflictos y volver a abrir el país a los inversores extranjeros (...) Lo más importante, la República ha mostrado una disposición de buena fe para negociar con los holdouts. Bajo las administraciones argentinas anteriores, los demandantes han tenido que aceptar recortes severos en el valor de sus bonos, o bien generar infructuosos esfuerzos para adjuntar propiedad para satisfacer sus juicios", sostiene el juez marcando las diferencias con el gobierno de Cristina Fernández. (Ver: Argentina ofreció a un fondo buitre más de lo que reclamaba)

Griesa afirma que aunque el tribunal no se pronuncia sobre la "razonabilidad de la propuesta de la República", "el tribunal reconoce serios esfuerzos de la República para negociar y su sorprendente cambio de actitud" con el presidente Macri.

Y termina diciendo que quitando la medida que restringía al cumplimiento del pago de los bonos a la Argentina "podría servir al interés público mediante el cese de los efectos colaterales que tienen sobre terceros".

Standard & Poor`s elevará calificación de la deuda argentina

Standard & Poor`s elevará calificación de la deuda argentina -

La calificadora Standard & Poor's podrá subir la calificación de la deuda argentina en moneda extranjera a las categorías CCC o B en caso de que el Gobierno de Mauricio Macri logre cerrar un acuerdo con los fondos buitre, al tiempo que también mantiene en análisis para esa revisión la implementación de las reformas económicas anunciadas desde el 10 de diciembre.
En su Reporte de deuda soberana en América Latina y el Caribe 2016, Standard & Poor's planteó que si la Argentina “subsana el incumplimiento de pago de 2014, ya sea mediante el pago, cambio u otro acuerdo, volveríamos a evaluar la posición crediticia general del país, y probablemente subiríamos la calificación en moneda extranjera a las categorías de ‘CCC’ o ‘B’”.
“La nueva calificación dependería en gran medida de nuestra evaluación de la capacidad del gobierno para implementar sus reformas económicas y sobre cualquier posible amenaza legal persistente que pudiera afectar su capacidad para servir deuda futura”, destacó la consultora.
Argentina es el único soberano que mantiene la calificación de incumplimiento selectivo en su deuda
comercial, por parte de S&P, tras las resoluciones judiciales de mediados de 2014 en Estados Unidos, que bloquearon la capacidad del gobierno para pagar a los acreedores externos de los bonos emitidos después de la reestructuración de deuda en 05 y 2010.
El informe difundido esta tarde proyectó que el nivel de endeudamiento bruto de los 28 países que
califica en América Latina y el Caribe será equivalente a 381.000 millones de dólares en 2016, ligeramente menor que en 2015.
Sin embargo, la proyección de la calificadora es que tal endeudamiento alcanzará 7,4 por ciento del producto interno bruto (PIB) de la región, desde un 6,8 por ciento estimado el año anterior, por lo que resaltó que “la mayoría de los países tendrán mayores déficit fiscales en comparación con el del año pasado, consistente con un nivel de endeudamiento más alto como porcentaje del PIB”.
El análisis también planteó que una fuerte depreciación del tipo de cambio en los países deudores más grandes, como Brasil y México, reduce el valor en dólares de su deuda pública adicional, lo que contribuye a una ligera reducción en el valor en dólares total del endeudamiento soberano en 2016.

Greece again amid disenchantment vote

Greece again amid disenchantment vote -

Early elections are presented as the most competitive in the last 15 years, with all polls giving a tie between Syriza and ND , which would prevent the majority victory and force agree coalition government.

in Greece not share figures are given, but analysts suggest that there may be a high abstention due to the general disenchantment perceived in the street.

Two hours after the opening of polling stations, had voted mostly elderly, more early risers, he reported the news agency EFE .

"I certainly would not have voted and I think there will be many people either. why? they're all alike, are all clowns who tell us the same lies for years. they deliver a once the country to Germany and have the party in peace, "he said indignantly a taxi driver 42, who regretted not see future for him and his family.

Nothing in this occasion reminds the atmosphere that existed in January just eight months ago, when Syriza was the favorite of all surveys and finally touched an absolute majority.

Tsipras was then seen by many as the last hope to stand up to Europe and straighten the country.

Now just keep this aura, as became apparent at the time of voting.

