Two journalists murdered just days apart in Venezuela New wave of censorship targeting critical media outlets May 21, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Ex-policeman gets 15 years for murdering newspaper photographer in 2006 VenezuelaAmericas June 15, 2020 Find out more Former policeman Boris Blanco Arcia’s conviction by a Caracas court on 19 May for the murder of newspaper photographer Jorge Aguirre (photo) shows that impunity is not inevitable, Reporters Without Borders says. The organisation nonetheless regrets that Blanco never explained why he shot Aguirre. News VenezuelaAmericas August 25, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts Organisation Coronavirus “information heroes” – journalism that saves lives RSF_en News Reporters Without Borders welcomes the 15-year prison sentence that a Caracas court imposed on former policemen Boris Blanco Arcia on 19 May for the murder of newspaper photographer Jorge Aguirre of the El Mundo daily (part of the Cadena Capriles group), who was shot dead while covering a protest against violent crime on 5 April 2006 (see release of 26 April 2006).“Aguirre’s murder amid a wave of angry protests against violent crime shocked both the media and the public,” the press freedom organisation said. “Justice has been done, and this verdict has shown yet again that impunity is not inevitable. At the same time, it is flustrating that Blanco was incapable of clearly explaining why he shot Aguirre.”Blanco’s trial on charges of homicide and illegally posing as a policeman lasted seven months. In the end, he was convicted only on the first charge. He has been held ever since his arrest on 13 April 2006, eight days after the murder.The protest Aguirre went to cover took place on the Caracas university campus and was prompted by the murder of three teenagers. Blanco, who had been fired from his job as a police officer in October 2005, was at the demonstration posing as a policeman on active duty. He ordered Aguirre to stop and, when Aguirre failed to comply, shot him three times at close range. As Aguirre fell to the ground, he managed to photograph Blanco in the process of fleeing on a motorcycle (see above). It was this photo that led to Blanco’s identification and arrest.Aguirre’s daughter, Jorbeth Aguirre, told Reporters Without Borders in an email message she was disappointed by the sentence as the maximum penalty for this kind of murder in Venezuela is 30 years in prison. She said she feared Blanco could be “out after four years.” to go further News Follow the news on Venezuela News Help by sharing this information January 13, 2021 Find out more

Cirkus, another nightclub venue on George Street, will also not reopen after lockdown restrictions are eased. On March 30 2021, the company, Cirkus Bars Ltd, was dissolved following a Gazette notice for compulsory strike-off, filed in November. Fever, one of Oxford’s leading nightclubs, is set to close permanently. The popular late bar and nightclub was located on 13-15 Magdalen Street and has been closed since the first national lockdown last March. A spokesperson for Fever in Oxford told Cherwell: “We can confirm that the lease on property has expired and returned to the landlord, meaning it will no longer operate as Fever. Where possible, we have redeployed our team to other sites.” Image Credit: Luca Volpi/CC BY-SA-3.0 Speaking about the closures, Joshua Roche, Event Manager at Varsity Events, told Cherwell: “I think generally it’s unfortunate regardless of who’s running which night. It’s nice for students to have an option of where to go and it creates a bit of variety in the city because each venue had its own feel to it and people went to different venues for different reasons. So it’s a real shame. Unfortunately, it’s been a tough year for everyone and it’s just one of those things that has happened.” He added: “We’ve got to make do with what’s around now and we will still provide a fantastic night life for students with what we have available.” The director of Cirkus Bars Ltd has been contacted for comment. The announcements of both Fever and Cirkus shutting their doors, follow the recent closures of other music and club venues across the city with both Emporium/Basement and Cellar closing permanently in 2019. After a petition to save The Wheatsheaf, one of Oxford’s last live gig venues, it has been announced that the planning application to convert the space into student flats has been withdrawn.

Port’s River Access, Automotive Connections Attract South Korea’s 4th Largest CompanyIndianapolis – POSCO, a multinational company headquartered in Pohang, South Korea, and the fifth-largest steel producer in the world, has announced plans to build a wire rod processing center at the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville, creating up to 60 high-wage jobs by 2018. POSCO is South Korea’s fourth largest company, behind Samsung Electronics, SK Holdings and Hyundai Motors, and is ranked No. 162 in Fortune’s Global 500.“Although we are located on different continents, South Korea and Indiana both share a reputation of excellence when it comes to advanced manufacturing,” said Governor Mike Pence. “Having a globally-focused company like POSCO select Indiana to grow its business is a strong endorsement of our state’s low-cost, low-tax business climate, robust transportation infrastructure and dynamic port system. This company could have established operations anywhere in the world, but has found exactly what it needed right here in Indiana. POSCO is a major supplier to the automotive industry which already supports more than 100,000 jobs in our state, and we look forward to the new jobs this state-of-the-art facility will create.”The $19 million project includes a 136,000-square-foot facility to be constructed on approximately 10 acres at the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville. POSCO plans to start construction later this year on the facility, which will be the company’s second steel processing line and fourth production line in the U.S. POSCO’s key drivers for locating at the port were the ability to ship steel into the Midwest by water, the close proximity to numerous steel and automotive-related companies and the attractive business environment in the Jeffersonville area.“We are very excited about the opportunity to develop our first Midwestern U.S. plant at the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville,” said POSCO AAPC Finance Director Kyu Tae Kim. “It is critical for our business to receive cargo by water and to be centrally located in the U.S. market. The Jeffersonville’s port location will allow us to connect with global markets and supply our U.S. automotive customers with ‘just-in-time’ deliveries. We want to thank the State of Indiana, the City of Jeffersonville, the Ports of Indiana and One Southern Indiana for helping us to make this project a reality.”POSCO was established in South Korea in 1968 and was the first Korean firm to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 1994. It operates 312 facilities in 43 countries around the world. POSCO’s Jeffersonville plant will process steel wire for fasteners, nuts and bolts used in the automotive industry and serve as a distribution center for other POSCO products. POSCO America, incorporated in 1984, maintains its U.S. headquarters in Fort Lee, N.J., with additional facilities in Houston, Texas, Troy, Mich., and McCalla, Ala. POSCO operates two integrated steel mills in South Korea and a joint venture facility with U.S. Steel, USS-POSCO Industries, located in California.“POSCO’s planned facility is a good fit for our port and its operations will create new business for other port companies,” said Rich Cooper, CEO for the Ports of Indiana. “Steel processors at our port currently supply components for all six of the top U.S. automakers as well as to many Tier 1 suppliers and other participants in the automotive industry’s supply chain. The port’s multimodal transportation options, including year-round barge access to the Gulf of Mexico, offer significant logistics cost savings for POSCO.”The Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville is home to 28 businesses, including a “steel campus” of 12 metal-processing companies serving the Midwest auto and appliance industries. The port handled over one million tons of steel cargoes in 2015 and 2.8 million in total shipments.The Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) offered POSCO up to $550,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $50,000 in training grants based on the company’s job creation plans. These incentives are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. Jeffersonville’s city council approved additional incentives at the request of the Jeffersonville Redevelopment Commission.“Having a global company of POSCO’s caliber select Southern Indiana and, specifically, the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville, for this advanced manufacturing project, is certainly cause for celebration,” said Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore. “The opening of two new interstate bridges over the Ohio River and the continued development of our port are key drivers for attracting world-class companies like POSCO and helping them grow in our community. We are grateful to our partners in economic development, One Southern Indiana and the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, for their efforts to ensure that investing in Jeffersonville is a seamless process.”FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
