Colombian Navy’s International Maritime Center against Drug Trafficking: A Strategic Anti-Drug Solution

first_imgBy Julieta Pelcastre/Diálogo September 12, 2016 Since its founding on July 3rd, 2015, the Colombian Navy’s International Maritime Center Against Drug Trafficking (CIMCON for its Spanish acronym)), a leading research center on drug trafficking, has become an answer against criminal groups operating in the territorial waters of the Americas. After a year of work that created a “virtuous cycle” by combining the use of information with experience, academic research, information transfer, and case studies, CIMCON has finalized new operational recommendations and approaches to its regional security strategy for combating drugs, the Colombian Navy reported. “According to Colombian sources, an estimated 6 million nautical miles [11 million square kilometers] comprise the transit zone is used for illegal drug trafficking in the Caribbean and Central America. Over 50 percent of the drugs transported by sea transits or crosses through Colombian maritime jurisdiction,” Commander George Rincón, CIMCON director, told Diálogo. “No Navy has the capacity to exercise control in such a wide area. Regional navy integration is fundamental so that information flow can be more effective in operations at sea.” Fulfilling responsibilities CIMCON is located at the Admiral Padilla Barrio Bosque Naval Academy of Cadets facilities, in the city of Cartagena, Colombia. It was built with help from the United States government and has fulfilled its regional commitments: promoting closer ties among the countries affected by drug trafficking as well as studying drug trafficking and the evolution of the crime that affects all countries equally, according to the Colombian Navy. CIMCON has hosted experts from all over the Americas to develop the required studies and to fulfill the center’s proposed objectives. Since March 1, 2016, Captain Alfredo Ramón Enriquez Delgado was commissioned as researcher and Mexican Navy representative to CIMCON. For the past seven years, he has developed naval intelligence work. “Accumulated experience is very important. Capt. Enriquez has focused his efforts on studying submersibles and semi-submersibles because the use of this type of vessel is also a threat in Mexico. He ([Capt. Enriquez]) is participating in the analysis we’re doing on what is going on in the Pacific, the Caribbean and Central America with respect to the use of different dynamics and means of transportation used by drug-trafficking groups,” said Cmdr. Rincón. The results Over the past 23 years, Colombian authorities have confiscated 91 semi-submersibles that were going to be used for trafficking drugs from Colombia to the United States or Mexico. This vessel is an illegal marine vehicle handcrafted for trafficking drugs. Its construction requires materials, technology and a specialized workforce, which costs between $ 1 million and $ 1.5 million, according to Colombian daily El Tiempo. Since the beginning of the 90s, manufacturing techniques for the so-called “narco-submarines” have been improving, increasing their carrying capacity. They are currently able to smuggle up to 15 metric tons of drugs. Some vessels are silent and unmanned, while others are equipped with valves that allow them to fill up with water and submerge themselves in order to evade authorities. Honduras was the first Latin American country to send a researcher to the International Maritime Center Against Drug Trafficking. For six months, Honduran Navy Lieutenant Junior Grade Marlon Flores Ávila developed work related to Fusion Centers, a strategy applied to the region by the Colombian Navy since 2014. This strategy is known as a naval network, which is the sum of efforts, capacities and information. The strategy seeks to create “sanctuaries” where danger zones for drug trafficking organizations are created through national-level information exchange between the various Forces and Latin American agencies, Navies and Coast Guards; and through the implementation of Fusion Centers, which help coordinate information and anti-drug trafficking operations in real time, explained Commander Néstor O. Castellanos Zambrano, head of the Analysis and Operational Innovation Division of the Colombian Navy’s Direction Against Drugs, according to the website of the Maritime League of Colombia. “Using naval intelligence, Lt. Flores was able to compile important information that allowed him to develop the research work that he brought to his country. Honduras is seeing how to implement a Fusion Center; these centers have worked very well in Colombia,” explained Cmdr. Rincón. “What they are seeking to do is plant a seed, to try to make the International Maritime Center available to countries to hit hard at organizations on the margins of the law. We also hope to have United States researchers and analysts in the near future. France responded to the strategy and sent a couple of researchers to CIMCON.” Colombian naval intelligence and Honduran naval intelligence have become closer through CIMCON, allowing for the confiscation of over 3 metric tons of cocaine off the coast of Honduras in 2015. The drug seizures were carried out in various areas in Honduras, mainly in the sector of La Mosquita, in the department of Gracias a Dios. The future of CIMCON CIMCON is working on two proposals: the Fusion Centers and legal issues — developing legal seminars in the region, which allow for the standardization of procedures. The two proposals will be presented at the XV meeting of the group of experts of the Inter-American Drug Abuse Control Commission on maritime drug trafficking. The goal of the meeting, which will be held from September 13th to 15th in Cartagena, Colombia, is to strengthen the fight against drugs at the hemispheric level. “The Colombian Navy and the navies of the region are accustomed to developing naval intelligence. The navies have their place, and they are very effective, but the problem of drug trafficking is not being impacted — the problem persists. From an academic perspective, CIMCON, in its research and analysis role, is more about strategy than tactics, and we want to develop operational recommendations that contribute in some way, but that have a lot more impact on the problem of drug trafficking,” concluded Cmdr. Rincón.last_img read more