Ten minutes after the announced time, Tsipras arrived at his polling station, where this time he expected a small group of supporters and a number of much less means than in the two previous appointments with the ballot boxes.

polling stations close at 19 pm (13 in Argentina) when disclosed surveys mouth urn.

the first official results will begin to release two hours later and it is estimated that at that time has been retold around 10%.

Towards the Greek midnight may be taken a more or less clear picture of the winner, as it will be scrutinized around 50% of the vote, but it depends on the parties that are close to 3%, the barrier to entry in Parliament.

If two or more parties that are close to this percentage, it may not be a definitive result until early Monday.

the advance of the elections, after only seven months in office of Tsipras, came after his resignation last month shortly after suffering a rebellion of the more radical wing of the party by the bailout deal with the European creditors of the country, the third since 2010, signed although a majority rejected it in a referendum just days before.

El gobierno de Dilma Rousseff recurrió a la Corte por Lula

El gobierno de Dilma Rousseff recurrió a la Corte por Lula -

La presentación fue hecha el sábado, y divulgada este domingo, por la Abogacía General de la Unión (AGU) al ministro del STF Teori Zavascki, quien tiene que resolver dos pedidos de nulidad de la asunción de Lula y además es el encargado en la máxima corte de los casos de los investigados con fueros en la Operación Lava Jato, sobre la corrupción en Petrobras, que en primera instancia encabeza el juez federal Sérgio Moro.

El abogado general de la Unión, José Eduardo Cardozo, afirmó en su presentación que el pedido de unificación de todas las causas procura "evitar la existencia contradictoria de la resolución del tema".

El viernes, el juez del STF Gilmar Mendes, un reconocido opositor al Partido de los Trabajadores (PT) gobernante, anuló, tal como había anticipado, la designación de Lula al considerarla un "salvoconducto" para ganar fueros y ser investigado por el máximo tribunal en lugar del juez de primera instancia.

Mendes devolvió en forma cautelar la causa a Moro, pero esa decisión debe ser sometida al voto del plenario de la corte suprema, que esta semana no tenía actividad programada a raíz del feriado de Semana Santa: es por eso que la votación en el Supremo Tribunal Federal sobre la legalidad de la asunción de Lula puede postergarse hasta el lunes 28.

El expediente de la investigación en lo que se refiere a Lula está en manos del ministro de la corte Zavascki, quien lo recibió de Moro apenas Lula fue nombrado ministro, debido a que tiene fueros.

Moro tiene un pedido de prisión contra Lula hecho por la fiscalía de San Pablo por supuestamente ocultar bienes.

Rousseff acusó a Moro de haberle realizado espionaje ilegal al revelar una grabación de una conversación en la que ella le dice a Lula que firme el acta de asunción del cargo de ministro "en caso de que haya necesidad".

La presidenta nombró a Lula en el medio de su peor momento de gestión, desde que asumió su segundo mandato el 1 de enero de 2015 y con el vicepresidente Michel Temer preparando un gobierno sustituto para el caso de que se apruebe el juicio político en su contra que ya se abrió en la Cámara de Diputados.

El 68 por ciento de los brasileños aprueba el juicio político contra Rousseff, basado en supuesta irregularidad en la ley de responsabilidad fiscal del presupuesto 2015 y en la acusación del senador Delcidio Amaral, que le atribuye haber accionado para obstruir las investigaciones de la operación Lava Jato, según una encuesta del Instituto Datafolha publicada este domingo.

La mandataria niega las acusaciones y el rechazo al juicio político que aprueban la oposición, aliados del gobierno y las cámaras empresariales, es considerado como un intento de golpe de estado por parte del PT y sus aliados, que se manifestaron el viernes en las calles de todo el país, en la cual participó a Lula y llamó a la paz social.

Rechazan incluir sospechas de corrupción en juicio a Dilma

Rechazan incluir sospechas de corrupción en juicio a Dilma -

La jueza del Supremo Tribunal Federal (STF) de Brasil Rosa Webeer rechazó incluir en el proceso del juicio político contra la presidenta Dilma Rousseff unas acusaciones que vinculan a la mandataria con la corrupción en Petrobras, informaron fuentes judiciales.

La magistrada rechazó anoche el pedido del diputado opositor Arnaldo Faria de Sá para que se anexaran a los cargos sobre maniobras fiscales -que sustentan el trámite del juicio- el testimonio de implicados en las corruptelas en la petrolera estatal, según los cuales Rousseff sabía lo que ocurría y trató de obstruir la investigación.

