Peruvian Police Dismantle Stolen Peruvian Arms Sold To Colombian Rebels

first_imgBy Dialogo January 14, 2010 Peruvian police dismantled a ring of military personnel that was selling armament to Colombia’s leftist FARC guerrillas, La Republica newspaper reported. The ring included members of the Peruvian army and air force, but was led by Ecuadorian national Freddy Torres, who was arrested Dec. 19 in northern Peru and who represented himself to his accomplices as a logistics specialist with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia. The accomplices say that Torres, who has refused to give a statement to police, first entered Peru in 2004 to obtain arms and supplies for the FARC’s Southern Bloc, which operates in regions along the Peruvian border. Torres initially shopped for grenades and ammunitions. In recent months, however, he managed to obtain Igla surface-to-air missiles and Browning M2-HB machine guns that were stolen from Peruvian air force arsenals, La Republica said. From Peru’s army, Torres allegedly obtained rocket-propelled grenades and high-grade machine gun ammo capable of downing aircraft. The military accomplices delivered the stolen items to Julio Huapaya, who then re-sold them to Torres. “He bought weapons every 15 or 20 days and he had a lot of money. He also told me he was part of the FARC. He assured me they sent him around $100,000 a month for the purchases,” Huapaya – now in custody – told police, according to the newspaper. Also arrested was former Peruvian policeman William Cortenero, who was found to have RPG ordnance at his homes in Lima and on the Pacific coast. Three army non-commissioned officers are in custody for their part in the scheme, including one who was filmed by police as he sold stolen weapons, La Republica said.last_img read more

China will strive for positive economic growth this year: Premier Li

first_imgTopics : Investors have been expecting Beijing to roll out a large stimulus measures to pull the world’s second-largest economy out of an unprecedented downturn, and some were disappointed at the unusual decision not to set a growth target.Li stressed the focus of policymaking had shifted towards ensuring stability in employment, financial operations, foreign trade, foreign investment, domestic investment, and market expectations.”We can introduce new policies in a timely manner, and we will not hesitate to maintain the stable operation of the Chinese economy, which is paramount,” the premier said.The government has pledged more government spending and an fiscal deficit target of at least 3.6% of GDP. Based on fiscal measures announced so far, the stimulus the government plans to roll out is equivalent to about 4.1% of China’s GDP, according to Reuters calculations.  China will strive for positive economic growth to recover from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic this year, despite not setting a growth target, Premier Li Keqiang said on Thursday, promising more support if the economy faced further disruption.”We have reserved policy room. Be it fiscal, finance, or social security,” Li said during his once-a-year news conference following the close of the annual meeting of parliament.China does not need a massive stimulus but growth remains important, and liquidity will be increased because “exceptional situations call for exceptional measures”, he said in response to a question from Reuters.last_img read more
