Colombian paramilitaries for hire?

first_imgLA LOMA, Colombia – The bus had just left Drummond Co. Inc.’s coal mine carrying about 50 workers when gunmen halted it and forced two union leaders off. They shot one on the spot, pumping four bullets into his head, and dragged the other one off to be tortured and killed. In a civil trial set to begin Monday before a federal jury in Birmingham, Ala., union lawyers have presented affidavits from two people who allege that Drummond ordered those killings, a charge the company denies. Multinationals operating in Colombia have admitted paying right-wing militias known as paramilitaries to protect their operations. But human rights activists claim the companies went further, using the fighters to violently keep their labor costs down. The Drummond case, they say, is their best chance yet of seeing those allegations heard in court. The union has presented affidavits to the Alabama court from two people who say they were present when Drummond’s chief executive in Colombia, Augusto Jimenez, handed over a large sum of cash to representatives of the local paramilitary warlord. They claim the money was for the March 10, 2001, killings of Sintramienergetica union local president Valmore Locarno and his deputy, Victor Orcasita. Union leaders, former army soldiers and ex-paramilitary fighters also allege that family-owned Drummond, which shifted most of its operations to northern Colombia in the 1990s as its Alabama veins gave out, paid and provisioned the paramilitaries as a matter of policy. Drummond says neither charge is true. “Drummond did not pay any paramilitary or illegal or unlawful group,” it said in a written response to questions from The Associated Press. Senior company executives declined interviews. Rafael Garcia, the former technology director of the DAS state security agency, says in an affidavit that he saw Jimenez give “a suitcase full of cash” to paramilitary commanders “to assassinate specific union leaders,” naming Locarno and Orcasita. Garcia is in prison, convicted of erasing drug traffickers’ names from DAS records. Former paramilitary fighter Alberto Visbal says in an affidavit that he saw Jimenez pay his boss, who went by the alias “Julian,” $200,000 in cash. Visbal, who has fled Colombia, said he understood from another fighter present that the money was in exchange for the killings. Visbal says he was later sent to confirm Locarno’s death. In a filing in an Atlanta circuit court Thursday seeking more time to gather depositions, plaintiffs for the union also alleged that former union treasurer Jimmy Rubio saw a Drummond official – they didn’t specify which one – pay a paramilitary leader for the killings. Rubio went into hiding when his father-in-law was murdered just before he was to give a deposition in the case, they said. Drummond challenged the accounts. “We have evidence that some (of the witnesses) are being paid and/or offered assistance by the United Steelworkers Union,” it said in its written response. The union said the only assistance provided to witnesses was helping some of them leave the country after their lives were threatened. The lawsuit, filed under a U.S. statute that lets foreigners sue U.S. corporations for their conduct abroad, seeks hundreds of millions of dollars in damages, alleging Locarno, Orcasita and Gustavo Soler – who was killed after he took over for Locarno – “were direct victims of Drummond’s plan to violently destroy the union.” “I think they thought they could get away with anything, literally get away with murder,” United Steelworkers lawyer Daniel Kovalik said. Drummond’s relationship with the Sintramienergetica union, which represents a third of its 6,200 local workers, has long been tense. The union accuses the company of unsafe conditions it says contributed to 13 accidental deaths since 1995, of forcing injured employees to work and of indiscriminately dismissing workers. Drummond said: “We have a good relationship with our rank and file work force.” The U.S. Justice Department fined Chiquita Brands International Inc. $25 million this year for giving $1.7 million to the militias from 1997-2004. Chiquita said the regular monthly payments by its wholly owned subsidiary Banadex were “to protect the lives of its employees.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Sheehan arrested, ejected from House

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON – Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a fallen soldier in Iraq who reinvigorated the anti-war movement, was arrested and removed from the House gallery Tuesday night just before President Bush’s State of the Union address, a police spokeswoman said. Sheehan, who was invited to attend the speech by Rep. Lynn Woolsey, D-Calif., was charged with demonstrating in the Capitol building, said Capitol Police Sgt. Kimberly Schneider. The charge was later changed to unlawful conduct, Schneider said. Both charges are misdemeanors. Sheehan was taken in handcuffs from the Capitol to police headquarters a few blocks away. Her case was processed as Bush spoke. Schneider said Sheehan had worn a T-shirt with an anti-war slogan to the speech and covered it up until she took her seat. Police warned her that such displays were not allowed, but she did not cooperate, the spokeswoman said. Police handcuffed Sheehan and removed her from the gallery before Bush arrived. Sheehan was to be released on her own recognizance, Schneider said. “I’m proud that Cindy’s my guest tonight,” Woolsey said in an interview before the speech. “She has made a difference in the debate to bring our troops home from Iraq.” Woolsey offered Sheehan a ticket to the speech earlier Tuesday while Sheehan was attending an “alternative state of the union” press conference by CODEPINK, a group pushing for an end to the Iraq war.last_img read more