"No cabe intervención judicial en el trabajo parlamentario en curso", afirmó la jueza en un escrito, en el que también señaló que "el propio tema pende de decisión definitiva en el ámbito de la votación del informe que será producido en la comisión especial", lo que podría ocurrir el próximo 11 de abril.

La comisión parlamentaria que analiza si existen méritos jurídicos para que Rousseff sea sometida a un juicio político ya había rechazado la semana pasada la incorporación de las denuncias que relacionan a la presidenta con el esquema de Petrobras.

Esa comisión, formada por 65 diputados, elaborará un documento que deberá ser aprobado para pasar al pleno de la Cámara Baja, donde necesita el respaldo de una mayoría calificada de dos tercios para proseguir hasta el Senado.

La Cámara Alta decidirá por mayoría simple si archiva la causa o inicia el propio juicio político, en cuyo caso la presidenta deberá apartarse del cargo durante 180 días.
Ése será el plazo que tendrá el Senado para concluir el proceso y durante el cual Rousseff será sustituida por el vicepresidente Michel Temer, que completaría el mandato hasta el 1 de enero de 2019 si la jefa de Estado es finalmente destituida.

La candidata presidencial Keiko Fujimori se consolidó en el primer puesto tras los comicios de Perú, con un 39,46% de votos, mientras que el exministro Pedro Pablo Kucyznski quedó en el segundo lugar con 23,73%, según datos oficiales cuando se ha escrutado el 66,82 % de las actas.

Sobre ella pesa todavía la herencia de su padre, Alberto Fujimori, que cumple condena por crímenes de lesa humanidad y corrupción en sus diez años de gobierno (190-00).

La Cámara de Diputado de Brasil aprobó anoche la continuidad del proceso para enjuiciar a la presidenta Dilma Rousseff. Ahora el trámite pasó a la Cámara de Senadores, que tiene diez días para emitir dictamen al respecto. (Ver: Diputados aprobó el impeachment contra Dilma Rousseff)

Ese dictamen debe ser sometido a votación por el plenario del Senado, donde se necesita mayoría simple (al menos 41 votos sobre 81 legisladores totales) para que se abra el juicio.

Si en esa votación -para la cual no hay plazo establecido- el Senado ratificara el juicio político, Rousseff debe dejar el cargo inmediatamente y por un término máximo de 180 días, durante los cuales será juzgada.

En ese ínterin, el Poder Ejecutivo debe quedar a cargo del vice presidente Michel Temer.

En la votación final, en la que se decidiría si Rousseff es condenada o absuelta, el Senado estará presidido por el titular del Supremo Tribunal Federal (STF, corte suprema), Ricardo Lewandowski.

En esa votación, para que la mandataria sea condenada -y, por lo tanto, destituida- serán necesarios los votos de al menos dos tercios (54) de los senadores.

Si Rousseff fuera condenada, la destitución será inmediata y ella no podría aspirar a un cargo electivo durante ocho años. En tanto, Temer completará el mandato hasta el 31 de diciembre de 2018.

En cambio, si Rousseff fuera absuelta, reasumirá el cargo sin demora y será ella quien complete el mandato.

Morales acusó a EEUU de usar la droga para intervenir

Morales acusó a EEUU de usar la droga para intervenir -

El presidente de Bolivia, Evo Morales, acusó a Estados Unidos de usar la guerra contra las drogas como una "excusa" para intervenir y controlar a otros países ricos en recursos naturales, y exigió el desmantelamiento del Departamento Estadounidense Antidrogas (DEA) y de bases militares en el mundo, porque donde se instalan, "crece el narcotráfico".

En su intervención en la cumbre sobre drogas de Naciones Unidas (ONU), Morales destacó el fracaso de esas políticas y apuntó a Washington como el principal responsable.

"Desde la década del 80 la mal llamada guerra a las drogas nos ha llevado a un escenario que sistemáticamente violentó la soberanía de los países y deterioró las condiciones de salud pública y seguridad interna", denunció.

Durante su discurso dijo que, según datos de la ONU, el consumo de las drogas en el mundo se incrementó 40 por ciento en las últimas décadas y se calcula que 246 millones de personas, de entre 15 y 64 años de edad, consumieron drogas ilícitas durante 2013.

