first_img Brazil will conduct a large military border operation in May to safeguard the Confederations Cup that will be held in June, an event considered the final rehearsal before the 2014 World Cup, President Dilma Rousseff announced on April 23. “In May, a monumental military operation will be deployed all along our 16,000 km of land border to prevent crime and as a security shield for the Confederations Cup,” the President stated in her weekly column, ‘Conversation with the president.’ “Public security is the constitutional responsibility of the states, but the federal government has the duty to be present in the action area, and this is what we are doing,” the president confirmed. The head of government did not provide any details on the number of troops involved in the seventh edition of “Operation Ágata,” which was first launched in August 2011 as part of a strategic plan for border surveillance. The Armed Forces and the Federal and State Police Forces have since been working in a coordinated way to counter the so-called transborder crimes, especially drug trafficking. However, when the operation was announced in late 2012, Brazilian Minister of Defense Celso Amorim estimated that about 25,000 Navy, Army and Air Force troops would be deployed, which doubles the average number of members used in the previous six editions of “Operation Ágata.” Considered the general test ahead of the 2014 World Cup, the Confederations Cup brings together eight soccer teams that will play each other between June 15 and 30 in six of the 12 World Cup venues. The troops will be mobilized to control products, drugs, and weapons trafficking, as Minister Amorim previously stated. Rousseff said that since the beginning of the strategy, 65 criminal organizations were disrupted and 360 tons of drugs were seized. In addition to border control actions, Brazil will have a force of 1,200 troops specialized in terrorism and chemical weapons to guarantee the security of the Confederations Cup, the Army reported. Although Brazil has not been the target of terrorist actions, the recent attacks at the Boston Marathon in Massachusetts has alarmed local authorities. In addition to Chile and Ecuador, Brazil shares its borders with all other South American countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Surinam, Uruguay, Venezuela, and French Guiana.

Only 22% of people fall into the “married couple with children” category.• 24% of the population claim no religious affiliation at all.• People would rather join a cause than a club.

Share NewsRegional Secretary general tells Diaspora trade not the only measure of success for CARICOM by: – April 26, 2012center_img Share Tweet Secretary-general of CARICOM, Irwin LaRocqueWASHINGTON, USA — Secretary-general of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), Irwin LaRocque, told leaders of the Washington, DC-based Caribbean Diaspora that merchandise trade was not the only measure to judge the success of the integration movement. The secretary-general was on the first day of his visit to the US capital when he met with a cross section of the Diaspora leadership at the offices of the Inter-American Development Bank on Tuesday. He brought the gathering up to date on the latest developments in the Community with emphasis on the reform process. The Diaspora offered suggestions on improving links with their homeland including greater use of the social networks and programmes specifically aimed at attracting their skills to assist the region’s development. Earlier in the day the secretary-general had met with the CARICOM Caucus of Ambassadors in Washington, during which issues related to relations between the United States and the region were discussed. These included the Community’s response to the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and the Food Safety Modernisation Act (FSMA), two pieces of US legislation that would have adverse effects on the Community. Some provisions of the FATCA have implications for the banks and financial institutions in the region as the comprehensive nature of the legislation requires extensive reporting requirements on any institution doing business with persons and entities from the US. Given the demands of the FACTA, there is concern that compliance would contravene local laws to which the banking and financial institutions are obligated. With respect to the FSMA, the new legislation would have significant implications on how Caribbean businesses interact with the US and has the potential to reduce CARICOM’s exports to the US. This is due to the need for food exporters to satisfy more stringent requirements to gain entry into the market. LaRocque and the ambassadors also looked at responding to the developments surrounding the subsidies to US Virgin Islands rum producers, which have put CARICOM rum producers at a disadvantage. The ambassadors were also brought up to date on the support given to the Community by the IDB to develop the region’s Aid for Trade Strategy as well as in the area of Maritime Transport and Information and Communication Technology for Development (ICT4D). The secretary-general also met with the president of the IDB Luis Alberto Moreno after paying a courtesy call on Richard Bernal, executive director for The Bahamas, Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago at the Bank. The special representative of the heads of government on Haiti, PJ Patterson, and Haiti’s special envoy to CARICOM, John Alexis, also attended this meeting at which the reconstruction of Haiti was a major topic.Caribbean News Nowlast_img read more
