Uruguayan Navy seizes 1.4 tons of cocaine from a fishing boat

first_img In the weeks leading to the seizure and the arrests, the Division of Investigation and Narcotics of the National Naval Prefecture (DIVIN) gathered intelligence that the boat’s crew members were using welding equipment to create secret compartments to conceal cocaine, authorities said. Naval investigators presented the evidence to Judge De Los Santos, who approved a search warrant, officials said. Technology used to capture boat transporting cocaine The Uruguayan Navy recently seized 1.4 tons of cocaine and captured nine suspects during a security initiative known as “Burned Shark.” Uruguayan authorities announced the successful security operation on Dec. 22, 2013. It was the largest drug seizure ever by the Navy. The Navy seized the drugs from the Panamanian-flagged fishing vessel named “Perbes.” The ship was on its way to Europe, authorities said. Navy investigators arrested six Colombians and three Nicaraguans. The ship’s owner was among the suspects, authorities said. The detainees had a hearing before Judge Adriana De Los Santos, who handles organized crime cases. The judge took statements from the suspects and ordered that they continue to be held in custody. By Dialogo January 14, 2014 The drug trade not only creates violence, it harms young people, said Uruguayan Senator Alfredo Solari, a medical doctor who is also president of the Senate’s health commission. Young people who take drugs do not do as well in school as young people who do not take drugs, Solari said. “Our country has a serious problem with the poor performance of its education system, particularly secondary education (12 to 18 years-old),” Solari said. “A third of those entering secondary education do not complete the first three years. 102, 000 Uruguayans between 15 and 29 years neither study nor work. These failures have many causes but the abuse of alcohol and illicit drugs during childhood and adolescence are key culprits.” In testimony before the health commission, school authorities said drug use one of the main reasons many students do not perform well in school. The fall of Don Berna In 2005, Intelligence led to seizure and arrests Drug traffickers from Colombia and Ecuador and criminal gangs from Central America are fighting for control of drug trafficking routes in the Southern Cone, the southern tip of Latin America which includes Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile, and part of Brazil. In particular, Colombian drug traffickers are active in the Southern Cone and throughout Latin America. For example, the drug trafficking organization led by Colombian organized crime kingpin Diego Fernando Murillo, who is known as “Don Berna,” has established operations in recent years in Argentina, Bolivia, and Ecuador, according to the Colombian newspaper El Tiempo. In Argentina, some members of Don Berna’s family live in luxury condominiums and ride polo ponies. Members of Don Berna’s organization have established cocaine processing laboratories in Bolivia and Ecuador, according to published reports. As a young man, Don Berna was a member of the Popular Liberation Army (EPL), an anti-government guerilla group. Don Berna left the EPL in the 1980s and joined the Galeano organized crime gropu in Medellin. The group was affiliated with the Medellin Cartel, led by drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. In the early 1990s, Escobar ordered the killings of several EPL leaders who he believed were stealing from him. Don Berna formed an organized crime group, the People Persecuted by Pablo Escobar (PEPES) to fight back against the Medellin Cartel. Security forces killed Escobar in 1993. Don Berna filled the power vacuum left by Escobar and eventually became leader of the Oficina de Envigado, an organized crime group formed by former members of the Medellin Cartel. Drugs hurt young people In October 2103, the Ecuadorean Navy, in cooperation with the National Police, used advanced technology to find a boat that was transporting a high amount of cocaine. The Unit Against Organized Crime (ULCO) of the National Police alerted the Navy of the presence of a Panamanian-flagged vessel which was suspected of transporting drugs off the Ecuadorean coast. The Navy sent several drones into the air to track the boat. The drones located the boat, named “Doria,” about 130 nautical miles southwest of the port of Manta. The Coast Guard intercepted the boat. Coast Guard authorities boarded the boat and found nearly 800 kilograms of cocaine on the vessel, Coast Guard authorities detained the Doria’s five-person crew. Two of the crew members were from Colombia, one is Nicaraguan, one is Panamanian, and one is from the United States, authorities said. center_img Colombian organized crime groups active in the region Operation Burning Shark is part of a broad effort by the Uruguayan government to crack down on drug trafficking. With increasing frequency, organized crime groups are using Uruguay as a transshipment point, transporting cocaine and other drugs through the country and eventually to Mexico, the United States, or Europe. Drug traffickers from Colombia and Ecuador and criminal gangs from Central America are fighting for control of drug trafficking routes in the Southern Cone, the southern tip of Latin America which includes Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile, and part of Brazil. Don Berna surrendered to authorities. In 2008, authorities extradited him to the U.S. on drug trafficking charges. In June 2008, he pleaded guilty in federal court in New York to conspiring to import tons of cocaine into the U.S. A judge sentenced Don Berna to 31 years in prison. Countries throughout Latin America are cooperating with each other and with U.S. security forces in the battle against organized crime. For example, in November 2013, Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa and Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos met in the Colombian city of Ipiales to discuss common security concerns and other issues. The two presidents agreed to strengthen ties in the battle against drug traffickers and other organized crime groups. The two countries share a border that is 730 kilometers long. Also in November 2013, Correa and Peruvian President Ollanta Humala signed two security agreements, strengthening cooperation between their two countries in the fight against organized crime.. Cooperation against drug trafficking Uruguay fights drug trafficking Armed with the search warrant, naval investigators boarded the vessel and found the cocaine hidden beneath a wooden floor. The cocaine was stored in the lower half of the boat, inside two compartments underneath a refrigerating unit. The seizure of the cocaine was a team effort that was made possible by the work of the DIVIN, according to Gastón Jaunsolo, a spokesman for the Navy. “It was fine intelligence work. The seizure was the end result of a lot of hard, work, it was a commendable job,” Jaunsolo said. The operation marked “the largest seizure of cocaine made in the Navy’s history.” Most large seizures by the Navy reached into the hundreds of kilos, Jaunsolo said.