"La tasa del consumo de cocaína en Estados Unidos es de 1,6 por ciento, mientras que la media mundial es de 0,4 por ciento", precisó y criticó la lucha antidroga global y la moral de ese país, que a su juicio no realiza acciones para reducir ese flagelo y se ocupa de "certificar y des-certificar a los países".

Aseguró que en los lugares en los que se instala la DEA y bases militares de ese país, "crece el narcotráfico, la delincuencia, los gobiernos privatizadores, los sistemas judiciales y policíacos de la narcocorrupción, la riqueza ilegal, elites millonarias corruptas, secreto bancario y criminalización de la hoja de coca".

Para Morales, tras el fin de la Guerra Fría, Estados Unidos "creó, con el problema de las drogas, la excusa para aplicar una lógica imperialista" en regiones como Latinoamérica.

"El imperio ha utilizado está guerra hipócrita", aseguró el presidente boliviano, que acusó a Washington de usar una política "intervencionista" en zonas ricas de recursos naturales "para el control y saqueo de los mismos".

Así, pidió a la Asamblea General de la ONU "acciones concretas" para que las drogas dejen de usarse "como pretexto de dominación".

"Disolver la DEA, cerrar las bases militares norteamericanas, acabar con el intervencionismo, acabar con la certificación unilateral, aprobar una resolución para terminar de una vez por todas con el secreto bancario", enumeró.

Al mismo tiempo, defendió los resultados de las políticas sobre drogas de su gobierno, que han conseguido reducir los cultivos de coca a su nivel más bajo en diez años, aseguró.

"Con la aplicación de nuestra política -tras la expulsión de la DEA-, hemos logrado disminuir entre 2011 y 2014 un 34 por ciento el cultivo de hoja de coca, alcanzando una superficie neta de 20.400 hectáreas, así lo certifica la oficina de las ONU contra el delito", precisó y resaltó que en 2015 Bolivia logró un récord regional.

Morales cerró su discurso mostrando una hoja de coca y asegurando que la planta "ha sido víctima de los intereses del narcotráfico y el capitalismo".

"La hoja de coca es nuestro alimento saludable y nutritivo, es nuestra medicina, parte de nuestro espíritu comunitario, cultura e identidad. Es nuestra ofrenda para la vida y no para la muerte", terminó.

Pérez Esquivel dijo que hay golpe en marcha contra Rousseff

Pérez Esquivel dijo que hay golpe en marcha contra Rousseff -

El activista argentino y Premio Nobel de la Paz en 1980, Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, causó gran revuelo en el Senado de Brasil al denunciar que existe un "golpe" en marcha contra la presidenta brasileña, Dilma Rousseff, lo cual generó fuertes críticas por parte de la oposición que respalda al juicio político de la mandataria, que puede ser suspendida de su cargo el 11 de mayo.

La visita al Senado ocurrió luego de que el coordinador del Servicio de Paz y Justicia (Serpaj) fuera recibido en el Palacio del Planalto por la presidenta Rouseff. Tras la reunión, Pérez Esquivel condenó el "golpe de Estado encubierto" en marcha en Brasil y alertó sobre sus posibles consecuencias en América Latina.

"Esto es un golpe de Estado encubierto, un golpe blanco como ya se hizo en Honduras o Paraguay, la misma metodología que no necesita de Fuerzas Armadas están utilizando aquí en Brasil", dijo.

Igualmente, insistió en hacer un llamamiento "para que no se interrumpa el proceso constitucional brasileño ya que sería un daño no apenas para su pueblo sino para toda América Latina".

Según Pérez Esquivel, la "metodología del golpe blanco incluye al descrédito generado por los medios de comunicación" para justificar cargos contra la presidenta.
Rousseff está acusada por la oposición en el Congreso de haber incurrido en maniobras presupuestarias, lo cual según el gobierno no configura delito y forma parte de un "golpe".

Pérez Esquivel también alertó sobre las consecuencias que la asunción del vicepresidente en rebeldía Michel Temer podría causar en las relaciones sudamericanas, entre los bloques como el Mercosur y la Unión de Naciones Suramericanas (Unasur).

