Toxic spill in Vietnam seriously damages fish beaches tourism

first_img Posted by Tuesday, August 23, 2016 Toxic spill in Vietnam seriously damages fish, beaches, tourism << Previous PostNext Post >> The Canadian Press HANOI — A Vietnamese government minister says it’s now safe to swim at most beaches in four central provinces where massive fish deaths occurred more than four months ago because of toxic chemicals released by a Taiwanese steel company.The online newspaper VnExpress quoted Environment Minister Tran Hong Ha as telling a conference Monday that aquaculture is now also safe in most areas, but that research by the Ministry of Health is needed to determine whether it’s safe to eat fish caught within 20 nautical miles (23 miles, 37 kilometres) off the coast of the four affected provinces.Professor Mai Trong Nhuan, who headed a team of Vietnamese and foreign scientists commissioned by the government to study the impact of the disaster, told the conference that the chemicals, including cyanide and carbolic acids, are becoming more dilute, according to VnExpress.Nhuan said the marine ecosystem, including coral reefs, sea grasses and other marine resources that were seriously damaged, has begun to recover.More news:  A new low for no-frills flying: easyJet assigns backless seat to passengerThe factory, owned by the Formosa Plastics Group, acknowledged in June that it was responsible for the pollution that killed large numbers of fish off the central Vietnamese coast, and pledged to pay $500 million to clean it up and compensate affected people.The country’s worst environmental disaster has devastated the fishing and tourism industries in the region.The government said in a report to the National Assembly in July that the disaster harmed the livelihoods of more than 200,000 people, including 41,000 fishermen.An estimated 115 tons of fish washed ashore along more than 200 kilometres (125 miles) of the central coast in April, the report said. The pollution sparked rare protests across the country.Formosa Plastics’s $10.6 billion steel complex in Ha Tinh province includes a steel plant, a power plant and a deep sea port, and is one of the largest foreign investments in Vietnam.

Following delays airlines can begin bundling Costa Rica exit tax into ticket

first_imgAirlines operating in Costa Rica finally can start including the country’s $29 exit tax into the cost of flights next week, according to Vice President Ana Helena Chacón, who made the announcement at the president’s weekly press conference at Casa Presidencial on Tuesday.The vice president said the Finance Ministry’s system for collecting the tax could be operational as early as the week of Feb. 23. The system, Exonet, was supposed to go live in December 2014 but had been tied up for months with technical delays and bureaucratic wrangling between the Foreign Ministry and the Immigration Administration. Chacón said that Exonet is in its final testing phase and previous concerns have been resolved.The tax, which has been in place since 2003, currently is paid at a special counter at the airport, Bancrédito branches, or at travel agencies. A passenger must pay it before checking in for a flight. The line to pay the tax has been known to snake out of the terminal at Juan Santamaría International Airport outside of San José, during the tourism high season from December to April.The International Airline Association released a statement in December 2014 saying that the exit tax would only be included in fares if passengers bought their tickets on or after the day of the announcement and left Costa Rica on or later than the date of the airlines’ implementation.Despite Chacón’s assurances, no airlines have yet announced when they will begin using the Exonet system.

African migrants find shelter in EU heart after hard journey

first_imgSince January, The Associated Press has followed a 45-member group of West Africans as they traveled by foot and cramped smugglers’ vehicles from Greece to Hungary via the Balkans. The route, accessed from refugee-clogged Turkey, is already the second-most popular way to gain illegal entry to the 28-nation European Union and its two biggest destinations: Germany and France. Unprecedented waves of Asian, Arab and African migrants are taking the slow, grueling route in preference to a sea crossing from North Africa, the quicker but reckless path to Italy. Thousands making that journey have drowned in the Mediterranean over the past year.Charlemagne and several other migrants interviewed by the AP have documented the Balkans’ own risks: deadly night trains that crush trekkers trapped on ridges, bridges and inside tunnels; robberies by criminal gangs and corrupt police hovering like vultures on the route; smugglers who hold their own clients hostage, raping women and beating men, until distant relatives wire extra cash; staggering hunger and thirst as hikes supposed to take days stretch into weeks.By April the travelers finally reached Hungary, from which they could travel by jitney cabs and public transport links within the largely passport-free EU to Germany and France. The vast majority of the West Africans reached their destinations by May, having paid a series of Asian and African smugglers more than 5,000 euros ($5,500) to cover every link in the chain from Turkey to the EU’s eastern frontier. BRIETLINGEN, Germany (AP) — Hilarion Charlemagne presents his tattered sneakers as a badge of honor. Worn bare and fraying, they tell the tale of his journey across two continents that often felt like it might never end.Charlemagne has finally arrived in his promised land — and can feel the soil of Germany through the holes in his heels. “I won’t be needing these shoes much longer,” said the 45-year-old teacher, who has spent four years traveling from his native Ivory Coast through the Sahara, Asia Minor and the Balkans to reach this moment of safety and hope. Top Stories The woman, who didn’t want to be named, said her family fled their native Poland in 1945 as the Russians closed in, so she relates to the Africans’ “feeling of the unknown” as newcomers.For now, Charlemagne is focused on quickly learning enough German to demonstrate his earnestness and impress his hosts, to win residency and start to earn cash that he can wire home to relatives.With two sons aged 8 and 10 living with a sister in Ivory Coast following the break-up of his marriage, he hopes he eventually can bring them both to Germany. He describes Ivory Coast as an economic dead end that imprisons his boys in poverty.“In my life there’s been a lot of suffering. I wouldn’t like for my children to suffer the way I have,” he said, tears welling, anguish in his voice. “Even if I have to sacrifice myself for their future, I’m always ready to do that for my children — to give them their own wings.”___Pogatchnik reported from Dublin.