West Ham hammer Swansea 4-1

first_imgWEST Ham cruised to a third straight win to plunge Swansea City deeper into Premier League relegation trouble and increase the pressure on manager Bob Bradley.Former Swans forward Andre Ayew pounced on Lukasz Fabianski’s fumble to put the visitors ahead, before Winston Reid headed in from a corner to double their lead.Michail Antonio added a third and, although Fernando Llorente scored late on for Swansea, Andy Carroll’s firm strike sealed a convincing West Ham victory.Slaven Bilic’s side climb to 11th in the Premier League table, while Swansea remain second from bottom but now four points adrift of safety.Where Bradley is concerned, a seventh defeat from his 11 matches in charge leaves the American in grave danger of losing his job less than three months after his appointment.Swansea’s supporters called for his sacking during the second half, as well as accusing the club’s directors of greed following the Swans’ American takeover in the summer.Having won only two of his first 10 games at the helm, Bradley admitted before the match that his future could depend on the outcome of this fixture and the home encounter with Bournemouth on New Year’s Eve.Swansea had unravelled with scant resistance to lose their previous two games, at Middlesbrough 3-0 and West Brom 3-1, and they were similarly vulnerable against West Ham.Since the American’s appointment in October the Swans had conceded 25 goals – more than any other Premier League side in the same period – and their 26th was as feeble as any they have let in.Cheikhou Kouyate only managed a weak flick from Andy Carroll’s header, but Fabianski could only palm the ball into the path of Ayew, who tapped in from close range.The goal created a sense of anxiety inside the Liberty Stadium, and that unease turned to wholehearted hostility after Reid extended West Ham’s lead.Swansea’s supporters booed Bradley and chanted “You don’t know what you’re doing”, before turning their ire towards the Swans’ board as the prospect of relegation looms larger than ever.Unlike their opponents, West Ham entered this match with renewed optimism after successive 1-0 wins over Hull and Burnley had eased their own relegation fears.Those were relatively hard-earned triumphs, but they were able to cruise to victory in south Wales without playing at their fluent best.It was a straightforward afternoon for goalkeeper Darren Randolph and his defenders, who had little to worry about apart from the occasional long-range effort from Gylfi Sigurdsson.In attack, West Ham were clinical on the break and from set-pieces, with midfielder Dimitri Payet increasingly influential in the second half.Carroll also proved his worth with a typically abrasive display, capped with a goal which helped maintain the Hammers’ record of winning every Premier League match in which the striker has started since returning from injury.Former England captain Alan Shearer:“Swansea just aren’t working hard enough. There’s no excuse for the second goal. Winston Reid gets above the two defenders – there’s no way he should win the ball – but he gets above them because he wants it more, it means more to him.“It was a big punt bringing Bob Bradley in, with his lack of experience of Premier League players and lack of experience in the Premier League. It was always going to be a big ask of him to keep Swansea up.”Former West Ham forward Ian Wright:“It was starting to get tight for West Ham and Slaven Bilic had to dig the players out after the 5-1 defeat to Arsenal at the start of December. The players needed to hear that.”Swansea host Bournemouth on New Year’s Eve before taking on Crystal Palace on January 3. West Ham travel to Leicester on December 31 and face Manchester United at home on January 2.last_img read more