Más tarde, Pérez Esquivel cruzó la calle y fue hasta el Senado federal, donde causó gran revuelo. Invitado a decir unas palabras por el senador Paulo Paim, del gobernante Partido de los Trabajadores(PT) y ocasional presidente de la sesión, Pérez Esquivel repitió la palabra "golpe" y comparó la situación en Brasil con la destitución de los presidentes Manuel Zelaya de Honduras y Fernando Lugo en Paraguay.

"Espero que salga lo mejor de este recinto para el bien de la democracia y la vida del pueblo de Brasil", dijo el dirigente de derechos humanos.

Una vez fuera del edificio, Pérez Esquivel fue repudiado por los opositores: El senador Ataídes Oliveira, del Partido de la Social Democracia Brasileña (PSDB), dijo que fue un ataque "a la soberanía" brasileña.

"Estoy indignado con lo que ocurrió en este parlamento, pido que retiren la palabra golpe de las actas", sostuvo el legislador, a lo que el oficialista Paim defendió haber convocado a Pérez Esquivel a "apenas decir unas palabras" por tratarse de una personalidad política mundial.

El derechista Demócratas también reaccionó con el jefe del bloque, Ronaldo Caiado, miembro de la Comisión de Juicio Político contra Rousseff.

"Esto no fue casualidad. No podemos ser sorprendidos por este montaje premeditado. Este señor (por el Nobel argentino) vino a hacer una estrategia", sostuvo Caiado.

Organismos internacionales defienden postura de Dilma

Organismos internacionales defienden postura de Dilma -

El proceso de juicio político a la presidenta de Brasil, Dilma Rousseff, carece de base jurídica, afirmó en el Senado brasileño el secretario general de la Organización de Estados Americanos (OEA), Luis Almagro.
Una posición similar asumió el presidente de la Corte Interamericana de Derechos Humanos (CorteIDH), Roberto Caldas.
"La denuncia contra la presidenta no presenta ningún juicio de indicio de crímenes de responsabilidad y mucho menos de certezas", sostuvo Almagro, excanciller de Uruguay, durante una audiencia en la Comisión de Derechos Humanos del Senado, dijo la agencia española EFE.
Para el brasileño Caldas, el hecho de algunos diputados que evaluaron la admisión de las denuncias contra Rousseff hayan manifestado su posición antes de la votación en esa instancia constituye una irregularidad, debido a que debían actuar "como jueces y no como parlamentarios".
Almagro y Caldas participaron de la audiencia el mismo día que el presidente interino de la Cámara de Diputados, Waldir Maranhao, decidió suspender el proceso tras aceptar "vicios" denunciados por la Abogacía General del Estado, que defiende a Rousseff.
Pero la decisión de Maranhao no fue acatada por el Senado, que aseguró que seguirá con el trámite del juicio.

Historic agreement in the WTO favor Argentina

Historic agreement in the WTO favor Argentina -

The Ministerial Conference World Trade Organization (WTO) arrived at an agreement with regard to the elimination of subsidies that are intended for agricultural exports, a move that will be "very beneficial for our country and for all nations in developing" that specialize in this type of production, said tonight the Foreign Ministry.

the agreement was reached at the meeting that the WTO carries out in Nairobi, the Kenyan capital.

These subsidies are one of the most distorting forms of production and trade. Argentina, along with other agro-exporting countries as its Mercosur partners, African nations, Australia and New Zealand, has historically demanded their removal and this time the national delegation played a leading role in achieving this objective role.

Negotiations WTO launched in Doha in 01, had this purpose in its work program, although until today without great success.
the result of the agreement reached in Nairobi "equates the rules governing agricultural goods to that of industrial, for which subsidies were eliminated 55 years ago, "said the Foreign Ministry in a statement.

Thus a discriminatory situation is repaired detriment mainly of exporting developing countries that do not subsidize its agricultural sector, as in the case of Argentina.

"This achievement will add momentum to continue negotiations on the other two areas of agriculture in which no progress has been made yet as reducing subsidies to domestic production and greater access to markets where our products face unfair competition and barriers to access, especially in countries heavily subsidize their agriculture as the United States and the European Union, "added the portfolio leads Susana Malcorra.

the Nairobi Ministerial Conference decided the complete elimination of these subsidies in developed countries from today, December 19, 2015, and in developing countries since late 2018.