Italy giants end their interest in Chelsea manager Antonio Conte – Reports

first_imgAC Milan have ended their interest in Chelsea boss Antonio Conte and are ready to offer current boss Gennaro Gattuso a new contract.The former midfielder was placed in charge of the San Siro club back in November, after Vincenzo Montella was sacked.Gattuso was given a contract until the end of the season when he agreed to take the reins and it was reported Milan would look at other more long-term targets in the summer.Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was said to be high on their shortlist, while Carlo Ancelotti was also considered an option.But now, according to Calciomercato, Milan are ready to end their search for an alternative by rewarding Gattuso with a new contract.Gattuso has steadied the ship since taking charge and Milan are unbeaten since Christmas Day.The Italian club are prepared to extend the 40-year-old’s contract to at least 2019, although they haven’t ruled out making it longer than that. 1 Antonio Conte last_img read more

John Campbell powers Buncrana into Junior final

first_imgJOHN CAMPBELL was the difference as Buncrana got past St Mary’s, Convoy to book a place in next weekend’s Junior Championship final.Buncrana 1-10 St Mary’s, Convoy 0-9By Chris McNulty at O’Donnell Park Campbell scored 1-7, including a 15th minute goal that was the big score in a game that never really caught fire.Campbell’s goal kept Buncrana at arm’s length and Convoy couldn’t quite get close enough to make them wobble.Campbell hit three-in-a-row to move Buncrana in front after Joe McGill’s point just 20 seconds in had given Convoy an early advantage.Midway through the first half, the big full-forward had the ball in the net. Darach O’Connor’s ball in was broken down and Campbell crashed into the roof of the Convoy net. Frees from Joe McGill, one of which, off the ground, belied the testing conditions, kept Convoy in the hunt.St Mary’s had a fine summer in winning promotion into Division 2 of the All-County League, but recent weeks have seen a few key men depart.Laurence McMullan has had to say farewells to Emmet Patterson, James Kee, Emmet McNulty and Jack Blake – all of whom have emigrated.Paddy Dolan, the joint captain of the Donegal U20s this year who has trained with Donegal’s seniors, shook off an injury scare to take his place in the Convoy XV.McGill tucked over another free to narrow the gap to two, but Donegal player Caolan McGonagle landed a ’45 and Campbell kicked another point as Buncrana went in 1-6 to 0-5 in front at the break. There were ripples of shock sweeping across Donegal last year when Buncrana plummeted down from the Intermediate Championship, but the Scarvey men entered this year as the Junior Championship’s favourites. The return of Darach O’Connor following a summer in San Francisco and the addition of goalkeeper Harry Doherty gave them added dimensions, not to mention the reappearance in the club colours of 2012 All-Ireland winner Ryan Bradley, who came on here for the final 20 minutes.O’Connor was forced off at half-time having picked up an injury late in the first period, but sub Odhrán Doherty fired Buncrana – who came through the group phase without much fuss – five in front just after the restart. Dolan and McGill kept the scoreboard ticking for St Mary’s and, as the game headed for the final quarter, only Campbell’s goal separated the sides. When corner-back Michael Patton clipped over 11 minutes from the end, there were just two points in it and the score served as a reminder that Convoy weren’t going quietly.However, two frees from Campbell, both of which were won by McGonagle, soon had four between them. In the dying moments, Bradley almost had a second Buncrana goal, but his effort was stopped on the line.Buncrana: Harry Doherty; Matthew Mulholland, Aedan Stokes, Conor Grant; William McLaughlin, Bruce Waldron, Stephen Doherty; Ryan McElhinney, Caolan McGonagle (0-1 ’45); Oisin O’Flaherty, Darach O’Connor, Ben Bradley; Oisin Doherty, John Campbell (1-7, 4f), Adrian Doherty. Subs: Odhrán Doherty (0-2) and Jack O’Loughlin for O’Connor and Mulholland (half-time), Ryan Bradley for B.Bradley (42), Peter McLaughlin for O’Flaherty (52), JP McColgan for Oisin Doherty (60).St Mary’s, Convoy: Sean Patton; Liam Prunty, John A Kee, Michael Patton (0-1); Bryan McNamee, John Doherty, Thomas McHugh; Packie Mailey, Dean Bonner; Paddy Dolan (0-3f), Raymond McNamee, Brendan Bonner; Keelan Gillen, Peter Blake, Joe McGill (0-5, 3f).