Serial Woman Beater Floyd Mayweather Defends Ray Rice, Blasts NFL

first_imgThis is where America exemplifies a great degree of hypocrisy. The many millions of people who were outraged by Ray Rice’s singular act of domestic violence will turn around and pay to attend and watch Floyd Mayweather’s boxing match — including millions of women.Some women will even host fight parties to watch Money Mayweather, helping to make him even more millions of dollars on top of what he already has, despite the fact that Mayweather is a chronic woman beater who even spent time in jail for his transgressions.Now Mayweather took the time to defend Rice and blast the NFL and Baltimore Ravens for indefinitely suspending him and cutting him from the team, respectively, this past week for the emergence of a video showing Rice knocking out his then-fiancé Jonay Palmer.Pretty Boy Floyd ridiculed the NFL for exponentially raising the two-game suspension to an indefinite suspension that puts Rice’s football career in great peril. Mayweather, who is now being sued by yet another woman for beating and humiliating her, said a deal’s a deal.“They had said that they had suspended him for two games,” Mayweather told reporters, according to The Ring. “Wheather they saw the tape or not, I truly believe a person should stick to their word. “If you tell me you’re going to do something, do what you say you’re going to do. But once again, I’m not in the NFL, so I can’t really speak about the situation.”As most recall, Mayweather had to spend two months in jail in 2012 for domestic battery charges, said he saw the Rice video but still doesn’t believe the NFL should’ve extended the suspension.“I think there are a lot worst things that go on in other people’s households also. It’s just not caught on video,” said Mayweather.What did you expect a serial woman beater to say? Mayweather, 37, has a long and trifling history of beating up women in ways he never would with a man:In 2002, he pleaded guilty to two counts of domestic violence and was given a six-month suspended sentence and two days of house arrest.Mayweather was also convicted of misdemeanor battery in 2004 for fighting with two women in a Las Vegas nightclub and given a one-year suspended sentence and ordered into counseling.Mayweather said he’s been the victim of false accusations.“Like I’ve said in the past, no bumps, no bruises, no nothing,” Mayweather said.It is here that Mayweather descends into the idiotic with his next statement.“With O.J. and Nicole (Simpson), you seen pictures. With Chris Brown and Rihanna, you seen pictures. With (Chad) Ochocinco and Evelyn, you seen pictures. You guys have yet to see any pictures of a battered woman, a woman who says she was kicked and beaten (by Mayweather). So I just live my life and try to stay positive, and try to become a better person each and every day.”If Mayweather is innocent of all these charges of domestic violence — including holding a gun to a woman while heMayweather said he wishes Rice “nothing but the best” and suggested that he understood what he was going through.“I know he’s probably going through a lot right now because football is his passion, football is his love. It’s no different than with me being in the fight game,” Mayweather was quoted as saying. “If they told me, ‘Floyd, you’ve got the biggest deal in sports history,’ and then a couple months later, they say, ‘You know what, your deal is taken away from you’ — oh, man. It’s not really just the money, it’s just the love of the sport, the passion.”Mayweather will put his WBC/WBA welterweight titles on the line on Saturday night when he fights Marcos Maidana in Las Vegas.last_img read more