Obama: "El ataque es un caso de extremismo vernáculo"

Obama: "El ataque es un caso de extremismo vernáculo" -

En una rueda de prensa en el Salón Oval, Barack Obama señaló que el ataque en la disco de Orlando fue un caso de "extremismo vernáculo" y agregó que el supuesto atacante "estuvo inspirado en varias informaciones extremistas que fueron diseminadas en internet".

El presidente norteamericano comparó el ataque al boliche Pulse, donde murieron 50 personas y otras 53 resultaron heridas, con lo ocurrido en San Bernardino (California) a finales del pasado año, cuando una pareja también influenciada por esta ideología acabó con la vida de 14 personas e hirió a otras 22.

"En este punto, no vemos una evidencia clara de que el atacante haya sido dirigido externamente", dijo el mandatario y agregó que "no hay evidencia directa que haya sido parte de un plan de mayor escala".

"Parece que en el último minuto, él anunció su lealtad a ISIS (el nombre oficial estadounidense para el Estado Islámico, EI).

Sin embargo, no hay evidencia hasta ahora de que en realidad era dirigida por el EI, y en este momento no hay evidencia directa que él era parte de un plan más amplio", dijo Obama.

El presidente estadounidense también sostuvo que aún no han determinado cuáles fueron las motivaciones del presunto autor pero dijo que, según los datos recabados, se trata de un caso de "terrorismo vernáculo" y que los investigadores están "considerando todas las posibilidades".

"Aunque luchemos contra el EI y otras organizaciones extremistas en el extranjero, e interrumpamos complots (terroristas), uno de los mayores retos que vamos a tener es esta propaganda que le llega a individuos que terminan motivados para entrar en acción", consideró.

En este sentido, Obama mostró su preocupación por el problema añadido de que estas personas radicalizadas tengan "un acceso fácil" a "armas muy poderosas", como las empleadas por el autor de la matanza.

Pensamos que es terrorismo e ignoramos el problema que tenemos con las armas. Tenemos que ir tras las organizaciones terroristas y extremistas, pero también tenemos que asegurarnos de que a esta gente no le resulta fácil obtener este tipo de armas", remarcó.

Reino Unido vota si permanece o se va de la Unión Europea

Reino Unido vota si permanece o se va de la Unión Europea -

Los británicos votan este jueves en un histórico referéndum para decidir la permanencia o la salida del Reino Unido de la Unión Europea (UE).

Un número récord de personas -casi 46,5 millones- están registrados para participar en la votación. Los votantes registrados incluyen británicos de Inglaterra, Gales, Escocia, Irlanda del Norte y Gibraltar, enclave británico en la costa sur de España.

Los sondeos muestran una nación dividida sobre el llamado Brexit. Mientras Londres está mayoritariamente a favor de quedarse, el centro del país es euroescéptico. . Escocia y, en menor medida, Gales, son partidarios de permanecer en la Unión Europea.

El primer ministro David Cameron ha hecho campaña por la permanencia en la UE, apoyado por la City de Londres, la mayoría de los empresarios británicos y el Fondo Monetario Internacional.

“Más fuertes porque si nos vamos reduciremos nuestro país y nuestra habilidad para lograr cosas en este mundo. Más a salvo, porque luchamos contra el terrorismo y contra el crimen y contra el cambio climático mejor si nos levantamos juntos para lograr lo mejor para todos, porque necesitamos mantener el acceso a un mercado de 500 millones de personas que crea empleo e inversión, el sustento que necesita nuestro país y nuestras familias”, argumentó Cameron.

Los centros de votación en todo el Reino Unido abrieron a las 7:00 y cerrarán a las 22:00. Los primeros resultados se conocerán a alrededor de la medianoche. Se espera que el resultado final se anuncie la mañana del viernes.

El Reino Unido es miembro de la Unión Europea (y uno de sus precursores) desde 1973.

 

Nerviosismo provoca la compra masiva de euros

El nerviosismo se ha traducido en una compra compulsiva de euros. El Banco de Inglaterra difundió ayer un informe en el que alerta que la salida del Reino Unido de la UE provocaría una devaluación de la libra frente al euro y frente al dólar.

Una depreciación de la moneda que ha provocado un insólito aumento de cambio. Según datos de la Oficina Postal, la venta global de divisas- euros y dólares- ha aumentado un 74% durante el fin de semana con respecto al mismo periodo del año anterior.
