Borders are not Barriers

first_img Interview with Admiral José Cueto Aservi, Chief of the Joint Command of the Armed Forces of Peru In an exclusive interview with Diálogo, during the IV South American Defense Conference (SOUTHDEC 2012), held in Bogotá, Colombia, from July 24 – 26, Admiral José Cueto, Chief of the Joint Command of the Peruvian Armed Forces, discussed issues of national security and the need to create a regional body to fight drug trafficking, among other topics. Diálogo: What is the main challenge that Peru is presently facing, as it relates to national security? Admiral José Cueto: We support public safety during events, such as social or pro environmental movements that unfold every day in more complex ways around the countrydue. More directly, our Armed Forces are bound to providing a solution to a targeted area called the Valley of the Apurimac, Ene and Mantaro river valley (VRAEM), in the center of the country, where some remnants of terrorists groups remain, and who have been associated with drug traffickers. If you take into account the difficult geography of the area, our operations there have great magnitude and complexitynot only of the military but all levels of the state. Diálogo: But is there an exception in the constitution, like in other countries, such as Brazil and El Salvador, that allows the Armed Forces to assist the police in certain cases, if the president requires it? Adm. Cueto: Yes, our constitution provides that only with the authorization and request of the president, will the Armed Forces act in support of the police. Or if it totally exceeds or surpasses the Police Force, which for example is happening in the VRAEM, where the Armed Forces are already taking complete control and the police are coming to support them, which in this case, are handled by the Joint Command of the Armed Forces. Diálogo: You said in your presentation that you believed it is important to have a regional body to combat drug trafficking. Can you relate to this issue? Adm. Cueto: I have tried to make it understood, that in the same way as those involved in drug trafficking and transnational organized crime recognize no boundaries, we should have one single body that could be integrated with the goal to establish policies, and thereby have real mechanisms of action against this organized struggle. It is not just, for example, in the case of Peru, where we are fighting against drug trafficking, illegal logging, and illegal mining, which is devastating the environment, but these crimes, have no borders, and they should be dealt with by the entities comprised of all the involved countries, working side by side, without looking at “borders”, and always respecting the sovereignty of every nation. But this has to be well articulated, so that borders are not a barrier to combat these transnational crimes, terrorism, drug trafficking, illegal mining, illegal logging and others which now are in collusion, not only here but also in Colombia and Bolivia, etc. Now, this not only requires that the military establishments think alike, but also that the political classes basically think alike, I know it’s hard, but at some point it has to happen. Diálogo: Would it be something like the Joint Interagency Task Force – South (JIATF-S)? Adm. Cueto: I mentioned to General Fraser [Douglas Fraser, Commander of the U.S. Southern Command] that it would be a type of JIATF-S, which could take the lead, or any other interrelating mechanism, such as the ones we are now managing in South America, through UNASUR, CARSI, CARICOM. Let there be a convergence of views in a possible meeting, where the only common theme is the fight against organized crime. I don’t think this is difficult, and no one in their right mind would object to that, but this then allows an operational level to create a great information reception center in an automated, digital form, allowing different organizations to activate, whether local, a particular country, or transnational, against such scourge. I see no other way, but we will still carry on with what we have, each country will try to do things in its own way. I’ve been impressed with the pictures presented by General Fraser on the amount of illegal movements. Sure, there are results, but they are few, because if there was a movement of 120,000 tons of drugs and only 20,000 tons have been caught, we still have a lot of work to do. Diálogo: The Peruvian Armed Forces conducted amazing humanitarian work in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake. Can you talk a little about this humanitarian “gift” that Peru has? Adm. Cueto: It’s not only Peru that is doing it, we are doing it reciprocally. We also have had natural disasters. We are part of the Pacific chain where earthquakes visit us from time to time, and we’ve had disasters where we’ve received help from other countries. Similarly, within the limitations of a country like Peru, which is still in development, it provides help when it is feasible, and not just to countries that are in South America. We may provide aid by air or, as in the case of Haiti, even send some ships that can carry this type of humanitarian aid. Peru has always responded. Diálogo: Why not also create a regional organism for this type of assistance, to prevent the disorganization of the early days? Adm. Cueto: When there is a natural disaster, the first days are very hectic, although there are mechanisms to support multinational natural disasters. The chaos in the early days starts with communication problems. The first thing to do is agree to have a single system of communication, so the communication is not lost. If there is no communication, then yes, there is a disaster! We were there in the flesh during the last earthquake, the communication systems went away and it was difficult to re-establish a network that would allow us to manage the media to support the disaster area.