Germany received 202,834 asylum-seekers in 2014 — nearly a third of the EU total — and expects that number to double, at least, this year to another record high.By contrast migrants arriving in France have described difficulty in finding shelter, reduced to sofa-surfing with friends or sleeping rough, and receiving only petty cash from France’s struggling asylum support systems. France already has conferred refugee status on more than 250,000 foreigners, and last year received another 101,895 asylum applicants, second most in the EU. The French Office for Protection of Refugees and Expatriates cannot directly house most of them with waiting lists of a year or more.German authorities have placed Charlemagne and three other West African migrants in a two-apartment residence in the Lower Saxony town of Brietlingen, population 3,400, where fields of strawberries and white asparagus dominate the landscape.

around failure, as one of his final legal recourses to save his own life plays outIf that appeal fails and the pattern of ever-increasing delays between sentencing and execution holds true Rodriguez may not be injected with a lethal cocktail of chemicals until he’s in his 70s or olderThe delay between sentencing and execution for death row inmates across the nation has increased from about six years in the mid-1980s to more than 16 years in 2012 according to data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics Only five inmates sentenced to death after Rodriguez’s sentencing have been executed Unlike Rodriguez all of them dropped their appeals or asked to be put to deathA law professor and expert on criminal sentencing said a mix of factors have stretched out delays: many legal avenues for appeal; a shortage of chemicals used in lethal injections and questions about their use; and a strong nationwide push by groups opposed to the death penalty to help inmates on death row“It’s a very long period between when somebody gets sentenced to death and when they even get close to the execution chamber” said Douglas Berman a law professor at Ohio State UniversitySupport for the death penalty has been waning for years polling shows as have the number of death sentences issued Berman said that may have given anti-death penalty organizations “an opportunity to highlight what they perceive to be systemic problems”“The fewer cases there are the more exposure each case gets” he saidLinda Walker said she’s not surprised her daughter’s killer is still alive“He’s never been held accountable for anything he’s ever done” she said “I knew he’d probably exercise his right to continue to fight”A federal penaltyDru Sjodin’s death shocked the regionThe 22-year-old college student disappeared from Grand Forks in November 2003 Her body was discovered nearly five months later in a ravine near Crookston MinnAfter a grueling 12-week trial a jury convicted Rodriguez of kidnapping raping and murdering Sjodin Weeks later the jury sentenced him to death – the first death penalty handed down in North Dakota in more than a century North Dakota abolished its death penalty in 1973 Six states have abolished the death penalty in the last decade bringing the tally to 16 states that ban capital punishmentBut Rodriguez was tried in federal court which was possible because he took Sjodin’s body across state linesRodriguez and the nearly 60 others on federal death row in Terre Haute have fewer options for appeal than do inmates convicted at the state level legal experts say which can result in shorter delays While someone in death row in Texas can appeal to state and federal courts Rodriguez has no state courts to appeal toRob Warden executive director of the Center on Wrongful Convictions at Northwestern University School of Law said defendants sentenced at the state level have up to nine layers of appeal Federal inmates like Rodriguez have just five such layers he saidOnly three inmates convicted in federal court have been executed since the Supreme Court reaffirmed the constitutionality of the death penalty in 1976 Their average delay between sentencing and execution was about six yearsRodriguez is down to what’s generally considered an inmate’s last appeal His attorneys filed a habeas corpus motion in 2011 to appeal his death sentence arguing that he was denied effective counsel during his trial was insane at the time he killed Sjodin and that he is mentally diminished making him ineligible for executionBut a federal inmate hasn’t been executed since 2003 due in part to a court challenge to the use of lethal injection said Richard Dieter executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center All scheduled executions have been stayed as that case has proceeded through the legal system over the last six-plus years Dieter said‘Juries are more skeptical’Nearly 1400 people have been executed since 1976 according to the Death Penalty Information CenterAnother roughly 3000 inmates nationwide are awaiting their deaths according to the Bureau of Justice StatisticsThe number of death sentences and executions has been slipping as the delay times between them have grown statistics showDieter rejected Berman’s idea that the decreasing use of the death penalty has allowed groups like his own to pounce on cases dragging out execution dates Instead he said he thinks the stories of wrongfully convicted inmates – like a man on death row for 30 years in Louisiana who was exonerated just this month – have made the legal system and the public more wary of sentencing someone to death“Juries are more skeptical” Dieter said “It’s also caused the courts to look more closely for mistakes to allow more hearings or testing”Warden from Northwestern’s Center on Wrongful Convictions said there have been wrongful convictions on death row in Illinois Twenty out of the 303 people sentenced to death were later exonerated he said“We’re supposed to be reserving the death penalty for the worst of the worst If we can’t even get that fundamental question of who’s guilty versus who is innocent right how can we possibly answer the question who deserves to live and who deserves to die” he askedNearly eight years after her daughter’s killer was sentenced to death Walker said she tries as hard as she can to accept that Rodriguez
