Peru Extends State of Emergency in Five Provinces Due to Shining Path

first_img The Peruvian government extended the state of emergency in five provinces in the northeast for 60 days due to the presence of the Shining Path and drug trafficking guerrilla fronts on January 3, the official state bulletin reported. The affected areas, which will remain under the control of the Police and the Armed Forces, are the provinces of Marañón, Huamalíes and Leoncio Prado, in the region of Huanuco; the province of Tocache, in the region of San Martín; and the province of Padre Abad, in the Ucayali region. In these areas, the state of emergency has been in place since September 2011, when the government of President Ollanta Humala had been in power for less than three months. According to the government, these areas are not only affected by remnant fronts of the Shining Path, but also have “problems with drug trafficking and illegal coca leaf plantations, which is the main source of employment for people in the area.” While a state of emergency is in force in Peru, the rights to freedom, inviolability of the home, and freedom to assemble, as well as free movement are suspended.

first_imgNew York, NY – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle MagazineOn Monday, September 13, 2010, Rafael Nadal won his ninth Grand Slam title, beating Novak Djokovic on court at Flushing Meadows in the final of the US Open, the only major title which still eluded him.At just 24 years old, the Majorcan’s record-breaking run continued as he became the youngest player of the Open Era to win all four Grand Slam tournaments.For the third time in a row, he held the winner’s trophy aloft with his Richard Mille on his wrist.An ultimate watch, an extravagance, entirely in keeping with the great champion who wears it–The RM 027 Tourbillon boasts a few achievements of its own: the lightest mechanical watch ever designed and the first watch to be worn by a player in a Grand Slam. Once again Richard Mille has created a watch which represents the ultimate in luxury but is also light, extremely shock resistant and truly comfortable on the wrist, all values integral to the Richard Mille concept.The brand also took a deliberate risk in putting the watch to the ultimate test of a top-level tennis match. Everything in this watch is a feat, a technological accomplishment… And nothing has been left to chance. Years have been spent in research, and the use of innovative materials such as LITAL® for the moving parts and a carbon-based composite for the casing have resulted in a mechanical tourbillon watch weighing approximately 20 grams, strap included.Months of experimenting and countless tests on the arm of Rafael Nadal, who fully participated in designing and developing the model, were necessary to refine and perfect this ultra-technical model which can withstand the most violent of blows.After Roland Garros and Wimbledon, Rafa has triumphed at the US Open and chalked up another victory with his RM 027 on his wrist.www.richardmilleusa.comlast_img read more