Drilon: Looming POGO exit in PH ‘good news’

first_img“Kanselahin na ang lisensiya kung hindi pa rin maka-comply sa pagbabayad ng buwis. PAGCOR should exercise its regulatory powers and come down hard on tax-evading POGOs. Dahil kung wala namang parusa, wala namang multa, bakit pa nga ba sila magbabayad?” Hontiveros said. The BIR previously said “legal issues” are hampering the collection of franchise taxes from POGOs as these firms assert that they should not be subjected to such because they are non-resident corporations. “It should abandon any effort to [woo] them back. Our tax laws are clear: POGOs should pay franchise and withholding taxes,” the Ilonggo senator added. “That’s good news. Let them go. Hindi po natin kawalan ang POGOs. Huwag po natin silang habulin. PAGCOR should stop playing a lover to POGOs,” Drilon said in a statement. Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon said yesterday that POGOs should settle their P50 billion unpaid taxes and that the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) should immediately issue closure orders to delinquent firms in the said industry. DRILON. GMAcenter_img On Sunday, PAGCOR assistant vice president for offshore gaming licensing Jose Tria confirmed that two POGO firms left the Philippines and more are seen to exit amid tax issues with the government. MANILA – The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation’s (PAGCOR) projection that more Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGO) will be leaving the country amid tax issues is a “good news.” Opposition senator Risa Hontiveros, for her part, has also urged the cancellation of POGO licenses as she said that they shall be subject to 5% franchise tax on Gross Gaming Receipts or a pre-determined minimum monthly revenue, whichever is higher, apart from income tax and withholding tax. “There are other jurisdictions that have opened up offering better tax rates and friendlier environment,” Tria said. “Some [POGOs] also can no longer take the criticisms they get each day that make them feel unwelcome in our country.”/PNlast_img read more

Sherwood aware of Levy risk

first_img The former Spurs midfielder laid out his unconditional commitment to attacking football in that match and he repeated that stance at White Hart Lane on Boxing Day. Sherwood omitted a holding midfielder from the line-up, and Tottenham were exposed as a result, but he insists the team will become a more cohesive unit once they have spent more time working together at the end of the hectic festive schedule. Still, with his only previous managerial experience coming at youth level, he knows his appointment is a punt on Levy’s part. “It’s a gamble because I’ve never done it before,” the 44-year-old said. “But there are a lot of good managers who had never done it before and become a success. “I was never a professional footballer until I stepped on to the field.” The fact that he only has a contract until the end of next season has prompted suggestions that Sherwood is keeping the seat warm for someone with more experience. “I regard (that) as an insult, but it is only an insult if I go and win all the games,” Sherwood said. “What can we do? If we win all the games and someone else comes in and keeps it and brings someone else in after I’ve won the league then I’m going to Real Madrid,” he added with a smile. Sherwood says the players have responded well to his appointment, and bemoaned the fact that he had almost a full team of unfit players unavailable. On paper this was a perfect first league match for the newly-appointed Tottenham boss. West Brom sacked their manager Steve Clarke two weeks ago after they started tumbling down the table. Caretaker manager Keith Downing has steadied the ship somewhat, and had it not been for a couple of good saves from Lloris, the former Wolves midfielder could have recorded his first win. Former Real Betis manager Pepe Mel is understood to be the front runner to succeed Clarke, and Downing – who does not want to be considered – wants the vacancy to be filled soon. “I hope (an appointment) is close for the players’ sake,” said Downing, who will stay in London with his players ahead of Saturday’s game against West Ham. “I know there’s a lot of speculation but I have really tried to concentrate (on the game). “As far as I know (I will be in charge for Saturday). I’m down (in London). We have planned for the next two or three days. We are ready to go and if anybody steps in then I will gladly support whoever comes in. “I spoke to (director of football) Richard Garlick but the interview process is ongoing.” Eyebrows were raised on Monday when Sherwood was handed an 18-month contract as Spurs’ new head coach, and it was clear from the Boxing Day display against Albion that he still has much work to do. Spurs drew 1-1 against the struggling Baggies after Jonas Olsson’s easy tap-in cancelled out Christian Eriksen’s stunning free-kick. Tottenham held onto the lead for less than two minutes and they were regularly exposed at the back by some fluid counter-attacking from the visitors, who arrived at White Hart Lane having not won in their previous seven games. Emmanuel Adebayor – whose error led to the Olsson goal – had an off day up front and had it not been for some good goalkeeping from Hugo Lloris, Tottenham could have suffered another damaging defeat. A smattering of boos rang out at the final whistle to sum up how the home supporters viewed the performance. “The fans will be disappointed, obviously. I understand that,” Sherwood said. “We are at home and, with respect, against West Brom you should be winning. “It’s a game we should have won. We should have played better and we are capable of playing better. “I thought we could be a bit more adventurous around the penalty box and show a little more guile.” Sherwood was appointed caretaker following the dismissal of Andre Villas-Boas and he delivered an encouraging win over Southampton last weekend. Tim Sherwood admits Daniel Levy has taken a gamble on him after he came away from his first match in charge of Tottenham with an underwhelming draw against West Brom.
