Chepe’s Capture Signifies Dramatic Blow against “Los Urabeños”

first_img His capture was conducted when investigators from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation and Interpol (Dijín) intercepted him at Piamonte, Cáceres municipality (Antioquia). Two 9 mm pistols, eight magazines, 110 pistol cartridges and four high-end mobile phones were seized in the operation. Aka “Chepe” is wanted on two arrest warrants; one for aggravated conspiracy, issued by the 23rd Specialized Attorney General Office in Medellín, and the second one for trafficking, manufacturing and carrying drugs and conspiracy, issued by the 280th Attorney General Office in Bogotá, as well as an extradition order issued by the United States for crimes related to drug trafficking. Aka “Chepe,” the arrestee is responsible for the criminal structure in Caucasia, Cáceres, Tarazá, (in Antioquia), Uré, and La Apartada in southern Córdoba. “Chepe,” who was the leader of about 100 men, is attributed the wave of violence that hit these municipalities due to turf wars with members of the criminal gang “Los Rastrojos” over the domination of drug trafficking routes. By Dialogo August 28, 2013 The criminal organization “Los Urabeños” was struck by the Colombian National Police in lower Cauca, Antioquia department, Colombia, with the capture of their main leader, wanted for extradition by the United States, as part of the Strategy to Combat Transnational Organized Crime.

Why banking apps and startups suddenly all have human first names

first_imgWhen you need some money to make it to your next paycheck, you can always call on Dave. If you need budgeting help, reach out to Brigit. And for a personal loan to get you out of credit card debt, try Marcus.That’s not to presume the names and financial situations of the people in your life: Dave, Brigit, and Marcus are all money-related apps and services that have human first names. Personable products aimed at your wallet are a definite mini-trend. There’s also Frank (student loans), Alice (automated pre-tax spending), Clyde (insurance), Oscar (also insurance), and Albert (savings, investment, and overdraft protection).Anthony Shore, the founder of brand-naming firm Operative Words, explains that these financial startups are simply trying to sound more accessible. “‘Let’s make ourselves chummy and folksy,’” Shore says, channeling a financial startup.Laurel Sutton, a senior strategist and linguist at the naming agency Catchword, agrees. “They’re trying to take [the brand] away from a faceless institution,” Sutton told Vox. “That kind of branding seems very much on point for millennials or post-millennials.” 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more

MP Pension sheds DKK13m of G4S stock, following Norwegian lead

first_imgDanish pension fund MP Pension has decided to exclude UK security firm G4S from its investments after finally losing confidence in the company’s ability avoid behaviour which breaches the DKK131bn (€17.5bn) pension fund’s policy on responsible investment.Anders Schelde, the fund’s chief investment officer, told IPE the decision had led to an instruction on 16 January to external managers working for MP Pension to sell off DKK13m of G4S stock.The pension fund’s internally-managed portfolio, on the other hand, had had no exposure to the UK firm’s equity at the time, he said.“Our managers have been reducing their exposure to G4S on behalf of us by quite a lot throughout last year, and at the beginning of this year, they only had about a quarter of the investment that they’d had in the summer of 2019,” he said. “We’ve been engaging with the company for years and years, through our services provider.“G4S have been on our radar for years, and when the Norwegian oil fund decided to divest in late autumn, and then KLP made a similar move in December, we put the stock on the agenda of our responsible investment committee’s January meeting,” said Schelde.The Council on Ethics of the Norwegian Government Pension Fund Global (GPFG) said in November it had recommended the exclusion because of unacceptable risk that the company was contributing to or was responsible for serious or systematic human rights violations.The advisory panel specifically cited labour rights violations in the Qatar and United Arab Emirates operations of G4S, where its employees were mostly migrant workers.However MP Pension said that its own reasons for excluding the company were broader than this.“We decided to exclude G4S from our investments because there was too big a risk that we would be continually connected to breaches of our policy by staying invested, after a series of issues over many years,” Schelde said.G4S had been responsive, addressing some of the concerns expressed over the years by investors, and had, for example, developed human rights policies, Schelde said.But recurrent breaches had nevertheless painted a picture of a company unable to effectively implement these policies in its operations, he added.IPE asked G4S to comment on the divestment, but none was received by deadline.last_img read more