Kayla Treanor looks to continue dominance on draw in ACC tournament

first_imgWhen Kayla Treanor stepped into the draw circle in the season opener against Loyola, it marked a new layer added to her illustrious career. And just like most everything else she’s done, Treanor thrived on the draw that day, setting a school record with 19 draw controls and putting any concerns of former faceoff specialist Kailah Kempney’s departure in the rearview mirror.SU’s 14.28 draw controls per game is the fourth-best mark in the country and Treanor’s individual mark of 9.06 per game is the best in the country. SU has won almost 90 more draws than its opponents through 18 games.“No, not at all,” assistant coach Michelle Tumolo said of whether SU’s in-conference mark is cause for concern.On Saturday, Treanor and the Orange made a statement. Louisville draw specialist Kaylin Morissette led the nation in draw controls coming into the game, yet SU won 16 draws, losing just 9.Syracuse (14-4, 5-2 ACC) starts ACC Tournament play on Thursday and it’s the first time it’s playing an opponent twice. Treanor will face players who already neutralized her in the draw circle once before. For Syracuse to have success against Boston College (10-7, 2-5), a team that beat SU, 13-8, this year, and won the draw battle, 13-10, Treanor and SU will have to earn more possessions.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I think Kayla’s dialed in, she’s got it covered,” Tumolo continued. “I think we’re hitting better competition, and they have a lot of legit draw people on these teams.”Treanor is skilled enough in the draw circle to employ different tactics, whether it’s flicking the ball up high to herself, or aiming it at a specific teammate or area. The SU senior and head coach Gary Gait said that the reason other teams have had some more success on the draw is because their draw specialists try to pull the ball toward players on the outside to make it a groundball scramble.Tumolo said that if SU knows that the opponent’s draw specialist pulls the ball away from Treanor, it reacts by placing extra players in those areas. If Treanor can’t win the draw herself, SU relies on its outside players to scoop up the groundballs. Facing teams’ draw specialists for the second time gives Syracuse the advantage, Gait said.“The great thing about it is now we’ll have film on every opponent that we’ve played and we can make adjustments,” Gait said. “And that’s a good thing to have.”Taking the draw requires additional preparation before the game, Treanor said, and while most in-game play is natural instincts, the draw requires rigorously honed techniques. Treanor said she suffered from tendinitis in her wrists at the start of the season because she practiced the draw so much.Now, the pain in her wrists has subdued. And with the postseason coming up, she has no plans on asking for a break from her draw duties. Gait wants his best player at the draw circle with the game on the line, and Treanor wants to be there, too.“When the game gets down to the wire it comes down to who can get control of the draw,” Treanor said. “You feel that pressure a lot, it’s definitely an added pressure, but it’s nice to have control over that.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 27, 2016 at 10:22 pm Contact Tomer: [email protected] | @tomer_langerlast_img read more
